I downloaded EvasiOn and clicked on jailbreak. Things went smoothly, but after finishing jailbreak, device restarted and it came to screen of "Patching kernel". It's not going ahead as i can't see any movement. Please suggest.

same for me.

iPhone 5 on 6.1

It's been around 15 mins so far. Is it supposed to take this long?

If the text stops blinking during one of the steps on the device (on the white screen), you can either wait for evasi0n to automatically reboot the device (approximately 10 minutes) or do a hard reboot yourself (by holding down the lock/sleep button and home button at the same time). Your device should boot up jailbroken the second time.

You've written two answers on this site, and they both contained links to the same blog. Obviously it's yours, or you're trying to drive traffic to it. Do it somewhere else, please.
