As most of you already know, the iOS 7 jailbreak is now possible with the help of Evasi0n tool. After a couple of months of waiting, we are finally able to perform an untethered jailbreak on out iOS 7 – 7.0.4 devices. Evasion is suitable for all firmware versions starting with iOS 7 and above. In the same time, the tool is compatible with almost all new devices such as iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5c, 5S, iPad 2, 3, 4, Air, Mini, Mini 2, and iPod Touch 5th Generation.
However, this kind of gift has taken most of the iOS community by surprise. As happened in the case of other jailbreak tools released, we should expect to encounter various problems and issues. In this respect, a notable number of users are reporting that their attempt to jailbreak their own devices is failing, being stuck on the Apple boot logo.
At this point, having Evasi0n available for download to perform iOS 7 jailbreak, the jailbreak community is divided by three. The first is the jailbreaker who cannot download the well-awaited jailbreak tool, on the second place is the jailbreaker who downloaded and performed the iOS 7 untethered jailbreak without any problem, and in the last part, there is the jailbreaker who gets stuck with Apple boot logo on his screen.
In the case of the last one, Evad3rs have tried to find a quick solution, and now, users can easily fix their devices. It appears that the Apple boot logo appears only on those devices that run a version of iOS 7.0 installed as an OTA update. In case you know you upgraded your device over-the-air, and you plan to jailbreak using Evasi0n, or if you already tried to perform jailbreaking and you got stuck on Apple logo, you have nothing to worry about.
Evad3rs announced “Over the Air updates of iOS 7 are known to create an issue and make the jailbreak fail. Some devices are then stuck on the Apple Boot Logo. Until we fix that, please restore your device to iOS 7.0.4 with iTunes first.”
Therefore, if you want to fix the Apple logo problem, feel free to perform the following tutorial since it represents the most genuine solution for this problem at this time. In case you find yourself stuck during the process, enter your device into DFU mode and proceed with the following steps.

3. At this point, you have to press and hold the Power and Home Buttons at the same time for almost 10 seconds.
4. Release the Power button, while you keep holding the Home Button. You have to do this until your computer recognizes the USB device.
