Problems with evasi0n7? Here’s what to do

By , Dec 22, 2013

evasi0n7 done

So by now you’ve probably figured out that the evad3rs released a new untethered jailbreak this morning for iOS 7. It’s called evasi0n7, and it’s compatible with all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.4.

We’ve posted tutorials on how to use the new utility to jailbreak your device on both Mac and Windows computers, but for those of you having issues, we thought we’d try and elaborate on things. Here are some answers to a few popular FAQ…

Jailbreak is stuck

The entire jailbreak 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.

Jailbreak was unsuccessful

We’ve been getting a lot of comments from readers who are experiencing a wide range of problems after using evasi0n7, including a looping Apple logo and crashes from stock apps like Mail. If you are experiencing these or any other issues, try doing a full restore of your device and then running evasi0n7 again.

If this doesn’t work, don’t worry. Pod2g says the team is working hard to fix initial issues, and we’re expecting an update sometime in the near future. So sit tight.

Cydia errors

Today’s release of evasi0n7 caught everyone off guard, including Saurik. And because there was never a tethered jailbreak for iOS 7 that had fully working kernel patches, he hasn’t been able to test much.  So he has no idea what will and won’t work, and has asked that folks bear with him as he sorts everything out.

Also keep in mind that as more people learn about the release of the iOS 7 jailbreak, more will be logging into Cydia. When evasi0n for iOS 6 was released, Cydia had problems keeping up with the traffic, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this happened again.

We don’t expect these issues to last long, as Saurik continues to update Cydia over the next several hours and days.

This tweak doesn’t work

We’ve been getting a lot of questions from users regarding tweak compatibility in iOS 7. We are currently compiling a list, but our boilerplate response has been that most tweaks probably don’t work correctly. Again, developers were given little (if any) heads up to this jailbreak release and thus have not had the chance to test their apps and make the necessary updates.

We know for sure that tweaks utilizing mobile substrate are out:

Expect this to improve obviously as time goes on, and tweak updates hit Cydia. And again, stay tuned for our list of iOS 7-compatible tweaks.

If you have any further questions, concerns or comments, please leave that feedback in the comment section below. If another big question comes up, we’ll update this post. In the meantime, if you haven’t already, you can find evasi0n7 on our Downloads page. Also make sure you refer to our evasi0n tutorial for Mac and evasi0n tutorial for Windows if you need any help with the process.

  • Hananiah Bechard

    I jailbroke a spare iPhone 4s that I had lying around, just to see how good the new jailbreak was. Well, now I have someone wanting to buy my iPhone off me, and they don’t need the jailbreak(don’t prefer it either). I’ve tried on multiple occasions to restore my iPhone, but to no avail. I keep getting the “3004 error message”, saying it was unable to complete the restore. Any help?

  • Amir Rais

  • Ariel

    I downloaded the evasion7 jailbreak and it worked fine until it ended and there was no Cydia app and there was only my apps and the evasion7 app. When I opened the evasion7 app it completely froze my phone and I had to restart my phone by holding down the lock and the home button simultaneously. Am I the only one that had this problem?
