WARNING: Make sure that your iPad, iPhone or iPod device is supported (see the supported devices list at the beginning of the article) and that is was already updated to iOS 6.x. Those of you who require a network unlock DO NOT PROCEED with the tutorial!
ATTENTION: ALWAYS make a backup of your device(s) before the jailbreak procedure! Make sure the battery is charged over 50% and that the device is connected to the computer via the USB cable!
Not meeting these requirements will result in a failure!
Step 1 – Download and execute evasi0n
You can grab a copy of the evasi0n jailbreak tool right now from here. Download it on your desktop and extract the file from the archive. Both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures are supported.
Connect your iDevice and double-click the executable for your architecture and you will see the following window...
Step 2 – Jailbreak your iDevice
Your device will be detected, and all you have to do now is to click the "Jailbreak" button. DO NOT PUSH ANY BUTTONS! DO NOT TOUCH THE COMPUTER! DO NOT REMOVE ANY CABLE!
When the progress bar on the evasi0n tool is complete, and the evasi0n icon appears on your device, launch it to complete the jailbreak process!
When evasi0n finished the jailbreak process, reboot the device and you'll see the Cydia icon on the home screen of your iDevice, which means that the jailbreak process is over and you can restore the backup. Watch the video below for more details!
