The issue is due to the phone being updated via OTA. While the jailbreak may complete on some OTA updated devices, it is strongly recommended to do iTunes restores prior to jailbreaking. These issues occur more frequently when one "cuts corners".

It involves a restore....sorry.......You more than likely updated ios using settings on your device....this is called OTA update and Evasi0n clearly say OTA can cause jailbreak to fail. Install latest itunes on PC. Back up device...... Go to device summary in tunes and choose restore.... The one circled red below. Turn off passcode lock ...........Then run evasion 1.0.6
