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.

go ahead. And I'm sure the update will be pushed out through cydia itself too.

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.

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.
