6 Things Jailbreakers Should Know after the release of iOS 7.1

Yesterday, Apple released iOS 7.1 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, which includes a number of new features, improvements, refinements and bug fixes.

So here are some of the things you should know if you’ve a jailbroken iOS device running iOS 7 – iOS 7.0.6 after yesterday’s release of iOS 7.1.
Do Not Update or Restore to iOS 7.1

As we’ve mentioned several times, Apple has patched several exploits in iOS 7.1 used by evad3rs in the evasi0n7 jailbreak, so it won’t work on devices that have been upgraded to iOS 7.1. evad3rs have also indicated that they’re unlikely to work on a jailbreak for iOS 7.1.
So if you’re either on iOS 7.0.6 or lower, you should avoid upgrading to iOS 7.1 if you don’t want to miss your favorite jailbreak tweaks, as they will be wiped off when you upgrade, and you won’t be able to jailbreak iOS 7.1.
Stop the Jailbreak Tweaks Binge

If you’re someone who installs anything and everything from Cydia, then you may want to take it easy, and reassess the situation. You should be very careful while installing jailbreak tweaks as a bad tweak could easily force you to restore your device, which would mean that you will lose the jailbreak and all the tweaks installed on your device.
It may also be prudent to check for the reviews or feel free to ask us a question about the tweak you want to install in our Forums.
Uninstall Jailbreak Tweaks that you don’t use

Since you are more likely to run into an issue with a tweak due to compatibility issues with other tweaks, it is a good idea to uninstall jailbreak tweaks that you do not use. This will reduce the probability of running into an issue.
Do not tinker with the File system

We have come across readers who have got into trouble for trying to tinker with the filesystem such as deleting a file using iFile etc, which ends up being a system file and results in forcing the user to restore their device. You should only be tinkering with the filesystem if you know what you’re doing, and now with the lack of a jailbreak for iOS 7.1, you’re better off avoiding it as much as possible.
How to Get Out of Reboot Loop problem

In case you’re not aware, it is possible to recover from a reboot loop problem on your jailbroken device thanks to the safe mode feature of mobile substrate. There are a number of people who still don’t know this, and end up restoring their device. So if you get into a reboot loop after installing a jailbreak tweak, check out this article on how to recover from it.
Install OpenSSH

CoolStar has just released SemiRestore7 for iOS 7, which allows you to restore your jailbroken iOS device to near stock condition without losing the jailbreak. SemiRestore can come in handy when you get into a reboot loop issue because of a problematic/buggy tweak, and the volume up trick to fix the problem does not work. Since it removes the jailbreak tweaks during the restore process, it can help in such cases.
SemiRestore needs OpenSSH to be installed on the jailbroken device for it to work, so install it from Cydia as soon as possible to you use SemiRestore in case you have a problem with your jailbroken device. Please note that you should change the root password of your jailbroken iOS device after installing OpenSSH to prevent someone from remotely accessing your iOS device. You can check our guide if you need help.
