MuscleNerd of the evad3rs’ team has advice jailbreakers to avoid upgrading to iOS 7.0.6. However, he has said that they will try to release a new version of evasi0n7 for iOS 7.0.6 as the security fix appears to be critical.
Same advice as last time! Stay away from 7.0.6 if jailbroken, and we'll update evasi0n7 if possible (this sounds like an important fix!)
