The Spirit Jailbreak released today works with Windows and Mac, but the Cydia software on it is buggy. I’ve tested it on iPhone, iPad WiFi, iPad 3G + WiFi, and iPod touchand it works perfectly! It jailbreaks in seconds. The Spirit jailbreak download has got to be one of the easiest and quickest jailbreak software since blackra1n.
If you’re using Windows, you may run in to an error with the Spirit Jailbreak software. See my Spirit failed to jailbreak (error code: c0000005) post. It’s important to note that many applications in Cydia may not work, and some may even give you the Black Screen of Death, requiring you to restore your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. The Spirit Jailbreak is fully untethered so you won’t need to jailbreak each time you reboot your device. It uses a userland exploit which Apple will be patching soon, so be sure to try it before it’s too late.
The Spirit Jailbreak software for iPhone 3.1.3, iPod touch 3.1.3, and iPad 3.1.3 was originally going to be released on Friday, but it had to be delayed by comex because of the iPad 3G. The Spirit jailbreak uses a userland exploit that Apple can easily patch so enjoy this jailbreak while you can. I’ll post up instructions on how to keep yourself safe from future updates in another post, for now if you get a firmware update from Apple don’t push that update button.
