Jailbreak

Once you've confirmed that your device meets these requirements (most of which will) it is time to get on with the jailbreak process. It will take no more than a few minutes!

1. The first step is to download the Evasi0n tool from their official website

2. Once that is completed, you should get a .ZIP file to where ever you saved it. Locate it and an unzip the file by right-clicking on it and clicking EXTRACT.

3. In the folder, you should find a few files. The only one that is important for the process is Evasi0n.exe. Double-click on it to launch.

4. Next plug in your iDevice (if you haven't already) and hit the jailbreak button. Now your device should go through a couple of unconventional stages in which the screen may go black and an Apple logo may appear. It is important not to touch your device during this part even though it may be tempting.

5. Eventually you should be faced with a screen like this.

6. Follow the instructions on screen. Unlock your device and if you go to your last available page and locate an app labeled jailbreak. Tap it exactly ONCE. Whatever your device does from here is normal and you should find yourself back at the home screen.

7. Next you can go back in your device and the 'jailbreak' app should be gone, but replaced by an app called 'Cydia.' Congrats, this means your jailbreak has been successfully completed.

8. Open up Cydia and it will lead you through a couple prompts. When your choosing your user type, developer is usually the best way to go as it allows you access to all parts of Cydia. If you do choose developer, make sure you have a good understanding of your what your doing otherwise stick to user if your fairly new. Next it should prompt you to upgrade. Do so by clicking the 'Complete' option. Cydia should ask to respring after and you should be set!
