  • 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?

      I think it might have something to do with the OTA update

      my ipad that worked perfectly was restored in iTunes prior.

      my 2 phones (5S and 5) were updated using the OTA feature a couple weeks ago

      Just updated my iPhone 4 to 7.0.4 via OTA and ran the jailbreak which took 15 minutes. Really smooth! I don't even use my iPhone as a primary phone anymore (got a Note 3), but I shall donate!

      Same here. Perhaps I will have more success with 7.0.4 than I did with 7.0

      Not many. No WinterBoard. No MobileSubstrate for A7 devices - which then kills a bunch of tweaks. Won't have any real cool theming stuff for quite a while likely..
