How to fix some mysterious problems.


So I downloaded evasion and started it up. Hooked my iPad mini (6.0.1) in and nothing happens. It doesn't seem to realize I have it plugged it. My computer recognizes it, but evasion just sat there for 10 minutes doing nothing. The box [Jailbreak] stayed grey and I could not click it. Any idea on what I could do to fix this?

Hey, be sure to have closed all other programs when you open and run the jailbreak program. Does your iPad show up in iTunes?

If that doesn't solve it, google putting an iPad mini (or iPad- it's probably very similar), do that so that the iTunes logo shows up, then try plugging it in, closing iTunes on your computer, opening and running the JB software.

Hope this kind of helps! Try the above first. If you still have no luck, contact us again + we'll try and dig deeper in to helping you :-)

Your device is to be set with NO password for evasi0n to be able to JB.

Else, the JB button will remains greyed.

Hope this helps,
