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.x is not jailbreakable, except an unsupported tethered iPhone 4 jailbreak.
Restoring or updating will update your device to iOS 7.1.1 and remove your jailbreak. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 7.1.x to 7.0.x.

You can jailbreak as it is on 4.2.1 using either Greenpois0n rc6.1 or Redsn0w 0.9.6rc18, but the latter is a far better tool, if you want to go to 4.3.3 and use jailbreakme, then you will need to have 4.3.3 shsh's, do you have those?

You will be asked to browse to (select) a copy of the relevant 4.2.1 firmware, you may already have a copy on your computer, check the FAQ for it's location for your OS, if your on OSX Lion then the 'Library' folder is now hidden. If you don't have a copy of the 4.2.1 firmware then you can get a copy from here
