How to Jailbreak iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS Using evasi0n [iOS 6.1/6.0]

evasi0n

evad3rs Dev team has just released the eagerly awaited evasi0n 1.0 jailbreak for iOS 6.1 – iOS 6.

In this guide, we will take you through the step by step procedure to jailbreak your iPhone running iOS 6.x using evasi0n for Mac and Windows users.

Here are some important points to note before you proceed.

  • This tutorial is meant for iPhone users. iPad users can check this tutorial and iPod touch users can check this one.
  • evasion performs an untethered jailbreak
  • evasi0n supports iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS
  • Please do not forget to backup your iPhone to iCloud or iTunes before you proceed.
  • Please ensure you’ve updated iTunes to the latest version.
  • evasi0n is compatible with iOS 6.1, iOS 6.0.2, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6 (Settings -> General -> About – Version)
  • Warning: If you depend on Ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone, then do not update to iOS 6.1. You should wait for the dev teams to release Redsn0w or PwnageTool that adds support for iOS 6.x untethered jailbreak, which will allow you to create a custom iOS firmware file, which will allow you to update to iOS 6.1 while preserving the baseband
  • Please note that jailbreaking your iPhone may void your warranty and hence proceed with caution and at your own risk
  • Please do not jailbreak your iPhone to pirate apps from the App Store

Step 1: Download the latest version of evasion jailreak from this link and save it in a folder named “evasi0n” on your desktop.

Step 2: Double click the evasi0n zip file and extract the application to the evasi0n folder (Windows users). Navigate to the evasion application and launch it.

Windows users: Please launch the application as an Administrator. Right Click on the evasion exe and select the “Run as Administrator” option.

Step 3: After launching evasi0n, you will be prompted to connect your iPhone.

Step 4: Please disable the passcode as the jailbreak may fail, if the passcode is enabled (Settings -> General -> Passcode Lock On -> Turn Passcode Off).

Step 5: After the passcode is disabled, connect your iPhone to the computer. evasi0n should detect your iPhone and also mention the iOS firmware that is running on it. Click on the Jailbreak button.

evasi0n_how_to_iphone-1

After clicking on the Jailbreak button the tool will give a progress update on the various stages of the jailbreak process such as:

  • Retrieving information from the device to general jailbreak data
  • Preparing stage 1 jailbreak data
  • Injecting stage 1 jailbreak data
  • Waiting for device reboot… (do not touch your device)
  • Waiting for device to be ready… (do not touch your device)
  • Preparing stage 2 jailbreak data… (do not touch your device)
  • Injecting stage 2 jailbreak data (Step 1/3)…  (do not touch your device)
  • Injecting stage 2 jailbreak data (Step 2/3)… (do not touch your device)
  • Injecting stage 2 jailbreak data (Step 3/3)…  (do not touch your device)
  • Uploading Cydia… (do not touch your device)
  • Uploading Cydia packages list… (do not touch your device)

Please wait patiently while the jailbreaking process is running, don’t start iTunes or Xcode in the meanwhile. The process may take 5 minutes.

Step 6: Once the process is complete, you will get a message informing you to unlock your iPhone. Do not close the evasi0n application.

evasi0n_how_to_iphone-3

Step 7: Unlock your iPhone and then tap on the Jailbreak app (the one with the evasi0n icon).

evasi0n_jailbreak_iphone_5

Step 8: When you launch the evasi0n app, the screen will go black for a second and exit. Don’t worry, this will start the next stage of the jailbreak process.

Step 9: The tool will again give you progress update on the next stage of the jailbreak process  such as:

  • Alright! Remounting will start now. DO NOT tap the icon again — just wait.
  • Injecting remount payload…
  • Root filesystem successfully remounted!
  • Preparing final jailbreak data…
  • Injecting final jailbreak data…

Step 10: Once it is done, it will give a message informing you that the “Jailbreak complete! The device may restart a few times as it completes the process”.

evasi0n_how_to_iphone-2

Step 11: The rest of the jailbreak process will now take place on your iPhone. After you iPhone reboots, you will see a large evasi0n logo with messages informing you on the status of the jailbreak process such as:

  • Setting up fstab and AFC2
  • Setting up Cydia
  • Setting up Cydia packages
  • Clearing SpringBoard Cache
  • Rebooting

Note: These messages will flash on the screen so quickly that you may not see them.

Your iPhone will reboot and you will again see the large evasion logo on your iPhone with messages informing you on the status of the jailbreak process such as:

  • Initializing offsets…
  • Finding offsets…
  • Patching kernel…
  • Cleaning up!
  • Done! Continuing boot

Note: The Patching kernel and Initializing offsets steps can take a long time. Some readers have reported it taking as much as 18 minutes, so please be patient.

Step 12: Your iPhone will reboot for the final time. After it has rebooted, you’re done. It has been successfully jailbroken and you should be able to find the Cydia icon on your iPhone’s home screen  (it may not be on the first page so search for it to locate it).

