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.)

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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 ..

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.

is your device ipad 2 wifi model?

(26 Dec '13, 09:42) ipad704 ipad704'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

King Shoot

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?

I re-jail broke, after storing via iTunes, then restoring through iCloud, and I have the infinite loop again.
