Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

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 is not jailbreakable, except an unsupported tethered iPhone 4 jailbreak.
Restoring or updating will update your device to iOS 7.1 and remove your jailbreak. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 7.1 to 7.0.x.

After I jailbroke my iPod 4th generation with redsn0w, it successfully downloaded Cydia. But when I press it, the screen flashes and goes right back to the home screen. I even tried jailbreaking again, but it just did the same thing! I have iOS 5.1, and I used a tethered jailbreak.

you have to boot tethered. Redsn0w>extras>just boot. Why stay on 5.1 when 5.1.1 is untethered??
