As you already know, the Spirit Jailbreaking tool was released some time back and as promised here is a detailed guide to jailbreak iPod Touch 3G on OS 3.1.3 using Spirit untethered tool. Spirit works on both Windows and Mac OS X and can jailbreak all the newer iDevices like iPhone touch 3G and 2G (MC model), iPhone 3GS and the newly released iPad as long as they are officially activated via iTunes.

Using an untethered jailbreaking tool like Spirit, you do not need to re-jailbreak your iPod Touch every time you restart it (which is so annoying).


Make sure you backup your SHSH files before jailbreaking your iPod Touch 2G/3G using Spirit. Of course you can still jailbreak your device without backing up the SHSH files, but in case Apple patches this exploit, there will be no way you downgrade to 3.1.2 later on. This is why we keep reiterating how important it is to backup the SHSH files before each time you jailbreak. Check this guide to know how to save SHSH blob on your PC.

  2. Hi, i have a iPod Touch 3G 32 Gb (MC model) with 3.1.3, and i tryed to use Spirit in MAC OS X, and it didnt work, the display would stay forever inthat wallpaper from Spirit while its doing the jailbreak. Today i tryed to do the jailbreak in the same ipod, but in Windows 7, i set compatibility mode to Windows 95, and everything went great, after few seconds my iPod was jailbroken with Cydia installed.

    Hope this helps others that also had problems with Spirit version for OSX.
