Currently running 7.1b2 (legit as I have a dev account) on my 5s and rMini.

Do I JB on this, knowing that it's beta and b3, b4 etc will be on their way.

Or do I revert to 7.0.4 and JB that, as it's the most recent "final" build.

Hmmmm.....

I would revert to 7.04 unless you are using 7.1b2 to test development?
Unless I have access to developers and have been asked to test something I try and steer well clear of betas.

I went back to 7.0.4 the tweaks are worth loosing the 2 new things they added in 7.1. Heres the thing if they update (say 7.0.5) and patch JB you will be stuck on the beta forever or until it expires. If it expires your screwed no JB for you.

There seems to be a workaround for that in another thread floating around here...

Yep saw the workaround but I have to think that most or the community will be working from 7.0.4. Plus I don't know that the workaround is a guarantee that it won't break in the future at some point. Ultimately it will be up to him but I have a Dev account and I'm using 7.0.4.

I was in iOS 7.1 beta 2 but reverted back to iOS 7.0.4. Worth the jailbrake. Hopefully when iOS 7.1 goes public you can still jailbreak it.
