We will be providing you with a full tutorial on how to download evasi0n for iOS 7+ on your device in a separate article. In the meantime, there are one or two issues that have come to light since the release of the utility.
Firstly, if you use any Cydia apps or tweaks that rely on MobileSubstrate, you may find a few problems with the new jailbreak. When you have installed evasi0n please only download and install these apps and tweaks that specifically say they are compatible with iOS 7 firmwares.
Secondly, if you run into any trouble while you are jailbreaking with evasi0n, iH8sn0w has a tip you can try. He says that if your iOS 7 upgrades have been done by the OTA method, you should make a full back up of your device in iTunes, carry out a full restore and then try installing the jailbreak again.
