Users can jump right in and try the evasi0n jailbreak tool, but for the best results Planetbeing recommends the following steps.

  1. Make up a backup with iTunes.
  2. Restore the device with iTunes.
  3. Select “Set up as new device” on the device itself during the setup process after the device is restored. Do not select “Set up as new iPhone” or “Restore from this backup” on iTunes yet.
  4. Jailbreak your device.
  5. Open up Cydia for the first time to allow it to “prepare the filesystem”. Wait for the respring to happen.
  6. Start iTunes again and select “Restore from this backup” to get everything back on there.

These steps will help users avoid any iOS 6 jailbreak errors while using the evasi0n tool. Errors with the last iPhone 4S jailbreak were solved by following similar steps, so it’s a good idea to spend the extra time restoring the device.

The iOS 6 jailbreak from evad3rs is free, but user can donate to the team on the evasi0n homepage, with payments made through PayPal. Be wary of any website that charges for an iOS 6 jailbreak up front and stick to trusted websites for the iOS 6 jailbreak software.
