  • 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.

      Is it possible to get the categories windows to launch full screen rather than in "iphone" mode? I tried the full screen plist hack but that didn't seem to work for categories.

      You will want to manually do it, the cydia one is off right now!

      Hey everyone. I put up a post but no one seems to be responding to it so I'll ask it here. After JB on the iPad, I have sime apps that need updating through iTunes. I try to do it over wifi and after loading for awhile, it tells me that I need to connect to iTunes to update through that. Tried to do that and I get an error and it wont complete. Seems like I won't ever be able to update at this point. Any suggestions?

      Thanks and appreciate the JB!

      I know this may sound like a stupid question since it is still in beta 2 but can it be done at now or even possible with Spirit, which only says 3.1.3 and iPad. CAN iphone OS 4.0 beta 2 be jailbroken???

      same here all pics got deleted too, they need to let us know to backup pics before JB'n. Also Cydia only tells me unable to connect, is this normal?

      Suggestion: Use AptBackup before restoring your 3Gs (if you have a tethered jailbreak), and restore virtually all your Cydia apps in 1 step after using Spirit. Been waiting a year for this, AWESOME!!
