  1. I enter evasion on my computer but i don’t get that jailbreak thing…. It is there but I can’t click that icon

  2. Cydia servers must be overloaded currently, seems only natural with millions of us trying to access at the same time.

    As to JBing OTA updated systems, evasi0n team explicitly recommended against it, so I am certainly going to go the backup->clean restore->jailbreak->restore backup route.

    • download what?? when you plug your phone to computer?? if everytime you okug your computer on itunes it means you check the box that whenever it was plug itunes will automatically open… uncheck that one …. then open the app icon of evasion… extract it first then run…

    • have you open the file you downloaded?? you have to look on the folder where your diwnloaded files goes or saved….in windows it was zip… so you have to extract it first before you can run it…. when you double click it … theres a choices if you extract it first or run….

    • or you mean the evasion jailbreak icon on the iphone when it still in process of jailbreaking??? you have to swipe right to check… if its still no there… try another mirrow then download it again….

  3. it works on my iphone 4s but discovered a bug> my WEATHER keeps on crashing.. any idea how to fix this? thanks

  4. I’ve got the same problem as some other users above. Jailbreak works fine up to the step when I have to unlock my screen and tap the jailbreak icon. But there is no icon at all. I’ve tried it several times, different download mirrors, always the same result – no icon to tap on. Did anybody find a solution to fix the problem?
