iPhone Cydia jailbreak

Hello, Cydia

It really is as simple as that. From this point, the evasi0n app does all the work. The phone resets three to four times and lo behold, Cydia appears on the iDevice’s desktop. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you. Suffice to say, the iDevice can now be customized above and beyond its original settings. Finally, we’ve included a video tutorial to walk you through this very easy process.
