No new features... Just minor cosmetic changes. But it's definitely snappier compared to iOS 7.0.4.
The updates are designed for everyday commoner users like you, NOT for power users. You're exactly the one who SHOULD update.
Nobody who says "too many important calls bro" has any important calls coming in, let alone calls important enough to warrant not being able to be away for a 30 minute update.I can't go 30 mins without a phone, too many important calls bro.
My biggest concern is like with 6.0 vs 6.1, some developers wrote their apps so that if you were to try to run it on 6.0, it'd pop up saying you have to update to have it work... version spoofers are unreliable at times. So for me it's more protecting against that aspect, along with the fact that it really does make a big difference (vs 7.0.4) for my iPad... scrolling and web pages are so much more smooth.I wouldn't bother.
I'm on 7.0.4 and staying here till iOS 8 is jb.
I have everything setup great now and the few small changes or improvements are not really that important to me.
But it's likely that Apple will drop 7.1.3 patching the JB and stop signing 7.1.2 before all the tweaks are compatible... that's my point... 90% are compatible today... We know this window doesn't last forever. So unless there's a tweak that someone simply can't live without (can't think of one since the critical\most downloaded ones are all updated), they should absolutely update while they can.True.
I think for my iPad I'm going to go for it and jb it on 7.1.2
About the phone I might either wait for the jb iOS 8 or at least wait till all packages are updated and work fine with 7.1.2
Heard there's still some incompatibilities with a bunch of hacks but it's still early and expected for stuff to be fixed.
Easiest and most effective for this jailbreak is simply to plug in and accept the update. It'll retain almost everything except the tweaks.Do I have to Restore, or can I simply Update and re-jailbreak?
If I did restore, could I restore my backup from when I was jailbroken (without re-jailbroking)?
