The iOS 7 jailbreak tool is now available from the Evad3rs bringing a new method that runs on iOS 7 through iOS 7.0.4 and the Gotta Be Mobile team is ready to show you how to jailbreak iOS 7 with the latest version of evasi0n.

The iOS 7 jailbreak is free to download for Windows and Mac and works on any device running iOS 7, including the iPhone 5s, iPad mini Retina and the new iPad Air.

Using the iOS 7 jailbreak is fairly straightforward, but users who are new to the process will get a step by step guide that includes photos and tips on how to avoid common iOS 7 jailbreak problems.

Keep in mind jailbreaking iOS 7 is not for everyone. We share a list of five reasons to skip the iOS 7 jailbreak for now, which we recommend reading before you take the plunge.

The following guide to the iOS 7 jailbreak will walk you through the process of jailbreaking from the first steps to the last with tips on how to enjoy the most seamless process. Some of the steps may seem pointless, but we recommend following each one in order to avoid any issues. It will take a little while to complete, but it is worth making sure you do it right.

Step 1. Back up the iPhone or iPad to iCloud or iTunes. We prefer a local backup, but either one will work. Make sure the backup completes before continuing. If you use a password on your iTunes backup turn this off and make a new backup before jailbreaking.

  1. Plug in to iTunes
  2. Click Restore
  3. Click OK when prompted
  4. Click Agree when prompted
  5. Wait for the software to download and install.

If the iOS 7 jailbreak tool freezes or runs into an issue, you can reboot the device by holding the home and power button until it reboots. Once it reboots you can start the jailbreak over.

Wait as the device reboots and performs other actions.

Step 6. When prompted unlock the iPhone or iPad and tap the jailbreak button on the iOS device. Do not unplug the device and do not try tapping the app multiple times. One tap should launch a white screen and then reboot the iPhone or iPad.

When the jailbreak completes click exit.

    This is real and is on their official twitter account. It says this on their website: “If you get an error on OS X 10.8/10.9 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.”
