Evasi0n7 1.0.3 is out with support for iOS 7.1 beta 3, Retina iPad mini boot loop fix

By , Jan 11, 2014

evasi0n7 1-0-3

Evasi0n 7 1.0.3 has just been released for OS X and Windows with a fix for the boot loop issue that has been plaguing Retina iPad mini users. The release, which is the fourth of the jailbreak tool, also includes support for iOS 7.1 beta 3 and a new Cydia bundle.

Those already successfully running evasion7 1.0.2 on their devices do not have to update, but those having problems with their Retina iPad mini (I believe cellular models are the problem) or those wanting to update to iOS 7 beta 3 may want to check it out…

Although I’ve not personally experienced the reboot loop issue in jailbreaking my Retina iPad mini, I have seen it mentioned quite a bit on Twitter, and it seems to be popular topic on the JailbreakQA website. So it’s obviously nice to have this problem resolved.

You can download evasi0n7 1.0.3 directly from our downloads page, and if you need any help, we have great tutorials on how to use the program for both Mac and Windows computers. Be sure to share your experience and/or questions in the comments below!

  • Kenneth Torres

    How about a fix for stock apps like weather, calculator, or the stocks app? I’ve tried to fix it through ifile by deleting the 2 files i forgot the name though. Help please.

    • Andy

      Do you mean the status bar fix? Search for StatusBarFix2 on Cydia. And for the weather information to show in NC, you need to turn on location services and do this: http://www.reddit (DOT) com/r/jailbreak/comments/1uiucv/help_i_think_ive_broken_my_notification_center/ceiju36

      • Keir Dicus

        I did not find statusbarfix2 on cydia.
        I searched and nothing came up.
        I put spaces in between, and nothing relevant came up

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        You need to add this repo:

        repo.pnre .co.vu (remove the space).

        To add it, open Cydia and do the following:

        Manage –> Sources –> Edit –> Add

    • Rafael Damasceno

      How about not pirating apps? The only cause to that behavior is AppSync. To fix it, uninstall AppSync, reboot (don’t respring, actually reboot), navigate to /var/mobile/Library/Caches and delete the files com.apple.mobile.installation.plist and com.apple.LaunchServices-054.csstore. After that, reboot again (same as before). The apps should get rebuild and work properly once again.

      • Tobias9413

        False. I had this problem and don’t have AppSync installed. I fixed it by getting StatusBarFix2.

      • al7oot

        I searched for StatusBarFix2 I didn’t find it ..

      • shojus

        How bout minding your own damn business and quit worrying about what others do… I have been using Appsync since the IOS 7 jailbreak and have had NO adverse affects. It’s people that don’t know what they are doing! Point blank! Don’t assume, or you make an ass out of YOU and ME, I’m sure you have heard that before? LOL Just messin with ya man! ;)

    • Chliii

      Safari/mail fix is the answer. Iphonecake repo has it

      • patrick

        That fix probably does the same Thing as deleting those 2 files Rafael damasceno told to delete, it works

  • ɑղժɾҽա

    Finally!!! I’ve been waiting so long for this!

    • Palani

      How do i get 7.1 beta 3 and without Activationen? I dont have dev account??

      • ɑղժɾҽա

        http://udidregistrationsdotcom
        It’s the cheapest and fastest UDID registration on the web! I can guarantee that it is legit! I got stuck on the activation screen back on iOS 7.1 beta 2. Now I’m ready for iOS 8 beta since my UDID is registered now!

      • Palani

        but i think there is a way out of buying? i have seen it before?

      • ɑղժɾҽա

        There is not a workaround to this. You must have your UDID registered with a valid Developer account to use iOS 7.1 beta 2 or 3.

      • Kamal Chhabria

        Download the software file then connect the iPhone to your mac or pc and PRESS SHIFT + UPDATE only DO NOT RESTORE it will then automatically bypass the activation but only if u update and not restore..!!!

      • norbi2010

        That does not work anymore.

  • Kruno

    So I can JB 7.1 beta3 but I can´t buy anything, right?

