Just released; Spirit Jailbreak for the iPad and latest iPhone OS.
- Activated iPhone/iPad
- iTunes v9.x.x
- Spirit Jailbreak Application
Note: Before running this program, be sure to backup your SHSH blobs. Nothing should happen, but it is better to be safe and have them- just in case!
I will focus on the iPad jailbreak as my iPhone is still jailbroken at 3.1.2 and I have seen no reason to upgrade.
Download the Spirit program, connect your iPad/iPhone to the PC via USB cable.
Either wait for the device to sync to iTunes or cancel the sync.
Run the Spirit program and click ‘Jailbreak’
In a few seconds, you should see a ‘Restore in Process’ message on the iPad screen, a ‘Jailbreak succeeded!’ message in Spirit.
The device will reboot.
On reboot you will see a multi-color screen and a progress bar. After this is done, the iPad will return to normal- but now with a Cydia icon:
There is an updated version of Cydia to fit the larger screen of the iPad:
If get an error code c000005 (which I was under Windows 7 x64) when trying to use jailbreak, the Spirit site indicates that the program should be run in Windows 98 compatibility mode:
Make sure to change the default root password on your jailbroken device! Instructions can be found on the Cydia main screen under ‘Root Password How-To’. (Note: The current iPhone ‘Terminal’ program does not run on the iPad; I am sure and updated version is soon to be released).
Now I am just waiting for an updated Winterboard for 3.2! :)
