evasi0n7-logo-400x400

Apple released iOS 7.0.6 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch yesterday, which fixed a major security issue.

If you’ve upgraded to iOS 7.0.6 then check out this step-by-step guide where we show you how to jailbreak your iOS device running iOS 7.0.6 using evasi0n7 1.0.6, which was just released by evad3rs.

Here are some important points to note before you proceed.

  • This tutorial is meant for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 7.0.6 (Settings -> General -> About – Version). If you’re any other version check out this webpage for the link to the latest guides for your iOS version.
  • evasion performs an untethered jailbreak
  • evasi0n supports the following devices:
    • iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and iPhone 4
    • iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air
    • iPad mini, Retina iPad mini
    • iPod touch 5G
  • Please ensure you’ve updated iTunes to the latest version.
  • Important: Please do not forget to backup your device using iTunes before you proceed.
  • If you encrypt the backup, then disable it temporarily by unchecking “Encrypt iPhone backup” option in iTunes. Please don’t forget to enable the option after you’ve successfully jailbroken your iPhone.
  • Please note that jailbreaking your iOS device 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.
  • 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.
  • You may use this guide to jailbreak your iPad and iPod touch 5g with evasi0n7 as well.

Step 1: Download evasi0n7 1.0.6 for Mac or Windows from this link and save it in a folder named “evasi0n” on your desktop. Please note that able to test the Mac version. so please proceed with caution.

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 iOS device.

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 device to the computer. evasi0n should detect it 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 iOS device is rebooted, you will get a message informing you to unlock it. Do not close the evasi0n application.

Step 8: Unlock your device 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 reboot again.

Step 10: The rest of the jailbreak process will now take place on your iOS device. After you it will reboot, 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 your device’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 device (if necessary by holding down Hold and Home until it shuts down), and rerun the process.

Note: If you had upgraded to iOS 7.0.6 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 jailbroken device secure.

    need some help here..
    thx

    • Gautam

      The issue generally happens if you’re on slow machines. You could either try this again on another computer or alternatively, give evasi0n process a higher priority via the Task manager.

      • Asiq

        but its stuck at the configuring system even when i already unplug my phone

  • Schegoggs

    Worked great. My school’s wifi is so bad it’s more beneficial to use my unlimited data to connect my devices rather than the wifi lol so I needed this. Thanks!

  • hellooooooooooo

    i tried jailbreaking my iphone 4 on ios 7.0.6 and the program tells me that ios 7.0.6 (11B651) is not compatible.

    • Gautam

      This is on the Mac or Windows?

      • Vipul Sharma

        When I was done (2 reboots), evasi0n is there, but no cydia

  • SnakePlisskin77

    Ok, I just connected my 5s and evasi0n7 says “iPhone 5s (GSM) is already jailbroken. Jailbreaking again is NOT recommended.” However, it’s clear that my phone is back at factory settings. I’m on Windows 7. Any suggestions?

    • SnakePlisskin77

      I ran the jailbreak, anyway. Everything seems good to go. Now, I get t spend the next 2 hours re-downoading and re-tweaking all over, again.

  • Reinaldo

    I tried to jailbreak, but it seems that the evasi0n7 file do not works, I’m using windows 7, and my Iphone is 64GB Iphone 5s

  • Reinaldo

    any suggestion?

  • jared

    It seemed to have gone through the entire jailbreak process, but then after rebooting a 2nd time, cydia is gone…

  • Sebastian Rasch

    Gonna wait for the official version.

    • hypnopotamus

      Second that! :D

  • cookietos

    at the end of the progress evasi0n7 closes and no cydia icon is installed (ipad2 gsm ios 7.0.6)

    • Taiyeb Tariq

      Same thing, but with Ipad mini. Someone HELP!

    • Imperator RhYno DOns

      me to

    • Sayon Camara

      Thnx u Verry much.

  • Naseef Rahman

    Thanks to all who confirmed it is OK to JB 7.0.6. I just did it and worked perfectly.
    iPhone 5s 7.0.6

    • Abdelrahman

      using Windows?

      • Naseef Rahman

        Yes windows 7 64 bit..

