    You should read up on this bug first, before deciding to skip the 7.0.6 update. This one's a little more serious than average!
    Yeah I am honestly leaning more towards updating. You guys got me.

    True. Also nearly irrelevant in this case. This bug had its source code published, it's very easy to exploit and very widely known, and finally, the consequences very serious. Meanwhile, the fix is straightforward and free, just a little time consuming.

    In other words, don't be effing lazy. Update and re-jailbreak. Follow the advice elsewhere about backing up via iTunes and your favorite Cydia backup package so you don't spend hours restoring all your packages, settings, and layouts.

You do this until Apple finally releases a version that has patched the exploit and you stay on that usually until the next big iOS update, then the cycle begins again. And you don't want to wait too long to upgrade to the smaller updates because Apple might stop signing them...it just gets annoying having to backup your stuff, restore your phone, upgrading, putting your stuff back on, JB, and getting your phone back to how you had it before with all your tweaks. Oh well! I love having a JB phone so of course I'll keep doing it, I just read PokemonDesigner's post and it made me think about all that, I understand exactly what he's saying lol!

    Anyway! Thanks for the JB update, it's very much appreciated!
    The choice to update is completely yours. You have to choose if you'd rather have to watch out which wifi network you connect to or not.

    Anyone else having problems jailbreaking the iPad Air Cellular model? It goes through the first step and reboots the iPad and then you go to tap on the evaisi0n icon and it comes up flashes quick and back to the main screen.

    I've tried it 3 times and same thing each time. My 5S worked fine but iPad air cellular model I get this

    Is apple still signing 7.0.4? I can't stand a non jailbroke device. I know this is all free but it's annoying when it doesn't work. iPad air Cellular modem on 7.0.6 that will run evaisi0n and reboot and after that when you tap the icon if flashes quick and does nothing. Need my jailbreak or I'll have to return this to apple as I'm in my 30 days yet.

    Updated and jb the day 7.0.6 came out. I am having problems with tweaks/apps not showing up after respringing. I often have to reboot for the app to show up! I did jailbreak with the UNofficial version though. It is what it is I suppose.

    Those are correct, except you have to do an iTunes backup after using OpenBackup. Also, there is a bug in OpenBackup 2.0.5 that causes it not to open. However, if you have version 2.0.4 then it won't back up your custom Cydia sources if you have any. You should go to OpenBackup's page in Cydia and press the Author field to email the developer (me). I can send you a working version of OpenBackup (it's still awaiting approval from ModMyi at this time).

    If you have sources/repos in Cydia other than the default ones I would recommend tapping on the author's name in OpenBackup's Cydia page to email him and ask for the newer version. You'll need it anyway if you plan on restoring to iOS 7.0.6 within the next day or two.

    It's 2.0.5-1. It fixes the problem with 2.0.5 but also the one with earlier versions of not backing up all of the data to make sure sources actually appear in Cydia after being restored.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "tweaks not working" but I couldn't even find tweaks at first. I then deleted sources like BigBoss and ModMyi and reinstalled them again and it all came up again.
