Even though Evasi0n7 was updated to version 1.0.2 recently there is still some bugs plaguing users. One bug in particular is the Configuring System (2/2) Evasi0n error. An error that essentially causes Evasi0n to be stuck on step 2/2 and if left the system simply sits there with nothing happening… obviously not conducive to a good Jailbreak.

Pod2G recently tweeted about a possible fix to the problem when asked about it and apparently the only thing you can do if you are experiencing the issue is to run Evasi0n7 on a faster PC or Mac.
@brittagus told us that some people were stuck on the 'configuring system 2/2' step. It's possibly because of a slow machine. Try on another

According to Pod2G this step uses ‘a race condition’ which requires speed, and if you computers doesn’t have enough speed or has a ton of applications running in the background hogging up memory it can cause issues.
So realistically two things are either happening:
- You have too old of a machine
- You have too many applications running in the background (possibly a Virtual Machine)
If the first scenario applies to you then you will have to try running Evasi0n on a different computer (ask friends/family). Otherwise reboot your computer and see what is running in the background. Kill anything that is hogging memory and then try the Jailbreak again.
