Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

evasi0n7 can jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 untethered. p0sixspwn can jailbreak iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5 untethered (see here for 6.1.6).
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.

hi, I have Updated my Ipad with iOS 7.0.4 via OTa and as it was a jailbroken device it got stuck in recovery mode.

Then I put my ipad in DFU and Restored using the fresh iOS7.0.4. When I attempted jailbreak using evasi0n7 ( 1.0.1 ), it got stuck in the reboot loop after jailbreak.

I also reattempted the restore and jailbreak, but nothing worked.

Is there a way to restore and jailbreak it properly?

As stated in the evasion website,

If you did a OTA update then you are likely to get a boot loop.

If your on iPad 2, there are some problems with the jailbreak so don't attempt it or you'll get a boot loop.

I have been having the same problem with my iphone 4s on the evasi0n 7 1.0.4, and all of you are saying it it works if you do this and that, but I want to know how to fix it, not how to prevent it. please understand I dont mean hate.

Jailbreak fails on 7.0.4 but you can update further to 7.1 beta 1 and jailbreak fine

see my thread:

It doesn't "fail" because of 7.0.4

It fails because evasion 7 isn't working with iPad 2 At the moment

Hmmm, i got the Looping issue whilst jailbreaking 7.0.4 with evasion 7 but after installing 7.1 beta 1, Evasion 7 worked fine (on ipad 2 wifi)

Yes, the evasi0n7.0.2 works on ipad2 wifi. Still there are so many tweaks which are not compatible with iOS7, some are are discotinued development and will never work on the new OS. :(
