These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, or iPhone 3GS on iOS 6.0 to iOS 6.1.2 using Evasi0n for Mac.



Step One
Ensure your iPhone is on iOS 6.0 to iOS 6.1.2 then perform a backup of your iPhone using these instructions. Firmware download links can be found here if you require them for re-restore.

Step Two
Create a folder called Pwnage on your desktop and download the Evasi0n utility into the folder. You can find download links for Evasi0n here.


Step Three
Double click the Evasi0n dmg file from the Pwnage folder on your desktop to mount it.


Step Four
Drag the Evasi0n application from the mounted dmg into the Pwnage folder on your desktop.


Step Five
Right click (or Control+Click) the Evasi0n app icon then select Open from the contextual menu to launch the application. If prompted to confirm, click the Open button again.




Step Six
Ensure your iPhone is connected to the computer via a USB cable if you haven't already.


Step Seven
Remove any lock screen passcodes on your device then click the Jailbreak button to begin.


Step Eight
The app will retrieve information from the device to generate jailbreak data, inject stage 1 jailbreak data, reboot the device, wait for the device to be ready, inject stage 2 jailbreak data, upload Cydia, and upload the Cydia packages list.




Step Nine
You will then be asked to unlock your device and tap the new 'Jailbreak' app icon. It is imperative that you only tap the icon once. The app will open and immediately close.




Step Ten
Evasi0n will then inject the remount payload, remount the root filesystem, prepare the final jailbreak data, inject the final jailbreak data, and complete!




Step Eleven
Your iPhone will now reboot with Cydia on the SpringBoard!

Thanks for the post.I would like to share my experience in unlocking my iPhone.I wanted to unlock it from the respective locked network but did not want to jailbreak it.As jailbreak makes the user to lose the warranty of the phone.I was also not comfortable in using the available unlocking tools.I searched and found that http://www.rapidunlockers.com/ provides such a permanent unlocking service for iPhone models.They unlock the iPhone through the remote unlock service which would be a better option because,we need not give the mobile to someone else nor do we have any chance to enter the wrong unlock codes.This type of unlocking was very apt for me.I unlocked my mobile and now free to switch networks.

Hi and thankyou for the video review! I have version 6.1 (10B143) on my iPhone and when I try to restore to the downloaded firmware (iPhone5,1_6.1.2_10B146_Restore) then it pops up a warning box that says; The iPhone ****** could not be restored becouse of none compatible firmware. Anyone here who can tell me what is the problem? Thanx.
