Everton registered their first win of the season thanks to Roger Johnson's own goal and a late header from Tim Cahill as they shattered Birmingham's 13-month unbeaten home record with a 2-0 victory.
David Moyes' side moved off the bottom of the table and it was no more than they deserved after dominating possession for long periods and looking the more threatening.
Johnson could only deflect a low cross from Leon Osman past Blues keeper Ben Foster nine minutes into the second half. Then in injury-time Cahill turned in Leighton Baines' centre.
