evasi0n7 can jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 untethered. p0sixspwn can jailbreak iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5 untethered (see here for 6.1.6).
How to jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 (and fix problems). iOS 7.1.x is not jailbreakable, except an unsupported tethered iPhone 4 jailbreak.
Restoring or updating will update your device to iOS 7.1.1 and remove your jailbreak. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 7.1.x to 7.0.x.

How come my cydia won't work? It has worked great until there was a failed download. Now it comes up and says there was an error, and you click return to cydia but it takes you back to the same thing.

Can you post a screenshot of the error?

I jailbroke yesterday and still can't get on Cydia! I can't add any repos and the Cydia homepage won't even load! I'm going to try late at night when less people are on!

Because the new jailbreak Absinthe 2.0.1 for most devices including the new iPad just came out, their servers are currently full, you should try a few times and it should work.
