ios 7 jailbreak

As we just told you, the evad3rs have released a new jailbreak tool called evasi0n7, and it allows you to easily jailbreak iOS 7. The good news is that the hack works with all flavors of iOS 7, which includes iOS 7.0.1, iOS 7.0.2, iOS 7.0.3, 7.0.4, 7.0.5, and 7.0.6 (iOS 7.1 cannot be jailbroken at this time).

As usual, the evad3rs have made the utility fairly easy to use. But also as usual, we know there will be folks out there looking for a bit of help using it, so we’ve created an easy-to-follow tutorial to show you how. This is our Windows guide (our Mac guide can be found here)…

Note: Again, this jailbreak is only compatible with compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.6. That means it won’t work on the Apple TV or any devices running iOS 6.x. Also, you’ll want to make sure that you backup your device using iCloud or iTunes. And for those of you who have updated via OTA, you’ll want to back it up in iTunes and do a full restore before applying evasi0n7.

Step 1: Download evasi0n7 for Windows via our downloads page. Make sure you download the latest version available.

Step 2: Extract the download onto your desktop and open the evasi0n folder. Right click on the evasi0n.exe file and select Run as administrator. If a User Access Control window pops up, choose yes.

Step 3: Make sure your device passcode is disabled, if you ever set one up. To disable your passcode lock, go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock > and choose Turn Passcode Off.

Step 4: Plug in your iDevice to your PC.

Step 5: You should see a message on the tool that it has detected your device, and the Jailbreak button should become clickable.

Step 6: To begin the jailbreak process, click that button and sit back and let the app do its thing.

Step 7: Eventually, you’ll be asked to tap the evasi0n7 icon on your device’s Home screen, which will complete the process. 

Step 8: Once the jailbreak process has completed, you’ll be taken to your Lock screen. From there, you can Slide to unlock your device and where you’ll find the Cydia icon on your Home screen’s second page.

And that’s all there is to it. The entire process takes around 5 minutes, and your device will reboot a few times. If the process gets stuck at any point, it’s safe to restart the program, reboot the device (if necessary by holding down Power and Home), and rerun the process.

It’s worth restating that Saurik was caught by surprise, as we all were, with this release, so he hasn’t had the chance to test things out yet. As such, we imagine you’ll run into issues with both Cydia and your favorite tweaks, so be prepared for initial compatibility issues.

Anyway, if you have questions, concerns, or comments, then please leave your feedback in the comment section below. Please be willing to help your fellow jailbreakers as you’ve been so eager to do so in the past.

  • ZED87

    ok so all went well with my jailbreaking procedure and I have the CYDIA
    app on the home screeen of iphone 4 ios 7.0.4. But when I try to install
    a cracked app on my iphone it gives me “fail to install package”. To
    verify the jailbreak I downloaded and used CopyTrans Contacts and it
    showed me that the device is NOT jailbroken.
    So the issue is, I
    have Cydia on home screen but cracked .ipa apps are not installing and
    CopyTrans Contacts shows that my iphone is not jailbroken. Any
    suggestions what could be the problem? Can any1 else check their
    jailbroken device with CopyTrans Contacts and reply whether their device
    is shown as jailbroken?

  • Larschr5

    I am a jailbreaking virgin and have a few questions before I attempt to jailbreak my iPhone 4 running 7.04.

    1) Can I still use iCloud to backup my data after jailbreaking?
    2) If the jailbreak is causing trouble can I then restore my device and still get data back from iCloud?
    3) Can I still use the Apple App Store after jailbreaking?

    If you have other important things I need to know before attempting to jailbreak please share.

    Thanks guys 🙂

  • Declan O’ Donnell

    I have a problem. Firstly I backed up my phone. But I updated from 5.2 to 7.0.4 OTA and ran evasion. I ran into some problems so I did the factory restore to new phone, to 7.0.4, then I ran evasion and the jailbreak worked fine, updated Cydia, etc. Then to get all my contacts, texts and apps back I ran the restore from the back-up I created (the backup file was approx. 4GB), evasion recommended backing-up after completing the jailbreak. When the back up completed I noticed I was missing the messages app, so I ran the back-up again…4hrs later…I released all the default icons – phone, messages, contacts, notes are missing, but all the apps are there, including the ones I purchased.

    I am not sure what to do or what the problem is. it must have something to do with jailbreaking the phone before running the restore from back-up…I have checked restrictions, etc and they are not simply turned off, they have been removed from the ‘phone’.

    I think I need to run another factory restore to 7.0.4, then restore from back-up, then run the jailbreak. Any thoughts? Has anyone had this problem and resolved it? It just takes so long to restore!

    I have an Iphone 4. I updated to 7.0.4 OTA shortly after it came out. Prior the phone was running 5.2, jailbroken with Cydia.

  • Austin Copeland

    I was able to jail break my I pad, but the jail break doesn’t work on my I phone 5 for some reason. After it asks you to tap the evasion icon after the first reboot it gets hung up on a blank white evasi0n screen and shuts down the whole process. Has any one else had this problem? Would it help me to fully restore my phone? If some one could help I would really appreciate it.
