spirit jailbreak JailBreak for iPad is Finally Available!

Finally the jailbreak for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch from the Dev Team is available for download. It’s free and untethered and it’s called “Spirit”. The jailbreak supports every iDevice with firmware version 3.1.2, 3.1.3 or 3.2.

If you have iPhone 3GS or an iPad you should backup your SHSH blobs before using the jailbreak. ECID SHSH or SHSH blob is a unique signature given to every Apple mobile device. When you decide to restore the firmware on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, Apple servers checks this signature.

As you know, if a new firmware is released it becomes impossible to restore the older firmware from iTunes. But Cydia creator tuned up a new server and now it mimics Apple’s verification server and saves your older SHSH blobs so that you can restore back your device to the older firmware. Without having your SHSH blobs saved you may accidentally update new firmware and then you not only lose your jailbreak but also won’t be able to restore the older firmware to re-jailbreak your device.

This is also important because there is a big possibility that Apple will soon find out what exploit is used by the jailbreak and then it will be patched in the form of new firmware.

You can save your SHSH blob in three ways. Here is a guide to make it using AutoSHSH.

  1. Download AutoSHSH. (Latest version is here).
  2. SHSHBlobs JailBreak for iPad is Finally Available!

  3. Start AutoSHSH and plug in you iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad in recovery mode (only one device at a time). Recovery mode launches when you turn off your device and hold down the “Home” button when connecting the USB cable. Then you must see “Connect to iTunes” message and logo on your device.
  4. TS1275 JailBreak for iPad is Finally Available!

  5. In AutoSHSH click on “Grab my SHSH Blobs Automatically”. When the app will grab the signature you must choose whether you want to save it locally or not. Do not forget where you saved the signature. In the end of the procedure AutoSHSH will also upload it to saurik’s server.
  6. SHSHBlobs1 JailBreak for iPad is Finally Available!

If you have some problems with using AutoSHSH to save your blobs, write it in comments or try saurik’s method or Firmware Umbrella instead.

Now, when you saved you SHSH blobs, you can make the jailbreak. It is recommended for you to sync your device with iTunes beforehand. Then use the following guide:

  1. Download “Spirit” (link for Windows, link for Mac OS X).
  2. Plug in your device (it will be instantly recognized).
  3. Hit the “Jailbreak” button.

That’s all!

Additionally here is a video tutorial for jailbreaking:

Please note that Spirit is not a carrier unlock so it won’t allow you to use unauthorized wireless carriers. The jailbreak is also “sort of beta”, so it may be buggy. DevTeam notifies that some apps in Cydia that are NOT designed for iPad may crash your system and require you to restore so be careful.

GeoHot recently posted a small message on twitter. He actually responds to many users who continue to ask him about the ability to run firmware 3.1.3 jailbreak using Blackra1n.

blackra1n 313 GeoHot will not update blackra1n to support firmware 3.1.3

GeoHot has always been a bit reluctant to release new versions for various minor firmware updates. His advice is in fact once again to keep firmware 3.1.2, because the latest one does not have anything interesting.

GeoHot will be certainly back on the scene with the next release of firmware 3.2 in March / April or firmware 4.0 that is expected in July.

iphone os 3.1.3 400x291 Apple Releases iPhone OS 3.1.3

Apple has just released new firmware 3.1.3 (7E18) for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPhone 2G, iPod touch, iPod touch 2G and iPod touch 3G.

The update includes:

  • Improves accuracy of reported battery level on iPhone 3GS
  • Resolves issue where third-party apps would not launch in some instances
  • Fixes bug that may cause an app to crash when using the Japanese Kana keyboard
  • Other security updates (more info)

So this is a minor update, which fixing only the accuracy of the 3GS battery meter and the stability of some third-party app launches. This update is avaliable via iTunes.

New firmware 3.1.3 also introduces a new version of the baseband, the 05.12.01. So if you need unlock do not update! DevTeam also warns us:

If you care about your jailbreak and unlock, don’t update your device – 3G and 3G(S) owners should pay particular attention to this warning.
PwnageTool and redsn0w are not yet compatible with 3.1.3

Experimenters show that the latest version of redsn0w 0.9.2 is able to jailbreak iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G and iPod touch 1G. Just point it at the 3.1.2 IPSW (download here) after doing update or restore to firmware 3.1.3. Sounds like DevTeam will release an updated version of redsn0w that will handle firmware 3.1.3 officially. They say iPod touch 2G with firmware 3.1.3 is also jailbreakable.

Users report that unlock software, blacksn0w and ultrasn0w, doesn;t work with the new baseband.

redsn0w 09b3 400x211 DevTeam releases redsn0w 0.9b3

Redsn0w is a cross-platform jailbreaking, unlocking, and customizing tool for iPhone and iPod Touch. New version redsn0w 0.9b3 supports the latest firmware 3.1.2. The most recent release before this one was redsn0w 0.8, which targeted Apple firmware 3.0/3.0.1.

redsn0w 0.9 beta3 supports:

  • All iPhones and iPod touches except the iPod touch 3G
  • Windows and Mac OSX (x86)
  • Apple firmwares 3.0-3.1.2

When it’s out of beta, it will support the iPod touch 3G, PPC OSX, and Linux.

If you need a carrier unlock, redsn0w will handle iPhone 2G by itself (by installing the BootNeuter utility). For the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS use Cydia after you’re jailbroken to install ultrasn0w (baseband 04.26) or blacksn0w (baseband 05.11).

If you have a late-model iPhone 3GS, or if you have an iPod touch 2G whose serial number begins with “MC” (newer than week 40 of last year), you can use redsn0w to jailbreak but you are currently restricted to “tethered” rebooting. That means you need to connect your device to a computer each time you boot it – so just try no to reboot.

You can download redsn0w 0.9b3 here.

Geohot has posted the first screenshot of his blacksn0w baseband 05.11.07 unlock for the iPhone 3G and 3GS. The unlock which will be run after completing a jailbreak with the blackra1n jailbreak is expected to be released on November 4th.

Warning iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS unlockers, do not upgrade to firmware 3.1.2 using iTunes, if you want to keep your unlock. Baseband cannot be downgraded.

firmware 31 Firmware 3.1 arrives September 17?

Playing with the latest beta software for iPhone, one of iH8sn0w employees (firmware 3.1 beta 3 jailbreak utility), found that the expiry date for latest firmware is September 18.

Firmware 3.1 will be probably released 1 or 2 days before the expiration of the beta. This means that Apple might perform a release during the Apple event in September. However this event is dedicated to the music, so we cannot be sure.

The only certain knowledge is that by the middle of next month we will see either 3.1 beta 4 or 3.1 release.
