iOS 7 Jailbreak has finally arrived. This is a welcome news for many users. The “evasi0n7” tool has been launched by the evad3rs, a team that’s been responsible for previous jailbreak hacks as well. This new one is compatible with all models of the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini that are running iOS 7.0 to 7.0.4, and there are downloads available for both Mac OS X and Windows, meaning that everyone can get in on the device-freeing fun. Following is how you can get started.
1. Backup your iOS device.
2. Disable lock passcode on your device.
3. Download the software to your Mac or Windows computer.
4. Install the software to your mac or pc.
5. Start evasi0n on your computer and click on the “Jailbreak” option. Do not touch anything while your device is being jailbroken.
6. Once done, your device should boot straight back. You will see a new Jailbreak icon on your home screen. Tap on it in order to finish the process.
7. Your device will reboot quite a few times for a short while, before it boots into the jailbroken state.
If everything has gone as expected, evasi0n should indicate that the jailbreak is complete. Cydia should now also be on your home screen.
– Avoid all iOS and iTunes related tasks until evasi0n is complete. Why not just enjoy a brief break from the computer to stretch your legs?
– If the process gets stuck somewhere, it’s safe to restart the program, reboot the device (if necessary by holding down Power and Home until it shuts down), and rerun the process.
– If you get an error on OS X 10.8 saying that evasi0n can’t be opened, control-click (or right-click) the app and on the revealed context menu, choose ‘Open.’ On the ensuing dialogue box, choose ‘Open’ as well.
– Warning! Over The Air updates of iOS 7 are known to create an issue and make the jailbreak fail. Some devices are then stuck on the Apple Boot Logo. Until we fix that, please restore your device to 7.0.4. with iTunes first.
– Warning! Many Cydia tweaks are not yet compatible with iOS 7. Please always backup your phone before installing new tweaks from Cydia as your iPhone could be stuck in the boot process. The situation will improve as developers will update their software.
