The Spirit Jailbreak is finally live.
Comex has released the much awaited Spirit jailbreak to jailbreak iPhone OS 3.1.3, iPhone OS 3.1.2 for all iPhones (including iPhone 3GS with updated Boot ROM) and iPod Touches and iPhone OS 3.2 for iPad.
Comex was supposed to release the Spirit jailbreak on Friday but was delayed for couple of days due to the launch of iPad 3G so that they had enough time to take a backup of the SHSH blobs.
The Spirit jailbreak is available for Mac OS X and Windows users.
Here are some details about the Spirit jailbreak:
Spirit is an untethered jailbreak for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch on the latest firmwares.
Spirit is not a carrier unlock. So you won't be able to unlock your iPhone.
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.)
Here are the requirements of the Spirit jailbreak:
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.
You can download the jailbreaking tool using this link.
Please remember that jailbreaking your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch could void its warranty. So please proceed with caution. It is always a good idea to take a backup of your iPhone before you hack it, refer to this post for more details. iPad users need to be more careful as some packages in Cydia, are not designed for iPad, might screw up your system and require you to restore.
As always, if you give it a shot, let us know how it goes.
Thanks everyone for the tip!
