Spirit – the jailbreak for the iPad

leave a comment »

Today the Dev-Team has released their latest stroke of genius: Spirit is the name of the latest untethered jailbreak for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Before you jailbreak your device you should take two steps:

  1. Save the SHSH blob of your device. To do so you either have to download the necessary tool for Windows or Mac or edit your hosts file (/etc/hosts) to point “gs.apple.com” to “74.208.10.249” (Saurik’s server)
  2. Perform a full backup with iTunes! Especially if you’re trying to jailbreak your iPad – the whole procedure as well as Cydia on iPad is still considered beta.

Then go to http://spiritjb.com/ and download the jailbreak application for Mac or Windows. The jailbreak itself is as easy as one single click.
