I'm trying to jailbreak my iPod touch with a tool called evasi0n.

I have downloaded the package, but I have no idea how to run/install it. I am trying to do this on a Dell Latitude D830 with an Intel Core 2 Duo and 4GB of ram.

What does this have to do with ubuntu? – Magpie Feb 8 '13 at 0:56
There is a Linux version of the tool that I am trying to make work on Ubuntu. – kyle_hamblett Feb 8 '13 at 0:58
Where did you get it from? What version are you running? etc – Magpie Feb 8 '13 at 19:09
@Magpie FYI Webupd8 publishing an article on Monday may have something to do with this. – Kevin Bowen Feb 8 '13 at 20:15

There's another way to install evasi0n on Ubuntu rather than downloading from the website. This way is a bit better (In my opinion) as you will get updates for it in the Software Updater every time the team updates the tool.

To install Evasi0n in Ubuntu 12.10/12.04, open Terminal (Press Ctrl + Alt + T) and copy the following commands in the Terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/evasion
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install evasion-linux

Then, to open it, go to the dash, and type evasi0n.

I just figured it out: Go into the downloads folder, and extract it. Go into the folder, and the one that says evasi0n, click on it, and a window will open up. Just choose "open with terminal". A terminal window will pop up, and then the evasi0n window will.
