    Hey guys, new to the forum. Need some help with my iPhone 5.

    I tried jailbreaking my iPhone 5 today that has iOS 7.0.2 using evasi0n. I backed up my iPhone to the computer (not the cloud) using iTunes. At first I used the latest version of evasi0n to try and jailbreak, which is believe is version 1.0.8. However, the program kept crashing out near the end of the jailbreak, and wasn't loading Cydia, and it kept leaving behind the evasi0n app/icon on my phone. So I tried using an older version of evasi0n, 1.0.2 this time. It seemed to work, however when the phone went to reboot, it never came back up. It just sits there with a black screen and Apple icon. I put the iPhone into DFU mode, however I can't seem to find the backup that I did immediately prior to the jailbreak attempt? I don't want to upgrade to iOS 8 yet, so how do I get my phone restored using the backup I just did? I can't seem to find the ISPW file anywhere.

    You can't since Apple stopped signing iOS 7.0.2 a long time ago. The only way to save your phone now is to restore and update to iOS 8.

    Wait, so what was the point in backing up my iPhone to the computer then?

    So you don't lose your data. Sadly yes, a restore to iOS 8 may be required.

    Do I have any other options to avoid upgrading to iOS 8?

    If you are stuck in dfu mode, probably not. You can try rebooting (power plus home) but that may not help you jailbreak.
