    On the one hand you state you desire to perform a no backup clean restore and follow that soliciting a method on how to restore some aspects with a backup.

    Although your question is not complex what your asking is complicated.

    You can do that
    1- before full clean restore connect iPhone.
    2- go to settings - iCloud and turn all of them off.
    3- open "iTools" you can download it from here.
    4- and back up all what you need (contacts - sms - apps - .....etc).
    5- restore then open iTools and import what you want.

    or the easiest way is "iCloud".

    My apology for the confusion and thanks for your reply

    What I wanna know is how to backup my current SMS history and selective apps' data, then perform full clean restore, after that how to restore only the SMS history and selective apps' data I backup earlier?

    Hope my explanation clear enough.

    Thanks for your input. The link doesn't work.

    I would like to do the same. You can backup app data using DataDeposit from Cydia, but I am having difficulty's copying over my sms.db to the new phone. You used to be able to copy the sms.db file from the /private/var/mobile/library/SMS folder, but that does not seem to be working for me.

    Anyone else have any ideas?

    Probably not an option but I think iExplorer may do what you want IF its been updated for iOS 7.

    Use iBackupBot, works flawlessly for what you're trying to do. If you need help using it, let me know. :)

    When I try to access permission, a message popout

    "SSH (port 22) is not detected, make sure OpenSSH is installed and activated."

    What should I do next?