        • Gana

          is your cydia wirking?
          my cydia cannot ocate any packages

  • nshap

    says the file is broken

  • SnakePlisskin77

    Well, my 5s (64GB, T-Mo) got all FUBARed after I did the unofficial 7.0.6 jailbreak. I lost my phone, calendar and about a dozen more stock apps and about 1/3 of the Cydia apps I tried to re-download got stuck or were not found at all (yes, I added all my previous sources). I’m now doing a full factory restore just to get a working phone. I’ll just wait for the official 7.0.6 evasi0n7 before trying another jailbreak. It’s disgusting that Apple blocks so much functionality. You never realize what you’re missing until you use a jailbroken phone.

    • SnakePlisskin77

      After full restore and now using the official 7.0.6 JB, everything is running smoothly.

  • Abdelrahman

    does it work good for windows?

  • DCS

    It’s working for my iPhone 4.

  • Jt

    I think unless people are using public wifi you should just wait. Apple has specifically said it’s only a vulnrability for hackers who are on your wifi network, and the only wifi network I use is my certainly secure home one.

  • SnakePlisskin77

    The official 7.0.6 JB is available on evasi0n’s website. I’m trying it now.

    • nishit

      did it work perfectly or did it got stuck at apple logo

      • SnakePlisskin77

        Worked great for me.

  • HORROR

    THANK YOU SO MUCH iPhoneHacks .. You’re the best… You’re WELCOME! ;)

  • lorddeitylink

    • Lilbreaker

      Yeah I did, just follow the instructions and it should work out perfectly!

    • amy

      not for me! my device is not recognised with the computer

  • Vipul Sharma

    i am stuck when my phone reboots and its supposed to say reading kernel. precisely step 10 dosent happen, Can any one help

  • amy

    Help please! My device has not been recognised by the evasi0n. Any suggestions to fix this?

    • Nirel

      You might have plugged it in un the wrong socket on your computer. That is what happened with me.

  • Shahzeb Khan Jadoon

    • Ricardo Meleiro

      You need to wait 30-40 seconds everytime the jailbreak software ask to unlock your device.

  • Mk Yap

    I have jailbreaked my device earlier. Anyone knows how to update to ios7.0.6 after the jailbreak?

    • Sammyako

      MK Yap, first backup your device and then click on Restore > Retore and Update, itunes will the install the new ios on your device , once done unplug from itunes and follow the on screen instructions. Then you can proceed with jail breaking your device when done connect back to itunes and restore your backup

  • Jordan

    Brilliant, worked perfectly thanks for the latest jailbreak. Just follow the steps its easy.

  • shan

      I have the same problem ! What’s your device ?

      • jay

        iPhone 5

        • Ricardo Meleiro

          Weird! I am using Ipad MINI + Cellular! If you find the solution please share with us. I will do the same

        • Ricardo Meleiro

          Hello I found a solution. You need to wait 30-40 seconds everytime the jailbreak software ask to unlock your device. I restored my device on my last backup! only this! I Hope this solution works for you

          • jay

            Tried didn’t do anything and ran all software without unlocking it and still same thing

          • Ricardo Meleiro

            Do you use a passcode ?

          • jay

            No I jailbreak so many iPhone but that one no clue I do everything like always but just can’t see cydia and see only evansi0n icon

          • Gautam

            Did you take a backup of your iOS device using iTunes before trying it?

            Do you get an error message or are you stuck at a particular step?

            Is this on a Windows computer? Did you run evasi0n as an administrator?

          • jay

            Factory reset the iphone and using iMac , gonna try windows next see what that does!

            Yes I am the administrate

          • Ricardo Meleiro

            OK. I was facing the same problem as you. I just restored a backup , set a passcode and every step the Software asked to unlock my device, I waited 30-40 seconds. After the last step I saw the DONE! message, the tablet rebooted and I saw the cydia app!

          • jay

            The whole thing runs to the end all steps like always but never see cydia only the evasi0n icon that’s all

          • Gautam

            Did you tap on the evasi0n icon as mentioned in Step 9?

            Try hardware resetting your device (press home and power button simultaneously till you see the Apple logo, then release it), and trying again after the device has restarted.

