These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, or iPad mini on iOS 7.0 to iOS 7.0.6 (7.1 beta 1 and beta 2 work as well) using Evasi0n for Windows.

Before we begin, please make sure you have no passcode lock on your device (you can add it back after the jailbreak is applied). If you previously updated OTA, you must do a full backup then re-restore.

Step One
Connect your iPad to your computer then perform a manual backup of your iPad using these instructions.


Step Two
Create a folder called Pwnage on your desktop and then download the latest version of evasi0n into the folder. Here are the Evasi0n Download Links. If you have an iPad 2, be sure to use the latest version of evasi0n otherwise you will be stuck in a boot loop!

Additionally, we recommend you download the latest iOS 7.0.6 firmware for your device into the Pwnage folder. The evad3rs suggest a full restore before performing the jailbreak. Here are the iPad Firmware Download Links.

Extract the Evasi0n zip file to the Pwnage folder on your desktop.

what a bunch of crap.. i've always trusted your site before but never again, i'm not coming back here. I just tried to jailbreak my ipad and now i'm stuck in the boot loop... thanks for nothing.. could be a good idea to update your site and tell people to wait. I followed your instructions and downloaded from your links... never again, you lost me.

I just tried this (have jailbroken all my iphones and ipad before) but at the start of the 7.0.6 restore I get the 3194 error, and the screen shows recovery mode, and the connect to itunes pic. How do i get back to 6.1.3 to return my ipad to normal as it was?

You curently can not downgrade/upgrade to any version other than 7.1! if you get a new ipad like i just did, you can still jailbreak. ipad air 4th gen jailbreak was successful

If you have an ipad air 4th gen. do not try this method it will brick your ipad. rather wait till 7.1 is jailbroken. you can restore but it is an absolute hassle if you just heed my warning

What if I update to 7.0.6 from 7.0 OTA, I don't think there should be problem Jailbreaking right? Anyone who tried Jailbreaking their iPad air without restoring? I don't want to really waste time downloading the file, my net is really slow

When I download the Firmware it doesn't save as an ipsw file but as a zip....so when I try to restore firmware using iTunes, it doesn't open the downloaded update since its not seen as an ipsw file. I'm saving the ipad air wifi firmware for Windows
Srin
Srin - March 2, 2014 at 9:28pm
Sorted it by downloading via Firefox....thanks,...works a treat. Keep up the good work

You can rename the file extension from ZIP to IPSW and it should work as well.
