    Once Apple stops signing 7.0.4 I'd think it would be important to take secure measures to prevent any mishaps from occurring, forcing an update to 7.1

    What are your preparedness plans?
    Is there a tweak (like softwareupdatekiller for 6.1.2) that will assist?

    Will you have iLEX RAT at the ready, locked and loaded- just in case?

    Why would you want to stay on 7.0.4?

    My plan is to bolt from 7.0.4 as fast as possible because it is terrible.

    Because he's jailbroken and exploits in 7.1 will be closed.

    Exactly.

    Honestly- as a developer I ran the betas- right up to this last one, on my iPad and my iPhone 5c (also, for a short period of time on a 4S) and didn't see such a remarkable difference as is at times touted here.

    YES- it is an improvement as the iDevices seem more fluid, yet to lose a jailbreak over it?
    Not worth it.

    OpenSSH incase anything bad happens. afc2add seems to be too 'dangerous' (which is actually why it was removed from being installed by default). And you can use OpenSSH whenever you can use afc2add (even semi-restore uses it). Check the large reddit thread about it for information, saurik posted a lot about it there.

    What is the use of 'softwareupdatekiller'? I thought evasion now stopped all OTA updates anyway?

    Is Software Update Killer compatible with iOS 7?

    I was told it wasn't needed, seeing as you can't update anyways once jailbroken. It installs fine though, not sure what its supposed to do.

    So when Apple pushes the new software update, we won't lose the jailbreak?

    You wont lose your jailbreak unless you update to 7.1. You can stay on whatever iOS version your on for as long as you want.

    Oh ok. I thought we won't get an option and Apple will force the update.

    Wha…wait?! iOS7?

    Damn! The part of the iOS 6 Evasi0n jailbreak that kills update notifications didn't let me know that there was an iOS 7 out. I'm still on iOS 6.1! When did Apple release this? :D

    No, never. You don't need to install anything, the JB blocks OTA updates.
    You will only lose the JB if you connect your iphone to iTunes and when it asks you if you want to update to the latest firmware version and you click yes, install and download the new firmware file and go through with the install.
    And then many will ACCIDENTALLY update and will come running asking how they can JB again or how they can downgrade :D
    Don't do it.

    It is amazing people still believe Apple 'pushes' iOS upgrades.
