Step 4 – Connect your phone to your computer. Copy the files to either your internal or external storage units, and remember where you copied them.

Step 5 – Disconnect your phone.

Step 6 – Reboot your phone to Custom Recovery mode. To do this on the Optimus G Pro, you need to press and hold the Volume Up button and the Power button at the same time. When it is done and you see the boot screen, navigate with the Volume buttons and select with the Power button. Select recovery mode.

Requirements:                                                                                                                         

You don’t have to have an over the top lineup of computers or system software for this procedure. A simple desktop or laptop will do the trick. A windows PC with Windows XP SP3 and above or else Mac OS X 10.6 and above will do the trick. If you have a Linux PC, then any Linux version with support for x86/x64 will do. Just make sure you have iTunes installed on your Windows PC for backing up your phone just in case. Also make sure that you have iOS version 7.0 upto 7.0.4 on your iPhone, iPad or iPod (yes, it is for your iPod too. We love giving good news this new year.)

Follow the simple steps to jailbreak  iOS 7 devices

Steps:

  1. Now coming to the actual steps to finally jailbreak your device. But before that again, you need to complete certain steps as a precautionary activity.
  2. First of get a complete backup of your device using iCloud or iTunes whichever is applicable to you. This is just in case if something goes wrong in the jalbreaking process, you can always restore back to the original version and not lose anything.
  3. Secondly disable the lock password of your device. In case of the iPhone 5S, disable the fingerprint scanner lock and for other the simple lock. This is just a precaution because with the passcode on, it causes some error issues and so the jailbreak does not perform properly giving many errors later.
  4. After everything is done, just run the evasi0n software that you have downloaded and let it do the rest. You can till then relax for some time.
  5. Maybe get a change without your phone on you and explore the world how your life is without your iPhone.
  6. At the end of the process, it is done. Your iPhone has been jailbreak and now you can enjoy with your phone as much as you want without any hindrance.
  7. If for some reason your jailbreak process gets interrupted or does not complete, you can simple restart the entire process and let it continue again.
  8. If you feel like rebooting your device, then even that can be done by holding the power and home button at the same time.
  9. If your phone has received an OTA update after the 7.0.4 update then that actually causes a lot of issues with the jailbreak and it does not work. So for that reason if you have received an OTA update, then first using iTunes, revert your device back to the earlier 7.0.4 version and then perform jailbreak for that. Work is under progress to jailbreak even the further version updates.

So finally after you have jailbreak you Apple device, do comment down below an let us know what you feel about the jailbreak iOS 7 and what you are planning to do with it or have done with it.
