I downloaded Spirit earlier to jailbreak my iPod Touch 3G. The firmware version is 3.1.2.
I downloaded Spirit, opened it in Windows 98/ME compatibility mode, as my laptop OS is Windows 7, which is incompatible with Spirit. It opened fine, detected my iPod through the cable, and gave the jailbreak option. Great! Or so I thought.
I clicked Jailbreak, and it gave the Jailbreaking message. My iPod shut itself down, and turned on seconds later, as Spirit announced that the jailbreak was complete. My iPod then went on to what appeared to be a loading screen, with a grey bar filling up with white, on top of an orange-y background. The ordinary iPod loading circle was sitting on top of this.
My iPod wasn't connected to the internet at the time. Before the bar was even 30% full, the screen disappeared, and the ordinary iPod home screen appeared. I assumed that the Jailbreak had occured, and searched through my springboard, checking every page for Cydia, but it wasn't there. I googled the problem, and some other people had had Cydia not appear on their springboard, but appear in search, so I checked in the iPod search, but it wasn't there either.
I tried using Spirit a couple of times, even changing the compatibility mode, trying XP, 98/ME, 95 and NT, but it didn't make a difference.
Is my iPod jailbroken or not? And if it is, where is Cydia?
Is it possible that me not having my iPod connected to the internet via WiFi has caused this? I didn't try it connected, because I currently don't have WiFi at home. I don't want to try jailbreaking with any other programs in case it somehow causes damage by jailbreaking a device which is already jailbroken.
Any solutions are welcome, however I have quite low bandwidth, which means it takes a very long time to download anything, so I'd prefer a solution which doesn't involve downloading any additional software if at all possible.
Thanks in advance!

If you can't diagnosis the issue, you've got a couple options to try. Jailbreakme.com or redsn0w or blackra1n
It probably isn't jb if Cydia isn't there.

9.1.3, I think. It's definitely not 9.2 though, if that's what you're thinking.
Also, I've noticed a slight slowing up of my iPod since last night. Could this be caused by Spirit?

I considered it, but I opened it on my laptop first, and my anti-viral software has marked it as a bad site, so I wasn't sure about it.

Well iPhones don't really get web-related viruses so if you opened it in your Safari on your iPhone then it wouldve been fine anyway. It's a good jb...

There are some iOS viruses. And if a site is designed to be viewed on an iPhone, it's more likely that one of those viruses will be there instead of somewhere else.
Still, I reckon it's pretty safe too.
Thanks for helping!

I've yet to see any attack on an idevice aside from the Rick roll crap which is via SSH for those who haven't changed the password from default. Aside from that, I'd be interested to know if these iOS viruses.

How can I jailbreak my iPod touch 4.2.1 3G plzz help

You can jailbreak it with Redsn0w 0.9.6b6 with a stock 4.2.1 firmware. It will be tethered.
If you have SHSHs, you can check with TinyUmbrella, you may downgrade to 4.1 and still use Redsn0w to jailbreak and have untethered.
If you have further questions and are serious about proceeding, feel free to ask.

If the guy can't even figure out how to begin jailbreaking, maybe it isn't for him.

It's not figuring out that's the issue, it's actually listening to people giving the solution and following through. Looks like he just keeps posting randomly everywhere without waiting for a response.

Might need a ban if he isn't going to respond to my response to his question.

Why not just delete his/her account?
01-18-2011, 10:03 AM #20
Because it isn't that simple.
