I downloaded this, and attempted it. In the instructions it says not to touch iOS functions or iTunes functions while performing the JB. I got an important call, that got cut off halfway through due to a reboot and it bricked my phone, until I set it up in DFU mode and restored from my backup.

The only thing I lost was my banking app and iTransmission.

iOS 7 Jailbreak released.

A lot of tweaks still not compatible but saurik says to jailbreak anyway just in case.

Right now I only have

HiddenSettings7
No Carrier Name
NoNewMark (blue update dot)
SwipeSelction
SwitchSpring

just to cover the basics. I'm kicking myself for upgrading to 7.0.4. iOS 6.1.4 should be JBed on A5+ devices on Christmas. I just couldn't wait

In other words, hold the power and home buttons until it cycles off, plug it in and restore.

Just FYI, mobile substrate doesn't work on 64 bit devices yet and semi works on 32 bit devices. So most tweaks that rely on mobile substrate ( almost all the apps in cydia) don't work yet. But saurik is working on it and should be fixed in couple of days.

I remember jailbreaking was really popular years ago because if you had an iPhone 2g/3g/3gs you would unlock it to use with any carrier.
Appcake & vShare are worth it, but the extra tweaks too. Having said that, I can't believe it took me so long to switch to Android, 1000x better.

It all depends on your ecosystem. To me, android is terrible and so is windows mobile. I have macs, so it's better to have an iPhone.

If you are a PC guy, go with android/windows mobile. But don't knock the other brand. Hell, we got my father an android tablet for Christmas, and he is a Mac and PC guy. Whatever works for you is the best one to get.

Why? Many apps these days are free or $0.99 a piece.
