evasi0n7 1.0.4 brings security update and fix for Retina iPad mini

By , Jan 12, 2014

evasi0n7 1.0.4 jailbreak

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s release of evasi0n7 1.0.3, evad3rs today pushed another update to the iOS 7 jailbreak tool. evasi0n7 1.0.4 provides important untether security updates as well as a fix for the iPad mini with Retina display issues.

This is the second evasi0n7 update in two days. Yesterday’s release was also supposed to provide a fix for the boot loop issue that some Retina iPad mini users were affected by, yet many still encountered the problem. As the evad3rs note, evasi0n7 1.0.4 will hopefully fix this problem once and for all…

Current users already using a jailbroken device will receive this important security update via Cydia. The update is currently available and should show up under “evasi0n7 7.x Untether” when you refresh Cydia.

As always, you can download evasi0n7 1.0.4 from our Downloads page. Newcomers to the jailbreak scene may also want to refer to our evasi0n7 tutorial for Mac and its Windows version.

If you were having the reboot issue on your iPad mini, please make sure to let us know if this update finally fixed the problem for you.

    ALL I CAN SAY IS THANK YOU EVAD3RS FOR YOUR DEDICATED WORK ON THIS :)

    • Kenrick Fernandes

      i often am amazed on how simple the jailbreak process is. But one can only imagine the amount of hard work and dedication that these people have put into jailbreaking. Kudos. I wish i can be like the evad3rs some day :)

      • marcus1324

        I actually dream of being the Evad3rs because if I were them I would just feel so awesome and proud :D

    Jailbroke my iPad mini w/ Retina wifi yesterday evening. I had no idea about the bugs, never experienced any problems. Did it with v 1.0.0 Guess I’m lucky :)

    • Coleman Lee

      The boot loop issue is on the Mini Retina Cellular models.

      • illK†Δ

        Oh missed that part…

    • Vighnesh Manick

      I jailbroke my Retina Mini WIFI right when evasi0n came out and I havent had a single problem. Luck is in our hands.

    • Chun-Li aka ThunderThighs

      Read closely

  • Mikeylud

    Was this the Cydia subsrtrate update this morn? Or should we be expecting another?

    • Andy

      It’s a separate update for evasi0n7 package, it’s up on Cydia now so you should update.

    • Scott

      It’s on cydia now.

  • MrVids132

    I dont know if this is only me but since i updated it my iphone 5s keeps rebooting

    • Robert Rastelli

      I’ve had mine reboot twice since this update. Didn’t have any before

  • 123bob

    This is SWAG-TASTIC!

  • Steve

    I go to jailbreak my iPhone 5 (7.0.4) using evasion 1.0.4 on windows and I get all the way to the “Modifying rootfs” screen then the jailbreak just goes away on my computer?? I never get to the “done” screen… I’ve tried it 3 times now, any ideas?

    • kilowiko

      Yea, restore fresh and rejailbreak.

      • Martynet

        restore fresh? And what about all the settings, folders, apps settings and game progress… ??

      • Aerobahn

        That you sync in after the phone is jailbroken. You always jailbreak the phone when it’s freshly restored.

      • marcus1324

        That’s why you back everything up, and you should always be doing a fresh restore before you jailbreak.

      • kilowiko

        Back them up on your PC with iTunes or simply turn on icloud and its done for you.

    • Rayan Saeed

      Same problem here, but with an iPad 2. Did you find any fix?

  • JS3

    I just really hope/wish they get the status bar problems and notification settings bugs worked out. That’s what’s keeping me stock at the moment. Good work tho guys

    • sambuzzlight

      its pretty annoying but it didn’t keep me from jailbreaking.

    • Manujito

      There are already tweaks/fix for those bugs. Nothing too bad to keep you from jailbreaking. :)

      • Abdl

        Actually there is…not sure but i think jailbreak lead to the ‘death’ of my ipad2,its totally inoperable now,iv restored multiple times

      • marcus1324

        What is the status bar fix?

