    Default [Tutorial] Jailbreaking your iDevice

    Update: Jailbreaking the iPhone or iPod Touch on 4.0 and/or 4.0.1 is even easier.
    Visit jailbreakme.com using your device and use the "slide to jailbreak".
    It's recommended to backup and sync your device to iTunes before attempting to jailbreak.

    What you will need:
    iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad
    Firmware 3.1.2/3.1.3 installed, or 3.2 if you're doing this on the iPad
    iTunes 9 or later

    If you're running a tethered jailbreak, you need to restore your device.
    Read more about restoring here.


    Important! This jailbreak is not a carrier unlock!

    Download Spirit by clicking here.
    Spirit is also available from spiritjb.com, but you can only retrieve the latest version, 1.1, there.

    Connect your iDevice to your computer via USB cable.
    iTunes is likely to open. If that's the case, just close it. It will just get in the way.

    Start off by changing the compatibility mode on the programs.
    Spirit 1.0 needs Windows 98/Windows ME mode, while Spirit 1.1 should have Windows 95.


    You're all set now. Prepare yourself mentally, open Spirit 1.0 and hit jailbreak.


    Important: Do NOT click quit just because Spirit says it's complete.
    I don't have it confirmed, but it might screw you over!

    Your iPod will reboot and once the whole process is complete, congratulations, your device is now fully jailbroken.
    You should have Cydia on your springboard!


    FAQ/Troubleshooting Q: Spirit said my device was successfully jailbroken, though I didn't get Cydia.
    A: Try running Spirit again. As a last restort; restore your device and try with Spirit 1.1 instead.

    Q: I got Failed to jailbreak (error code: c0000005) message.
    A: Right click spirit, and click "Run as Administrator". <Windows Vista/Windows 7 only>

    Q: My device has been acting weirdly after the jailbreak.
    A: If you were running a tethered jailbreak and ran Spirit without restoring, you'll be forced to restore at this point to regain your jailbroken features.

    Q: My device previously had a tethered jailbreak on it. What makes this one worth the hassle?
    A: Basically, if you turn off your device with a tethered jailbreak, you have no option but than to re-jailbreak it using a computer. With this untethered jailbreak, you can reboot as much as you want to. A tethered jailbreak can be compared to HEN on PSP, except that you can always re-jailbreak a tethered device, without having to go through the pain of ChickHEN.



    Keep in mind that most problems can be solved by restoring your device.
    If you encounter any other problems, post in this thread and I'll try to help you out.

    UPDATE: If you need to troubleshoot, i.e. cydia still not showing up, let me know in the thread. Don't forget the following information:
    Steps 1. Which firmware are you on?
    2. Which version of Spirit did you use?
    3. What version of iTunes do you have?
    4. During the entire process, did you get any error codes?

    Shizzy, you should get yourself and iTouch, or iPhone if you have the money (or care to waste all those extra moneh)
    You could get into iTheming instead

    Thanks for the input guys. Spirit is great. Only problem is that all the flaws haven't been found and corrected yet =/


    btw, nice to see you again, neelo
