    Somehow the checkmark "Manually manage songs/videos" has been un-checked and to get it back...I have to sync and erase. With that said, I'm currently using the iPhone 5 7.0.4...I read on evad3ers that 7.0.5 has been released for the 5s/5c but I didn't see anything mentioned about the 5.

    Will I be fine erasing and rejailbreak? Or will I be forced to 7.0.5?

    Thanks for the help!

    Syncing won't restore your firmware. It's just saying it'll wipe your current music and photo library on the device and replace with the new one

    You can reset settings putting it at factory default and keep your jailbreak.

    Check to see if 7.0.5 is even available to you. As of last night, itunes tells me that 7.0.4 is the latest version available to my 5S.

    If 7.0.4 is the latest available to you too, it will be safe to erase and re-jailbreak.

    Yes, it is safe to completely reset/restore and re-jailbreak.
    Even if you did have a Chinese iPhone and 7.0.5 was downloaded, it is safe to jailbreak.

    Just don't actually use the "Reset to Factory Settings" option in Settings - that'll get you into a bootloop.

    huh! that's interesting to find out, thanks

    wish the public release of 7.1 would surprise us and not fix the jailbreak exploits :D
