-SemiRestore supports Windows XP SP3 or higher.
-Windows users must have iTunes, and .NET 3.5 or higher installed.
-There may be a better way to fix your current problem. For example, to fix “Safe Mode” issues, you can just uninstall Mobile Substrate from Cydia.
-Like any other restore, make sure you backup your data if you want it later.
-Avoid using your iOS device or anything related to iTunes or XCode during the Semi-Restore. Why not actually go outside?
