    Default 3.1.3 3GS Spirit JB
    I just tried it and it was stuck on the colorful screen for about 30 minutes, so I used the Lock+Home button combo. Now when I'm trying to boot it, it's stuck on the Apple logo. Any options besides restoring? I'm using 10.6.3

    I don't think there are any options other than a restore

    It shouldn't happen again, but to be safe I would redownload spirit from spiritjb.com and connect your phone to a different USB port on the computer

    maybe this might have been a reason why. I'm not to sure exactly what backs-up when you back-up an iPhone, but it was previously jailbroken using PwnageTool. I backed up my phone, and I received a new replacement phone from apple because the previous one had some speaker problems. I restored this new phone with the back-up of my previous phone that was jailbroken at the time it was backed-up. Would any of the jailbreak data from my previous phone be in the back-up and affect this jailbreak?

    That "shouldn't" cause any issues

    my suggestion would be to do the restore and before you sync your data from a previous backup from your last phone, run spirit then once its done then allow itunes to sync your backed up data to it. hope this works out for you.

    It is a known issue with the spirit jb. Hard re-boot several times until it works (home + lock), and be patient. I did this 10+ times before successfully booting but now my 3gs is completely jailbroken using spirit and 3.1.3.
