I had the same problem initially but the following steps got me working:

  1. Check and make sure that everything on your computers end is detecting the iPhone. On Windows, go to your device manager and make sure that "Apple Mobile Device USB Driver" is showing up under the USB controllers section. If not, go to and see if any of those solutions work.
  2. Install iTunes. Initially, I didn't have iTunes installed but my computer was detecting the device just fine. I ran evasi0n but it still wasn't showing up. Installed iTunes, and another driver was installed. Reopened evasi0n and was able to jailbreak successfully!

Give those a try! Good luck :)

Try unplugging your device and restart the computer. Once it restarts, run evasi0n and plug your device back in and follow prompts.

I had the same problem. I was on Windows 8, tried windows 7 and it worked!

Good luck!

P.S. Yes you need iTunes for it to work as it has all the drivers for your phone ;)
