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.

Hi,

How do I re-restore iOS 6.1.2 on iPhone 4 after 6.1.3 is released? I have SHSH saved for 6.1.2. Do I also need iOS 4.x SHSHs for this to work?

I read that iOS 6 SHSHs are only working for A4 and older devices.

Do I need to use redsn0w for restoring or can I still use iTunes? Do I need to stitch SHSH?

@i4user, iphone 4 can easily be restored to 5.x or 6.x. You have to stitch the firmware with respective blobs using redsn0w or sn0wbreeze. This custom firmware can then be restored using redsn0w or itunes(shift/option+restore). Obviously for the current ios, you never need blobs because apple is always signing them.And yes, this downgrading process does not work for A5+ devices.

I am on iphone 4s - firmware 5.1.1, and I need to upgrade to ios 6.1.2 is it possible? I saved the ios 6.1.2 shsh blob on my desktop with iFaith.

Is it possible for the upgrade yes or no many thanks!
