“Spirit” Jailbreak For iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad Released

The folks over at Spirit have released an untethered jailbreak for the iTouch devices from Apple. The untethered jailbreak is compatible with the iPhone OS 3.1.2, 3.1.3 and 3.2. The untethered jailbreak works only on activated iPod Touch/iPhone and iPads.

The official site has a word of caution for the iPad users saying 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.)

The iPad users are recommended to make a backup before trying out the jailbreak. If things go wrong, the iPad users are supposed to use the backup to restore the device to a working state. The Spirit Jailbreak works only on the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 3GS. The original iPhone users have been left out in the cold.

Please keep in mind that the Spirit jailbreak does not activate your iTouch device(s). Jailbreaking allows you to install 3rd party applications on your iTouch device which have not been approved by Apple.

  • the jailbreak process is harder than you think, especially on newer devices. Apple is trying to stop jailbreaking. They have the possibility to make it "jb proof" but not the ability. It hasn't happened yet, holes have luckily been found and it is likeley that holes will continue to be found but don't swear off the possibility of an un-jailbreakable firmware/ hardware.

    • Bil Syed

      Try This:


      This problem also occurs while trying to jailbreak iPhone using Blackra1n, when running the executable will give you an error saying that ASL.dll is missing as shown in the above screenshot.

      The solution for this is simple, you will need to place the Blackra1n executables in the Apple folder under Common files in Program Files. The folder would be located in the following locations:

      32 Bit
      – C:Program Files/Common Files/Apple/Apple Application Support

      64 Bit – C:Program Files (x86)Common FilesAppleApple Application Support

      Once you copy the blackra1n executable to the above folder, create a shortcut for it on the desktop and double-click it to run it as usual.

      You don’t put the program in

      32-bit :C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support

      64-bit : C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support\

      And thats it! :)
