    Hello All,
    I've spent the past 2 hours searching for an answer on this forum and on google. Please forgive me if I overlooked something.

    2 weeks ago, I jailbroke using evasion on iOS 7.0.4 with my iPhone 5. For some reason, my backup from restore never completed. The process is done but there are several missing files in my camera roll (like 100+ images). They just show up as grey boxes in the photos app and broken images in text message history. I would like to restore from this icloud backup to get my photos and other missing data. But I would like to keep my jailbreak or at least have the option to re-jailbreak.

    Is this possible? If so, what is the best way to go about it?

    Thanks so much!

    Yes, you can retain your JB. Open Cydia, install OpenSSH and OpenSSL.

    Then run SemiRestore7 (one tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNIyOVwleNY). This will wipe your phone but retain your jailbreak. After that, select to restore your iCloud backup.

    Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be an option for me because I don't have private access to a PC; just macbook. Looks like the app is not ready for Mac just yet. I'll keep checking for its release. Thanks!
