  • 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.

      Jailbreaking and unlocking are two different things...Your iphone 3G has always been jailbreakable (using the latest version of redsnow) even on 3.1.3 and updated to firmware 05.12.01.....unlocking is what hasn't been possible just yet

      3.1.3 3G iPhones always had a jailbreak. You've been waiting for no reason.

      I think all this hype is pure bull ****. I do not think they anything in the works. I believe to be all smoke screen and hot air and nothing more than that. If it is not true then prove me wrong by releasing it.
