  • iPad ‘Spirit’ Jailbreak Poised For Release


    At long last, April 30th is here. And scores of Apple fans will finally get their hands on a new iPad today (or ditch their "ancient" WiFi model for a new iPad 3G). But just as eagerly anticipated as the 3G's arrival itself today is the soon-to-be released iPad "Spirit" jailbreak. And when we say soon-to-be released, we mean really soon. As in... maybe today... or tomorrow. But "soon," nonetheless.

    At some point after (don’t ask when!) the iPad 3G is actually in customers’ hands, the first “userland” jailbreak since firmware 1.x will be released by @comex.
    The iPhone Dev Team is poised and ready to roll out the jailbreak to coincide with the iPad 3G's launch this evening. Of course, the Spirit jailbreak was announced by MuscleNerd in what seemed to be about ten minutes after the WiWif-only version of the iPad was first introduced on April 3rd. The iPhone Dev Team, however, opted to hold off on releasing the Spirit jalbreak until all models of the iPad reached consumers. As a result, Apple wouldn't have the occasion to beef up the know OS "weakness."

    In addition, the jailbreak also works on other beloved Apple gadgets. Of course, as any responsible piece of writing would acknowledge, jailbreaking is not for the faint of heart and should only be undertaken by those who know what they're doing and are well aware of the potential risks and consequences - like having your warranty through Apple rendered null and void.

    With the formal unveiling of the iPad 3G today, it's now just a matter of time before untethered jailbreaking descends upon all of our cherished iDevices.

      Later in the day yesterday comex indicated that the delay wouldn't be more than a few days. I expect there to be a release by the end of the weekend.

      comex: ffs, I only said Friday in a reply to someone. Barring surprises in the iPad 3G, the delay is at most a few days. That I can commit to.

      I hope they can hold out until we get it here in the UK...Once this is released, all subsequent purchases will unfortunately come with the updated, and patched firmware.

      Unless I'm wrong (or someone tells me otherwise), it would then probably be impossible for any further storing of the SHSH

      Just recieved my 3g ipad and boy does that black strip look horrible.

      Ill pass that down to my wife. I am very anal to small things like this. Ill stick with my wifi ipad and mywi.

      I did a test a few minutes ago.

      And tethering between built in so difference at all. I am averaging 3.8mbps on both

      By the time it is out in the UK it will only be a couple of weeks off 4.0 and the new iphone.
