You'll get far more help if you more accurately name your problem. "Stuck at configuring 2/2" would get far more viewers that can help than "jailbreak" will.

I am having the same exact problem with mine..Have you tried restoring your phone via itunes yet?

I had the same problem, but be patient! After about 35 minutes I was about to cancel the jailbreak, but it completed just as I was about to kill it. The jb went through fine but took a very long time to get past "configuring system (2/2)!

So does this actually work then waiting 35 minutes? I have waited about that time but still nothing happened. I feel that the program crashes because i have to close the program with task manager as nothing happens when i press the X button

had thesame problem... this did the trick... "For those who got stuck at Configuring system (2/2)on evasi0n7 (Windows), this is how I resolve it: leave the stuck evasi0n7 session on, and open (as administrator) another one, click on jailbreak, after that it should run normally. Follow the steps to jailbreak your iphone. (If you did not see the evasi0n7 icon on your iphone, swipe down and search evasi0n (your iphone will reboot about three times.) Then it will start the JB process. After that, swipe down again and search for Cydia, click on it. That is it. Do not forget to say thanks to the evasi0n creator team. :-) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to ALL"

I also had the same problem. Windows 8.1, iPhone 5, iOS 7.0.4. I tried opening a new Evasi0n when the first stalled on configuring system 2/2 several times (running as administrator) and had different results, but never a completion of the jailbreak. Failed on uploading JB data, injecting Evasi0n app, and configuring system 1/2, 2/2, etc. I've also tried using software downloaded from the 2 different mirror sites, tried different sync cords and USB ports as well. Also restored iPhone clean to 7.0.4 at one point. To no avail, IT HAS NOT WORKED. Suggestions?

@cpinal its better to make your own question rather than hijacking another.

Do you have a lockscreen passcode?

(30 Dec '13, 12:32) Tb3rb Tb3rb's gravatar image

i dont have a lock screen passcode

Sometimes evasi0n 7 gets stuck at 'configuring system (2/2)' if you updated OTA (e.g. updated to iOS 7 without using a computer). You can solve this by plugging your device into iTunes and restoring (from a backup).

i have tried this when evasi0n 7 gets stuck i open it again and it completes the jail break but puts me back at the apple loop / stuck on apple. I have restored through back up and tried it again and the same thing happens
