iOS 7.0.5 is Jailbreakable
If you have jailbroken your iPhone or are planning to, Evad3rs tell us that the update to iOS 7.0.5 is safe and the jailbreak will still work with it. If you haven’t yet jailbroken your iPhone, you should not use the OTA method of updating as you will be unable to apply the jailbreak without problems.

At the moment, the current version of Evasi0n supports up to an including iOS 7.0.4 but Evad3rs will be pushing out an update to give it support for 7.0.5. We will tell you as soon as this is released.
At this moment in time, Apple has been unable to patch the exploits used by Evad3rs to build Evasi0n 7. However, that doesn’t mean they won’t do so in the near future, whether it is with another update to iOS 7 or with the release of iOS 7.1, expected in March. If you haven’t yet jailbroken your iPhone, iPod or iPad, the advice is to do so now before these exploits are patched.
Be wary of fake jailbreaks – there are a number of websites set up claiming to be the official Evasi0n site – they are fakes. Please only download your jailbreak from the official site .
