Hello,

Afte using evasi0n, my iPhone 5 (IOS 6.1) is booting with some trouble, then once it's on Cydia won't start, and the Jailbreak Icon is still present. When I try rejailbreak it evasi0n gives me an error saying that "Your Device appears to be using a semi-tethered jailbreak." even though I did not jailbreak it. I tried to restore the phone but it looks like the jailbreak is still there and I cannot revert to the initial status to restart the process.

Anyone has an idea ?

ok I got it. (for windows users) make a new user account on your computer. log in that new windows account and download iTunes for the new account. plug in your iPhone. then iTunes will re-download the 6.1 update on that new user account. plug in your iPhone and do the restore/update. re-download evais0n for that new windows account and run it. voila.
