We saw a video a few days back in which Geohot performed an untethered jailbreak for iPhone 3.1.3. This will most probably also work on the iPhone 3.2 firmware for iPad. In the meanwhile, another iPhone hacker by the name of comex released another video, which showed off untethered userland (browser based) jailbreak for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. This new userland jailbreak of iPhone 3.1.3 by comex has now been given a name – say hello to “Spirit”, an untethered userland jailbreak for iPhone.
Spirit is based on a exploit, which is similar to the one found by hackers at the Pwn2Own contest. It will potentially work on every iPhone running 3.1.3 firmware with the new bootrom, and hopefully with the iPad as well. “Spirit” has also been confirmed as authentic by MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev-Team. While no ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) has been given, it is expected to be out once Apple rolls out a new firmware update for iPhone and iPod touch users.