  • Chris Gilmore

    Is there any betas on torrents that work? Would it be worth it to get this anyway?

    • Jimothy

      Please only install Beta if you’re a developer; there is a reason that not everyone can have that update.

      • Chris Gilmore

        Yeah yeah… I believed that crap too until I decided to get iOS 7 about 4 months before it came to public and loved every second. I get what most of y’all are saying, but I’m a little more experienced than a regular user.

  • Palani

    Hallo guys! If i dont have a Dev Account, can i still get 7.1 beta 3 now?? PLZ HELP!

    • Gróf Attila

      nope, even if you somehow install it, it can stuck your phone forever.

      • Palani

        No u dont easy kid haha:) have done it 3 times and back in 7.0.4 still :)

    • Kamal Chhabria

      Download the software file then connect the iPhone to your mac or pc and PRESS SHIFT + UPDATE only DO NOT RESTORE it will then automatically bypass the activation but only if u update and not restore..!!! :) it works i promise

      • Palani

        No mate it wont work i have tryed:( ?

  • Palani

    Guys? How do i get 7.1 beta 3 and use it? WITHOUT activationen or something?

  • Palani

    Hello guys. How do i get 7.1 Beta 3, i dont have Dev Account and i keep getting activatonen something? How do u guys do? plz share:/

    • Framboogle

      Actually it’s very easy.

      Pay up $99 like everyone else and don’t use beta software unless you are a developer.

      • Palani

        so there is nothing to do unless i pay 99??

      • Andrew’s OwlCity

        SHIFT + UPDATE

      • Palani

        Mate yes i know, but when done it wants me to activate with my dev account??

      • Palani

        Someone help plz:/ ?

      • Blip dude

        Like someone already said, if you are not a registered developer, don’t use Beta software. I’m sure someone may be able to help, but don’t be surprised if you are now stuck with a $650 brick.

      • Palani

        No im on 7.0.4 agian jailbreaked, but still thinks there is a way to beta:)

      • Brandon Miranda

        Yes there are ways.

      • Palani

        Like? How?

      • Brandon Miranda

        Well you download the ipsw to shift update and boom that easy

      • Brandon Miranda

        But seriously don’t do it because if it expires and 7.1 comes out no jailbreak for you sir!

      • Lady GAGA

        Lol

      • Jimothy

        My favorite response.

  • RFMFP

    A little help please. I got iOS 7.1 beta 1 and I can’t upgrade to beta 2 OTA and I can’t find the firmware on evad3rs site. Can somebody give me a little hand?

    • ɑղժɾҽա

      You can do an OTA update if you register your UDID at http://udidregistrationsdotcom. That’s where I got mine registered. I didn’t want to pay $99 again. But please, if you have no idea how to use beta software, don’t install beta software.

      • RFMFP

        Previous I had 7.1 beta 1 and I appeared to update to beta 2 but instead I put it back on 7.0.4. And now I reinstall 7.1 beta 1 but it doesn’t show a software update.

      • ɑղժɾҽա

        Download the iOS 7.1 beta 3 iPSW from ATFDL if you don’t have a developer account.

  • Ben

    Great!

  • Ron Ocho

    So is it ok to leave the SIM in the cellular ipad mini retina now during the process? Ty in advance

  • Keelyn Wheeler

    does this version fix the boot loop from a full poweroff on
    the 5s running on 7.1 beta 3?

    • Lance Baker

      No one ever seems to be addressing this. It’s a bit irritating.

    • ɑղժɾҽա

      I’m not sure what you’re talking about. I couldn’t jailbreak iOS 7.1 beta 3.

      • Keelyn Wheeler

        There is a version of the jailbreak tool that allows 7.1 beta 3 to be jailbroken. The problem is after you install tweaks, and do a power off the phone will go into a boot loop and you have to do a full restore.

  • G-HaB

    i go to reset my settings and after resetting the setting my jailbreak is gone cydia and all the downloaded tweaks and apps are gone

    • Lance Baker

      What settings? Sound like you did a factory reset.

