How to jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 (and fix problems). iOS 7.1 is not jailbreakable, except an unsupported tethered iPhone 4 jailbreak.
Restoring or updating will update your device to iOS 7.1 and remove your jailbreak. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 7.1 to 7.0.x.

Hello,

Whenever I try to install the evasion 7 jailbreak on my iPhone 5S 16GB, I get "Error communicating with the attached device. Try replugging it. (e=-5)".

I tried to format it, to change USB port and ran the launcher several times, no change.

What can I do ?

Thanks.

Do you have iTunes installed?

Yes justinred, I do have iTunes installed. Is that the problem ?

You need iTunes installed. Does iTunes recognize the device?

I am also having the same issue. The Installer said it had finished, but iPhone was stuck on boot logo. Now it is stuck in recovery mode and will not restore with iTunes: Error 17.

Firstly connect with WiFi, Not use the Cellular network!! Secondly Install the ITunes software, if you really have ! update it at the latest version. for best result( delete it from your Pc and reinstall it again from the official web site )
