    Spirit2Pwn is Not Written by GoJohnnyBoi

    UPDATE: Thanks to GoJohnnyBoi for filling us in. Yes, we we are reporting this as "fake", but what's happened here is a poor choice in words for a description. msft.guy and GoJohnnyBoi "wrote the open source code to flash firmware images into nor, which is possibly what the author of this package meant".

    Alright guys, earlier I posted about Spirit2Pwn, which has now been deemed "fake" or rather, unofficial. If you come across this app, please note that even though it says GoJohnnyBoi created it, he DID NOT. Spirit2Pwn is a script that will flash your nor files in order to be able to upgrade from 3.1.x to iOS 4.0. Please note that this should NOT be used on new bootroms as it will crash the phone.

    While the tool itself is not exactly "fake" per say, but it is however wrongly credited and borrows Apple code, and therefore we have removed any links to it. There have been users confirming it works, however we want to protect GoJohnnyBoi from any accusations.

    Read on through the comments, some of which Johnny has posted to inform us exactly what is going on. We have yet to hear comment from the developer of this script.

    If your need to have spirit compatiblity, try SnowBreeze 1.6.2, which was recently updated for Spirit compatibility.

    You've been warned.

    I'll leave you guys to discuss this amongst yourselves. Thanks to GoJohnnyBoi for clearing this up.

      You want? So are willing to try anything just to see if it "might" work?
      No wonder people get viruses/trojans/ripped off
      Some people just don't seem to care about security and then are surprised when things go wrong...

Notonly is it fake, it's illegal for containing copyrighted code, and written off under my name.
      you need to track down the "dev" (if you can even call him/her that) and rape them....

      Besides releasing the script under somebody's else nick, the coder's alright :P Script worked for me. Now I have an iPhone 3GS 16GB on 4.0. Thought it'd be stuck on 3.1.3 till there's a new RedSn0w or something.
