  • http://N/A Arian

    Dear All,

    I have just jailbraked my Iphone 3GS 3.1.3, however i can find Cydia installed but my question would be how to activate Cydia in order to install hacked Ipa files from itunes, cuz it doesnt work like this through itunes, only i can download and install apps through Cydia.

    Cheers
    Ariani

  • tony reay

    Hello y’all,
    At the risk of offending for misusing your time and expertise… If I follow these instructions on my brand new o2 3G which has 3.1.3 installed, will it
    a. Allow me to run some/many of the fairly easy to obtain “cracked apps”. It’s not that I object to paying for apps, I just want more choices..
    b. Allow me to use third party (cheaper) Composite A/V cables
    c. AND PERHAPS MOST IMPORTANTLY, can it brick my fone and is it reversible, (if I have to send the fone in for repair)?
    The most basic help is sometimes the hardest to get, y’know?
    wishes to all.

  • Marcus roy

    i have iphone 3g with os 3.1.3,
    and nothing can jailbreak my device.
    i tried snowbreeze, blackra1n
    but spirit really works, make sure run this program in windows 98 compatibility.

    Hey Ariani,

    I think the solution to your problem is outlined in the site below:

    HELP…
    I did the JB thing… I have the coloured screen and the progress bar has gone all the way to the end… but there’s a white circling icon in the middle of the progress bar and nothing is happening with the fone – been about three minutes already…
    WTF is going on…
    should I do a shutdown/restart? disconnect the fone from the mac?

  • Jaron Coby

    Wow i cant believe how fast this Jailbreak was! Thanks very much appreciated

  • ASCIISyaeZ

    Anyone care to share about the functionality of the phone after jailbreaking with spirit? Like are you able to make calls? use 3G network, use wireless and the functions you will be able to use on the normal iphone

  • Mohmo

    Hi All,

    I had a problem when I started using Spirit that it looks like the programe doesn’t detecte the phone while it connected to the PC. My IPhone is 3Gs 3.1.3.

    The spirit asking to connect the device and the Jailbreak command is not working.

    Can anyone of you direct me to what I have to do to resolve this problem.

    Cheers,

    Hi, I have a new iPhone 3gs 3.1.3 v and I have JB it and nw I’m geting no services in da signal place, nw wht shId I do ?shld I wait 4 more time ?

  • Sam Magill

    Hey Conchais, I got the 3gs with 3.1.3 (with the 5.12 thing). I ran it in Win98 compat mode and it worked. Took like 20 seconds u will see a tie-dye kind of screen with a small loader bar, then it’ll reboot and you’ll see the Cydia app on ur last page. I’ve been crashin my dam phone for a few months now, this one, so far, seems legit. I just now backed my hashes up to the Cydia site too.

  • Karolis

    Awesome software.. it took about 2sec to jailbreak and 1min to reboot phone…

    It work well on 3gs 3.1.3 MC model!!!!

  • Jail Breakman

    OMFG!!!!
    What is wrong with you ppl???? just to let some folks in on a little secret….”Spirit” was made to jailbreak 3G, 3G[s] with 3.1.3 and iPad 3.2 not your crap older iPhone and $hit bootroms and firmwares lower then 3.1.3, everyone who still has 3.1.2 and older bootroms and non-MC models can still use blackra1n RC 2….I have jailbroken my iPhone 3G[s] 3.1.3, my buddies iPhone 3G 3.1.3 and another buddies iPad 3.2 as soon as he brought it home from the store with “Spirit”….no probs and no complaints, those who have a prob running this simple monkey function jailbreak “Spirit” should just stop using their phone now and go back to the dial phone because even the simplest of tech seems to confuse the shit out of you.

  • joshua dantiochias

    hi i just jb my iphone 3g 3.1.3 and it worked…… i think because every time i go to open the cydia app it opens and then closes why is this happening please help

    thanks josh

  • Resultz

    For people that JBed with Blackra1n on their ipod/iphone. BAD IDEA spirit had warnings NOT to jailbreak ipods/iphones with it on it. This will definitely brick it and too bad you cant fix it without going to apple.

  • Alexandra!

    it worked! thank you soo much! You totally like made my life! haha.

  • Nitin

    Used this tool with iPhone 3GS Model MC131X, Firmware 3.1.3 (7E18), Modem Firmware 05.12.01. Worked perfect. You must use it in win 98/ME compatability mode if on windows 7. And you will obviously have to install appsync 3.1 for the above model. Hope this helps.

