mirrors are needed already :p
mediafire mirror for the windows version
the win98 compatibility worked for my friend (i have no idevice now :P )
proswitcher isnt working on ipad
(It doesn't unlock, just jailbreaks.)
Can I use Cydia apps, or do you have to run blackra1n for that?
Device: iPad Computer iMac running latest OS and latest itunes
steps I took:
turned of iPad by holding power and Home button..left iPad OFF
Connected to computer and turned on Spirit and turned on iPad. It would not recognize as connected at first
turned on itunes thought maybe had i waited a little then spirit would have eventually recognized iPad connected
iPad was recongnized by Spirit and ran spirit. After it said jailbreak complete I manually rebooted by holding down power and home button at same time. The ipad went into the jailbreak mode again it seemed because the screen showed the Spirit program running Jailbreak. Then when done Spirit was able to roboot me successfully this time.
I confirm it does work on iPad and it will erase your photos as warned.
Hope this helps someone.www.backtype.com/wolfmore
My mam bought an iPhone 3gs on vodafone, I am using this now tethered jailbroken and unlocked on 3.1.2 with my vodafone sim. If I use spirit and jailbreak the iPhone on 3.1.3 is there a need for unlock since I am also on vodafone? Basically is an iPhone locked down to ANY SPECIFIC CARRIER SIM? or one specific sim? (all vodafone sims?)
Any help will be greatly appreciated and many thanks to those behind Spirit.
Here is a step by step way of jailbreaking your iphone running 3.1.2, 3.1.3 and ipad 3.2
download for Windows or MAC
For Windows Users Strictly:
Right Click on the file and in the compatibility mode set it to Windows 98/ME
For MAC Users:
You are fine how the file itself is.
Now open the downloaded Spirit Jailbreak File (Should be an exe file)
Connect you iphone, ipod or ipad:
Close itunes and press the button jailbreak
The Process of jailbreak would take no more then 10 seconds
Now you have you i device jailbroken!
I did it for my self twice just to try last night as soon as this jailbreak was released! Mine is iphone 3.1.3 and it worked very good! No problems at all!
May God Bless Comex!
works fine with win7 64-bit
Jb my 3.1.2 with new iboot
Thank you spirit team!
If you have 3.1.3 installed then this doesn't unlock your 3GS but just jailbreaks so pretty much you guys have to wait for a new jailbreak tool that unlocks baseband 5.12.01.
Good work Comex or whoever made this!
I believe that the glitch which made the network access unavailable came from one Cydia app.
This far the best jailbreak program...so clean and smooth...like an ice cream... like sailing in a quite river....!!! Thanks again..
the funny and ugly Apple greed is that their iphone is by law sold unlocked in Europe. We should force Apple to do the same thing here in the US..if not you never own your phone..but you lease it indefinitely...
On XP and didnt need to run in compatibility mode.
you have to run on compatibility mod
I can now get on and install all my Cdia stuff I missed so dearly.
Step 1: Back up Iphone in Itunes as you will lose the pictures on your camera roll
Step 2: Right click on Spirit. Click compatibility tab. Select to run in Windows 98 mode and click run as administrator. Click Apply then OK.
Step 3: Connect Iphone to your computer and close Itunes if it comes up.
Step 4: Double click on Spirit.
Step 5: Execute
Step 6: Phone will reset and you will see a colorful screen for about 5 seconds. DO NOT TOUCH YOUR IPHONE
Step 7: Enjoy your Jail Break.
Which Cydia app was it? I too am having some network issues since the jailbreak. Nothing as extreme as you however mail is taking longer to synch.
For those that are losing your camera roll... it says right on the site there is a problem with this. Please make sure to read the site before you do anything.
For network issues. Reset the iphone and network settings. Should fix the problem for you.
on a side note my 3gs actually seems snappier post JailBreak, go figure...
If JB is successful, are all contacts, Photo Library (not Camera Roll), ringtones, etc. intact or do I need to resync to get all this stuff back on the phone? I guess what I'm asking is does JB wipe out anything?
Also, if I use Cydia to download apps, do they get backed up with future iTunes syncs?
Tthanks to all for any help with this!!!!!
If you want a full 3.1.3 jailbreak, you would have to have one of the older 3gs phones. or wait till OS4 comes out./
Geohot explained ever since he released blackra1n if you wanted to access your files you need to download afc2add from cydia. All the other jailbreak tools in the past would have this already installed with cydia, but geohot decided not to have it included with the jailbreak and had you download it instead.
