By now most of you will know that Evasion has been released to jailbreak iOS 7. The first untethered jailbreak for iOS 7 is here. As you would expect many people are facing problems while jailbreaking. If you are one of those people, this post is for you. Here we have a comprehensive solution to fixing most problems while jailbreaking with evasion on iOS 7.
Evasion Jailbreak Problems
We have been receiving a lot of messages regarding some very common problems while trying to jailbreak iOS 7 using Evasion. Some of these problems range from iPhone, iPad or iPod touch being stuck at the Apple logo or getting into an endless reboots. If you have any problem, we have the solution for you.
So let’s directly dig into fixing some of the most common problems while jailbreaking with evasion.
Stuck At Apple Logo
This is by far one of the most common problems many people are facing. When trying to jailbreak iPhone, iPad or iPod touch using evasion, you get stuck at the Apple logo. Don’t worry this is a very common problem and it has a solution.
This problem arises if you have updated to an iOS 7 version using the OTA feature Apple has. So how do you fix it? Well it is very simple. Evad3rs has mentioned that they are going to update Evasion to fix this issue but until then you can do a clean restore and get the device jailbroken.
STEP 1: Connect your iOS device to computer and start iTunes.
STEP 2: Backup your data.
STEP 3: Hit the restore button and restore to iOS 7.0.4
STEP 4: Once restored. Attempt the jailbreak again and this time it should work.
Even if that does not work, then I suggest you to wait until Evasion gets updated to fix this problem.
Sometimes your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch will go in an endless reboot mode. It will continue to reboot; well, until the battery runs out. This problem is related to the MobileSubstrate.
As you know that this jailbreak has been surrounded with controversy, especially after we find out that evasion comes bundled with a cracked app store; and that Cydia founder was not taken into account. Therefore the MobileSubstrate had not been updated to support the iOS 7, and because of this many apps are not going to work properly.
The only way to avoid this problem is not installing any app or until the problem gets resolved once Cydia has been updated.
Error While Jailbreak
As this is the first version of the iOS 7 untethered jailbreak; we were bound to face some problems. So don’t freak out if you are facing any other problem, as they will be fixed with up-coming versions of evasion.
If you get a message saying Evasion can’t be opened on OS X; do the following:
- If you get an error on OS X saying that evasi0n can’t be opened, control-click (or right-click) the app and on the revealed context menu, choose ‘Open.’ On the ensuing dialogue box, choose ‘Open’ as well.
