Another p0sixspwn developer iH8sn0w has now confirmed that iOS 7.1 can be jailbroken. He told one of his follower that his iPhone 4S running iOS 7.1 is jailbroken. iH8sn0w has also developed other popular jailbreak tools such as Sn0wbreeze.
@NGeary14 well my 4S is jailbroken on 7.1 atm.

He hasn’t shared any further details, so it is not clear if the jailbreak is a tethered or an untethered jailbreak like the one demonstrated by winocm on an iPhone 4. It is also not clear if the jailbreak will work on newer iOS devices like the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPad Air and the non-Retina and Retina iPad mini.
However, please don’t expect the jailbreak to be released anytime soon, as he has also tweeted that he doesn’t plan to work on the iOS 7.1 jailbreak.
@NGeary14 I don’t have any intentions of working on a 7.1/8 jb atm.

He also notes that there is no public jailbreak for iOS 7.1 available currently, so any website saying so are just a scam. There are quite a few websites that claim to have a jailbreak for iOS 7.1. Please avoid them as they’re a scam. We’ll be the first to let you know when a jailbreak is released.
pod2g of evad3rs had also said that they won’t be working on a jailbreak for iOS 7.1. So looks like the hackers are planning to keep the exploits for iOS 8, the major update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, which is expected to be released later this year.
As always, we’ll let you know if there is any further updates on the jailbreak, so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or join our Facebook Fan page, follow us on Twitter, add us to your circles on Google+ or subscribe to our RSS feed.