      • G-HaB

        i went into settings-general-reset all settings after it was done everything was gone

      • Jonathan

        That is a big no-no in jailbreak.
        When jailbreaking, it moves stuff around to make room for Cydia. So when using the reset, it ends up deleting import files. So. Time to restore.

  • Omar Wright

    Will this work for OS X 10.6.8? The last Evasion7 program wouldn’t open on my Mac.

    • mwpitt52

      No you have to be running 10.7 or higher. Evasi0n revised requirements.

  • Tobias9413

    I like this but I think you guys should put a warning about doing this for those who don’t have a dev account. I guarantee that about 90% of those who don’t have a dev account and manage to get the Beta installed will get a bricked iDevice when the beta expires and won’t know how to fix it.

    • Palani

      U just restore and u go agian ?

      • Tobias9413

        Basically. But by the time this beta expires then ios 7.1 may be out and may have patched the jb and people will complain about loosing their JB and what not.

  • itabmedia

    Anyone getting “Failed to Fetch”Cydia BigBoss repo error after using 1.0.3?
    It’s a mismatch error when first downloading the new index files.
    Will this fix itself over time? Thanks

    • Emanuel

      Same happen to my iPad mini ”Failed to Fetch”Cydia BigBoss hope theres a fix for this.

    • ɑղժɾҽա

      I’m getting this error too! I really hope that it’s something on the bigboss server side and that it will fix itself over time. I can’t install any tweaks because I need to download preferenceloader from the bigboss repo.

    • Mark Hardin

      If you need it now, restore device to 7.0.4 again and rejailbreak with 1.0.2 version of evasion then upgrade the untether within cydia. Only solution I found.

  • Mi ke

    still getting boot loop mini retina tmobile 32gb

    restored with 7.0.4 ipsw and tried to jb with 1.0.3 twice. nothin.

    • Ron Ocho

      me too and Im stuck in that boot loop thing? what do we do next, my iphones worked fine with the same windows computer and and earlier version of evasion no problems This was my 1st attempt with my t-mobile 16gig mini retina and evasion 1.0.3

      • Ron Ocho

        I restored also with itunes 7.0.4 because i couldnt remember if i originally had 7.0.3 and did a OTA to 7.0.4 so I followed everything by the book on here and now boot loop stuck

      • Mi ke

        yep tried redoing the whole process a few times restoring to 7.0.4 then jail breaking with 1.0.3
        no luck.
        boot loop.
        then forced to restore again in iTunes.
        my 5s worked with no problems on the same network after restoring.

      • Ron Ocho

        ty so much for your FAST reply here I appreciate it very much! Well I just got it restored back again took DFU mode for itunes to recognize it and get out of boot loop so I take it I shouldn’t even try again seeing your response said you tried a few times PS- I took my SIM card out during the JB attempt did you have yours in or out?

      • Mi ke

        np
        yeah that’s the only way I’ve found to get out of the boot loop. dfu mode and restore to have iTunes recognize.
        actually I tried the sim in and out on 1.0.2 as pod2g suggested.
        didn’t try it with the sim out in 1.0.3 though.
        did try skipping settings after restore and also waiting 30 seconds before unlocking as suggested but with no luck :/

      • Ron Ocho

        Even though I’m (hard-headed) like most of us and want to try it again lol… I did forget to wait the 30 seconds etc before unlocking so ty for reminding me of that and letting me no you had no luck with it…Ok Ill just wait and keep watching these boards and again I highly appreciate your responses Good Luck to you maybe we’ll find and answer here over the next day or so it can’t be just the 2 of ours . Take Care

      • Mi ke

        got just a step further
        1- restore in itunes
        2- must chose to restore with a backup
        3- after jailbreak says done! in final step unplug right as ipad is rebooting…

        cydia installs finally.
        BUT then we get stuck at the “failed to fetch” error in cydia
        and as of right now im unable to install tweaks

        but,…baby steps lol

      • Mi ke

        hopefully this develops more.
        really frustrating after waiting this long for an ipad model specific fix

      • Pukka12

        I managed to jb my ipad mini retina on the older evasion update. After the jailbreak says finished on the computer it got stuck in a boot loop for about 2 minutes, I just left it plugged in and it finally booted up after about 2-3 minutes looping.

