As we said, at the moment (and for a long time still) it is not possible to jailbreak iOS 7.1 because Apple has blocked the exploits that had been found. In addition, with the release of this update Apple has also blocked the signatures of iOS 7.0.6: this means that those who have installed iOS 7.1 on iPhone, iPod and iPad can no longer go back and jailbreak. As a result, it is not possible in any way to downgrade from iOS 7.1 to iOS 7.0.6 or any previous version of iOS.

Only iPhone 4 owners can downgrade from iOS 7.1 to iOS 7.0.6. This smartphone, in fact, has been completely violated by hackers and the only one that allows you to downgrade from iOS 7.1 to iOS 7.0.6 and then return to an old version of iOS after installing iOS 7.1.
