  • 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.

      Installed sbsettings on ipad 64gb, rebooted and now my icons are small, backround black and my dock looks like an iphone dock, small and stuck in bottom left corner. Cant uninstall becuase the manage button or any of the other bottom buttons in cydia are not working now. Time for a restore...

      For those needing a mirror:
      MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

      Has Windows + Mac OS X.

      spiritjb.com is probably dead now, just too many iPod users grabbing the files.

      Those who are getting the errors:

      People are reporting restoring, then jailbreaking works.

      Run Spirit.exe in Win98 Compatibility Mode (Right click Spirit.exe, Properties, Compatibility, Win98)

      And finally updating iTunes.

      Good luck!

      Oh by the way, after you Jailbreak, the software changes to "QUIT" but if you hit the button it re-jailbreaks it again.. so just click the "X" to quit, not the QUIT button. =]

      Install respring before anything. If your ipad turns into phone mode, respring and all will go back to normal
