      To bad there isn't a 5.12.01 unlock coming with this....

      Tho, Jobs is really good at placing his baseband updates, he knows the unlockers will wait to release until the new iPhone is out, creating even more hyper for the new phone...

      I'm thinking you have to go to www.jailbreakme.com and install apptap. Old school ftw.

      haha i was sooo tempted to download black ra1n at the apple store and jail break all the iphones at the store since they're still running 3.1.2. Either that or swap my 3.1.3 iphone out with one of theirs.

      Due to this news I am in good spirits.

      Maybe Spirit is the spirit of the default iphone dying.

      Remember, the point of the spirit delay is to allow time to get SHSH blobs, especially on the 3G iPad. spirit will support:
      - all models of iPhone and iPod touch, 3.1.2 and 3.1.3
      - both models of iPad, 3.2
      You don't need a SHSH blob to jailbreak, but you do need it to restore or downgrade if something goes wrong or you accidentally upgrade. For 3.1.2 (required for blackra1n, etc.), Apple is no longer handing out blobs, but for 3.1.3 and 3.2, you can still get blobs-- and should do so ASAP!

      I'm gonna stay up to 1 or 2am GMT, but I'm guessing it'll still be a day behind in the States? Ah well, here's to being hopeful!

      "What time??? Lol. Need to know when to set my alarm over here in uk!"

      The delay was it seems is that comex wanted to give those that bought the iPad 3G version chance to activate them, there is no hacktivation with spirit. The fear is that Apple will patch this jailbreak very, very quickly - within days. The Guys didn't want people with shiny new iPads activating with a patch available that could accidently be upgraded to leaving lots of people screwed - lets face it who many cry for help are there about from those that accidently upgrade to iPhone 3.1.3 and had no jailbreak?

      Based on this they could give new Ipad owners the day tomorrow the day to activate and release the JB in the evening usa time so many of us in the uk that arn't prepared to consume gallons of coffe red bull cocktails will probably get it sunday morning.

      cjzielie

      no, don't upgrade but ensure you have your 3.1.2 shsh blobs backed up either through cydia, firmware umbrella or autoshsh in case of probs later on

      i just think were giving apple too much credit here when it comes to patching stuff very quickly. I Understand they will patch it at some point but do you honestly think they will release something a patch/upgrade on Monday or Tuesday. How fast in the past has, Exploit/Jailbreak come out and Apple responded with a patch/upgrade to prevent it. To me just sounds like paranoia to me.

      Reading between the lines with his comments on twitter I very much doubt it will be released tomorrow.

      confuciousmobil - If that's the only delay, why wait? Apple won't release anything over the w/e so today, tomorrow or Sunday will make no difference.


      Comex - don't be so sure :<

      confuciousmobil -Have Apple ever released at the w/e?They also don't stop signing old FW right away. Releasing b4 international ipad release is wrong

      I'm hoping our very own stealth bravo is on a wind up with this one

      StealthBravo @comex - Wait for international release

      I will be watching this situation closely. I have not bought an iPad yet just for this exact reason (just waiting for an announced jailbreak to be released). But if spirit IS released I will have a decision on my hands. I doubt I will upgrade my phone to 4.0 because everything that the new FW offers, most JBroken phones already have been using and the new iPhone has nothing special I want either.

      So I hope spirit is released so I can have a good excuse for getting an iPad.

      Last year a sms exploit was demonstrated, Apple issued a patch within 24 hours.

      cjzielie, if you have a jailbroken 3gs you should get a message in green at the top of the page when you open cydia, if you do your blob is backed up on sauriks server for future use. If you want a local copy then visit iH8sn0w.com | Jailbreak your iPod touches and iPhones download autoshsh rc2 and follow the instructions but basically you need an internet connection and java installed, get the connect to itunes image on your iPhone (turn iPhone off, hold home button, plug synce lead into usb port) then run autoshsh and click grab my blobs. It will do 2 things - send a copy of you blob to sauriks server then open a save dialog to staore a copy on your computer in case saurks server ever goes down.
