    I have JailBroken my iPhone 5 with Evasi0n, and for whatever reason When I plug my iPhone into the computer it crashes iTunes every time, cant even connect to iTunes. I presume this has to do with the JailBreak. I need to do a clean restore of the phone but am unable to even connect the phone via iTunes without it crashing. If anyone can help it would be awesome, THANKS!

    At what point does iTunes crash? What is the error message? Have you tried reinstalling iTunes?

    iTunes crashes as soon as I plug the phone into the PC and iTunes first recognizes it. I have tried to put the phone in DFU mode which is fine it recognized it needed to be restored, downloaded the update and as soon as the phone boots out of DFU mode it crashes iTunes. It must be a jailbreak issue. As I have another iPhone 5 was working fine with the same iTunes and the second I installed Evasi0n jailbreak, when I connect the phone to iTunes crashes.

    No issues, both iPhone and iPad sync with iTunes even OTA. I did get that issue though. In my case, had to uninstall and reinstall iTunes.

    You're phone didn't update to 6.1.3 by any chance?

    So, it must be the PC, The issue PC is a Asus UltraBook with Windows 8, when I plug it in on the HP with Windows 7, iTunes is fine no crashing. So it is an issue with my laptop. I think I will try and uninstall the phone drivers.

    Yep, sounds like an issue with that particular computer.
    My iTunes works fine with my JB i5 without crashing.

    Jailbroken phones can not be discussed here per the terms of service. By jailbreaking you have voided any warranty you had and forfeited your right to support here or from Apple.

    Sorry. You'll have to look elsewhere for assistance.

    The only thing we can suggest is to try putting the phone into DFU mode and restore that way. You can search here or on Google for instructions.

    It may not be possible to return your phone to a working state.

    Ehhh i think you are confusing jailbreaking and piracy.

    Piracy is illegal and against forum rules to discuss.

    Jalibreaking is NOT illegal and this subsectuon is specifically intended to discuss jailbreak and hacks issues.

    The OP is perfectly entitled to discussion and advise here.

    Please educate yourself before posting
