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.x is not jailbreakable, except an unsupported tethered iPhone 4 jailbreak.
Restoring or updating will update your device to iOS 7.1.1 and remove your jailbreak. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 7.1.x to 7.0.x.

Either your timing is off, or your home button is broken.

looks like they got it working anyway.

OP, why accept the answer if it didn't work?

(13 Mar '11, 17:19) venusanann ♦ venusanann's gravatar image

OP accepted the answer after saying it didn't work, I assume they tried again and it did. ;)

watch some vids on youtube, some are really helpfull sometimes the countdown of GP isn't correct so sometimes you need to hold it a bit longer or shorter. if your idevice show a total white screen it is in dfu mode and the JB process is starting

iOS 4.X offers a black DFU mode, which often appears to be off... Make sure you've got iTunesHelper.exe closed.
