These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPod Touch 5G on iOS 7.0 to 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 iPod touch to your computer then perform a manual backup of your iPod touch 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.

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 iPod touch Firmware Download Links.