    So I was sort of forced to update my wife’s iPhone to the newest OS – not a big deal really as far as she was concerned. Tried downloading and running Spirit and I keep getting error codes, even after changing the properties to run in compatibility mode and run as administrator as I have seen in several posts. My error code says something like C:\Acer\empowering technology\eDataSecurity\x64\LIBEAY32.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Then I get a Microsoft Windows notification that says dl.exe has stopped working – THEN I get a spirit error code that says failed to jb error code:ff (or sometimes that c0000 whatever code also) – Any ideas???

    To everyone who’s having problems: If you are not tech savvy or dont know what you’re doing, simply dont do it. you should have a basic understanding of what youre doing to your phone since youll inherently experience problems which youll have no idea how to fix

  • Galia

    @Jail Breakman:
    I have an iPhone 3G with 3.1.3 and I just tried Spirit and I get the same error as other people – the colour screen with the download bar at the “loading circle” and I can’t do anything – not switch it off, not anything. So, please, don’t start judging people before you know anything about them.

    Anyone, please give me ideas – what can we do to fix this? Otherwise my phone is working – if I connect it to iTunes I can interact with it, also I tried ringing to myself from another phone and I get a normal signal but the phone itself is not doing anything..

  • Galia

    For people having the “stuck at loading screen” problem, I found on another website a very simple solution (at least it worked for me).

    “all you have to do is restart the iphone and then it will work. you do that by holding the top and home buttons untill the screen goes black then turn it on that will work”

    After that you have to wait a bit when it loads up but it’s working perfectly.

    hi i found a solution after hard work
    Libeay32.dll error on Acer PCs (thank you for the tip Sharkkun): Go into the folder “C: \ Program Files \ Acer \ Empowering Technology \ eDataSecurity \ x64 \” and look for the file “libeay32.dll” (be careful : it may be hidden, then activate the option to show hidden files). Déplacez le fichier sur le bureau et démarrez Spirit, il ne devrait plus y avoir d’erreur. Move the file on the desktop and start Spirit, he should not be any mistake. Après le jailbreak terminé, remettez le fichier dans son dossier d’origine. After completing the jailbreak, put the file in its original folder

    its long but ITLL work 100% trust me

    If i use this will it network lock my phone again…?
    i have 3.1.3 (7E18) model MC132X with modem firmware 05.12.01

    Please respond.. thanks..

  • Clard

    To ALL with problems!

    *If you just “Jailbroke” your phone and you can’t find Cydia installed on your phone, it means you did NOT sucessfully jailbreak your phone. Try it again..

    *If you are having error’s or codes pop up, making you unable to jailbreak using Spirit, more than likely, you need to upgrade to the 3.1.3 IPSW. This means go to iTunes and fucking update! Don’t ask how, you’ve done it before and you dont need someone to hold your fat hand..

    *If you are trying to jailbreak using Windows 95 or 98……………. It’s FUCKING 2010! Get a new fucking computer, try again.

    Hope this helps.

  • Jenn

    Quickest jailbreak I’ve ever experienced, and all it required was me clicking one button!

    If this doesn’t work for you, I’m not sure what will. I’ve tried several different programs, and this is the only one I’ve gotten to work properly on 3.1.3

  • Shields

    Ok I just did this on my stock 3.1.3 iPhone 3gs, cydia was installed, all my apps remained there, all of my contacts are still there, and everything seems good. but my phone has been searching for 3g service for several minutes now, and i had full bars just moments ago. Will update when i get service or if I do not within the next hour…

  • shields

    Alright, service came back as soon as I tried to connect to the internet, so it was just kind of stuck on the “searching…” text. Overall, the program worked perfectly, be sure to run in compatibility mode, and if it says “unsupported device” and you’re using the iphone 3.1.3 3gs just unplug it and plug it back in. Works with itunes open, did not try without.

    Hi Guys, ive been trying to research jailbreaking my iphone for a while and want to check something hopefully someone can help- i have an iphone 3gs mc131x and ive read this works for 3.1.3 but before i started this endeavor id already upgraded to 4.0.1. has anyone tried spirit with 4.0.1 yet and did it work? or is there another path to follow. redsnow didnt work and im assuming its because i was unaware my phone was a 3gs (i thought it was a 3g) any help would be greatly appreciated
