How to jailbreak iOS 7.0.6 with Evasi0n
Make sure that you’ve read the NOTEs posted above before proceeding.
Backup your devcie via iTunes or iCloud and disable the passcode if you have set one on your devcie (Settings > General > Passcode Lock On > Turn Passcode Off).
Update your device to the latest iOS 7.0.6 firmware. Here’s how to update to iOS 7.0.6.
Download evasi0n7 1.0.6 for Windows or mac and extract/unzip the downloaded .zip file.
Connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to your computer and run the evasi0n app. Allow access to the application if any prompt appears. Windows users must run the application as an Administrator (Right-click and select “Run as Administrator”).
When opened, evasi0n home screen should detect your device, show the iOS version it’s running and the Jailbreak button should be clickable. (if not, replug your device and make sure the passcode is disabled).
Now click the Jailbreak button to start the jailbreak process.
Evasi0n7 will then go through several jailbreaking steps including retrieving remote package, uploading jailbreak data, injecting evasi0n app, configuring system and Rebooting device.
The jailbreak process may take a few minutes, so be patient. Make sure to not run applications such as iTunes or Xcode during the jailbreak process.
Do not close the evasi0n application. After the reboot, you’ll be asked to slide unlock your device and tap on the evasi0n app icon on your device’s home screen. Tap on the app icon.
Tapping on the Evasi0n icon found on the home screen of your device will result in a white screen and your device will reboot.
Rest of the jailbreak process will take place on your device during the reboot. A large evasi0n logo will appear on the screen of your device informing you about various jailbreak processes including: Reading kernel, Calculating offsets, Setting up packages, Setting up Cydia, Continuing with boot…
Once your device is back ON, you’re done. You’ve successfully jailbroken your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 7.0.6 firmware. Now you can find the Cydia icon resting on the home screen of your device.
If you’re stuck at any point during the jailbreak process, it’s safe to restart your device (hold power + home buttons if necessary), restart evasion, and retry.
If you had installed iOS 7.0.6 via an OTA update, and are having issues with jailbreaking, try to perform a full restore of the device via iTunes and retry the jailbreak process.
