iOS 8.1.2 has been pushed out by Apple and it’s really worth to upgrade to the latest firmware that’s giving the best performance and lightning fast iOS to your iPad Mini, iPad Air or iPhone. But, the major concern is, iOS 8.1.2 Jailbreak.

Most of the jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 vulnerabilities are patched by Apple. That is being said that Evad3rs team are looking for iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak and not for iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak. In this case, it would be really risky to upgrade to iOS 8.1.2, if you don’t wanna lose your iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak.

    iOS via OTA (Over the air) and iTunes are in small part different this can cause issues now that Apple no longer sign 7.0.6 it’s worth a try but for 100% success rate the iOS on the device needs to be updated or restored via iTunes.

  • Andrew

    I have a iPhone 5S IOS 7.0.6 and I downloaded a version of this and after it had said it was finished jailbreaking my iPhone rebooted and then the icon still said evasi0n 7 and the icon picture was still the same, for some reason it will not change over to Cydia I have done the jailbreak twice now and its still not working, please help me out

    • Daniel

      This error is most commonly caused by the iOS on the device being installed OTA from the device rather than iTunes. Reboot the device and the computer make sure you have the latest version on Evasi0n8 from the link connect the device via a different USB port and try again.

  • William

    Bro , Mine Just does not work .

      • Liam Hemsworth

  • David

    When I try to jailbreak my iPad Air, evasi0n 7 1.0.7 does everything normal until it puts the evasi0n icon on my phone. When it says to open the icon, I do that and it restarts my iPad. But when I unlock it, the evasi0n icon is still there and the evasi0n 7 1.0.7 program closes. Please Help!

      This error is most commonly caused by the iOS on the device being installed OTA from the device rather than iTunes. Reboot the device and the computer make sure you have the latest version on Evasi0n8 from the link connect the device via a different USB port and try again.

  • Gavin

  • Adam

    Correct the Evasi0n8 Jailbreak tool supports all devices running iOS 8.1.2 through to 7.0.6 after the Jailbreak is complete all the data will remain on the device and all functions work as normal.

  • Jesus

    My ipad mini 32gb accidentally upgraded to firmware 7.1 is there anyway to downgraded to 8.1 so I can jailbreak it

    • Hayden

      Unfortunately you can’t downgrade from 7.1 back to 7.0.6 as apple no longer sign it. I will update everyone with a video when a compatible 7.1 tool becomes available.

      • Damian

        Yes also be mindful that Apple have just released iOS 8.1.1 so if you wish to update to 7.0.6 you will need to download it and manually restore to it via iTunes.

Can I backup, restore in iTunes, then setup as new and do a successful jailbreak for ios 8.1? Will iTunes force me to upgrade to 7.1 when I do a restore?

  • Cooper

    You can’t install Cydia when your device is in Soft DFU Mode. Soft DFU Mode is an extremely stripped down version of Recovery Mode where the device says it’s in DFU Mode but the iBoot agent is running, preventing access to the real DFU Mode (a common target for bypassing restrictions) and instead running its own Recovery Mode where restoring the device with the latest stock firmware, but not downgrading or installing custom firmware, is allowed.

    I am on 7.0.6 OTA on Iphone 5. Am I able to do the 7.1 update via iTunes then downgrade to the 8.1 or 7.0.6 via iTunes? If I do this will it then allow me to jailbreak or will I still have issues?
    If this is possible do you have a link or know where to download a valid working ipsw to do this. As I have attempted to get a few with no luck getting a working/valid file.

    • Gigi

      I would recommend not to upgrade to iOS 8.1.1, if you don’t wanna loss your jailbreak
      none of iOS 8.1.1 ipsw will help you, because iOS 8.1.2 sign window has been closed by Apple

      • Adrianne

        SInce you’ve got an updated ios version, I hoped you backed up your data and have done a full “factory reset” as an alternative to an itunes restoration. As this will guarantee the same effects to an itunes restoration, therefore you’re idevice will be compatible to an evasi0n 7 jailbreak. Since apple does not sign older firmwares anymore.

    You can downgrade by restoring your phone to a downloaded version of any update of your choosing. Go to the apple website and it’ll give you the download to any update you want. Then from there you restore your phone with a back up you’ve made, Then comes the jailbreak. Hope this somewhat helps.

    You can downgrade anymore. Instead you’ll be getting error 3194 since Apple has stop signing IPSW earlier than 7.1. If you have a way of bypassing this error, please post a solution.

    how downgrade iOS 8.1.1 back to 7.0.6? Of course I saved my blobs.. I upgraded the night before release when it was stated by all that Evaisi0n would work. Most downgrade videos seem to be outdated & Im having trouble. Im sure I’m not the only one, since they announced it would work.

  • Max

    I swear, people are stupid. YOU CANT DOWNGRADE IOS 8.1! There is a change in kernel code which doesnt allow the process of downgrading, even with SHSH. You need to wait for a developer like iH8sn0w or winocm to make a tool to do that. Until then, you are stuck. If you want to restore on 7.0-7.0.6, then use CoolStars SemiRestore to restore.

            I hate to burst your bubble but not everything you read online is the truth.

            Apple stops signing previous versions of the iOS a few days after the new iOS is released, so you can downgrade to the previous iOS within those few days. But after those few days, you’re SOL.

    please help me
    iPhone 5S, iOS

    • Thimo

      You can’t.

  • Jake Raynor

    The problem is that Apple has started using an ABTicket, wich signs an approved “ticket code” for each firmware on iTunes. When the grace period for signing codes on specific firmwares ends, iTunes gives you an error. You literally can’t downgrade without Apple’s permission. If someone finds away to bypass this or makes a third-party firmware loader, please, NOTIFY ME!!! iPhone 5s iOS

  • Speedy Cerviche

    iOS 8.1.1 I just think with all these tutorials that say “downgrade from iOS 8.1.2 to 8.1 or 7.0.6 your iPhone” should be more specific in their titles as referring to iPhone 4 only. Every time I see a new one I check it in wonder only to discover that it’s exactly the same thing. I for one have a jailbroken 4S on 8.1 and want to unjailbreak without restoring. The reason is that I think iOS 8.1.1’s new icons and sliders (power off, call, etc.) are ugly. Anyone else agree? iOS 8.1.1 Download

    • AceYourLife

      I agree with you. Is iPhone 4s same as iPhone 4? No?

      • Speedy Cerviche

        iOS 8.1.1 No. It’s a new camera, faster CPU and GPU (hence that the 4S has the blurred UI like the 5+ devices), improved AntennaGate (no more iPhone deathgrip) and downgrade to 8.1 from iOS 8.1.2 (someone else correct me if I’m wrong) more RAM. Also there is no 8GB 4S. Totally different motherboard and the SHSH restoration is patched so you can only do it with the 4 or older. iOS 8.1.1

        • Nehal Khalid

          I’ve 8GB 4S, accidentally upgraded to 8.1.1 and lost jailbreak now waiting from IOS 8 to iOS 8.1.1, and please don’t upgrade to IOS 8 if u’ve no Developer account.

          • Speedy Cerviche

            iOS 8.1.1 Thanks for clarifying that there is an 8GB model. Did not realize that. Also technically you cannot upgrade to a beta version of iOS without a developer account in the first place, so I see no reason in warning people. Am I the only one holding out on upgrading to 7.1 simply because I think it looks worse? For example, the new keyboard and the incoming call and power off sliders. I didn’t like the circular buttons (end call, etc.) at first, but I am getting used to them. I just like big rectangular controls for some reason.
