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.

My old iPhone 3G has had the sim slot burn up. I got a different SIM from AT&T and the phone still reports No Sim. Thus, I cannot activate in iTunes post restore. Hacktivating with a jailbreak for some reason interferes with XCode. Is there a way to skip/spoof the activation in iTunes without doing a jailbreak?

You can try and use SAM (check our FAQ for details) to remove the hacktivation, not sure if you can activate afterwards using SAM also but it's worth a try, if re-activating with SAM doesn't work, then there is another way, add the repo http://cmdshft.ipwn.me/apt/ and the install Push Doctor, this should install a unique set of activation push certificates.

Run redsn0w on it, but don't check any of the options. That should hacktivate it.

I'm not sure that'll work, but it's worth a shot.
