evasi0n7 1-0-7

The evad3rs have released an update to their evasi0n7 jailbreak tool this afternoon. The update, which brings the tool to version 1.0.7, includes a fix for a known issue where the bundled package lists could not be updated by Cydia.

This is more of a maintenance update, as it doesn’t really add new features or benefits for people who aren’t experiencing the above problem. So unless you are seeing the issue, there’s no reason for you to restore and re-jailbreak…

As always, this version of evasi0n7 is compatible with any device running iOS 7. You can download evasi0n7 1.0.7 from our Downloads page we have a Mac tutorial and Windows guide available for those that need helping with the process.

Thanks Marria!

  • For those that are already jailbroken and are having the issue described, there is a fix without having to restore and re-jailbreak… Just install iCleaner, turn off all options except Cydia Sources, and tap Clean. After process is complete, respring and return to Cydia and refresh. I have confirmed this on with my 5s on 7.0.6.

      Good info. I’m glad I found the solution via Google a couple of days ago. I had just purchased PkgBackup and several tweaks wouldn’t restore because of dependencies. I thought I had wasted $10 on PkgBackup.

      • Right on… PkgBackup is well worth the $10 if you are an avid jailbreaker with numerous tweaks and preference settings, or if you utilize multiple jailbroken iDevices.

      • Kubaton

        I agree! After figuring out the issue on my 5s, I ran iCleaner before restoring using PkgBackup on my iPad and it worked like a champ.

      • Tope

        I must be the only one that thinks the backup apps are pointless. Lol. I like to clean restore without backing up cydia stuff then I redownload everything. The way I see it is if I don’t remember to redownload it then it means I didn’t need it in the first place. It’s a lot less hassle especially when switching from 1 iOS version to the next where therez often compatibility issues and depedency problems.

      • mahe

        With PkgBackup you can choose exactly what you want to restore out of the avail backup.

        You can just restore one setting-file if you like or only the data of one app or which Cydia sources or which packages or … or … or …

      • For sure… but I primarily use PkgBackup for the package preferences portion. After spending hours of curating and customizing several tweaks, the last thing you want to do is to have to start from scratch or remember all the different settings AND change them again.

      • Dan

        same here, most of the tweaks I use are paid tweaks. I just go in the purchase section of cydia and re-install what I bought.

      • Kubaton

        I understand what you mean, but after many years of jailbreaking and restoring devices as new (my iPhone and iPad, my wife’s iPhone and iPad and my daughter’s iPod Touch, as Chris pointed out it’s about the convenience of not having to manually reconfigure all of your tweaks. I held off for a long time and did everything manually but, after using PkgBackup, the time saved is worth its weight in gold.

      • Pretty interesting way to look at it. How many apps/tweaks do we have on our devices that we never use

      • Kubaton

        You’re right. I’m bad at hoarding apps on my devices. I need to weed them out occasionally.

      • aw81

        I find some of the smaller, forgettable tweaks are the most important, tweaks like webscrollian or swipeselection that I forget I have because they integrate so well, takes me a few days to realise I’m missing them if I have to restore.
        Also, openbackup is a free alternative to pkgbackup that isn’t as feature rich but worked more reliably for me.

      • Damian W

        Actually they are pretty useful when it comes to not so much restoring but keeping track of your 100 favourite tweaks and 20 different repos. I like to have a list of them that will never disappear.

    • redjazon

      Noob here, does your tip means no tweaks or apps get deleted? Tnx 😉

      • Anytime you un-jailbreak your device, you will lose your Cydia packages… Unless you utilize a package backup app like PkgBackup, mentioned above by Kubaton, then all you have to do is reinstall just the one package and then use the restore function.

    • blastingbigairs

      Agreed Chris, iCleaner is an essential for every JB’n device and should be ran weekly to keep everything clean and in order. Good lookin’ out!


      I was searching for this package issue problem yesterday after I re-jailbreaked to 7.0.6 and found that it also works without iCleaner

      So basically “package issue” or “source cache clearing” problem can just be fixed with only removing and re adding the bigboss repo source and that’s all, iCleaner is not compulsory to fix the problem

      Just an additional info to help out…

    • leart

      Why to turn off all other options, make a clean up 🙂

      • I was simply stating how to fix the problem… I didn’t want someone to use other settings and inadvertantly create a new problem or delete stuff from Messages.app or Cydia dependencies and so on.

    • The Kid ⚡

      Thank you chris Appreciate it man 🙂

  • Quang

    can I re-jailbreak without having to restore my iPhone?
    I mean can I just run evasion 1.0.7 over my currently jailbroken iPhone?

    • Faizan Ali

      No, don’t do this.

      • Antzboogie

        Why not?

      • Faizan Ali

        It’s not safe to do! Can you make room in a room???

    • Rowan09

      No it won’t work, it will say your phone is already jail broken.

      • Dan

        while it’s not recommended, it is possible (done it before)

      • Rowan09

        Oh. I’ve tried before and it wouldn’t allow me, but now I know you can.

  • ND Tou

    Why jailbreak again when u can use iclenear to clear the cydia catches

    • Jason Dieter

      So I did this, performed a respring and then refreshed cydia with no update? Did I do something wrong?

      • ND Tou

        Delete bigboss repo then after that Iclean and reinstall the repo u should b good

      • Carlos Gomes

        Yup, that’s what I did in order to get Cydia Substrate *5001 and it worked.

    • Mark@Disqus

      there are always choices. This article is just presenting the news as an option.

  • Marcus

    This is perfect! I’m restoring my phone right now because I’m updating to iOS 7.0.6 and now I can jailbreak with today’s new release of Evasi0n! How convenient 😀

    • Gucciipad

      Same here

    • Faizan Ali

      I’ve just re-jb 2 hours ago. :/

    • HamptonWalley

      you lucky, I did it yesterday unfortunately, sucks.

