    Thank you very much once again. One thing I couldn't understand that the link provided say that use itune restore only if the restore on your device fails?

    I have few questions to clarify:

    1) Does restore means to restore the device to it's original os like mine was 6xxx before ota update to 7.0.4..

    2) why not to use the device restore?

    Shall be thankful for further help.

    No, the restore will merely erase your device as if it came fresh out of the box. BUT - it will not put a different iOS on it. Your iPad will still be on iOS 7.0.4.

    You can't use the device restore as there is nothing there. Your device is already on iOS 7.0.4 - so you must use iTunes to put a version on there. If your iOS was on your device because you put it on via the iPad and the over the air function, the jail break will not work. That is why you must use iTunes.

    Lastly - if I may. I join with the others to urge you wait for the jail break to be more stable before doing the jail break yourself. Yes, the tool works well to jail break your iPad. However, nothing on Cydia (the jail breaker's AppStore) has been updated. In fact, Cydia itself has not been updated for iOS 7.

    I believe you will have a much better experience in jail breaking if you wait for the updates to Cydia. We'll update the first post in this thread when that happens.

    Agreed. Unless you know exactly what you're doing and plan on developing or beta testing, the iOS 7 jailbreak is at least 3-4 months too early for decent compatibility if this scenario reflects the iOS 6 timeline.

    If we jailbreak the device now and dont install any tweaks. Wait for the cydia store to update. Then is that fine? At least there wont be any chance Apple might update to 7.1 and we dont have a jailbreak at all. I know its xmas time but who knows they might.

    That's an option. When a new version of Cydia is pushed out, you can update via Terminal command. Supposedly, Saurik is pushing out the new Cydia build update via Cydia. Personally I'd recommend just completely re-installing it via Terminal from scratch to be safe. The iOS X.1.Y builds from history presents us with a fuller more completely version of the iOS, and generally takes a little more time for it to be developed, tested and pushed. I wouldn't expect nothing short of a February release unless they decide to push out 7.1 as a spontaneous hotfix for something.

    Evasi0n7 I have running on an iPhone 5 on 7.1 beta 2. The exploits may be patched in 7.1 beta 3 and on, or with the final release of 7.1, it's still too early to tell at this point, but it most likely won't be as spontaneous as within the week just to patch Evasi0n7.

    Also, a PSA for iPad 2 (Wifi) owners (both the original iPad 2 and the rev. A models). Evasi0n7 1.0.0 is not compatible with the iPad 2 at the moment, but will be fixed with the next build.

    So does that mean iPad 2 CDMA (wifi / 3g via verizon) is compatible?

    Yes. Strictly the Wifi models. It's on and off. Some users report it working, some don't. More non-working than working

    So basically update to IOS 7.0.4 as this is the most recent IOS ( before IOS7,1 comes out and just wait for cydia to work ) ?

    Must the phone / Pad be restored or can I Jailbreak on top of an existing Jailbreak, I.E not lose all stuff on the phone and just use evasion over existing JB ?
