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.

Hi, for 2 days I've been trying to jailbreak my iPhone4 5.1 on my Mac. I have updated the iTunes to 10.6, downloaded the latest version of redsnOw. When Redsn0w opens, a window pops up telling me iTunes has incomplete libraries: Failed to load required functions: CFPropertyListCreateData and CFPropertyListCreatewithData. Tells me to be sure I have installed the latest iTunes (which I have). Then when I put my device in DFU mode, redsn0W says that it has failed. But iTunes is detecting it fine!
I've done jailbreaks before, so I know how to enter DFU. Can somebody please help! Thank you

If you're using Mac OS X 10.5.x or earlier, you'll want 0.9.10b6b.

I found the solution!!! It had to do with my Mac's OS. Worked perfectly!!!

Yes, that's what we said. :) It's generally a good idea to get redsn0w from the Dev Team Blog instead of random other blogs, but I'm glad it worked.
