    Have I just been lucky to jailbrake my iphone 5c which has had ota updates since 7.0 and ipad mini ota since 6.1.4 without problems?
    From what I've read I thought it wasn't possible if you have ota'd in the past.

    Yes, this has been a remarkably stable jailbreak, ITSELF, so far. With little working from Cydia we get the vantage point of using our phones with only the jailbreak daily.. And my iPhone 4 is smooth.

    And no brightness problem after Respring - like we had with ios6 JB !! And dare we hope - Anthony are you out there? - does this JB allow us to keep our Battery usage levels after a Respring????? Could it be true? Battery usage figures would disappear after Respring in the evasi0n jailbreak for ios6... So annoying.

    Restore my 5s back to IOS7.0.4. at this point the jailbreak is useless.

    Actually MobileSubstrate works fine - in and of itself (according to a reputable dev here).. It's the tweaks themselves that need updating. But many people are running Gridlock successfully which uses MobileSubstrate. So do some testing. You'll be fine. Most tweaks are not ready and won't work at all yet. But having MobileSubstrate loaded won't add any instability to your phone in and of itself.

    I have no Idea what good a JB is without Cydia and Apps? What does it do with just the JB? And then I read of the many problems posted right after JB and then some post its stable, to me stable means few if any problems. Do we not need Apps to fully test and say its stable? How about restarts, crashes and battery life? Its barely 24 hours..........too soon to praise the JB IMHO

    Will do a restore. Will save SHSH files. But will not jailbreak yet.

    1) many reporting glitches with ipad2 which is the most popular iPad. Mine is on Verizon also so not sure on being compatible. Longer plan is need to find an iPad that has verizon 4G data to buy and jailbreak.

    2) many reporting problems with WINDOWS version of the jailbreak. That it takes 15 to 20 minutes to work. Win7 computers are everywhere so would think this would have had more testing and reporting.

    Jailbreak it's useless right now. But if you don't jailbreak now... You won't later on. Apple will patch if they want (7.0.5) or 7.1 coming up. I would jail break n just leave it like that for now. All of mine are just sitting there til everything get updated.

    Me too . iPad 2, I updated through iTunes and jailbroke but I keep getting stuck on a boot loop. Each time I have to do a restore. Does anyone know a way around this issue?

    DESCRIPTION:

    - evasi0n7 1.0 is an untethered jailbreak for all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.4


    SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:

    - MacOSX 10.5/10.6/10.7/10.8
    - Windows (XP minimum)


    SUPPORTED FIRMWARES:

    - iOS 7.0, 7.0.1, 7.0.2, 7.0.3, 7.0.4, 7.1beta1, 7.1beta2


    INSTRUCTIONS:

    - Backup your device using iTunes (or iCloud) before using evasi0n. If something breaks, you'll always be able to recover your data.
    - Those who use backup passwords in iTunes must disable them for now. After doing so, iTunes makes a brand new backup. Please wait for that backup to complete before proceeding! Feel free to re-enable your backup password after jailbreaking.
    - Please disable the lock passcode of your iOS device before using evasi0n. It can cause issues.
    - Launch evasi0n, plug in your device, and click "Jailbreak". Just sit back and observe its progress. Watch for any steps you may be asked to perform.
    - Avoid all iOS and iTunes related tasks until evasi0n is complete. Why not just enjoy a brief break from the computer to stretch your legs?
    - If the process gets stuck somewhere, it's safe to restart the program, reboot the device (if necessary by holding down Power and Home until it shuts down), and rerun the process.


    FAQ:

    If you have any questions regarding the jailbreak process or jailbreaking in general
    please go to the Jailbreak QA dedicated website: Jailbreak QA
    or see their help page for evasi0n: JailbreakQA evasi0n help - JailbreakQA
    or try /r/jailbreak on Reddit: iOS Jailbreak (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch!)

    Scared the **** out of me. Got stuck on windows logo, tried to restore via itunes DFU, kept getting error 3014. Changed my hosts file back to default and I'm currently restoring to iOS 7.0.4 at this very moment.

    I am gonna give it one more try after it restores, I read that there are still bugs to be worked out jailbreaking an iPhone 5S. Hopefully it works!

    Success!

    if you are having trouble do a restore. but do not restore your backup. just activate your iphone to get it basic functional with no apps. then jailbreak it. after jailbreak is working restore your apps. this worked better for me last time i did a jailbreak a year ago. try this and see what happens.

    In short, cydia makes it easier to acquire and install apps, but it's not the only method. The JB is what gives you root access.

    Has anyone else lost weather in notification center? I installed a few tweaks ( activator beta, respring, and burst mode). All notifications suddenly reset again and I lost weather. Tried uninstalling tweaks in reverse and rebooted several times with no luck. Reminds me of the last jb where the weather icon would crash.
