    He wants to know if the device was updated OTA or through iTunes

    Follow this. One of two things is true: It was updated via OTA or it was updated via iTunes.

    If it was updated via OTA, you can't jailbreak it and it has a rather large security hole. You want to fix this. It'll never be jailbreakable at 7.x unless it's updated to 7.1 and a jailbreak is released for 7.1. There's no benefit to remain at its current iOS. If it gets into the boot loop, just DFU and restore. Not only does it clean up the security issue, it moves the phone into the only state it might be jailbroken at a later date.

    If it was updated via iTunes, the jailbreak will succeed and you can use tweaks to mitigate the security issue.

    Either way, you don't want to remain in the current state. Why would you care which of the two states it is in?