        EDIT: Never mind….

    • Kenrick Fernandes

      i was irritated at first. but then when you install statusbarfix2 it just works :D

    • JS3

      no i understand you can install a repo and add in a fix but its more of the notifications getting borked is what im not liking. i have a ton of apps and what not and dont really like it resetting everything. if i had another phone for like a daily driver and then used my ip5 for jailbreaking then i wouldn’t care…

  • Chris Gilmore

    Hmm. I haven’t gotten an update yet.

    • Palani

      Same here, server slow right.

      • Chris

        Even after refreshing manually? I had the update appear on my 5S over 12-13 hours ago

      • Palani

        Yea stil. Im in Danmark Maybe im gonna wait a While, normally i Got it very fast:)

      • Chris

        Try checking the version by going to “Manage > Installed” and selecting “evasi0n 7.x Untether”.

        If it says 0.3 you’re on the latest version, I believe they forgot to update the version number when they released the update.

      • Palani

        I know.. :) they forgot

  • had3z

    Just updated (iPhone5S 7.0.4) after reboot my phone hangs for at least 5mins on boot up screen. Then turns blue, crashes and restarts that process over. When I went to Cydia my updates were the evasion update, substrate, custom lockscreen & the poweroff (sorry not sure about that name but it gives you the option to respring, reboot or poweroff your device). I don’t know if those others may have messed up the installation or something, just giving the details. I’ve tried reinstalling the evasion update through Cydia and no dice (rebooted by holding volume button). Thanks in advance.

    • moe1903

      Delete RePower and then reinstall the evasion package and it should work

      • had3z

        Thanks moe that seemed to have done the trick, but then again I deleted 50% of my tweaks and reinstalled evasion update (took a screen shot first to put everything back).

  • Palani

    Ive closed cydia. Rebooted, Got no Update, yes 1 but Its 1.0.3.
    But i have/had no problems, all Works. Maybe some ppl Got to much shit on there phone ;)

  • Paul Lopez

  • mahe

    Finally I was able to jailbreak my iPad mini retina cellular :)

  • Arsanny Lintang

    Why can’t I update my cydia? It just happened to me and I don’t know what to do.. Plis help?!?? :O

    • Chris

      Simply try resetting your network settings which you can do by going into “Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings”

  • Dodgy Debjit

    This one worked for me – 1.0.3 still caused a boot loop on my retina mini but all good now.

  • אביאור רוקח

    I can rejailbreak if my device jailbreaked with evasi0n 1.0.2?

    • Chris

      The update is released in the Cydia store, it will appear as an update in the “Changes” view

  • Jacques Hragar

    Is redsnow updated yet?

    • Chris

      No, evasi0n7 is the only public jailbreak at this point in time

  • Palani

    My bigboss repo doest not work with the new 1.0.4, cant get Prefrenceloader og libhide. and more.
    I did a full restore on iphone, and still i get 1.0.3 evasion in Cydia. WTF.

    • marcus1324

      BigBoss wasn’t working well for be yesterday either. I think there were just too many people on the repo. I would try again later.

  • mwpitt52

    I bought a refurbished Mac Mini ($509.00) just to jailbreak iPhone. Jailbreak went thru with no problem. Hooked the Mac mini up to the 42″ HDTV. Dang this is awesome!

  • dodo

    please help me my ipad mini retina display when i JB it success but when i connect it with my PC the itools show my ipad no JB what happen with it?

  • Gary

    Tried Evasi0n7 1.0.4 for both ipad mini and iphone 5. I followed all the steps and rules but Evasi0n7 program in my computer crashed during the last step of jailbreaking : “modifying roofs” ( when the device is rebooted the 2nd time after unlocking the screen) Now there is only the Evasi0n7 app icon on my springboard… Is there something i’ve missed or misunderstood?

  • Daniel Iturbe

    When the jailbreak load is finishes it closes and my iPod dosent reeboot! ;(I’m running 1.0.4 evasion 7 for iPod 5
