evasi0n7 1.0.1 – Jailbreak for iOS 7 – iPhone 5 & Mac Tutorial

Finally, the jailbreak for iOS 7 has been released. There has been a little bit of drama with this jailbreak, more than usual. Basically, the people who wrote the jailbreak were paid to add an alternative App Store to iPhones in China. Like Cydia but for Chinese users. Users in China began to notice that the Chinese alternative app store, called TaiG, had pirated apps on it. That means that they were taking paid apps from the Apple App Store and copying them and making them free in the Taig app store. The jailbreak community wasn’t too happy about this. We even recommended users to not perform the jailbreak until the issue was resolved. Thankfully the alternative app store has now been removed from the jailbreak.

We are now going to jailbreak our devices and we will share a step-by-step guide on how we did it. First we will be using an Mac to jailbreak an iPhone 5 on firmware 7.0.4. This jailbreak works iPhone 5S, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s & iPhone 4 on firmware 7.0-7.0.4 and is compatible with all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.4.

  1. Well laid out tutorial. Any issues while performing these steps? Because the phone is too costly to experiment :)

  2. How long will it stay on Apple logo once jailbreak is loaded. I’m going on 5 minutes here.

  3. Mine is staying on the apple logo too . . .

  4. I just talked to the man himself (Douglas, I have connections :) and he said it could take 10 minutes or more.

    So I’ll be patient and wait . . .

  5. . . . up to 10 minutes and still waiting . . .

  6. I had to restore mine from backup, but I found out that it was because I updated my iPhone wirelessly. There is a note on the evasi0n site that there can be problems with devices that have been updated wirelessly. They recommend backing it up with iTunes and then wiping it and restoring it from iTunes.

    Here is where I got the information to reset my phone.


    • Sorry, I don’t think I was clear. If the phone has had updates wirelessly – Before jailbreaking the phone needs to be backed up with iTunes, then restored from iTunes. This will wipe the phone, install the latest update (beware!) and restore it to the backup.

    • After this the jailbreak worked correctly.

  7. Hurrah, that’s what I was searching for, what a information! existing here at this website, thanks
