    As the release 7.1 release nears has it been determined that it's safe for us to stay on any of the Jailbroken 7.1 betas without fear of expiration and losing our Jailbreak window?

    I've gone from 7.1b1 to b2 to b3 and now back on 7.04 as it appears to be the only version of without boot loop issues on the 5s. But miss the 7.1 and am very tempted to deal with the boot loops and return to 7.1 b3.

    But curious if the expiration tweaks have been tried and verified.

    They were confirmed. The bugs aren't worth it for me though. iMessages not sending, the NBC app not fully functioning, losing auto brightness, not worth it.

    Staying on b3 unless the next version is vulnerable too.

    B1's expiration test has been verified. We are assuming the method will continue to work for b2 and b3.

    Same staying on beta2.

    Might stay even if b4 is vulnerable since it's been working so well.

    I think only GM ill re-jb with.

    Did you experience all this on 7.0.4? What are you on now?

    This is all on 7.1 beta 3. I personally noticed that auto brightness bug. It also appears to not be as intelligent with the way it reacts to light. But oh well, everything else - aside from the stupid changes they made to the keyboard graphics - is fine.

    Sorry yeah beta 3. I'm back on 7.0.4. Never tried beta 3 actually because the messages glitch was bad. Beta 2 I was on but I wanted the NBC app working so...
