Jailbreak Your iOS 7.1 Beta 5 Device With Evasi0n7 1.0.5
Team Evad3rs updated their iOS 7 jailbreak tool, Evasi0n7, to version 1.0.4 last month. Since then, Apple released the fourth (and not long after, the fifth) beta versions of iOS 7.1 which, as we previously reported, fixed the vulnerabilities exploited by Team Evad3rs’ Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool. Even though the code sign bug that was used by the Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool was still included in the fourth and the fifth iOS 7.1 betas, the kernel exploit was patched. yesterday Team Evad3rs responded with a new version of its Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool which can now jailbreak iOS devices updated to the latest iOS 7.1 beta version. The Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool supports Apple iPhone 5S, iPad Air, iPad Mini and all the other iOS devices running iOS 7.
As we mentioned above, while the kernel exploit was patched in the fourth iOS 7.1 beta, the code sign bug is still included in the fourth and fifth iOS 7.1 betas so this latest version of the Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool still manages to jailbreak devices using the latest iOS 7.1 beta. The change log for version 1.0.5 of the Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool indicates that it has been updated to support all iDevices running the fifth iOS 7.1 beta version. However, since we recently reported that the latest rumors suggest the final version of iOS 7.1 is very likely to be released next month, this may be the latest version that could be jailbroken, especially since the last two betas (beta 4 and beta 5) patched most of the exploits used by the Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool.

If you don’t save to a back up device, at least use iCloud. If you have been updating your iOS device via Over the Air (also known as OTA) updates, then Team Evad3rs suggests that you restore your iOS device using iTunes before attempting to jailbreak it using the Evasi0n7 tool.
After doing all the above preparatory steps, you are ready to start the jailbreak process.

How to jailbreak your iOS 7.1 device using Evasi0n7 1.0.5 on Mac OS X
During the first step, you will have to back up your device. You can use iTunes or iCloud to back up your iPhone or iPad. As we mentioned above, you will also have to turn off your pass-code lock until the backup and jailbreak procedures are completed.
During this step you will have to download the latest version of the Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool for Mac. Here is the download link.
After downloading the package from the official Evasi0n7 website, unzip it in a location on your computer (we recommend on the desktop). Then open the DMG file and drag the Evasi0n 7 app to your applications folder.
After dragging the Evasi0n7 tool to your apps folder, you will have to open it. Please note that if Mac OSX does not let you open the Evasi0n app, you will have to right click on the Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool and then select open from the menu, or change your Mac OSX security settings.
After opening the Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool, you will have to connect your device running the latest iOS 7.1 beta to your computer by way of the original USB cable.
Once your iOS 7.1 device is connected to your computer and version 1.0.5 of the Evasi0n7 jailbreak tool is running, it will auto detect your iDevice. After the latest version of Evasi0n7 auto detects yor iDevice, simply press the jailbreak button. The jailbreak process is the same for all iOS 7.x devices.
The jailbreak process should now begin and it will take around three or four minutes, so wait patiently for it to finish. During the jailbreak process your iOS 7.1 device will reboot a few times; that is normal so don’t worry about it. All you have to do is follow the instructions displayed on your device’s screen and you will be able to complete the Evasi0n7 jailbreak procedure without any problems.
Important: if your iOS 7.1 device gets stuck in a loop during the Evasi0n7 jailbreak procedure, do not panic.
