Trying to jailbreak your iPhone 5 or iPad mini with evasi0n but getting the ‘You Must Run this App as Administrator’ error on Windows? Here’s the fix.
The easiest way to fix this is by right clicking on this program and click ‘Run As Administrator’. However, if you’re running Windows 7 (or XP) and it doesn’t have the option for you to input your local admin password, you can try the following.
1. Download the latest evasi0n from the official website.
2. Decompress the zip file to your local drive. I prefer C:\ drive. Here I created a folder called ‘jb’. Place the evasi0n program here.
3. Once you have all the files ready, click Start > Run and they type CMD. This will launch the DOS window (black screen).
That’s it! Then simply follow on screen instructions to jailbreak your iPhone 5, iPad mini etc.
If you don’t remember your local admin password and you do have local admin rights, change your password on the Control Panel.
I just finished jailbreaking my iPad mini… :)
