With the arrival of iOS 7.1, Apple has patched the vulnerabilities used by Evasi0n7 to jailbreak iOS devices. We have warned our followers to stay away from the latest software in order to keep enjoying Cydia, but looks like a lot of the users out there have mistakenly or accidentally updated their devices to iOS 7.1 and have lost the jailbreak with no downgrade options available.
But that doesn’t necessarily means iOS 7.1 is impossible. There are jailbreakers out there that are already using jailbroken devices on the latest version. One of them is iH8sn0w, who has confirmed this to one of his follower on Twitter.
@NGeary14 well my 4S is jailbroken on 7.1 atm.

A week ago, Winocm, an active member of the jailbreak community who is ready to join Apple in coming months as an intern, showed a video of iOS 7.1 jailbreak on his iPhone 4 device.
So far these are the only two confirmed possible iOS 7.1 jailbreak news. Other than these two claims, there are many websites claiming to have an iOS 7.1 jailbreak which are nothing more than a scam.
This doesn’t mean they are going to make it public as the jailbreak these days usually require a lot of work in order to fully complete and package it before handing it out to the public.
There is another possibility that despite some ha3kers having a complete or incomplete jailbreak solution for iOS 7.1, will continue to keep their found vulnerabilities for future use. Obviously, there will be more people who would want them to work on the future iOS 8 jailbreak, instead of throwing out iOS 7.1 untethered jailbreak to the public.
