How to fix some mysterious problems.

I was playing around with iCleaner Pro NON-test mode and accidentally deleted all my keyboards except for english and emoticon. After doing some research, I figured out restore was my only choice as I cant retrieve the keyboard files from anywhere. So my question is can I use semi-restore to restore a factory system with the keyboard files but still keep my jailbreak?

I didn't pirate iCleaner, I just deleted my keyboard files by accident.

I don't think Semi restore or similar options can fix system files. It only removes/restores files that are modified through the jail breaking process. I am sure you have to do a full iTunes restore.

Semi-Restore does not repair/restore system files. My advice is to do a full restore and rejailbreak. Well, a restore from backup may fix this too, but I'd do a full restore anyway.

Couldn't he just download an IPSW and extract the missing files? It's not like a full install, I don't see why not.
