How to Jailbreak iPad or iPad mini on iOS 7 – iOS 7.0.4 using evasi0n7 [Video]

evasi0n jailbreak

evad3rs gave us a big surprise earlier today by releasing evasi0n7, the eagerly awaited jailbreak for iOS 7 – iOS 7.0.4.

In this guide, we will take you through the step by step procedure to jailbreak your iPad or iPad mini running iOS 7 – iOS 7.0.4 using evasi0n for Mac and Windows.

Here are some important points to note before you proceed.

  • This tutorial is meant for iPad and iPad mini users. iPhone users can check this guide and iPod touch users can check this guide.
  • evasion performs an untethered jailbreak.
  • evasi0n supports iPad Air, Retina iPad mini, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, non-Retina iPad mini.
  • Please ensure you’ve updated iTunes to the latest version.
  • Important: Please do not forget to backup your iPad to iCloud or iTunes before you proceed.
  • If you encrypt the backup, then disable it temporarily by unchecking “Encrypt iPad backup” option in iTunes. Please don’t forget to enable the option after you’ve successfully jailbroken your iPad.
  • evasi0n is compatible with iOS 7, iOS 7.0.1, iOS 7.0.2, iOs 7.0.3 and iOS 7.0.4 (Settings -> General -> About – Version)
  • Please note that jailbreaking your iPad may void your warranty and hence proceed with caution and at your own risk
  • Please do not jailbreak your iPad to pirate apps from the App Store.
  • Warning: We’re hearing some users having problems using the jailbreak, so you may want to wait for evad3rs to release an update which fixes the initial bugs.

Step 1: Download the latest version of evasion jailreak, evasi0n7 from this link and save it in a folder named “evasi0n” on your desktop.

Step 2: Double click the downloaded file and extract the application to the evasi0n folder. 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 iPad.

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 iPad to the computer. evasi0n should detect your iPad and also mention the iOS firmware that is running on it. Click on the Jailbreak button.

Step 6: After clicking on the Jailbreak button the tool will give a progress update on the various stages of the jailbreak process such as:

  • Retrieving remote package
  • Uploading jailbreak data
  • Injecting evasion app (1/2)
  • Injecting evasion app (2/2)
  • Configuring system (1/2)
  • Configuring system (2/2)
  • Rebooting device

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

Step 7: Once your iPad has rebooted, you will get a message informing you to unlock your iPad. Do not close the evasi0n application.

Step 8: Unlock your iPad and then tap on the evasi0n 7 app (the one with the evasi0n 7 icon).

Step 9: When you launch the evasi0n app, the screen will go white and your iPad will reboot again.

Step 10: The rest of the jailbreak process will now take place on your iPad. After you iPad reboots, you will see a large evasi0n logo with messages informing you on the status of the jailbreak process such as:

  • Reading kernel
  • Calculating offsets
  • Setting up packages
  • Setting up Cydia
  • Continuing with boot

Step 11: After it has rebooted, you’re done. It has been successfully jailbroken and you should be able to find the Cydia icon on the home screen  (it may not be on the first page so search for it to locate it).

Check out this video tutorial on how to jailbreak your iPad using evasi0n7:

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

Note: If you had upgraded to iOS 7.x 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 iPad secure.

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.

      You need to update your software and restart your computer

  • Scarlett

    my iphone stuck on the apple logo after the jailbreak.. what can i do now?

    • Nurul Hoque Munna

      i have same problem…plz tell me the solution…asap

      • Scarlett

        i’ve found a solution: your phone need to be in the maintenance state (hold the power and hold button at the same time) wait until your device reboot 2 times and than connect it with the computer. than launch the evasi0n app and install it once again. when your computer don’t detect your device, you have to restore your phone from the backup and do it again with the evasi0n app.. this may help you

        • vin

          i have tried this and still no go.

        • tsatsos

          man i have the same problem my ipad crash at logo an i cant connect it to my pc to backup it…what i can do for this?

