If it is determined that ios7 closes the jailbreak, would evasi0n release a 6.1.4 jailbreak?

It's never completely closed. They just have to find it. If they are able to JB iOS 7, they can JB iOS 6.1.4. It would be just as hard to JB iOS 6.1.4 as it would be 7.

With all of these new features, ill bet jailbreaking iOS 7 is easier than iOS 6...Bound to be some easy bugs in all that new stuff...

Probably going to take a LONG time for a jailbreak...well, one that is good enough to a public release.

It shouldn't take more than 2 months, they've been bragging about these "exploits" and how they can save them to jailbreak iOS 7 right away. I sound spoiled but hey you have to back up your talk.

I agree with you there.

ok, to clarify, what I meant was or assumed is that there were some exploits available (saved) and rather using it to work on 6.1.3/6.1.4 jailbreak, they wanted to save it for ios7. Is that correct?

If so, let's say, when ios7 comes out, and these exploits can't be used on ios7, would they used the exploits to work on 6.1.3/6.1.4 jailbreak?

Or maybe I just don't know too much about jailbreaking lol.

When iOS 6.0 came out people we're saying that it shouldn't take long for a jailbreak to be released. We didn't get a jailbreak for almost 5 months. Don't believe what you hear until the jailbreak is released. Anything else is just rumors.

Nothing is jailbreak proof. It's just whether the person doing it is motivated enough.

Once a new firmware comes out they won't worry about 6.1.4. That's just how they roll. They concentrate on the current firmware. If that 6.1.4 exploit doesn't work on iOS 7, they just move on and find another exploit for iOS 7. If the new exploit just happens to also work on older firmwares, awesome, but that is not what their primary goal is.
