    My iPhone 5 is jailbroken (iOS 7.0.4) and I want to update to the latest iOS. What's the safest way to do that? I know that I will lose the jailbreak, I don't mind. But I don't want to lose my apps, contacts, etc.

    Back up, restore, update, install back up.

    Download 7.1 IPSW for your iPhone and point iTunes to the firmware you downloaded (Shift+Restore) make sure you make full backup first.

    Over/Under a single week before you miss your jailbreak?
