  • RELEASE - The iPad is Jailbroken, Spirit
    The iPad jailbreak is released. Spirit holds the keys to your iPad you've been waiting for. Multiple download links are at the bottom of this post.

    comex is accepting donations for this release, so click the donate button below to help him out. This is comex's official PayPal account - be careful clicking any donate buttons ANYWHERE for Spirit other than here or on SpiritJB.com.

    Some info, from comex's site:

    What's Spirit?
    • Spirit is an untethered jailbreak for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch on the latest firmwares.
    • Spirit is not a carrier unlock.
    • If you currently are using a tethered jailbreak, you have to restore to use Spirit. Do not upgrade if you use an unlock on an iPhone 3G or 3GS. (You can, however, restore to 3.1.2 if you have SHSH blobs for that version.)
    • Any iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch on firmware 3.1.2, 3.1.3, or 3.2.
    • An activated device: one not stuck on the Connect to iTunes or Emergency Call screen.
    • Any version of iTunes 9 (including 9.1.1).

    Note: On iPad, all this is still sort of beta. Some packages in Cydia, not designed for iPad, might screw up your system and require you to restore. Be careful. (And no, Cydia's appearance is not final.)
    Please everyone, there's a TON of packages in Cydia, report any serious issues you see with any on the iPad, the more community help we get here, the faster everything can be updated to be both iPhone/iPod touch and iPad compliant/safe. There is much work to be done still to get the entire jailbreak community up and smooth on an iPad - for instance, WinterBoard doesn't work on iPad yet. But good ol' OpenSSH sure does.

    Using Spirit is INCREDIBLY easy. We've put together a guide here, but you really don't even need a guide.... I mean... there's ONE button. Good job, comex.

    EDIT: NOTE: If you're getting error code c0000005, apparently setting compatibility mode to Windows 98 allows Spirit to work.

      No. Blackra1n alters the installed kernel on tethered devices in a way that's not easily repaired. You must restore first before running spirit on a tethered jailbroken device. Were working on a way to fix it to allow this, but it will take some time. Until then you MUST restore first

      [QUOTE=cheezeweezle;5224803]do you have the latest update of itunes? i'm guessing that's your problem

      I just ended up unchanging the compatibility option and it worked.

      If anyone is still having issues with Spirit not running cause of Itunes error of not having the proper version of 9.0, get this. It will work and fix it.

      Tried jailbreaking my 3GS 3.1.3 on OSX Snow and it went stuck on the pretty art screen with the progress bar. Left it for 10min and I still had that circle loading thingy.

      I eventually held down power and home to reset the iPhone, and iPhone wouldn't boot, stuck on Apple screen, so I'm now restoring a fresh 3.1.3 firmware, will try again once is done

      Anyone have any ideas why this would of happened?

      if I already jailbroke my late model 2nd gen ipod touch with blackra1n can I run spirit to make it untethered or would I have 2 restore first?

      Restore first is suggested. Never good to stack jailbreaks.

      i would image that my last iTunes backup has them.... but i JB 5 minutes before i walked out the door. So i won't be able to verify that until i get home.
