I was trying to jailbreak my iPad 4 but the in the last step I think when it is saying ''lock up device to continue'' then the Evasi0n jailbreaking program crashed and when I am unlocking my iPad 4 and look if I have cydia it is just Evasi0n 7 icon. Can someone pls help me with this problem? :)

There's no no help I'm afraid it sounds like you updated ios firmware using settings on device. OTA . If you hit evadi0n icon snd nothing happens then you must have.

Not jsilbreak for you I'm sorry'll have to wait for the next jailbreak to be released.

ALWAYS update ios firmware by connecting to PC and uding restore in itunes

It is supported but evasi0n can't tell if you updated via settings on device or via itunes until you run it and it fails.

Yours failed novjailbreak for you as you DID OTA update ios firmware by going to settings... updates. Evasi0n fails 99.9% of time on OTA updates and there's NOTHING. You can do to fix it.