Please note if the process gets stuck in the middle, it’s safe to restart the process, hardware reset your iOS device (if necessary by holding down Hold and Home until it shuts down), and rerun the process.

Note: evad3rs dev team had strongly recommended upgrading to iOS 6.1 doing a full restore using iTunes. So if you had upgraded to iOS 6.1 using the OTA option or using iTunes and are having problems jailbreaking your iOS device with evasi0n, then try doing a full restore using iTunes and then try jailbreaking again to see if it works.

After the jailbreaking process is complete, do not forget to checkout our article on tips to keep your iPhone secure.

If you’re new to the jailbreaking world and wondering what to do after jailbreaking your iPhone, checkout our jailbreak apps category page to find out the apps you can install on your iPhone using the Cydia app.

Hope this helped. Please don’t forget to let us know how it goes in the comments and drop us a line if you hit any issues.

  • CornishRob

    I’ve been Jailbreaking using a multitude of methods since receiving my shiny new 3GS a few years back, my latest ‘insurance replacement’ 3GS on iOS 6.01 just Jailbroke within 10 mins, smooth as silk, thanks to the fellas at Evad3rs for what I’m sure has been an arduous programming task since iOS 6.0 now I can ‘Shrink’ my icons, put ‘5 Icons on my Dock’ and run ‘BiteSMS’ again :-) I’m all smiles…

    • CornishRob

      By the way I did this while Handbrake was ripping a BluRay Boss episode, Submerge was adding lovely large subtitles to Inspector Montalbano and Intego BMP was backing up 2TB of Movie and TV Shows, not a flutter or a bead of sweat broke out on Evasi0n 1.0s digital brow…

  • Tyler

    Restarted my phone and now I’m stuck at the boot logo. I’ve tried resetting with home and power and I’m stuck. It restarted fine twice already 3rd time was not a charm. Any tips?

    • Tyler

      nvm 4th time is the charm I guess

  • jairo

    it says NETDB ERROR or something in cydia what the hell

  • jairo

    next time buy better servers cydia…

  • pinkoto

    What means a “full restore using iTunes” ? I know how to restore from backup, but “full restore” ?

    • jairo

      it means you go to itunes and select shift + restore and select ios 6.1 and wipe all old data so the iphone restores like new.

      • pinkoto

        I’m with the new iTunes and shift doesn’t seem to work, there are two buttons: “Restore from Backup” and “Restore iPhone” and if i restore so it is like new, how should I get my info back on it?

        • jairo

          you need to got to restore iphone and then click on restore while you click shift. Before that, sync all contacts, music and info so you can sync after you jailbreak your device.

          • pinkoto

            ok, I’m updating to 6.1 now, then I’ll restore and then jailbreak and then sync and if something goes wrong I’ll write here again :D thanks for the help

          • jairo

            yeah no problem wish you luck

  • iphone 4 user

    great job evasi0n …. just 5 or 6 min to jailbreak my iphone 4 … welcome back cydia i miss u so much

    Im on an Iphone 5 , IOS 6.0.1. Im thinking it I just jailbreak liek that or upgrade to 6.1? Is it possible that Apple will release 6.1.1. possibly and stop signing 6.1 and prevent updates? Can anyone report if 6.0.1. works better or worse then 6.1?

  • http://twitter.com/grenadetrade GrenadeTrade

    Any idea when an unlock is coming for 4s?

      • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

        You can restart the process by hardware resetting your device.

        Take a manual backup of your iOS device using iTunes and trying jailbreaking your iOS device using evasi0n again (download the latest version).

        If it still doesn’t work then do a full restore using iTunes and then jailbreak your iOS device using evasi0n.

  • Bas

    evasion does’nt detect my iphone 4s… it’s running ios 6.1

  • Theresek

    For something ppl say is easy, sure seems complicated, & unreliable. Most replys are pretty technical for the average joe. And if, for whatever reason, it screws up my phone, what then? Lots of “if that doesn’t work…”

    Hi guys, need your help – jailbreak went fine, have received updates from evasion & libstatusbar, now cannot even get the phone to function – has power but, no further than apple logo, have attempted a full restore via itunes (yes am prepared to jailbreak again) but, can’t even get the phone restored – itunes error 1604 if the PC even recognises the phone and can run it via USB – is this an issue we need to know about? ANY HELP APPRECIATED DESPERATE, thank you

    I have a 4s on 5.1.1 with JB but can’t get ITunes to upgrade to 6.1. I am getting an error “The iPhone “my iPhone name” could not be restored. This device isn’t eligible for the requested build.” I have tried to put it into DFU restore mode and still the same problem. I have removed the password to my backups as well but still no luck. Any ideas?

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

      It looks like you have host file entries that are pointing to Cydia servers instead of Apple servers.

