Just tried to install the iOS 7.X jailbreak and when it said Done, my device (iPhone 5 7.0.4) rebooted and it got stuck on the apple logo. I put the phone into DFU mode and currently restoring it in backup.

What happened?

Same here, 4S 7.0.4. I will restore and try again. If it works, i will replay again. (btw, maybe it has something to do with been updating OTA.)

@King Shoot I havent had any business with jailbreak before, and now I ran into a legit issue so thats why im new here.

(22 Dec '13, 08:13) qwerty1911 qwerty1911's gravatar image

Well, if we try something and it doesn't work, I think it's quite normal if we ask for help. Stuck on Apple logo as well here, guess I'll restore and wait a couple of days for a stabler version.

Can I ask the people on here to make a comment UNLESS THEY ARE ANSWERING THE ORIGINAL QUESTION,as stated when making an answer.

Just be whoever jailbreak is wait until the problem is fixed, nothing else.

(22 Dec '13, 08:16) bulko bulko's gravatar image

The jailbreak is brand new.No one has tested it,so no one can predict what will happen.Best if you wait a day or two,and then redownload

I get the infinite apple logo reboot logo, and the brightness bug with my Retina iPad mini. Worked fine with the iphone5s, but again, it does have the brightness bug.

Jay Freeman tweeted that this was all a 'surprise' that the untethered version was released. And that the version he sent to EvasiOn team (@evad3rs) was not an official version, meaning that he has no idea what parts of the mobilesubstrate work and don't work. I believe there will be some time until the issue is resolved.

If your device gets stuck on the Apple boot logo, and/or just continuously reboots, for the steps in this article to put the device into dfu mode and restore:

Instructions for putting your device into DFU mode: First make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed on your computer, and make sure you've plugged your device directly into your computer (using a USB hub may not work).

With your device connected to your computer, hold the power (lock) button and home button for 10 seconds, then release the power button but keep holding the home button for another 15 seconds.

If you've successfully entered DFU mode, the device screen will be black and iTunes will say it's in recovery.

If you'd rather see a video tutorial, you can go here or here.

same ipad and ios here, same problem, i put the ipad in dfu, recover ios 7.0.4, install evasi0n, and in the end i get infinite reboot

(22 Dec '13, 09:59) diegonob diegonob's gravatar image

I did the restore after the bootloop, and had the same problem. I am restoring from a backup, do I need to restore it as a new device to get this to work?

(22 Dec '13, 10:00) googlefarts googlefarts's gravatar image

If you have updated iOS Over-The-Air (OTA), please restore via iTunes and re-jailbreak again. It SHOULD work.

(22 Dec '13, 10:03) firezzz firezzz's gravatar image

i restore my ipad via itunes, put the ipad 2 in DFU, restore with Option key (alt) and select ios 7.0.4, restore is completed and fine, i configured the ipad like new, them install evasi0n and do all the process with no error, but the ipad is in loop rebooting

OK. So I had the same problem (I had updated OTA), here's what worked for me:

Enter DFU.

Connect to iTunes and restore then log in to iTunes and update your phone to fully restore it.


n.b. If you get the 3194 error in iTunes (I did!) ensure that your hosts file does not visit sites by appending them with the # prefix. Flush the dns cache and try again.

Yeah I tried this 3 times now. I tried both with a backup restore and then jailbreak, and a 'new' restore and jailbreak. Keep getting apple bootloop... giving up until a 2.0 comes out. -- using ipad2 16g wifi on 7.0.4

Attention! Disable passcode. In my case it was the one to create the problem. I got stuck in boot logo because of the passcode. I know it because it was the only deference between a fatal attempt and a successful one. I was stupid and overconfident enough to do not do a back up and I lost my photos.

i tried the restore but itunes gave this error: This device isn’t eligible for the requested build”

(23 Dec '13, 08:04) christianr christianr's gravatar image

here too .. I have the same problem for iPad 2 Wifi ... whenever I restore it to 7.0.4 (Fully restore with iTune) ...

After I jailbreak it .. it stuck on boot apple logo ..

Detail explanation: After the application (Evad3r 7 1.0.0) done with injecting and jailbreaking, it restart the iPad ..

The evad3r Kernel reader appear and read the kernel. However, after calculating the offsets, it restart the iPad and stuck on the boot stage, which keeps restarting infinite times.

The worse is on the infinite restarting, the computer doesn't detect the iPad (which usually when the boot success, the computer detect iPad when its connected to the PC) ...

So what else I did? just made iPad enter DFU mode and restore it to 7.0.4 .. and again doing the same routine until now ..

If you are stuck in reboot loop (apple logo) and have not taken a backup, you can use this solution to resolve the issue without losing your precious data http://bit[dot]ly/1cGK8oF

Same thing man ik it sucks and is a little bit scary. I have never really had an issue with jailbreaking and this happened. Advice to everyone stop Jailbreaking. Yes it makes the phone better but it also can really fuck you over in the long run.

The question has been closed for being "Solved" by spockers, 24 Aug '14, 23:49

If you did an OTA firmware update on your iDevice you will have to put your iDevice in DFU mode and do a restore with iTunes.