          • jay

            Did the update from iOS 7.0.6 OTA and that cussed the problem

    • Matoly

      after you finsh the last step try searching for cydia using the search as they said : you should be able to find the Cydia icon on your device’s home screen (it may not be on the first page so search for it to locate it)

      • jay

        Found out why!!!! Last time I update OTA and that’s why! Restored the iPhone over the computer and that’s all

  • Remi

    The program stop at the 10th step…ipad 4.

      1 – Restore you device from ITUNES

      2 – SET a passcode

      3 – Begin the jailbreak process

      4 – The Jailbreak software will ask twice to unlock your device. Wait 1 minute at time before unlock the device.

      5 – Resume the jailbreak process

      6 – The process will finish and you will see the message ”DONE!”

      7 – Your device will be reboot

      8 – Check the cydia app

      I was facing the same problem as you. I followed this steps and it solved my problem. I hope it works for you to.

    downloaded the Evasi0n 7 software by clicking on the link provided in Step 1 but when I double clicked on the icon after downloading got the error message that evasi0n 7 cannot be opened because of a problem. It said to check with developer to make sure the software will work with my version of Mac OS X, 10.6.8. The Details window says “Library not loaded; Reason: Incompatible library version: evasi0n7 requires version 7.0.0 or later, but libcurl.4.dylib provides version 6.0.0.” please advise…

    Hi, my iphone5s is an unlocked CDMA phone from verizon with 7.0.6 and I was stuck at injecting 2/2 jailbreak app. SOMEBODY help. Is my phone supported at this time for jailbreak

    • Gautam

      Are you trying this on a Mac or a PC?

      • yh

        On a PC with win8

        • Gautam

          This usually happens if you have a slow PC. Try it on another computer, or go to the task manager, right click on the evasi0n process and give it higher priority and try again.

          • yh

            Well, my PC is not slow. I’m pretty sure about that. I will try again later. Thanks. Maybe CDMA phones are not supported.

  • yahiya

    worked fine.. iphone 4 ,, ios7.0.6

  • Andrew

    Do you have to update to 7.0.6 from 7.0.4 in iTunes to jailbreak this or do I skip that step?

  • sam

    I did the download ran the program and got to the point of jailbreaking said eversion doesn’t support current ios version. I have 7.0.6
    disappointed as iphone hacks is the only website I use and I consider safe and reliable. yet the instructions state it does support 7.0.6

    • mason

    • Gautam

      evasi0n7 does not work on OS X 10.6.8. To be able to jailbreak, use a Mac on 10.7 or later or a Windows computer on XP or later.

  • Joey t

    If it doesnt work. Restore your iphone on Your PC with Itunes and retry it. Worked for me.

    • Joey t

      If that doesn’t work, download ‘evasion 7 version 1.0.2′ and use that to jailbreak your device.

    • j

      i want to restore through pc. but when i click RESTORE. it says RESTORE AND UPDATE and CANCEL…. how can i restore without updating?

  • Rodney W.

    It worked up until the point after I opened Cydia for the first time. After that, it rebooted, but Cydia did not come back up after it turned back on, and many of my apps, such as Message and the App Store were gone.

  • karan

  • EagleLooker

    Need some help. I’ve followed all the tips from the readme file, and the jailbreak wouldn’t work! Not even a recovery can help.
    My device is an iPhone 5 iOS 7.0,6

  • macselite

    After I do this, how do I unlock the phone so I can use any SIM card? It’s a T-Mobile 5S running iOS 7.0.6.

    • http://www.bestwhatif.com/ iAmAtPeace

      Same question for me, thé new SIM card is not working, is there an additional step? (Original carrier AT&T ; new SIM from orange before switching to free) thanks

  • Guest

  • Ron

  • c’est la vie

    After i pressed evasion7, it rebooted but it stay as evasion7 instead of Cydia, why is it so ?

    • J

      same with my iphone4. the evasion7 didnt show up full screen after restarting by clicking the icon. and once restarted. icon is same. not changed to cydia… n i cant FORMAT and try to restore for a clean try once again. coz if i restore, the option is just RESTORE AND UPDATE. which means ill get 7.1. n there is no jailbreak for that. im stuck.

      • BekahCake

        i tried erasing everything on my phone then plugged it into my computer to restore so that i continue to have ios 7.0.6 but mine will still not complete the jail break :/ so idk..

