How to Jailbreak iOS 7 using Evasi0n 7 Tutorial

How to Jailbreak iOS 7 using Evasi0n 7 Tutorial, Evad3rs just released Evasi0n 7 the tool that can jailbreak iOS 7 to the latest iOS 7.0.4, it is also said to be supporting the upcoming iOS 7.1 which is now in beta 2 stage and is available for developers only. Another good news about evasi0n 7 is that this new tool supports all the available iOS devices, yes it is not like A4, A5 processor based system with which we are familiar with. Evasion 7 supports all the iPhones, iPads and iPods that supports iOS 7 along the devices it supports iOS 7 versions like iOS 7.0.1, iOS 7.0.2, iOS 7.0.3 and iOS 7.0.4 as well as iOS 7.1 Beta.


Just like its previous versions, Evasi0n 7 is fairly easy to use. Just connect your device, hit the jailbreak button and follow the on-screen instructions. But for those who face problems here is a step by step tutorial on how to jailbreak it. Windows and Mac jailbreak tutorials are identical just for the windows users you need to run evasion 7 as an administrator.

How to Jailbreak iOS 7 using Evasi0n 7 – Tutorial for Mac and Windows

  • First of all backup your device with iTunes, this is for security. In case anything goes wrong you can get your data back.
  • Remove or disable any passcode you have set on your device. You can reset it after the jailbreak process is done.
  • Download Evasi0n for iOS 7 from our Evasi0n 7 download page.
  • Extract the Zip file to a folder.
  • If on windows, run Evasi0n 7 exe file as an administrator and for Mac run evasi0n 7 app by double clicking it.
  • Plug in your ios device to the computer using the lightning cable or the 30 pin connector which ever your device supports.
  • Wait for evasion 7 to detect your device, the Jailbreak button will turn active once it gets detected.
  • Now, Click on the jailbreak button and grab a coffee. Let Evasi0n 7 do the jailbreak magic.
  • After a while you will be asked to unlock your device and tap on the jailbreak button on your home screen. Do it and the process will continue.

Now this process with take a while and your device will reboot few time, this is normal and no need to panic. If some how the device stop responding for a long time you can easily force reboot the device and restart the jailbreak process. You can force restart the device by holding down power and home button.

We have to mention that Cydia is not yet fully compatible with iOS 7 so after the jailbreak is done. You may face some issues with Cydia or the Cydia tweaks when you install them. But Saurik has assured us that all issued with cydia and cydia tweaks will be solved as soon as possible. Happy jailbreaking and don’t forget to share this post on facebook and twitter.

  1. goooooooooooooooooooooooood!
    what about 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak?

  2. my iphone gets stuck at th apple start logo what do i need to do i jailbreak it with ur tool

    • Coming from a guy named rich, install ios 7 through itunes. Something about ota is causing an issue. Otherwise wait a bit and it will be fixed

    • this is what I found on another page:
      1. Don’t do it. You will get stuck at apple log. It is reported that there are major issues with this jailbreak. I had to put my phone in DFU mode and restore via ICloud backup. Don’t do it.

      2. If its not working for you, just wait for a while a update is coming to Evasion 7. BTW have your upgraded your iOS 7 OTA last time. If yes the jailbreak may fail, re-install iOS 7 using iTunes and perform the jailbreak. Using the tutorial we posted. Hope that Helps.

      Personally I got the same issue, so right now I have it in DFU and waiting for restore process to complete:/

  3. jayestofkays says:

    I have OSX 10.6.8 running on my macmini and the evasion tool won’t open after I’ve downloaded it, no matter which way I try. Any ideas?

  4. Mine also. Any idea how to solve? iPad2. Jailbreak was fully done. At final reboot the device comes not up and is just rebooting all over again. Volume Up or DFU don’t work.

  5. Hello it’s shocking to the community that it finally has been released and that it amazing but there are IPhone 4S users in ios 7.0.1 that are struggling through the jailbreak process , you see when the iPhone goes on the reboot stage it freezes and doesn’t jailbreak the device and then it doesn’t become recognized by iTunes at all , can you please fix this problem thank you :)

  6. What is with ATV 2 ????

  7. Great Christmas! Thanks

  8. I ve been using Mavericks which is 10.9 version. The latest tool for jailbreaking is not compatible with this version of OSX? I can not open the dmg file on my mac.

    • we will post an article on fixing this problem of non compatibility with Mac OS but for the time being, download the DMG file on a Windows machine and copy it to your mac machine it will work. Else use Google Chrome or firefox to download it on your mac system. As far now we have noticed that DMG files downloaded through Safari are throwing this error. Mega(dot)co(dot)nz seems to have issues with safari.

