I just received my 5S, backing up my 4S with 5.1.1 JB.

Going to JB it. Any advise?

You'll want to use Pangu, which to my knowledge, is the only jailbreak available for the latest version of iOS 7. It supports jailbreak for iOS 7.1 through 7.1.x. You can read more about that in this thread on "Can I upgrade to iOS 7 and run Pangu jailbreak?" The actual Pangu jailbreak can be downloaded here. Of course, any questions, feel free to ask. I'm not well versed in Pangu, but plenty of folks here would be able to help you.

Don't worry; we have a few people here who aren't sure what they're doing, either.

I've been fighting with activating the stinking phone. I guess becuase I never update from 5.1.1, when I attempted to restore from a back up it would not take. So all my text messages are stuck on my 4S, i guess I could update it and back it up and then restore on the 5S.

But, im thinking after I JB I can transfer the messages over... now for the real fun.

So far so good, pangu did the trick. Only 2 or 3 of my cydia apps do not work or have not been updated to work yet ( message locker & code scrambler.. message2pdf too)

Some of the cydia stuff for the wifi icon does not work

Can someone tell me how to get my text messages backed up to this phone from my 4S. Its still JB on 5.1.
