If you tap "Update" in the App Store and the app opens instead of updating, this is an Apple bug instead of anything related to your jailbreak.

Is evasion 100% safe to download on my computer and will it give me any viruses? Also for the ios6.1.2 jailbreak does this work on any windows computer?

Evasi0n shall NOT do ANY harm to your computer.

iOS (6.x or any version) will run on iOS devices, iPods, iPads and iPhones, but NOT on a windows computer.

Here are the steps you want to follow:

  1. Download and install on your computer latest version of iTunes;
  2. Download and install on your computer latest version of evasi0n;
  3. Plug your iDevice to your computer, let iTunes backup sync and update;
  4. Under Windows, temporary disable any AntiVirus/FireWall you might be running;
  5. Disable the lock password of your iDevice if you have one;
  6. Disable your iTunes' backup password if you have one;
  7. Under Windows, run evasi0n as admin (right-click and choose Run as Administrator);
  8. Let it do it's things and follow the instructions;
  9. Follow the further instructions on your iDevice until the process completes.
  10. Restore your backup from iTunes;
  11. Start using Cydia and enjoy your newly JB iDevice.
