PSA: Jailbreak apps and tweaks relying on MobileSubstrate may have issues with evasi0n7 on iOS 7

evasi0n jailbreak

The evad3rs team took everyone by surprise with the release of evasi0n7 jailbreak for iOS 7, including the creator of Cydia, Jay Freeman aka saurik. This means tweaks relying on mobilesubstrate could have issues with the new jailbreak.

Freeman complained that he was not given early builds of evasi0n, so he couldn’t ensure MobileSubstrate was working fine. He also said that he wasn’t asked for an official Cydia build for iOS 7, and the Cydia build included in evasi0n is “unofficial.”

pod2g, member of the evad3rs team said that they’re working on a fix for the MobileSubstrate related issues, which could be delivered as a 1.x update to evasi0n7.

Most jailbreak apps rely on MobileSubstrate to tweak system functions, so this could make the first version of evasi0n disappointing for many people who would want to change the way iOS 7 looks or functions. Hopefully, a fix is released soon.

    on system(2/2) config… plz help.

    • Nope

      The readme states that it’s safe to just restart the process if something happens along the way. Try that.

      • Bilal

        I did the whole process and Jailbreak is done but then the whole ios 7 just crashed and now I am restoring it via Itunes. It seems that I have to waite a while before I try it again. :(

        • Austin

          Same thing just happened to me. Lost everything. But I have a fresh install of Jailbroken iOS 7.4 now. : /

          • Bilal

            so you lost everything but the next try u done it? now my Ipad is restored should I try the jailbreak again?:D

          • david

            my first attempt failed as well, did a restore and tried again, worked perfectly. Now jailbroken.

          • Bilal

            I will try one more time. lets see if it works this time.

    • Eriksen Alarcon

      Back up, restore iphone, jailbreak and reload back up

  • Steve

    Waiting for Saurik to say Cydia is good. Not much to do till it is all sorted out. Shouldn’t be long.

    • jonathan

      got jailbreak yet but cant have any package on cydia… thats boring :/

      • user

        breaked iphone 5 worked perfectly Ipad 2 No luck… gave up.

        Ipad 2 keeps rebooting…. nothing worked.

        • eric

          update via iTunes not ota . then follow steps for jailbreak

    • XweAponX

      cYdia update to 1.1.9 this AM.

  • david

    5 icon dock and ikeywi are working on 5c 7.0.4

    • nutsofamily

      It works but the spacing is ALL wrong

      • XweAponX

        But you don’t need 5-icon dock, I think you can cram 6 down there by default

        • Ryan Hogan

          6 icons on a dock only works for iPads. For iPhones and iPods it you can only fit 4.

          • XweAponX

            Ah… I use Infinidock and cascade on my phone.

  • Suleman

    problem with jailbreak ios 7.0.4 Cant see icons of apps store contacts and cydia. sim also not working. can anyone help me with that.

    • brojon3s

      had the same problem did a restore using iTunes then redid the jailbreak works fine now, i used iCloud to get my contacts and other data back

  • Bilal

    eh.. lost everything for nothing… My Ipad 2 still crashing and it seems to be the end of my dream to jailbreak my ipad. I am going to restore my ipad and give up!

    if anybody have idea so comment plz….. I don’t know why am feeling that we will never get cydia on IOS 7.

    • Ivan

      You didnt read the “IMPORTANT! READ ME!”
      It said Ipad 2 is incompatible at the moment… That;s on you.

  • Chris Workman

    I’m being cautious, but I’ve installed Mobile Substrate with iKeyWi with no problems.

    • XweAponX

      And it works? How about SBSettings?

      • Chris Workman

        Seems fine. Along with mobile substrate I’ve also done ikeywi, swipe selection, tether me, as to call, password pilot and no carrier name. So far so good.

        • XweAponX

          Tether Me is what I need, so you say substrate works on iPhone 4S? Someone said it…

  • homeless

  • alycef

    my phone is stuk on the apple screen can anyone help me?

    • Jamie Robertson

      put phone in dfu mode , update via iTunes not ota . then follow steps for jailbreak

      • Ahmed Azab

        how to put in dfu mode

        • asd

          hold power button and then hold home buttom

          • Jamie Robertson

            You need to hold both home and power buttons at the same time for about 10 -12 seconds then release power button but continue holding home button for about 15 -20 seconds . iTunes will inform you that it has detected a iPhone in recovery mode and needs to be restored . If you see the iTunes screen and the charge plug end on your phone screen you are not in dfu mode you are in recovery . Start the steps over again till iTunes says you are in recovery and your iPhone screen is black . Then proceed with the restore .

  • emitrepus

    im on 7.0.4 ipad mini, got stuck on apple logo after jailbreak was done! hmmm…. anyone encoutered this thing?

    • Ryan Hogan

      Same thing happened to me. Just restore it then try again; worked for me!

    • Jamie Robertson

      Sounds like a lot if people are having problems . Make sure you do the update via iTunes not over the air on your device . When doing update put phone in dfu mode and update that way .

  • brandony0

    Does SBSettings work ?

      you will need to restore your device then try to jailbreak it again. the same thing happened to me earlier today, it was caused by ota update as far as i can tell.

      Hard reboot: hold home and power buttons down until iPhone restarts.

    • FireRx

    my ipad 4 is skuck on apple screen too. can’t do a thing. please anyone?

    • Gautam

      Try hardware reset. Press the Sleep/Wake (Power) button and Home button simultaneously till the Apple logo goes off.

      If that doesn;t work then you will have to restore your iPad by putting it in recovery mode.
