  • How to Jailbreak your iOS 7.x iDevice with evasi0n 7


    {last updated March 1st, 2014}

    This Windows and OS X guide will teach you how to jailbreak various devices using evasi0n 7. The current version of evasi0n 7 is 1.0.7. Note this is an UNTETHERED JAILBREAK, meaning you can reboot your phone just like you normally would.

    NOTE: The evasi0n 7 jailbreak and Mobile Substrate (necessary for many tweaks, including WinterBoard) are not fully compatible yet. A version of evasi0n 7 which fixes this will be out soon (possible a few days).

    This guide should be used with the following device/firmware combinations (if you're not sure, here's how to find your iOS firmware version and how to find your iOS device type):
    • iPhone 4 | 7.0 through 7.0.6
    • iPhone 4S | 7.0 through 7.0.6
    • iPhone 5 | 7.0 through 7.0.6
    • iPhone 5S | 7.0 through 7.0.6
    • iPhone 5C | 7.0 through 7.0.6
    • iPod touch 5G | 7.0 through 7.0.6
    • iPad 2 | 7.0 through 7.0.6
    • The New iPad (third generation) | 7.0 through 7.0.6
    • iPad With Retina Display (fourth generation) | 7.0 through 7.0.6
    • iPad Mini | 7.0 through 7.0.6
    • iPad Mini with Retina Display | 7.0 through 7.0.6
    • iPad Air | 7.0 through 7.0.6

    NOTE: The team that put together this jailbreak (@pimskeks, @planetbeing, and @pod2g IS accepting donations - please feel free to donate via PayPal if you're able! All proceeds from your contributions will go to Public Knowledge, Electronic Frontier Foundation and Foundation for a Free Information Infrastructure to help protect jailbreaking as your legal right. You can also donate on the evasi0n website (same PayPal); scroll down and click the green Contribute button.

    NOTE: Before running the evasi0n 7 jailbreak, you should fully back up your data via iTunes and restore to 7.0.6.

    If you are on a lower firmware version than iOS 7.0.6 (again, here's how to check), it is highly recommended you update your phone to iOS 7.0.4 BEFORE jailbreaking. If you haven't yet, you should do this through iTunes, NOT over the air (it's ok if you already have).


    Alright, let's assume you're now on iOS 7.0.6 (this guide will also work on firmware versions 7.0 through 7.0.5, but it is best to update to 7.0.6) and backed up.

    Let's get started. First thing you'll need to do is download the version of evasi0n 7 for your operating system. You can do so on evasi0n.com or from these mirrors:

    OS X evasi0n 7 1.0.7 at mod.my/evasi0n7mac107.
    Windows evasi0n 7 1.0.7 at mod.my/evasi0n7win107.

    Double-click the zip file to unzip it if your browser didn't automatically unzip the file.



    Making sure your device is connected, and only one device, right-click the evasi0n icon and choose open from the menu to launch it. You may be prompted to allow an application for a new developer - click Open.





    You will see the evasi0n home screen, and evasi0n should tell you your device (and firmware version) is detected. Click the Jailbreak button to begin.



    evasi0n will then go through many status messages while it jailbreaks your device. This process also can take a few minutes. Do not touch or unplug the device during this process.



    At the end of this process, evasi0n will let you know there is now a new evasi0n 7 icon on your iDevice, and to unlock your device and tap the icon. ONLY TAP THE ICON ONCE, LEAVING YOUR DEVICE CONNECTED. It will restart.





    After restarting, evasi0n 7 will run through more status messages as it continues to jailbreak your iDevice. Don't touch anything.





    When it is ready, evasi0n 7 will ask you to unlock your device to continue. Do so, and the device will reboot once again.



    More status messages, and then a message saying Done!



    Cydia is now on your iDevice! You can press Exit in evasi0n 7 now - your jailbreak is complete.



    That's it! You're now holding a jailbroken device. Not too bad, eh?

      Because 7.1 isn't released to the majority of the public and could very well contain a patch for the jailbreak now that the exploits are exploited

      Now they are crying because we don't have some necessary apps in Cydia, hello... Saurik wasn't expecting the release, give him some break usually he update it quick. Can't wait to see now the people crying, when Saurik finally fix Cydia and nobody can't access because they are overloading the server. Get ready for this.

      China wants to destroy the U.S. And other country's and they make a deal with the devil. Screw evad0rs and their jailbreak. China hacks or try to hack every company and country as it is and evaders make a deal like this. How stupid can they be ?????? Bunch of anti Americans except for the traitor musclenerd.

      Obviously evad3rs and all software developers need compensation for their work. Is there not enough money in free will donations, that they felt forced to go in with a dodgy Chinese pirate site? Genuinely curious.

      I read it, but it was a little evasive (no pun intended) on that point. basically, if it's doing that, some security professional will figure that out. doesn't really inspire confidence.

      No. Use of extremist rhetoric only makes you look, uh, like an extremist, seeing the world in binary.

      Nope never said it didn't work on 7.1. I seen very quickly that there was a workaround via the SystemVersion.plist & deleting the "Release Type" field.

      But at the end of the day who would want to be stuck on a Beta2 build of 7.1?

      Lets hope that there are still some vulns/exploits left for 7.1 as this is a very rushed & premature JB that seems to be wreaking havoc on plenty of devices.

      But you agree that the exploits will be closed prior to 7.1GM.. Right? So for evad3rs to claim JB for 7.1 isn't really telling the whole story.. Right?

      We should donate to Saurik too... He's the man, and he's got his work cut out for him in the coming months...

      Seems logical. Couldn't see Apple not patching it over the next 3? beta builds? I think the intention was the same as the 6X JB (6.0-6.1.2) & with it working on iOS7.1 beta 1&2 it was heading in that direction of supporting 7.0 to 7.1 once 7.1 went GM. So yes as it stands it does support 7.1 beta builds but will it support the 7.1GM? Most likely not at a guess.
      So technically it does but then it's not a final version of 7.1. Evaders can do what they like at the end of the day & they clearly have with this & caused a lot of headaches within the scene today with this premature release.

      On another note--- do we have a list of compatible jailbreak apps for iOS7?