  • @Orlowskii

    Cydia update ?

  • Diego Milano

    I’m not sure I understand what the issue was, but I assume I’m not having it.

    • For some users, after un-jailbreaking and utilizing the OTA update method to iOS 7.0.6, upon re-jailbreaking with Evasi0n 7 v1.0.6 a lot of Cydia packages were giving an error “Cannot Locate Package Source”.

      • sorrento

        Hi Chris, I don’t have this problem but instead I have something weird happened since this morning. My whole installed packages, from the package list, don’t show their source’s name and it’s written “unknown” below the names…
        – Any idea where it might come from ?!?
        Cheers 😉

      • sorrento

        after few hours and refreshing data, it got fixed up by itself… Just a weirdo one LOL !

    • Zod

      There was most likely a problem with the install list when trying to install a cydia package

  • Hjelrup Wagner

    One important question: I am on iOS 7.0.4, jailbroken. I want to upgrade to 7.0.6, but is there any way to keep my settings, apps, cracked apps, tweaks and mods after i updated to 7.0.6 and jailbreaked it?

    I don’t wanna have to reinstall everything, if you get what i mean…. One of my friends told me to use “AptBackup” but that one only backs upp what type of packages and sources you have on Cydia, and reinstalls them afterwards.

    Any other way to do all this?

    • I use PkgBackup… It is $9.99, but well worth it if you have a lot to backup. It saves all your tweaks and settings, and even lets you export a copy of the backup file to dropbox now!

      • Hjelrup Wagner

        Thank you Chris for your reply. So PkgBackup is the only option to go with so far, as i understood of? Will it also backup all of my apps/games (from Appstore) as well as cracked apps/games?

      • Yes, you can customize what you backup via settings, and it works with first party and third party apps alike.

      • Hjelrup Wagner

        Thank You. I will try it out!

  • Y2J

    Anybody else having major i5 battery issues pre and post-JB?

  • guest222

    will this fix WinterBoard for iphone 5s because if it doesnt im taking this phone back right now

    • What is wrong with Winterboard? I am on a 5s and use it without a problem. Did you get an error loading pref bundle message in the settings pane? If so, see my comment below to resolve…

      • guest222

        It shows WInterboard 0.93911 and not the newer version 0.9.3912

      • Look at my first comment… Install iCleaner and uncheck everything except Cydia Sources and then run it. Respring, launch Cydia and refresh sources. If it doesn’t update right away, reboot your phone.

      • Macana

        hi chris
        how can i find my evasi0n version?

  • FrankensteinBlack

    Wait, is there an Intelliborn app boycott on this site? Why no news about ISX7?

    • Wood1030

      What boycott? Did you completely miss this? Intelliborn posts screenshots and video of IntelliScreenX 7

      • AndroidDogHeatandSteelersFan

        Yes, but they are so slow and they didn’t release beta last week when promised. They care all for mywi product which isn’t the best thing for jailbreak.

  • Mads Teland

    It did only happen to my iPhone 5S, not my iPad mini 2G, and just wait for next refresh. That will show all new updates that was missed and it will likely to install the updates 🙂

  • I detailed it in a comment above… Has to do with OTA updating to 7.0.6 and then re-jailbreaking.

  • Mark@Disqus

    Never had good luck with PkgBackup but having saved deb files has never let me down. 😀

  • Mukesh Singh

    How I resolve issue with jaibroken Iphone 5S IOS 7.0.6 and getting massage SAMSTATE: WAITING FOR RESPONSE…

    • svartkuken

      You have to jailbreak, not just download evasi0n7 which is the TOOL to jailbreak.

  • Mukesh Singh

    I’m having issue after updating to iOS 7.0.6 my iPhone is jail broken butt after sometime the appcake & springtomize 3 become useless it crashes to make it back to work I’ve to reinstall the Cydia substrature it’s a headache am the only on any solution or I just done a bad decision to updating to iOS 7.0.6.

  • 4p0c4lyps3

    Had this problem too. Google it. U need to go into ifile n delete everything except ‘lock’ and ‘partial’ files. I can post the exact file local, as I can’t recall it offhand. Then open cydia and all the aforementioned packages will update and become available. Will show current versions if activator, winterboard, flipswitch…

    • 4p0c4lyps3

      The easiest way is to download the iFile package (if it shows up in Cydia). It’s shareware and will let you use it for a limited time. I recommend you purchase it, because it’s a great tool to have. Navigate the filesystem to the /var -> lib -> apt -> lists directory. Use the edit button in the upper right to allow you to select the files. Remember, do NOT select lock nor partial. Once the files are selected, tap the trash can icon in tab bar. Empty the trash. Fire up Cydia and get back to work.

      • 4p0c4lyps3

        This is the only thing tht wrked for me. iCleaner didn’t work n neither did uninstalling big boss repo.

  • arron

    to bad it STILL doesn’t fix the status bar issue!!!! i just dont get how its gone this long without being fixed. i dont have a mac so i cant fix it 100% and im not going to jailbreak and have STOCK features be broken….. still waiting i guess…

  • rossmunch

    I’m sure a lot of people like using PkgBackup for restoring their Cydia sources and apps but for 10 dollars and the fact that it is only rarely used, it is not worth it for many. Download OpenBackup from Cydia. It is free and completely restores your Cydia files after jailbreak using 2 different optional methods. I have used it for the last 3 jailbreaks and it is flawless. Why pay so much money for a cydia app that is hardly ever used and is unnecessary thanks to OpenBackup.
