I have iPhone 5 on 7.0.4

So is it safe to jailbreak now ? or wait for evaders to release new version that has bundled cydia 1.1.9

Is there anything backdoor that steals privacy?

It doesn't make any difference either new cydia is bundled or upgrade from old cydia ?

When you open Cydia for the first time, it will look like the iOS 6 Interface. There's a popup sreen that asks you to upgrade some packages on Cydia, tap "Upgrade All" or "Upgrade Now" whatever it says, then go to "Changes" then tap "Upgrade All" on the top-right. Wait for Cydia to do its thing, then it'll ask you to respring or Return to Cydia. Then, it will have an iOS 7 interface.
