    I downloaded Evasion, went through the jailbreak process. Phone reboots after that I get a message saying modifying roofs or something near that and then it closes. It stops there, it doesn't say done. The evasion app is on my phone. I tried restarting and nothing change. The app is white and blank when I click it. What can be wrong. I've tried doing it three times. Some thing happens.

    Type this in the safari URL and press enter.

    cydia://

    If you are in fact successfully jailbroken it should open the cydia app.

    Okay. I'll try it. It never said done so I'm thinking it may not. Brb.

    It says it cannot be displayed. :(. Is evasion the only jail breaking option for 7.0.4. Is redsnow an option?

    Evasion 7 is your only option. If you can't run the evasion 7 tool successfully, you could try a factory reset and give it another go. However, you risk having to restore to a non jail breakable firmware if your phone fails to boot.

    no. if there was, it would be patched really fast. for example, jailbreakme 2.0 was patched in just 9 days with iOS 4.0.2!

    the security risk of OTA jailbreaks are much more significant than a USB based one

    If you restore from a backup they get copied back. Only iMessages if from an iCloud backup but I think all text messages if restored from a backup on a computer, but i'm not sure. I'll need confirmation.

    I believe the issue is that you did an OTA update from iOS 6 to iOS 7.
    I had the same issue when I attempted to jail break my iPhone 4 that was updated to iOS 7 OTA.

    The solution was to restore the iPhone through iTunes on your computer. Since iOS 7.1 (Not jailbreakable) is out already.That solution is no longer available to you. My guess is that you won't be able to jailbreak your iPhone until the next jailbreak is released.

    Try to jailbreak again. If you're lucky the evasi0n application doesn't recognize the phone as being jailbroken. And if you're really lucky it does it right this time around. I'd use another computer as well.

    I didn't update my iTunes although it keeps asking. So is that a good thing? I'm going to try using my moms computer for the jailbreak (if she remembers her admin password, which is another issue in itself.) Weird thing is my first jailbreak was flawless, but it was two days old and never did an OTA upgrade. So is restoring pointless still if my iTunes isn't updated?

    Do not restore via itunes as itunes will ONLY restore with ios 7.1
    If you try a restore, you will have zero opportunity to jailbreak

    edit:
    What iphone do you have? The above statement would not hold true with an iphone 4 as those do offer options. iphone 5 and newer, no options if you restore

    I don't think there's anything out yet that allows for custom restores on 7.x for the iPhone 4

    This is what happens when you update your device over the air. There's nothing you can do now to jb it successfully.

    Okie doke. Ok so I'll just update it via iTunes and wait for the new jailbreak. So for the future I will update via my laptop.

    I jailbreaked my iPad mini on 7.0.4 just now, so I tried again thinking it would work on the iphone. No avail. I believe I did OTA upgrades on the iPad. Thought I would share.

    Yea, you're out of luck if evasi0n doesn't jailbreak your OTA updated device
