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.

my iphone 3gs running 6.1.3 is draining battery so fast. it reduces battery by 10% overnight even though not in use. i keep brightness in a low level and barely uses apps or wifi. disabled 3g and location services. and still it drains battery so fast. or is this just normal?

but i think ios 4.1 does not drain battery so fast. due to hardware issues like the home and lock button, i rely on assistive touch. and if i would restore 4.1 would i be able to use apps and is there a cydia tweak similar to assistive touch that would work on 4.1. THANKS!

Unless the phone is OFF, 10% drainage overnight is not unusual. Keep in mind that in sleep mode, the cellular radio is listening for calls; this takes power. On a 3GS, which has an old(ish) battery, you're doing better than average.

You can use Activator, just set an action to simulate a lock button or a home button press. IMO, its better than assistive touch because its less obtrusive.
