    Welcome to the iPadForums tutorial for jailbreaking your iPad with a 6.0 to 6.1.2 firmware using evasi0n from the evad3rs!

    Preparation
    Download the latest version of the evasi0n tool for your desktop PC OS from the official site here - http://evasi0n.com/
    The minimum requirements for the tool are that you are running Windows XP, Mac OSX 10.5, or Linux.
    And before you go any further, heed the important information... ;)

    • Backup your iPad using either iTunes or iCloud before you start to safeguard your data!
    • Disable the passcode lock on your device before running evasi0n
    • Be patient when the jailbreak is running. Do not start iTunes, xCode, or anything else which could interfere with it.
    • Don't disconnect your device whilst the jailbreak is in progress
    Let's Jailbreak!
    1. Connect your iPad to your PC (close down iTunes if you have it set to auto-start)
    2. Launch the evasi0n tool

    3. Press the "jailbreak" button
    4. Sit back and relax as evasi0n works its magic
    5. When prompted (and only when prompted), unlock the device and press the new evad3rs jailbreak icon once!

    6. Done!

    You should find the new "Cydia" application icon on your springboard at the end of the list of Apps.

    Congratulations - You are now the proud owner of a 6.x Jailbroken Device!
    Now launch Cydia and start exploring the brave new world!

    Next Steps...
    If you are new to jailbreaking, you might like to review our guide to Cydia here - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...ydia-beginners-guide-jailbreak-app-store.html
    And if you install OpenSSH, don't forget to change your default password for added security. See our guide here - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...ides/28213-how-use-secure-shell-ssh-ipad.html
    If you happen to run into compatibility issues with tweaks not working, you will likely discover Safe Mode. Find out more about it here - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...-use-safe-mode-maintain-stable-jailbreak.html

    What device and iOS do you have? Also what OS is installed? And iTunes?

    We can't help without details! ;)

    I need some advice. I've jailbroken both my iPad 3 and iPhone 4 today, successfully. On the iPhone 4, I unintentionally restored my backup from iCloud before jailbreaking and went ahead and tried the jailbreak, worked beautifully. (Now if the Cydia servers would just free up....) On the iPad 3, though, I can't restore my backup from iCloud after jailbreaking, not sure why. I got the spinning circle for a long time (20 minutes or so), tried about 3 times, so I concluded something wasn't working. So, I'm in the middle of restoring my backup BEFORE jailbreaking. I'll let you know how it goes. But here's my question: what is the best sequence of restoring my backups after jailbreaking? (I have all my Cydia stuff backed up on pkgbackup, so I'm crossing my fingers that that will work, probably in a day or two when things cool down).

    1) a backup can take a long time to restore via iCloud depending on its size. Some of my large backups are a couple of GB - 20 minutes might not be long enough to wait.
    2) if your backup is on iCloud, you must restore it before jailbreaking due to the way IOS6 works. That is no problem with this jailbreak as the backup mechanism is being exploited in a very different way than Absinthe (which performed a full backup and restore).

    So the sequence is.

    1. Backup.
    2. iTunes restore to IOS 6.1
    3. Choose to restore from backup when finished
    4. Jailbreak using evasi0n

    All you have to do, if the "restore from backup" isn't working in iTunes, is go back to the App Store and re-download the apps that aren't transferring over.

    Once you've you've bought an app, it's yours, so it's a simple matter of getting them from the App Store.

    Well, if your backup is on iCloud, I'd love to know how you would restore it after? Can't be done AFAIK, unless I'm missing something fundamental?
    If you backup with iTunes, that's OK, but not iCloud.
    Where are you seeing the advice that it must be after the JB for evasi0n?
