Hi, whenever I download the evasi0n file from the Mega website it will continuously open in Microsoft word and the icon will be a word document icon but it'll have zip at the end of the file. I can't seem to extract anything and that is the step I am stuck at.

Try right clicking on the zip archive and select open with. Then choose the program you use to extract zip files. If you have none I recommend winrar.

I would just download winrar and use that to open zips. you can remove it when your done. Unless you dont want to that is

  1. Make sure you download evasi0n from here;
  2. You may have a wrong program/file association set on your computer (zip files set to be opened by MS-Word);
  3. Assuming you're under Windows, right click the evasi0n file and choose open with then pick your zip/rar program;
  4. Once unzip, right-click and choose run as administrator.
