Step 6: Once the process is complete, you will get a message informing you to unlock your iPhone. Do not close the evasi0n application. Unlock your iOS device and then tap on the Jailbreak app (the one with the evasi0n icon).
Step 7: When you launch the evasi0n app, the screen will go black for a second and exit. Don’t worry, this will start the next stage of the jailbreak process.
Step 8: Once it is done, it will give a message informing you that the “Jailbreak complete! The device may restart a few times as it completes the process”.
Step 9: The rest of the jailbreak process will now take place on your iOS device. After you iPhone reboots, you will see a large evasi0n logo with messages informing you on the status of the jailbreak process.