    • Greg

      The same thing happened with mine. I am using Iphone 5 GSM (Model A1428). This happened even in the latest version 1.08. Tried several times with no luck. The evasion7 icon continues on the screen and no cydia

  • John

    It’s not working for me either! The same as Ty. Mine is an iPad 2.

  • Najib

    Worked very very fine on Iphone 4, iOS 7.0.6! Had to install the iOS through iTunes though.

    • rishabh

  • joe

  • HELP US !

    Im trying with an Mini Ipad when it goes almost in the final Step it says “Modifying Rootfs ” and then it closes by itself and it leaves me with the evasi0n icon instead of cydia , its curious that the step mentioned before its not showing in your list .

  • Methods

    New to the iPhone and Jailbreaking scene.
    Updated iPhone 4 from 7.0.5 to 7.0.6 OTA.
    10 minutes tops, and simple to follow instructions above my phone is jailbroken.
    Thank you very much for your time and efforts in making what I thought was going to be a nightmare into a easy task, now I can install ‘Remote Messages’ which is the reason I’m here.

    Once again TYVM!

    not able jailbreak iphone 4

  • help

    hi so i have been trying to jailbreak my iphone 5 with the evasi0n 7.0.7 and it has been stuck in the configurng sistem(2/2) for 10 minutes.what should i do??

    • Jen

      Mine is doing this too! Did yours ever make it past this point?

  • Ahmad Karanouh

    It says Already jailbroken! I dont know why.. Should i ignore that??

    • LulamaeBroadway

      Same problem – hope someone answers

    • Ed Ablola

      Was your phone already jailbroken prior to updating to 7.0.6? Did you do a OTA or with itunes update?

    • Thiago Dornelas

      Hi! I was having the same problem. I made a backup before updating the iOS to 7.0.6. After the updating and automatic restore in itunes I did the steps below:
      1- restore again but as new phone
      2- jailbreak
      3- restore from backup

      • Ed Ablola

        Did all your apps, tweaks and settings worked after the restore from backup?

        • Thiago Dornelas

          No, they didn’t. One thing, I made a backup of all my Cydia packages using OpenBackup. But only if you did the same, its important to say. After I made the last restore from iTunes, I installed OpenBackup from Cydia and restored the Cydia packages. When I booted the iPhone, there were missing a lot of apps, from iTunes. So I tried to restore again from iTunes without success. But… I unpluged the USB cable, pluged it back and iTunes started to SYNCHRONIZE… at this very moment, all my apps are going back to the iPhone and with the very same layout before iOS 7.0.6 (including those layout modifications provided by some Cydia tweaks).

        • Thiago Dornelas

          I’m still fighting with the phone… after everything done, it keeps rebooting on safe mode. I’ll do everything again right now…

  • WAZUP

    it keeps saying, “failed uploading jailbreak data. please rerun the program and try again.”

    • WAZUP

      btw I ran it on my I pad mini with a windows 7 computer, hope that helps…

      • Ed Ablola

        Same answer as with Jennifer. Did you update to 7.0.6 OTA? Restore with itunes using downloaded 7.0.6 ipsw. then JB.

  • ranjodh

    its taking a long time at the last reboot it sais done so I unplugged it but its still at the apple logo

  • Jennifer

    I tried this dozens of times with my iPhone 5s IOS 7.0.6 and every time I get to configuration (2/2) and it freezes?! Please help!

    • Ed Ablola

      Did you upgrade to 7.0.6 OTA? Restore phone using itunes using downloaded 7.0.6 ipsw. Then JB.

  • reza

    when i connect my ipad to recognize it this error is disapeared :

    error communicating with attached device.try replugging it.(e=-5)

    what can i do?

  • Alex

    Downloaded the evasi0n, but when I open it it just brings up iTunes, what didnI do wrong?

  • Sarah

    I’ve managed to download the software, I then plug my phone in and nothing happens? Doesn’t seem to be recognising my device.. any suggestions?

    • Ed Ablola

      Try rebooting your phone.

  • Ed Ablola

    Using a JB IP4s on iOS 7.04. Wish to upgrade to 7.06 and rejailbreak, how do I keep my apps, tweaks and settings? Is it as easy as backing it up on itunes, updating to 7.06 on itunes, jailbreak then restore using my backup on itunes?

