    Okay so I'm still waiting on the new Iphone 6 to upgrade and its TAKING FOR EVER but for now I'm already getting apps saying can't update cause I don't have IOS7+ so my question is should I back up iphone reset to factory and then up grade to newest IOS 7.1.2? I think and then jail break again????


    And if I do what program do I use to JB??? last time I did it I used evasi0n for IOS6 and was SMOOTH..

    Thanks in advance guys

    Only you can answer that question. I will say this. I have come across more than one person who has said that they wished they were back on iOS 6.

    But if you like iOS 7, then go ahead. The jailbreak you want for that is the Pangu jailbreak I believe.

    BTW, I'm still on iOS 6.1 as well and my wife is on 6.0.3.

    You know what? Normally I'd give you a link based off a Google search, but I don't want to do that this time in case I give out one that's incorrect, bogus, or otherwise harmful. In all honesty, I don't know what the official link is as the last jailbreak I used was Evasi0n for iOS 6.

    So, maybe one of the more knowledgeable users here can provide a link.

    I ran 7.0 on my 4S for a while and it ran great. I also know that 7.1 runs even better on the older devices.

    I never regretted upgrading.

    I had trouble with Pangu on my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini on a couple occasions. What seemed to work best was to backup everything using iTunes, then update/restore to 7.1.2 (also via iTunes, not OTA), but then don't restore from backup. Set the device up as a new device instead of restoring it. Jailbreak that using Pangu, then install any tweaks... and only after that's done restore your apps and stuff from your backup.

    Pangu is nice to have, but it doesn't have the polish that evasi0n did.
