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.

I've tried jailbreaking 5.0.1 and got the same error so I updated to 5.1...tried googling around and can't find any answer that worked.

I'm running redsn0w 9.10b6.

What device? Did you do extras/select ipsw before jailbreak?
