    I would be interested in knowing the consensus with the latest update.

    How is it treating most people? Mostly safari crashes. Some people have said that safari seems more stable. Do others agree? Referring to mostly 64 bit devices there.

    I haven't noticed any performance changes. I think those will come with 7.1.

    7.0.6 just has a very important security fix. Everyone should probably update to it and rejailbreak.

    EDIT: I just came across this article which you may find interesting.

    It's like 7.0.4 but with SSL working properly.

    Except it isn't. My battery life on 7.0.6 is ALOT better. And I restored on 7.0.4 multiple times.

    Considering there were no other changes in the update, it seems like there's something else that would be in play behind that then.

    I haven't noticed any difference on 7.0.6, nor did I expect to.

    I have the exact same tweaks as I did from 7.0.4 and my battery lasts longer. Apple said they fixed barley anything in iTunes 11.4 when they actually did fix a activation bug. The change log isn't 100% everything.

    i can second this. after multiple restrings, reboots, and tweak installing today, as well as typical use, it is at 52 percent. normally it would have died already...

    7.0.6 is jail breakable? I'm on 7.1 b3 on my iPhone 5 but 7.0.4 on my iPhone 4.

    I also feel like my battery life is a little bit better. I've been on reddit, tapatalk, updated shazam and boa apps, scrolling through Facebook, texting and surfing the web... Still at 88% battery life with 1hr and 48 min usage and 7 hr 59 min standby.

    On 7.0.4 the only way I could achieve this is if I was driving to work and playing music over Bluetooth. But when I actually start doing things with the screen on the battery starts dropping much quicker. No music today since it's my day off, so something has increased my battery life.

    Can anyone comment on the stability of crashes in general? And the stability of crashes in safari when loading big websites?

    Overall about the same for me. I do notice slightly better battery life but I didn't have any issues on 7.04 either.

    I am on 75 percent was 85 in the morning and I've been installing tweaks and using the hell out of it. You guys might be onto something about better battery performance.

    None of that should or really would be different from 7.0.4, at least not due to changes in 7.0.6.

    No differences at all on my 4S. Except maybe peace of mind when buying apps and tweaks. But the NSA still has me spooked.

    I restored to 7.0.6. No big deal except that my Cydia sources were all jacked up, so I had to uninstall WinterBoard, clean my sources, re-upgrade Substrate, reinstall winterboard and all tweaks that weren't found on the original source package list. (which includes Activator, FlipControlCenter, InstaLauncher...and probably a bunch I haven't remembered yet)

    So, the restore wasn't nearly as seamless as it's been in the past, even using PKGBackup.
