    Seen some press on it and most are saying JB is unlikely for a year or so...I dont believe that for one moment. What is the take on here?

    7.1 isn't jailbreakable with evasion 7.

    Anything more than that is just speculation.

    Evaders probably won't start looking at 7.1 until its actually released, and then its up to them to decide whether they have enough exploits to burn on it or to just wait till iOS 8 is out - which is where the 'next year' comment is coming from.

    Some of the early betas were jailbreakable with evasi0n, but in the newest betas (and public release), I believe Apple blocked the evasi0n vulnerabilities.

    Outside of the hacker circle, it's anyone's guess as to what this does to the jailbreak options of 7.1 - all just speculation.
    So no one can give you an accurate "take" (answer) until the release happens and the hackers give an opinion.

    Deal for a Jailbreak for 7.1? I have a deal for you. Send me cash or money order for $100 and I'll jailbreak your 7.1 for you. LOL, just kidding.

    But seriously, "most say a year or more" is utter garbage. There's no way anyone can say it'll be a day, a year, or ten years. People say the same thing every major release, and the fact is it's never been a year. As long as humans are programming software there will be humans that can outsmart the humans programming the software via bugs and glitches. Otherwise Windows users wouldn't be getting 27 service pack updates popping up every other day. LOL

    This.

    No one knows except the hackers. And even they probably don't know when the tool could be released. On top of that, even when they make public comments, they don't give ETAs so all press/blog news is pure speculation.

    They don't even know. IOS 7.1 (final) isn't out yet, therefor nobody, not even the creators of jailbreaks, have their hands on iOS 7.1 to even begin the process of looking for bugs to exploit.

    No one knows.
    7.1 is not even out yet.
    Nobody can tell you how long till the next jb.
    But if you want to stay jb don't update to the latest firmware Untill there's a jb for it.

    Yes, but I was talking about after 7.1 is officially released.
    If there is no jb yet for that iOS version then one shouldn't update.
    Unless they want to be stock.

    there would be very entertaining threads to read lol

    I'm most likely staying 7.0.6 until I upgrade to the 6s unless 7.1 ends up being jailbreaked

    Can't wait for the threads -
    "I somehow managed to download the 1.4ish gig update and installed it, how can I go back to iOS 7.0.6?"

    I'm guessing we may see an exploit used for 7.1 as the last hurrah before iOS 8. Then again, by the time 7.1 goes mainstream, it'll be 2, 3 months at most, before iOS 8 betas ... so it's 50/50 I'd say.

    don't worry about upgrading. The major new feature in ios 7.1 is they changed the square call button to a circle.

    What exploits are we referring to there? A5x bootrom?

    Ih8sn0w is quite knowledgable but mostly repackages exploit tools, no?

    Maybe I'm wrong

    While there certainly are a lot of improvements under the hood (on which I frequently posted; see e.g. my memory usage / Safari benchmarks), not being able to upgrade isn't THAT big an issue, not even for 64-bit users.
