    You can upgrade to the latest Apple is signing. You'll lose your jailbreak. But anything other than the latest, no.

    I guess, the first question here should be....what iPhone do you have?

    iPhone 4, of course as 7.1.2 is the latest firmware offered.

    Can the OP not simply just perform a restore via iTunes? It will remove the jailbreak however.

    If he has an iPhone 4, he can save SHSH blobs, and make a custom IPSW

    He never said what type of device he's using.
    So all assumptions are pointless.

    Yes. Apple stopped upgrading the iPhone 4 at iOS 7.1.2. The only problem is the performance of the device will drop noticeably from 5.1.x to 7.1.2.

    When you say it will drop noticibly? Is that mainly battery life?

    Worth upgrading to iOS 7 though seeing as most apps are iOS 7 now

    No.
    Everything will feel slow or lag compared to ios 5 that you're on now.

    Plug it to the latest itunes and hit restore.
    Then restore your backup and sync your stuff back.
    Then jb it.

    I would really advise against iOS 7 on an iPhone 4, My friends who did it ended up getting new phones because it made the 4 agonizingly slow!