        EDIT: BTW I have the LTE model.

      • Ron Ocho

        Mike did you here the news!!? They updated it AGAIN today to evasi0n 1.0.4 to solve our problem I’m gonna give it a chance now let me know how you did …good luck I think this will get us there !

      • Mi ke

        tried the new update
        jail broke finally
        now I’m getting a bigboss error in cydia and am unable to use it! :/
        any luck??

      • Ron Ocho

        I downloaded it with Chrome and Firefox and both times I tried I plugged in the mini it regofnized the device i hit the Jailbreak button and it says ERROR: cannot retrieve information from the internet then says Exit ?

      • Ron Ocho

        Rebooted my windows PC now it’s working halfway through fingers crossed I believe they are updating cydia and everything today maybe that’s why your getting your things….congrats at least of getting there I’m sure they’ll get it straightened away

      • Ron Ocho

        Mike all is working FINE, try again! maybe they were addressing your problem and that’s why I couldn’t get connected there for awhile once I got through and it worked everything is working normal I am having no problems (fingers crossed) Good Luck again and ty for everything!

    • mahe

      Same here, stuck in reboot loop.
      tried 3 times :(

  • Emanuel

    Failed to Fetch”Cydia BigBoss repo error after using 1.0.3 on iPad mini Retina

    • Inquisiedor

      Same problem with iPhone 5s, i restored and Jailbreak again, and the same problem, restore and jailbrek with 1.0.2 and work perfect

      • Emanuel

        Nice to know! You are using the modified 1.0.2 tool of evasion?

      • Inquisiedor

        no just the official one

  • Guest

    I don’t know if this is the right place to post but I have a problem with my iPhone 5. It’s jailbroken on iOS 7.0.4 and I can’t turn off the cellular data. Every time I try and turn it off it turns itself back on. Does anyone know how to fix this?

  • Joseph A. Ahmad

    You cannot run iOS 7.1 beta 3 WITHOUT a registered UDID folks. Whether you press shift/option + restore or shift/option + update, you will still be met with an activation error. It’s beta software so you should only be running it at your own risk, and if you’re a developer. Other wise I’d stay away from it. But there are UDID activation sites if you desperately need 7.1 beta 3.

    • Palani

      i guess its like other times, u can run beta without UDID activationen…. ( Youtube )

      • Joseph A. Ahmad

        You can NOT run it without activating your UDID. I repeat, you can NOT, whether you choose restore or update, you still can’t. If you’re updating OTA from iOS 7.1 beta 2, it will still give you an error message.

  • @dongiuj

    Does it fix the “configuring system 2/2″ thing too?

  • Ralph

    When on Evasi0n 7 1.0.2 I was experiencing a issue where all my push notifications would reset to “OFF” on a reboot, as well as notification center losing weather info. It got annoying so I restored and hadn’t rejailbroke. Has anyone encountered this issue?if so, is there a fix? Has anybody that just jailbroke using 1.0.3 encounter the push notification issue the previous version was giving me with push notifications?

    • Jonathan

      Easy. IFile
      var/mobile/library/bulletinboard.
      Delete sectionsinfo file. Should fix everything. Worked for me. :)

      • Ralph

        Does that also fix the push notifications resetting in reboot or only weather info disappearing from notification Center?

      • Jonathan

        I never had that problem, but push notifications are tied to Notification Center, so it’s worth a try. :)

  • InfinitePlusOne

    Tempting…

  • a.no

    I hope this fixes the stuck on apple boot logo issue for iPhone 5s. At least for me.

  • Robert C. Muzik

    Will the new package be available as an update for those that have jail broken with the previous evasi0n?

