The OS doesn't matter. Sounds like you'll have to restore and you could only restore to iOS 6.1.3, which is not jailbreakable.

You can try to bypass the password using one of those bugs recently found on IOS. You won't be able to remove the password anyway since it will ask for the current one first.
