Tap this Jailbreak app icon (just once), it will open up and close instatntly.
Evasi0n will again process and show more message like injecting jb data messages, and Root Filesystem successfully remounted.
Once the jailbreaking process is completed, a completion message will appear on evasi0n tool then you can exit the evasi0n tool. Your device will now reboot. First time boot after jailbreak will take some time, so be patient.
An evasi0n logo will appear on your screen and several messages will appear on your iPad’s screen. Once the process is completed, your iPad 2/3/4 will boot to lock screen. Unlock your device and find the sweet Cydia icon on your springboard.
