How to fix some mysterious problems.

I just bought a new iphone 5S, i checked the manufacture date and IOS version on some website, it says it has the IOS 7.0.5. Shall i use evasi0n to jailbreak it or are there other better jailbreaking tools for this phone and IOS version? Is there something i need to do before the jailbreak or during to minimize the risk for the jailbreak not to succeed? And if the first jailbreak attempt doesn't succeed can´t i jailbreak it again since it needs to be restored before trying to jailbreak a second time and when restore it will update to 7.1.1 which can´t be jailbreaked, so do i only got one shot to jailbreak it?? Which apps are a must have in order to be able to fix any problems that can occur later on to the jailbreak or the iPhone? afc2add, ifile, openSSH, Mobile terminal, or what? And finally how can i know which tweaks and packages and stuff are safe to install so it doen´t mess up the jailbreak or the phone? Is there a way to know what can be installed and what is a risk for the phone? Thanks for some help before the jailbreak.
