Apple is expected to release iOS 7.1 to the public "any day now," and if you want to make sure you're on the latest jailbreakable firmware, you should think seriously about upgrading to iOS 7.0.6 as soon as possible.
There are a number of reasons to upgrade to iOS 7.0.6 before iOS 7.1 drops:
- iOS 7.1 cannot be jailbroken with evasi0n7
- When iOS 7.1 is released, Apple will no longer sign iOS 7.0.6
- iOS 7.0.6 is the latest jailbreakable firmware with evasi0n7
- iOS 7.0.6 is the most stable jailbreakable iOS 7 public release to date
- iOS 7.0.6 natively includes a legitimate patch for the nasty SSL connection verification bug
- Many jailbreak developers are developing on iOS 7.0.6 and not earlier firmwares
- You can take advantage of this grace period to do a DFU restore and start fresh with a brand-new, clean jailbreak
If you're experiencing any bugginess on your jailbroken device, this is definitely a great time to take advantage of the situation and get yourself to a freshly-jailbroken iOS device with no problems at all. In addition, if you're not experiencing any bugs at all, but you just want to get to the latest jailbreakable version of iOS 7 with the least amount of bugs, then this is also a great time to get yourself to iOS 7.0.6 and re-jailbreak with evasi0n7.
You have the option after updating to iOS 7.0.6 to restore from a backup of your device, or to set up the device as a completely new, never-used device. Restoring from your backup will put all of your settings and application data back on your device, while setting the device up as new will make it feel like you just bought it again.
Since iOS 7.0.6 will no longer be signed by Apple once iOS 7.1 is released to the public, this means that once iOS 7.1 is released to the public, you will be forced to upgrade to iOS 7.1 and not iOS 7.0.6 if you ever need to restore. If you're jailbroken, this means you won't be able to jailbreak again until (and if) iOS 7.1 is publicly jailbroken.
Of course, we also can't stress enough the importance of iOS 7.0.6 being the most stable jailbreakable iOS public release to date. Since iOS 7.0, Apple has been releasing very tiny bug fixes with each release up to iOS 7.0.6, and with 7.0.6 being the latest, it's also the most secure and stable (especially after fixing that nasty SSL issue). So you'll get that peace of mind knowing that you have the most stable jailbreakable firmware to date jailbroken on your iOS device as well.
Upgrading is, of course, optional, but we certainly recommend it. If you do go through with the upgrade, we have guides on how to re-jailbreak once more at this link.