          • Rob

            Dude stfu about Android.. Im so proud of you for loving your Android. Now stuff it up your butt and stop with your idiotic unhelpful comments :)

          • Joshan Joy

            just put ur ipad in DFU mode (google how to put ur ipad in DFU mode) and restore it

            Same pblm with me (crashed @ logo)

          • Savvas Tsatsos

            thank man…all done…;)

    • kick a puppy

      throw it in the garbage and buy an android tablet/smartphone. That way you can do all the stuff you would like to do without the need for a jailbreak…

      • Rob

        idiot

  • Mark

    After I’ve done the JB is there an unlock?

  • Ibrahim Hassan Darwesh

    we need a way to bypass the activation code , that’s the most thing we need because of secondhand purchasing :( thank you , we wait you to do the best

  • MOHAMED SEEDA

    the problem is the phone must be activated before you use it and i have a problem my device is on ios 7.0.4 and my right half of the touch screen not working so when i try to use it the program said i must activate my device first is there any way to resolve it?

  • zulle

      • Burat

        Not working with iPad 2 wifi. Pakingsyet!

      • irshad

        same problem with ipad 2, hard reset and restored with itunes to 7.0.4 and it worked after that

        • long

          is that because you updated through air?
          had the same problem with my ipad mini, updated through air. so had to restore the whole thing.

          read a post somewhere that they say to restore it to stock 7.0.4 using itune then begin the jb:D

          sorry if my english is bad

      • zertux

        The stuck on apple logo problem happens when you have updated your iPhone using “on the air method” (where you update your device from settings, not from computer).

        To solve this issue, simply restore your device using iTunes and then apply the jailbreak.

        • Mark

          iTunes can not detect the iPad !

          • Duke

            I got the same error with my iPad 3. Have you found a solution?

          • Calv

            Reset the iPad’s settings

      • whatsupman6

        help what do i do my iPad mini is working fine but evasion didn’t install cydia… what do i do I’m using iOS 7.0.6
        what do i do??!!

        • Jack

          Same thing happened to me!!

    • Mason

      Same Here

    • verto

      exactly the same problem but it works with 4S, also for stucked ipads first connect usb to pc then hold home button and plug cable to ipad wait 10 seconds or so until restore icon appears.

    • Kurai Atonitsuka

      Same here.

    • sam

      If your device is stuck on the Apple Boot Logo screen, don’t worry, there is hope!

      You’ll need to put your phone into IPHONE RECOVERY MODE (just look up
      online, kinda hard from the Boot Logo Screen but not impossible, so
      don’t give up!)

      From there you’ll be able to restore your device to factory setting and download the newest version of the Apple software.

      You should in theory be able to jailbreak with no problem after this
      because it’s not an Air Update. Hope this helps, good luck everyone!

      • Seith

        I did this with my iphone and it works but it doesnt with my ipad2! It gets stuck on the apple logo!!

    • Sachin

      I used evasi0n 7.1.0.2 on my iPad 2 Wifi and it worked like charm. Cydia is working fine as well. Try this if not yet done.

        yes, but first backup, restore using iTunes (essential for it to work) then apply the jailbreak.

    • MineVideo

So I tried to download it again and now it says it won’t open because it is from an unknown developer. :( What should I do????

  • jas

    I’m trying to jailbreak my iPhone 4 and the logo never showed up and It never said it was done? help meeeeee

  • tRaveLucky

    Most people experience trouble with the Apple logo freezing after completing jailbreak. For me, it was because I had updated my iPad through air, instead of through iTunes. To fix this, put your device through DFU mode (Have itunes on background with usb cable connected to apple product– in this case, my iPad– hold power button 3secs then hold home button for another 7 secs– WITHOUT releasing the power button. Your iTunes will detect the device and do a restore and update). Once done, try the jailbreak again. It should work.

    Good luck!

  • GREG

    nice work ;)ipad air 7.0.4

    using iphone 5 and tried wif evasion 7 1.04 windows version. It says failed to retrieve package info from internet.

    • Gautam

      It looks like the firewall is blocking evasi0n7 from connecting to the internet, so you need to disable the firewall or allow evasi0n7 to access the internet.

      • sad

        i turned off the firewall. I tried wif windows 7 and windows xp and turned off firewall for both bt still get same failed to retrieve info…

      If you have antivirus or firewall software running on the computer it could be behind the issue. So try turning it off.
