How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have an iphone 5s, I was hoping it wouldn't be on anything higher than 7.0.6 but unfortunately it came and I found out it had 7.1.1 Is there a way I can downgrade that back to 7.0.6 I've been hearing a lot about it not being possible... If it's not possible then will there be a jailbreak for 7.1.1? I didn't ask for release dates, but I just wanna know if there will eventually be one.

It's not possible to downgrade. There has been a jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 since June. The jailbreak tool is called Pangu. Here is where to get the jailbreak tool:

Is this Pangu one to be trusted? I've never heard of it. I usually like to stick with Evasi0n, but if this Pangu one is trustworthy I will look into it.

Pangu is trusted. There are no traces of malware or anything like that.

Pangu is trusted. Otherwise it would not be recommended. I suggest you restore to 7.1.2 and use Pangu to jailbreak.

I've been through too much with getting this phone set up and looking for answers about my phone to restore to 7.1.2. I just got everything back onto my phone I don't wanna have to do it again, I'm gonna jailbreak with ios7.1.1 and restore from a backup if everything goes wrong.
