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.

Is their any possible ways of undoing a update. I recently just updated my ITouch to 4.3.3 but it stopped me from using the Jailbreak apps. it tried to jailbreak it again with snowbreeze but don't know why a error occurred while restoring and won't let me restore it. i'm thinking now is their anyway to undo the update.

You can not undo in the sense you're asking about, however you can use redsn0w 0.9.6rc17 for Windows or redsn0w 0.9.6rc17 for Mac to jailbreak it again.

you have several options as listed by the other posters..

A. you can go back to a previous iOS version if you have SHSH saved, use Tiny Umbrella to check.

B. there really isn't a reason to revert to older iOS as 4.3.3 can be jailbroken with redsnow 9.6rc17

C. so you can restore using Apple ipsw 4.3.3 and then jb with rs 9.6rc17 or..

D. you can custom restore by creating an already jailbroken 4.3.3 ipsw using snowbreeze 2.7.3

hope this helps explain the answers the other posters have already generously provided.

sn0wbreeze makes jailbroken IPSW's, it cannot jailbreak after the restore/update process. use redsn0w to jailbreak your iPod touch on 4.3.3 using the links given above ^^ by @knightz4u

If you're talking about undoing an update, i.e. going back to the firmware version pre update, then yes it can be done.....but, you need to have shsh's for the downgrade
