Important! Read me!

  • Backup your device using iTunes (or iCloud) before using evasi0n. If something breaks, you’ll always be able to recover your data.
  • Please disable the lock passcode of your iOS device before using evasi0n. It can cause issues.
  • Avoid all iOS and iTunes related tasks until evasi0n is complete. Why not just enjoy a brief break from the computer to stretch your legs?
  • If the process gets stuck somewhere, it’s safe to restart the program, reboot the device (if necessary by holding down Power and Home until it shuts down), and rerun the process.
  • If you get an error on OS X 10.8 saying that evasi0n can’t be opened, control-click (or right-click) the app and on the revealed context menu, choose ‘Open.’ On the ensuing dialogue box, choose ‘Open’ as well.
  • Warning! Over The Air updates of iOS 7 are known to create an issue and make the jailbreak fail. Some devices are then stuck on the Apple Boot Logo. Until we fix that, please restore your device to 7.0.4. with iTunes first.
  • Warning! Many Cydia tweaks are not yet compatible with iOS 7. Please always backup your phone before installing new tweaks from Cydia as your iPhone could be stuck in the boot process. The situation will improve as developers will update their software.

UPDATE:

Fix Issue “Stuck at Apple Logo”

Many users are reporting “Stuck at Apple Boot Logo”. If this is the case with you, you might have not read the instructions carefully. It’s clearly stated that you must restore to the full IPSW of iOS via iTunes before proceeding to jailbreak. OTA (Over The Air) update of iOS mostly cause issues with jailbreak. If you are going to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad on iOS 7 first time, then go ahead after restoring to iOS 7.0.4 (currently latest public release) via iTunes and then later use Evasi0n 7 as explained above.

If you have already stucked at the Apple Boot Logo. Don’t panic and follow as below. With this process you will loos everything on your device if you haven’t already backed it up.

  1. Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your machine (PC or Mac).
  2. Enter DFU Mode. (how to enter dfu mode?)
  3. Now restore via iTunes.

After once restoring is done to iOS 7.0.4, you can jailbreak with evasi0n 7 as told above.

 

Update

Cydia maker @Saurik wondered on the release. He stated on Twitter that the Cydia build included in version 1.0 of evasi0n 7 isn’t official. He doesn’t have clue what will work and what will not.
