It seems that OS X 10.5.8 won't run evasi0n. It keeps quitting before it has a chance to open. Help?

Not yet. Not sure why no one has noticed this? Btw you have a MacBook Pro don't you? Maybe it's just a device and OS X together causing this...just a guess.

Same problem here on MacBook Air1,1 running OS X 10.5.8 (and no need to comment on not upgrading..this machine operates best on this os-I've tried them all). Any solutions yet??!! This sucks!!!! I'm literally about to leave to my parents house to use their newer iMac, they live 45 miles away lol!

You have to enter as guest on your Osx. Then download evasi0n, mount it.. and it runs!

I had the same problem, but as 'fuoridalgregge' said, you just have to login as guest and mount evasi0n. Drag evasi0n.app to desktop, and double click it. It won't crash, and it will work just fine :)

According to the evad3rs, the newest version of evasi0n (version 1.3) should fix issues with OS X 10.5.8. You can download it here, like the earlier versions: http://evasi0n.com/
