  • 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.)
    Requirements
    • 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.

      it should be captured in the instructions, similar to what Geohot did, is to backup and then restore a fresh 3.1.3 firmware. then run the tool. i know it doesn't help you out, but maybe it can help someone else.

      My camera roll is empty but the pics I have assigned to my contacts are still there. Odd.

      The jailbreak with Spirit is, "So easy a caveman can do it!" hahaha

      Thanks again comex and crew.

      Edit:

      I just tried iPhone Explorer to look around my phone and it won't let me select the actual ROOT option on the top. Does anyone have any ideas or know of another program that works with Windows that I can use to explore my phone from a PC?

      all you have to do is restore to your latest back up! i had some wifi issues as well when I was trying to move some files over through fugu but a "network reset" fixed that too, the wifi issue has been known in most of the JB programs but this camera roll wipeness was pretty weird... Still BIG PROPS TO COMEX FOR COMING THREW WITH THE JB.... it was worth the donation

      I know that this is prob a stupid question and I prob know the answer already. Can I enable tethering on my iPhone to tether my mac to be able to use 3g With my iPhone or will the iPhone have to be unlocked to do that?

      Just got to work and saw this amazing update!! I was at the Apple Store yesterday with the decision to buy one or not. It looks like I will be going there after work to get one. The possibility to JBreak and adding the iPad in my car is the ONLY reason I will be buying one.

      In case you guys/gals have not seen it, check out this YouTube video or type "iPad in Car" in the search. When I saw this video, this is the only reason I will be getting an iPad!!

      Esco, you should be able to new enable tethering via cydia packages or modifying some .plist's yourself...

      @Jwharmsby What is a good tethering app to search for on cydia? I had one installed before on my 3gs with 3.1.2 but that is long gone. I think it was the one that AT&T originally used before they discontinued it. will that one work again or should I find a different one.

      This is just like blackra1n in that you must manually install "afc2add" in Cydia in order to access your phone's root folder through USB clients like iphonebrowser.

      There is a thread in iPad General Chat with people reporting what they are finding. I believe the first post is being updated to reflect people's findings.

      Glad to hear yours is working, as that means this can't be anything major...

      Just log in and to my surprise i see a JB for the Ipad and iphone 3GS. Have someone JB theirs already? Have you encounter any issues. Is it worth waiting for the new OS 4.0

      Why are people constantly asking about wether they should JB now or wait for 4.0?

      I mean reall ydoes it make a difference? Your running 3.2 NOW!!
      When 4.0 drops you will upgrade to that.

      You jailbraken TODAY!! will nto hinder your ability to JAILBREAK 4.0 in teh future.

      Stop the stupid questions already. So annoying.

      Plain and simple. I JB'D my iPad 3.2 I will enjoy all the jailbreaking features NOW!! when 4.0 comes out and teh jailbreak is out I WILL DO THE SAME!!

      Move on already
