5 minutes of your time!
A computer, running Windows (XP minimum), Mac OS X (10.7 minimum)

An iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 8
(you may check in Settings / General / About => Version)
A USB cable to connect the device to the computer
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 7.0.x with iTunes first
device using iTunes (or iCloud) before using evasi0n. If something
breaks, you'll always be able to recover your data.
Please disable the lock passcode of your iOS device before using evasi0n. It can cause issues.
Avoid all iOS and iTunes related tasks until evasi0n is complete. Why
not just enjoy a brief break from the computer to stretch your legs?
If the process gets stuck somewhere, it's safe to restart the program,
reboot the device (if necessary by holding down Power and Home until it
shuts down), and rerun the process.
If you get an error on OS X 10.8/10.9 saying that evasi0n can't be
opened, control-click (or right-click) the app and on the revealed
context menu, choose 'Open.' On the ensuing dialogue box, choose 'Open'
Some Cydia tweaks are not yet compatible with iOS 7. The situation will improve as developers will update their software