  • belgium

    workes perfect thanks iphonehacks

  • Jhonatan

    For anyone having 7.0.6 issues with:

    1. evasi0n 7 computer program closing after second reboot
    2. Cydia app is not installed.

    Backup and completely restore your iphone using itunes. By restore, i mean, complete factory reset (itunes will install 7.0.6). Make sure to backup your device in case. Hope that helps, finally got mine working. Thanks!

    • J

      i don wana risk my mobile on this instruction. please help. coz when i click RESTORE. it says RESTORE AND UPDATE or CANCEL. i dont wana update. that will make it 7.1….. i think i need to restore WITHOUT update. how can i do that?

  • Guest

  • Guest

    Guys, after i jailbroke my iPhone 4S. My messages app was gone, if you had this, just go to Cydia and search for “Messages” problem solved! :) Thanks iPhone Hacks, I was really nervous when I was jailbreaking it, but no apps got affected. Thanks a lot! :)

  • PJ

    SIM card still not recognized after successful untethered JB

    I have an iphone 4 with ios 7.0.6, after a successful untethered JB with Evasi0n7 1.0.7, the phone is still “no service”. Also, with the old expired sim card, iphone shows a “carrier“ option under general/settings where I can ID the telco. But with the new valid sim card, that “carrier” option is gone. Anyone has any idea?

    Thanks.

    isn’t safe for jailbreaking ??

  • TK Ham

    I am successfully running evasi0n7 1.0.7 jailbreak on iPhone 5 (AT&T/GSM) with iOS 7.0.6. Since some Apple apps are not working properly, I want to restore to iOS 7.0.6 and re-jailbreak. When I attempt an IPSW file restore, I consistently get ‘This device isn’t eligible for the requested build’. I checked my HOSTS file and I have no Apple entries. Any ideas?

    • TK Ham

      I finally noticed on another post/subject’s comments that I may be screwed since Apple has stopped signing that version (7.0.6). For some reason I thought we could always go back when the file is on hand.

  • StephenCurry30

    • Ed Ablola

      Try a hard reset.

  • icycool

    I tried jailbreaking my iphone with evasi0n 1.0.7. At no point did the process hang (like getting stuck at apple logo) and the evasi0n software also did not give any message after completion. But it seems jailbreak was not successful as there is no cydia icon on my iphone. The phone had re-booted twice during the process (second time after i opened the evasi0n icon on my iphone). Can you tell me what went wrong and how to fix it? Thanks

  • Steve D

    I need to restore my iPhone 5 because I updated to iOS 7.0.6 using OTA. Unfortunately, 7.1 is out. Is there anyway I can restore to 7.0.6 without updating?

  • Sandy

    I have 2 queries – (I have iPhone 5)

    1) Power button does not work on my iPhone. So incase jailbreak interupts then I wont be able to reboot phone in safe mode.

    Will there be any alternative for that or wont need power button at all ?

    2) Incase Jailbreak does not work then how to take phone on original settings (before the jailbrak) so I can go for factory unlock ?
    I heard that we need to backup some files for that, want to know if it is required ? what excatly needs to be backed up ? and how to restore it ?

    I have jailbroken lots of devices including ones with ios 6 and 7 and on one jailbreak with a ipod 5g and ios 7.0.6 it got to the evasion app white screen but never rebooted. I tryed jailbreaking it 3 times. What u can do is get ios 6.0.5 or 6.0.4 filmware then downgrade your device the jailbreak. That worked for me. And DO NOT upgrade after the jailbreak. I hope this helped

  • Darren

    Hey guys, does anyone know if doing a backup, then on the iPad go to Reset->Erase All Content and Settings, restore backup and then using evasi0n will allow the ipad to be jailbroken? I’m on iOS 7.0.6 that was updated OTA and have been trying evasi0n 1.0.7. Since that’s known to not work and restoring is now not an option since 7.1.1 is out, I was wondering if a reset might work? Any and all help is very appreciated.

    • Darren

      Forgot to mention that evasi0n fails for me at step 10, I don’t see the large evasi0n logo and associated messages, and don’t end up with the Cydia icon.

  • OldDezy Dez
