Evasi0n shall NOT do ANY harm to your computer.

  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.