      • Travis Swartfiguer says:

        This worked for me. The first time I downloaded it I used safari and the DMG would open but when I tried to open the evasion 7 app nothing would happen not even a reference to it in activity monitor at all. I read the post above and installed google chrome and re-downloaded it from the same place and evasion opened right up.

        Thanks A Lot for your help Rich

  11. Ben Bockelman says:

    Can’t seem to get the Evasion app to launch on OS X. And on another computer running Windows XP, Evasion launches, but has trouble connecting to the device. iTunes connects just fine. :(

    • Download the DMG file for Mac on a windows machine and move it to your Mac system, it should work now. We saw some issues with Safari and Mega download site.

  12. I can’t run Evasion app with error ““evasi0n 7” can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.” I use mac os x 10.9.1. Help me please

    • Go to System Preferences – Click on Security & Privacy – Click on the lock icon (if it is in locked state) and enter your admin password. Now Selected “Anywhere” for Allow apps downloaded from list. Re-lock the lock icon and close it. Now run Evasi0n 7, it should work fine know.

    • This problem occurs most of the time when Safari is used to download the DMG file from maga co nz site, try downloading it using Chrome. If still not working, download the DMG file on a windows machine and copy it to your system.

  18. The “evasi0n 7″ icon does not appear on my iPhone 4 homescreen

    • Jason iP5 64GB iOS 6.1.2 + iOS 7.0.4 4S says:

      Genna I doubt you’re going to be able to jailbreak your 5S I’m stuck in the same boat on my 4S on 7.0.4 does exactly the same on version 1.0.0 and 1.0.1 and just freezes up my laptop at configuring 2/2 , it’s not going to work until they have a stable version but nice to know a working version will be imminent!

    • Hi Genna, have you managed to get yours working yet? I Managed to do it on my 4S 7.0.4 :) I reset all settings on my iphone used a new USB lead, downloaded evasi0n 7 again , waited a bit longer on configuring 2/2 and browsed some apps thinking it was hanging then suddenly it started rebooting!! I looked up and it said rebooting and then the process went through lovely no problems! You just have to be a bit more patient! ;) xxx

  51. Altair_Horace says:

    some says i hv to update to ios7.04 to jailbreak? is it true? im using ios5 (9B206) of ipad 2 and the tool said “the version of ios (9B206) of the attached device is not supported”.

    • That’s correct or you can jailbreak using absinthe I recommend you update and get the newest jailbreak iOS 5 is ancient and useless ;)

  52. I had the same problem with the stuck logo, after i reinstall ipsw 7.0.4 it works. Jaibroken, but i cant acces cydia, everytime i click on it it will goes back to the homescreen. Help

  53. The tweaks which are said to be suppoted in iOS 7 could not be found in the “Settings”!
    Is this only the problem of the devices with A7 chips? Or it is the case for all devices from the pan-chinese area? (PS. I am from Hong Kong, not China)
    Is it caused by the unupdated mobile substrate? Or other reasons?

    • Jason iP5 64GB iOS 6.1.2 + iOS 7.0.4 4S says:

      Yes your A7 chip is a known problem on the jail break hopefully it’ll be fixed eventually

  54. i pad 2 wifi only model after jailbreak i get screan of envasion rearing kernal after 30 second it flashes and i get stuck in the apple logo i try to restore with a new ipsw rejailbrak same thing anybody with same issue

  57. My iPhone 5S Is Stuck At The Apple Logo After I Jailbreak Now What Do I Do Please Help Me Now!!!!!!

  58. I got stuck at apple logo. I restored the 7.0.4 ipsw and now stuck at activate screen. How to proceed without SIM

  59. Is there any good and free solution for removing the carrier lock apart from SAM binger’s app. U can recommend something paid if nothing comes free.:-)

    • Jason iP5 64GB iOS 6.1.2 + iOS 7.0.4 4S says:

      It won’t come free Harry! I tried SAM it’s a pile of crap! The only way to unlock it is to factory unlock it by the network , you can do it by getting a pay as you go sim for the desired network and topping up £25 or £30 to be on the safe side and put in an unlock request form or phoning up and requesting one, trust me that’s the ONLY way! But at least you’ll never have problems with activation like you would with these 3rd party dodgy unsafe unlocks.

  67. Marco Azevedo says:

    I tried to jailbreak my iPad 2 Wifi using Windows 8.1 and the process went ok until step “Now, Click on the jailbreak button and grab a coffee. Let Evasi0n 7 do the jailbreak magic.” When i click on the Evasion icon in my iPad, the program opens and closes quickly and the progress bar in the Evasion Jaibreak software get stuck in the “To continue, please unlock your device and tap the new evasion 7 icon”. P.S: I already tried the hard reset, tried again and the DFU mode also didn´t worked. The Cydia icon appears in the program list in my iPad. When i try to jaibreak again, software says iPad is already jaibroken, but the iFun says is jailed.

    Any solution?
