    I have a jailbreak on my iPad and I would like to update to 7.1 I don't care about keeping the jailbreak, but when I click the software update tab in Settings, it just says checking for updates, and doesn't show the update. Do I have to un jailbreak it or something?

    if you're jailbroken already and want to update/unjailbreak, you must use itunes to do it

    plug in your iphone and click "restore"! Don't click the "update"

    Once you click restore, it should download the ipsw. But before you click that restore, make sure to make a backup and sync to your itunes library

    You probably have Software Update Killer installed. Remove it in Cydia and try again.

    I personally would wipe it and install fresh but that's just me.

    That's what i needed, thanks! Do you know of a link to a 7.1 iTunes download? I won't be around free wifi for a while and I don't have a lightning cable.

    iOS 6.x jailbreaks and above block the OTA daemon so Software Update Killer is no longer needed

    blocking the OTA daemon makes it so you can't even make a connection to apple's OTA servers to see if there's an update or not. Software Update Killer just makes it so you can't tap that download and install button
