    Just kind of curious if people that are previously jailbroken are jumping to this new jailbreak.

    I personally think it will be a huge pain the butt to reinstall all my tweaks and get my theming back to how it is... So I may not upgrade from 7.0.6. I really regretted losing all my theming when updated from 6 to 7...

    Just curious what other people are thinking.

    7.0.x to 7.1.1 isn't really that big a change apart from the performance increase and security bug fix.

    I am trying it on my old iPad2 which is stuck at 7.1.1 already anyway then in a couple of days I'll move my iPad mini and iPhone5 to it once we know it is fine to use.

    Nope staying on 7.0.6. As I don't want to go through the hassle of reinstalling everything.

    I was jail broken on 7.1b2 so it was well worth it for me to upgrade to 7.1.1 and re-jailbreak. Only took me a couple hours to get everything back exactly how I hade it.

    I'm on 7.0.4 and everything runs fine.
    Not really a reason for me to go to 7.1.1

    iOS 6.1, jailbroken. I'm staying for the same reason. I have everything pretty much the way I want it and I don't look forward to having to go through all that work over again after updating and rejailbreaking just to get back to the same spot.

    Not to mention new searching for and working with new tweaks to do what the old and now non-working tweaks are doing.

    That and I detest the iOS 7 color choices. Yes, it can be themed now and some of the black themes really attract me. But not enough to go through all of that again.

    My 5S is on 7.0.4. I have been having battery issues. I'm tempted to move up to 7.1.1

    also, while i know afc2 is messed up with the new jailbreak, and its very insecure anyways, i need afc2 to use my iPhone jailbroken. I'm not losing that.

    I don't have a windows comp. so that's 1 reason I'm staying. But I need afc2 and I don't know how comfortable I am with pangu yet. Being on 7.0.6 and perfectly set up iPhone, I'll likely just stay. I see no reason to start over.

    Unless I get a new phone ;)

    7.1 is so much better than any 7.0.x release. So why not update!!!

    if afc2add is your problem, saurik released his own package called Apple File Conduit "2" that works for iOS 7.1.x

    Nah the real problem is that I think my phone is perfect in terms of theming, tweaks, and everything. There is no reason to fix something that isn't broken. That only causes headaches down the road. :).