      You need to edit the host file and comment out all the entries that have apple.com

      • JJK

        Many thanks… I went in and removed a line in the Hosts file for apple and it seems to be working. Many thanks!

    sir please help me,i try to jailbreak but whenever i connect my iphone4 6.1 it unexpecdtly closed ..please help

  • Ash

    I’m having a problem with evasi0n. It worked perfectly the first time but due to some problems arising I was forced to re-jailbreak. The first time I used evasi0n it took less than 5 minutes to complete. This time it’s taking much, much longer and I’m not sure if it is even working this time around. Whenever I reach “injecting stage 1″ or occasionally “injecting stage 2″ the program just sits there for around 30 minutes until it finally just restarts the program. I’m unsure as to what I should do and any help would be much appreciated.

  • Emily

    My jailbreak process seems to be stuck on “Injecting stage 1 jailbreak data.” The tutorial says it should take 5 minutes for the whole process but it’s been about 10 minutes at this step. I have iPhone 4 running iOS 6.1 just updated and did a full restore on iTunes. Had all apps closed and no passcode on the phone when I started evasi0n. Any suggestions?

    1.Connect your Device to Itunes and restore your Device to ios 6.1 update.
    2.Then launch ‘Redsnow’ & go to extras and click on ‘Select ISPW’ and choose the firmware ios 6.0 for that.
    3.Then go Back and Click on ‘Jailbreak’, it will takes some mins to activate your device.
    4.Then
    Go to extras and click on ‘Just Boot’ this will show you pipeapple logo
    on your device after that you will be on tethered jailbreak.
    5.But not job done yet as you will not able to use cydia every time you reboot your device.
    6.Now
    all you have to do for using cydia and want to have an untethered
    jailbreak so download evasion 1.0 and open it on your PC.
    7.After that evasion will recognize your device then click on ‘Jailbreak’.
    8.This
    will take some time to jailbreak it, make sure dont touch your device
    untill you will reach to that part which gives you to click on
    ‘Jailbreak icon only once from your device.
    9.Conratulations! Now you are completely done with ios 6.1 untethered jailbreak.

    What is a jailbreak!?

  • codycodered89

    does a jailbreak “unlock” a phone making it able to be on any carrier ?

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

      Jailbreaking allows you to install Ultrasn0w, which unlocks iPhone. However, it currently supports only iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 on older basebands.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rustyinseattle Russell C. Campbell

    Worked beautifully. I now have SWYPE on my iPhone!!

  • AndySHalalalala

    Thank you!! Cydia is free games ???

  • ty

  • ty

    the program will not detect my iphone 5 running 6.0.2, will not allow to click jailbreak button any suggestions? tried downloading again still same problem.

  • Nick

    The jailbreak icon on step 7 won’t appear on my phone. It’s a 3gs, but it should still work.. Right? Somebody help?

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

      Yes, it supports iPhone 3GS. Hardware reset your iPhone (press the Home and Sleep/Wake button simultaneously till you see the Apple logo) and try using evasi0n again.

      • Nick

        Any advice if this doesn’t work? A friend has my phone at the moment and is trying to figure it out. I’m no good at this.

  • independentwoman

  • star

    I have a 3GS phone and runing on IOS4.3X. how can i update it with the latest IOS something like 6.X

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

      If you don’t depend on software unlock such as Ultrasn0w then you can update it to iOS 6.1.2, which is the latest version currently using iTunes and then use evasi0n to jailbreak your iPhone using this tutorial.

  • gaming0092

    1.Connect your Device to Itunes and restore your Device to ios 6.1 update.

    2.Then launch ‘Redsnow’ & go to extras and click on ‘Select ISPW’ and choose the firmware ios 6.0 for that.

    3.Then go Back and Click on ‘Jailbreak’, Then untick on ‘cydia and just tick on ‘install baseband’ then it will takes some mins to activate your device.

    5.Now all you have to do for using cydia and want to have an untethered jailbreak so download evasion 1.0 for 6.1 and 1.5 for 6.1.2 and open it on your PC.

    6.After that evasion will recognize your device then click on ‘Jailbreak’.

    7.This will take some time to jailbreak it, make sure dont touch your device untill you will reach to that part which gives you to click on ‘Jailbreak’ icon only once from your device.

    8. Now your device will restart automatically couple of times to complete jailbreaking.

    9.Conratulations! Now you are completely done with ios 6.1 or 6.1.2 untethered jailbreak.

    hope you understand it and please give your views. any question then ask .. Thanks =)

    Thanks for the excellent presentation. My iphone 4 is SIM locked and I cannot get past the activation screen. Will this work on my device? How do I SIM lock then?

  • xiring

    does it work on iphone 4.. having 6.1.3

  • http://www.esourceparts.ca/ fix iphone screen

    Where I do see a value in getting the iPhone software opened up, is that once we have the iPhone unlocked then being able to use the device as an ultimately portable minicomputer working over a wifi network then we have something that’s going to be useful.
