Spirit Jailbreak Now Available for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch

Spirit The Spirit jailbreak has been released. It is an untethered jailbreak for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. The jailbreak is available for both the PC and Mac. Below is some basic info about the jailbreak. For more information and the download links, check out Spirit’s website.

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.)

* 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).
* Syncing with iTunes before trying this highly recommended.

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.)

  1. Can we SSH into the iPad?

  2. I just tried it on my iPad 3.2, and the wheel has been spinning now for over five minutes.

    Any suggestions

  3. Geowarrior says

    Worked great on my iPhone 3GS

  4. Wheel is currently spinning. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  5. Whatever, this just messed up my phone. Wheel spun for 10 minutes. Obviously doesn’t work for 3.1.3 on 5.11.07. Phone doesn’t turn on now, stuck on the Apple screen.

    • You cannot use custom firmware with Spirit, it won’t work. Spirit only works on a cleanly restored device on 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 with Apple firmware.

  6. Got it to work. Jut make sure iTunes doesn’t try to sync the phone. YAY!!!

    • hey i wanna ask you how can i Jailbreak my new ipod touch 3.1.3?
      if you know let me know emil me the new one thanks bye

  7. Finally now my GF can stop freaking out (she had tethered JB)

    Not working, I knew I shouldn’t have tried it. Messed my phone up too. Not to mention my virus scanner has found two viruses the spirit.exe file and another one in the cache.

    contained a virus or unwanted program ‘TR/Dropper.Gen’ [trojan]

    Both spirit.exe and the file above are showing ‘TR/Dropper.Gen’ [trojan]

  9. Worked hreat on my Iphone 3Gs using firmware 3,1,3
    Well Done People!

  10. Worked for my iPhone 3G & 3Gs 3.1.3, iPad 3.2 via OSX. Pretty happy even though not many og the jailbreak apps will work yet with the iPad. Just seeing Cydia makes me smile.

    • What do you mean when you say 3.2 via OSX. I tried it on my iPad 3.2, and just the spinning wheel.

    • I meant that I installed the jailbreak successfully using an Apple Mac computer, not the PC. My iPad has both Backgrounder and Categories on it now. Keep in mind that those jailbreak apps do not take advantage of the screen size yet. These are things the 4.0 OS will resolve for me. It may be a tougher decision to jailbreak in the future. ;)

    • Thanks Kraytn,

      I’m also on a Mac. I’ve tried twice now and each time I get the spinning wheel. I’ll have to restore again. I don’t understand why it won’t work for me.

  11. Great News….Now if only people that would read things through would stop posting that it did not work for them or complaining…

    Take it for what it is…free stuff….

  12. worked perfectly fine for 3gs 3.1.3…

  13. Hi, I downloaded Spirit but my antivirus (Avira) is showing that it’s a virus (Trojan). It’s a false positive? I downloaded Blackra1n and Avira didn’t show any message…

  14. New version out to fix camera roll deletion

    • Iyfhfdtd says

      Yea I thought it was my sbsetting which was my first app I downloaded. After that I lost some apps and my camera roll was deleted. :-/ so I guess it wasn’t sbsettings but spirit itself.

  15. Avira Antivirus flagged this as a Trojan, be careful out there kids!

  16. I lost all 200+ pictures and videos I had on my phone after using Spirit. I know this was recently fixed in an update…but does anyone kno whow to get them back…. or are they gone for good :'(

    • unless you backed up your phone recently with that amount of pictures,if not,no way you can get them from my understanding.

  17. anthoiphone says

    What is the difference between tethered and unthetered?
    I have a 3gs with ATT and jailbrake. I use MyWi for internet sharing. Can I do Spirit? I am in 3.2.0 and have Cydia SSH.

    • Tethered is when if you manually shut down your ipod, or battery runs completely dead. You would need to hook it up to the pc and jailbrake it again.

      Whereas untethered can be shut down etc and turned on again without a jailbreak.

    • Thank you for asking this question, and Connor, thank you for answering! Sometimes it’s difficult for us new guys to pick up on the lingo.

      Just to be clear…
      Tethered means you have to jailbreak every time you reboot
      Untethered means the jailbreak is persistent and only has to be done once.
      …Am I correct?

  18. The update doesn’t trigger Avira Antirivus either. \o/

  19. After I jailbroke my iPad and ran Cydia the home screen looks funny, I loaded respring to fix the problem but every time that I have to reboot the iPad the screen go back to crazy again and I have to run respring to fix it. I can’t even put my icons the way I want because if I have to reboot they get all moved around. Is it normal to have to run respring every time after reboot. Any help would be greatful. Just want to make sure that all is good and that this is normal and others are having to deal with this..

  20. after jailbreak on my ipod touch 3.1.3 1G i cant use file system :(

  21. no problems for me..yet yes it does contain a virus but the virus dies before the jailbreak is finished..and if the virus lives….good luck your ipod will be bricked before the spirit even says finished 50/50 chance!mine worked:-D
