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. (no jailbreak for iOS 7.1 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 to jailbreak iOS 7 on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

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 6.0. Also, you’ll want to make sure that you backup your device using iCloud or iTunes. We don’t anticipate any issues, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Update: for those of you having issues, the evad3rs have provided a possible resolution:

Step 1: Download evasi0n7 for Mac via our downloads page, and extract the package. Make sure you download the latest version available.

Step 2: Double click the evasi0n7 app to run it.

Step 3: If your device has a passcode set, unlock your device and go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock > and select Turn Passcode Off.

Step 4: Plug in your iDevice to your computer, and wait for evasi0n to recognize it.

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: You’ll then click that button, and sit back while the app does its thing.

Step 6: Finally, you’ll be asked to tap the evasi0n7 icon on your device’s Home screen

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. Windows users can click here for a separate tutorial.

  • Saeed Baidoon

    Do we restore the backup of iCloud after restoring the device?

  • Leanthony Moses

    How will we know when Cydia or Saurik updates anything?

    • Dylan Tyler

      That’s what I wanna know.

  • Sam

    Suggestion for a lot of you people, if you have never jailbroke a iPhone before go and watch a lot of YouTube videos and read articals about it.. Read up about how to restore your phone if it gets bricked or stuck in boot loop.. Do not just go straight into a jailbreak without knowledge of how it operates.. And another thing I would suggest do not jailbreak your device yet, wait a couple of weeks until they sort cydia out properly for ios7 a lot of apps on cydia are only ios6 compatable. If you get any problems follow me on twitter and tweet me and I will get back to you as soon as I can..

    Ok, I jailbroken my iPhone 4S iOS 7.0.4 and it worked but I didn’t know that the apps weren’t compatible yet. Will Cydia give me an update when the apps and stuff start working?

  • Lizzie Talley

    I am stuck on apple logo but my computer won’t recognize that my iphone is connected ( i guess it got unplugged) so i cannot restore or anything. I have done a hard reset multiple times, and no luck. If anyone has any way to help, pleaseeeee let me know!!

    • Abhimeteora

      Hey, What if you have not backedup beforehand… cant someone flash the stock firmware?

  • GamingJockey

    The Jailbreak utility says it needs a working Internet Connection on my Mac !! and on Windows 8 it crashes with a dialog box !!

  • Ryan

    My iPad is stuck on the Apple Screen. What do i do? (Holding any buttons will not do anything) (Pluging in the charger will not do anything) (connecting to iTunes will not do anything)

    • Dylan Tyler

      Hold the home button and lock button until the screen goes black then let go of the lock button but not the home button (while doing all this the iPad should be connected to iTunes.) then iTunes will recognize your iPad and your only option is to restore the iPad.

  • Naveed Ahmad

    My Iphone 5 is stuck on Activation Lock, I dont have the original owner icloud ID or password. How can I jailbreak this device. As when I connect it to evasion it said device must be activate first. Any work around to get the jailbreak without activation.

    • Big K

      I’ve asked this already and no responses yet

      • Dylan Tyler

        You can’t do anything until you activate the phone with the ema and password that it asks for. Sorry.

    • sampson01

  • Handren Sleman

    hello can we jaill brake the ipad without activaiting it ?

    • sampson01

      No,
      Is the iPad wifi only or 3G
      If wifi only, activation entails plugging into iTunes after it is in the ‘clean’ factory default state (where it will prompt you for language preference and initial setup info) then just enter your iTunes username and password.
      Let it do its thing until the reboot then disconnect from iTunes.
      You should now have ‘your iPad’ with no installed apps. But the background should be the old one, and calendar, bookmarks, Et al should be as they were.

  • chuckabunch

    YAY! Initially TetherMe wouldn’t load with the new jailbreak (iphone 5 ios 7.0.4.), but several minutes later when Cydia flashed a substrate update it installed and worked like a charm. Thank you Evasi0n!

  • Nikolai Krogstad

    Hi, i tried to jailbreak my iphone 5, but got stuck at the boot and cant get out. My powerbutton doesnt work so what should i do?? Please help me

    • Dylan Tyler

      There’s programs on the internet that will force your phone into DFU. Look it up on YouTube as I’m not exactly sure how iTunes will then recognize it and your only option is to restore your phone. This happened to my iPad as we’ll. not my iPhone though. My iPad is now jail broken as well. The jailbreak is brand new so there’s obviously gonna be bugs.

      • Nikolai Krogstad

        redsn0w says that ispw is unsupported, can you please give me some programs ?? for mac is prefered

  • latint81

    Been 100% honest with you and after testing 7.1 beta 2 I can’t go down to 7.04 the IU is way perfect and I feel happy with 7.1 .

    I don’t need nothing from cydia other than tether me . But now that I have spend the 40 bucks on the apps I use to get cracked my investment is pay off.

  • adam redling

    my iphone is stuck on launch screen, i try to reboot and it gets stuck again on launch screen. itunes is not recognizing that it is plugged in. what should i do?

  • Liam Smith

    I’ve just successfully jailbroken an iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.4 that was updated on an OTA version. I had no issues when performing the jailbreak, never have with Evasi0n. I would suggest to take precautions though, I’m apparently one of the lucky few not to be plagued with issues regarding an iOS 7 jailbreak.

  • Stephen Morgan

    Well the jailbreak worked for my iPad air but there are no packages or sources in cydia yet, just error messages

  • Quincy Hamilton

    My evasion won’t open it says “cannot be opened because of an error”. I’ve tried the download 4 times and everytime I try to open I get same error. I’ve tried the solution of right clicking and clicking open, but it still doesn’t open. PLEASE HELP I JUST WANT TO USE IT N JAILBREAK MY PHONE!!!!

  • Patrick Kemp