  • Eikast

    I actually have a dev account but I’ll wait until Apple releases a beta build that fixes the exploits that evasi0n uses. No point in keep restoring my iPhone every 2-3 weeks (waste of time). I hope that Apple doesn’t fix any of the exploits. If they do, I hope that it’s the GM version and not beta 4.

  • ɑղժɾҽա

    My Evasi0n7 1.0.3 keeps crashing when its “modifying roofs” and I’m stuck with the Evasi0n7 app icon on my springboard. Someone please help. I’m going to try and do a full restore.

    • Gary

      Experiencing the same issue here still with Evasi0n7 1.0.4

    • meandyuhmudda

      I was experiencing the same problem however i stumbled on an evasion app on pirate bay that worked like a charm :), see the image below….

  • Zod

    is there a fix for the weather text in notification center? the text disappeared and I can’t get it to come back

    • Lance Baker

      It’s not just the weather app. Several stock app have that problem. DownloadStatus BarFix2 from Cydia.

      • Keir Dicus

        I searched for that in cydia and couldn’t find it

      • Zod

        this doesn’t fix the weather in notification text :/

  • Brandon Miranda

    Please. I do not know why this bothers me so much but can you at least give the evasi0n 7 website as well. I understand you need downloads but they work hard yo know! And I feel its only right to at least put their site here to!

  • Ryan James Christensen

    So what if we used the unofficial version to get a beta 3 jailbreak? Should I restore and use this version?

  • on3simpleclick

    Can anyone tell me if it’s worth trying to update my iPhone 4S to iOS7?
    I tried the beta a while back, but it was very sluggish, so downgraded to iOS6 while I had the chance & now I just want to know if it has been improved at all.

    • Mhmd Bassam Nasyr

      7.0.4 is better than the old beta , though 7.1 beta’s are hats off awesome ;)

  • Kilroy672

    I’m still stuck at the Configuring system 2/2. I’m about to give up and not even bother with trying to JB this phone. I have tried to restore with 7.01, 7.02 and even restored with 7.04 and no avail. While many of you have succeeded I have to JB and done less to try than I have, its really frustraiting to see that I can’t. Everyday I look on here and hope there is a fix to this being stuck at the 2/2 but no luck. I am at the end of my ropes of trying. Until there is a fix to get past the 2/2 I’m done trying.

    • mwpitt52

      Did you see Jeff’s post on stuck on 2/2. It may be your computer does not have enough processing power.

    • @dongiuj

      I still have this problem too. Jeff said it is most probably something to do with the problem of insufficient power of our computers but that has turned out not to be the case with me because mine is running lots more than required.
      Doing…my…head…in!

  • JS3

    It’s a shame they won’t fix the most basic core functions like the stock apps status bar problems and completely resetting your notification center stuff Until stuff like that is fixed I will hold off. If I can’t have my entire os work properly by just installing cydia and nothing else then I’m good on this jailbreak. Wait it out I guess.

    • Rak S

      What device are you running?
      I’m holding off jailbreaking my iPhone 5, until i get confirmation that the JB is stable, and there won’t be any problems. If you could elaborate on the problems, that would be great.
      Thanks :)

  • Filip Zíka

    Is 7.1 beta 3 running smoother than 7.0.4 on 4s?

  • Rak S

    So are there any other bugs/problems when jailbreaking a regular iPhone 5? I just want to make sure everything is nice and stable before jailbreaking.
    If someone can confirm that everything is still stable, that would be great!
    Thanks :)

  • David Hvilivitzki

    I got all excited and tried to JB my iPad mini retina 32 Cellular and guess what, The boot loop problem is still there, I tried all of the so called solutions which seemed to work for other people and no luck :-(

  • Alessandro Micieli

    I have to jailbreak 1.0.2 with the tool. To get the new Cydia? Should I reinstall the new tool? Thanks!

  • a.no

    Evasi0n 1.0.3 can’t fix ipad mini retina boot loop problems,, I try it again and again, that make me none sense. Please give me advise that how can I do!!!

  • Cruzito

  • a.no

    • gitanojr

      Have you found the solution, it also happens on version 1.0.4
