    From what I've read on these forums, once 7.1 is out you wont be able to jailbreak anymore, so it is important to JB sometime soon, right? Anyways, I restored my devices to 7.0.4 got rid of Cydia, I then updated all my iOS devices to 7.0.6. I then JB them but I made backups in iTunes before that. Whenever 7.1 is released and what not, will I still be able to use iTunes to restore my phone back to 7.0.6 with the 7.0.6 backups I made? Say my iPhone starts acting up and I have no idea what tweak could be causing the issue or if I need to start fresh, will I be able to use that 7.0.6 backup, restore it to 7.0.6 and JB that backup again? Hope this makes sense, lol.

    You can not restore to previous versions of iOS once the signing window closes

    When 7.1 is released it will no longer be possible to update to 7.0.6 and iTunes backups do not backup iOS versions, only the data on the phone
