Owning an iPhone or any Apple device is certainly a reason to be very happy, since not only are they some of the most sophisticated gadgets around, but at the same time they have an impressive operating system that makes using them a breeze. However, some of you, including myself, want to have the ability of customize our device so that it fully meets our personal needs. But guess what? Apple doesn’t allow you to do that at all! Of all the things Apple, this is just the worst! But hey, chin up Buttercup, since using this ios 7 jailbreak and cydia install guide you’ll finally be able to take advantage of the full functionality of your phone.
Jailbreaking your device with Evasi0n
This is a method that a lot of people are using to jailbreak their device since it’s simple and easy to use. So what you have to do is go to Evasi0n.com and then select the OS you’re currently using on your machine (you have 2 choices, including OS X and Windows). Next, just click on “Download Evasi0n” and wait for the download to complete. Open the downloaded archive and then double click on “Evasi0n”. Click on “Jailbreak” and then wait for it to complete. When that’s done, you have to unlock your device and then open the “Evasi0n” app. And that’s it! You have successfully managed to jailbreak your device!
Installing Cydia on your device is simple and the good news is that most of the times the tool that you used for jailbreaking your device will actually contain Cydia as well. In some cases though (very rare ones to be honest) you may need to install Cydia separately. If that’s what you’re dealing with now, then let me tell you how you can do that.
First if all, you need to get the “Evasi0n tool” from downloadevasion.org, since that is where you’re going to find the latest version of this tool. Follow the onscreen instructions in order to successfully install it. After that’s done, all you need to do is consider opening Evasi0n while having Administrator rights.
Preparing iOS for Evasi0n
At this point you need to connect your device to your laptop via the USB cable, run iTunes and then make sure to put your device in DFU mode. Next, hold the “Home” and “Power” button on your handset for ten seconds and then release the “Power” button, but keep holding the “Home” button until you’ll notice that iTunes has displayed a recovery message. When prompted to restore your device, do so and run Evasi0n. The program will continue to do install and when you’ll see the Cydia icon on your phone, that’s when you know it has finally finished installing it.
Jailbreaking your iPhone and installing Cydia these days is basically a 2 in 1 deal, because most jailbreaking tools also install Cydia by default. Therefore, by jailbreaking your phone, you will also, in most cases, get to have Cydia installed on it automatically. Enjoy using your phone and personalizing it to better fit your needs!
