The jailbreak will work for all of the following devices:

  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4S
  • iPhone 5
  • iPad 2
  • iPad 3
  • iPad 4
  • iPad mini
  • iPod touch 4th generation
  • iPod touch 5th generation

Before you apply the jailbreak, it’s worth taking advantage of some apt advice from the jailbreak team:

Backup your iOS device using iTunes or iCloud before using evasi0n. This way you are sure to never lose any data if something wrong happens.

Please disable the lock passcode of your iOS device before using evasi0n. It can cause issues.

Be patient while the jailbreaking process is running, don’t start iTunesor Xcode in the meanwhile. The best is to not touch the computer until the end of the jailbreaking process.

This is an UNTETHERED jailbreak, which means you won’t have to re-apply the exploit after restarting your device, If you’re ready to get started, head on over to the evasi0n website and download the jailbreak app now!
