Once the above process is completed, evasi0n will ask you to unlock your device. Slide to unlock your device and locate a new icon called “jailbreak” on your iPod Touch’s home screen.
Tap this Jailbreak app icon (just once), it will open up and close instantly.
Evasi0n will again process and show more message like injecting jb data messages, and Root Filesystem successfully remounted.
Once the iPod Touch jailbreaking process is completed, a “Done!” message will appear on the evasi0n tool. 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 iPod Touch’s screen. Once the process is completed, your iPod Touch 5G/4G will boot to lock screen. Unlock your device and find the sweet Cydia icon on your springboard.
