    I think this is quite important and deserves it's own thread.

    Someone should translate that to "us normal folks" who have no idea what all that means....

    What I get from that is maybe I should wait before JBing...?

    Yes, that is pretty much the message.
    Leaving saurik out of the equation does not bode well.

    basically, nothing in cydia is ios 7 compatible. Still jailbreak both of my devices cause I know it'll get updated soon lol

    the whole point of jailbreaking is so that you can use cydia

    Cydia isn't updated completely for iOS 7, therefore I would wait until they push another release with an official iOS 7 ready Cydia

    Can i just update to iOS 7.0.4 so that i can at least jailbreak when things stabilize ?
    I am on iOS 5.1.1 currently.
    I missed updating to iOS 6.x and dont want to miss 7 now.

    yea it was.. but Cydia works fine on ios7 iPhone 5s, the bigger problem is waiting for all the apps to be updated by individual developers.

    That will take time, this time around there was not even a fully functioning tether available for the ip4 for dev's to test there tweaks on iOS 7.

    So all the stuff has to be re-written and tested on this release.

    Yes, I'd first update all my idevices to the latest 7.0.4 and then when things get stable JB a few days later.
    Packages might take a while to be updated but I hope the bitesms team gets on it quick like they usually are.

    The Chinese characters that make up the 'app store/steal your information' app translate in English to, Bend Over.

    No people with Gold iPhone should avoid jailbreaking as it bricks their phones. Works fine on silver and space grey phones though.

    Wait.

    There is absolutely no reason to jailbreak now unless you are a big fan of risk.

    I'm on 6.1.2 JB and I was excited when I saw the JB was released. however I think I'll wait a week or so until it calms down a bit and some bug fixes are resolved.

    I only have a few tweaks

    BiteSMS
    LockInfo
    SBSettings
    FiveIconDock
    MyWi

    and since it seems that these don't work right now anyway...I have nothing to gain by doing it right this second.

    I don't think it needs its own thread. JB was released Cydia for iOS 7.x isn't ready yet. Thats it end of story.

    Sorry but while I understand Saurik's concern, Cydia has been running flawlessly for me on my end.

    Any "update", will be distributable through either hooking up your iPhone to a computer and updating it with evasion, or through Cydia.

    no need to fret.
