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.

Are you pre-selecting the correct 6.0 ipsw?

What is the exact filename, and how old (approx) is your phone? Is it GSM (uses a sim card)? Also, you want 6.0 (six point zero), not any other version, regardless of what the phone is actually running.

It is a iphone 4 gsm 16 gb. the exact file name looks like the iphone3,1_6.1_10B144 restore.

@shadowowolf READ the above comments. No-one said to select 6.1.3.

Redsn0w has not been updated to recognize anything higher than 6.0. You select 6.0 to trick redsn0w.

@spockers even if i'm on 6.1.2 i should choose 6.0?
