Spirit – the untethered userland jailbreak for iPhone 3.1.3 and iPad 3.2 has finally arrived. For the end user, Spirit looks and works (in fact Spirit is easier!) very much like Geohot’s blackra1n. It is available for both Windows and Mac OS X.
Spirit is a software tool which can jailbreak (not unlock) all iPhone’s (iPhone (Edge), iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS) and iPod touches (iPod touch 2G and 3G) running on the firmware version 3.1.3/3.1.2, and iPad and iPad 3G on firmware 3.2 – untethered.
IMPORTANT: Make sure that you have your SHSH files saved. You can jailbreak without saving SHSH files but you wont be safe once Apple patches the exploit used by Spirit. Follow the instructions posted here to save your SHSH blobs.
Step 1: Download and install the latest version of iTunes (download link given below).
Step 2: You will need to be on the official iPad OS 3.2 (or iPhone 3.2) for iPad. Download links are given below.
Step 3: Download Spirit for Windows or Mac (download link at the end of the post).
Step 4: Connect iPad with your computer, Run “Spirit” and then Click on “Jailbreak”:
Note for Windows 7/Vista Users (OS X users should skip to Step 5): Change the “Compatibility mode” to “Windows 98 / Windows Me” by right clicking on “Spirit.exe”, and then click on “Properties”. This can be seen in the screenshot below. [Thanks to xeon82 for this tip via twitter]
Also check: “Run this program as an administrator” option on the same window.
Step 5: Let the app do its thing and wait for the app to show “Jailbreak Complete!” message. At this point, wait for the iPad to automatically reboot.
Step 6: Voila! You should now have a fully jailbroken iPad on iPad OS 3.2. “Cydia” should be there in the list of applications on your iPad.
