How to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad running iOS 7.0.4 with evasi0n 7
evasi0n 7 has recently been updated with many fixes to both the jailbreak itself and to Cydia, which solve a lot of the concerns that kept us from recommending it until now. If you've been waiting patiently to jailbreak iOS 7.0.4, we can walk you through the entire process from start to finish. Here's everything you need to know!
evasi0n 7 compatibility
The evasi0n 7 version 1.0.4 jailbreak is compatible with all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models running iOS 7.0 thru iOS 7.0.4 including the iPhone 5s, iPad mini with Retina display, iPhone 5, and any other device capable of running iOS 7.
Back up your iPhone or iPad
As always, make sure you backup your iPhone or iPad before attempting to jailbreak. Also, make sure you have updated to iOS 7.0.4 via iTunes and not over-the-air. This is mainly because OTA updates have been known to cause issues with the jailbreak process itself, so be sure you restore or update via iTunes before continuing.
How to jailbreak iOS 7.0.4 with evasi0n 7 version 1.0.4
- Back up your iPhone or iPad. Always do this before attempting to jailbreak.
- Download the evasi0n jailbreak tool: Download for Mac, Download for PC
- Plug your iPhone or iPad into your computer.
- Launch evasi0n on your Mac or PC. If you're on a Mac running Mountain Lion or Mavericks, you may have to right click the evasi0n jailbreak tool and click Open and confirm you'd like to open it.
- Click Jailbreak and then wait.
- After a few seconds, you'll see a message asking you to unlock your iPhone or iPad and tap on the evasi0n7 icon. Do that now.
- You may be asked to unlock your device one more time if you have a passcode.
- evasi0n should now give you a message that your device was successfully jailbroken and the process is done. Just click Exit on your computer.
- Your device may reboot a few more times in order to complete the process and that's it! You should now have Cydia on your iPhone or iPad once more.
Once the jailbreak is complete, you'll want to pop into Cydia in order to update it. the filesystem will automatically update on its own but there may be other updates you need to install. Other than that, you're good to go!

"Please disable the lock passcode of your iOS device before using evasi0n. It can cause issues."
and use any other service from apple?
-Browser Changer (lets me use Chrome and Google Maps by default)
-FlipControlCenter (customizable CC toggles, including the bottom row)
-BiteSMS (the latest beta works just fine - only minor features are left out for now) There you have it, the only reasons why I jailbroke. Many tweaks have a strong appeal to them, but from experience I also know that the more you pile them up the slower your phone gets (and the shorter the battery life, which is scary enough on an iPhone). No themes for me, no minor tweaks. Iphone 4s here, no slowdowns (to the contrary - I was on 6.1.3 before I jailbroke and my phone seems smoother now). Battery life is shorter, though.
-Like anything else in life, overindulging is sin. Piling up tweaks and themes WILL slow down the system and clog the battery life. You'll have to pick your battles. It's just common sense. If you just look for a few tweaks to make your life easier, it's just fine.
-Make sure you keep your 5s JB in order: a good portion of tweaks arent yet compatible with the A7 processor, despite the jailbreak foundation being compatible. That'll come gradually. So read the Cydia description before installing them.
I tried this method on my iPhone. Unfortunately, after some rebooting my device got stuck with apple icon and does not work. any suggestion to solve the problem is appreciated.

jailbreak exits at modifying roots process.
NO CYDIA even after jailbreak!!
the problem is that, jailbreak isn't completed one, it stops at modifying roots process.
i hope someone knows the solution.
