Untethered Jailbreak for iPod Touch 3G, OS 3.1.3

By | May 3rd, 2010

Good news for all iPod Touch users especially those with MC models, that comex has released the spirit jailbreak that amazingly works on all apple devices i.e. iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Spirit provides an untethered jailbreak which means you don’t have to connect to iTunes anymore every time you reboot your iPod Touch and other Apple devices. Unfortunately MC model users have been living with tethered jailbreak for long time, but spirit has put them out of their misery. Here’s a step by step guide to jailbreak your iPod Touch OS 3.1.3. Note: You can jailbreak iPod 2G and 3G running latest OS using this tool.

Step 1: Make sure you have upgraded iPod Touch to the latest OS i.e. OS 3.1.3. If you are already using tethered jailbreak, you need to restore the device first.

Step 2: Download Spirit for Mac OS X or Windows

Step 3: Connect iPod Touch to the computer and run Spirit. However if you’re using Windows 7 or Vista, you need to run it as windows 98 compatibility mode, also run this program as administrator (you can find these options by right clicking spirit.exe and going in Properties tab) After running Spirit, a small dialog box will appear, it will automatically detect the device and the OS, click on Jailbreak button

Step 4: Wait for sometime while it jailbreaks your iPod Touch. You will appreciate the a beautiful colored screen while running jailbreak process. This jailbreak is better than blackra1n by geohot. After the process is complete your iPod touch will reboot

Step 5: That’s it, you are now using untethered jailbroken iPod Touch. Cydia will come pre-installed.

  • iwannajailbreakmyipod

    When you jailbreak the ipod do you lose all of your pictures, music, and apps? Also, does it disconnect you to your itunes account and or your wifi connections. Please help.

  • usmanaziz

    No! All your pictures, music and apps are preserved. Only Cydia stores is added to your iPhone/iPod/iPad. You can use iTunes just as before.

  • neoma

    i have the last version of itunes, but when i want to run spirit I got this message
    “Spirit require iTunes 9 to function. Please install a correct version of iTunes then run spirit again”

  • chjawadm

    Please see the iTunes version requirements here: http://www.spiritjb.com/

  • D-Block

    Excellent. FYI, I tried it on my windows 7 and Ran as Admin/windows 98 compatibility, but Cydia did not show. I tried it multiple times and it seems to work, but I didn't have Cydia. I ended up, trying it from my XP machine, and Voilaaaaaaaaaa. NYCEEEEEEE

  • usmanaziz

    Yes, it will untethered jailbreak your iPod Touch 3G.

    i jailbreaked my ipod touch2G 3.1.3 (MC model) with spirit as u said…it went fine…even the cydia was installed properly….but when i connect it to ifunbox, my device was shown was a “jailed” ipod……..can you please point out my mistakes…or what should i do for an untethered jailbreak???????

    Can u pleases post a detailed step by step procedure to jailbreak my MC version ipod???????

    Thnx in advance

  • usmanaziz

    Thanks for your comment! To fix your problem, simply search and install 'afc2add' from Cydia as afc2 is not available with Spirit for now. You'll have to restart your device after installation.

  • tony

    @ usmanaziz…..thnx mate…but as i m new to this ipod world………can u tell me in a bit detail how can i do that with cydia…and please do tell me if there is a way i can do the same by downloading file to my PC and installing it from there to my ipod….thnx in advance….oh.,,and please clarify my doubt about the ifunbox issue of not showing my ipod as jailbroken……….

  • usmanaziz

    Simply open Cydia from your iPod Touch and select 'Search'. Now type 'afc2add' in the search bar, open the package and tap on install. It will ask for confirmation. Let it install and the restart the device. Voila! You're done! No need to download it to your PC. You'll now be able to use ifunbox with full options.

  • chjawadm

    Re-download the Spirit and try again. A lot of bugs have been fixed and an updated version of Spirit is now available for download

  • usmanaziz

    If something goes wrong during jailbreaking, you can restore the device using iTunes.

  • usmanaziz

    Yes, but you dont need to re-jailbreak after reboot as this method is untethered.

    As with the iPod nano and classic, one further use of the storage on the iPod touch is to hold digital photos. In fact, the touch is the best of the iPods for displaying your photos thanks to its three and a half inch screen with 480 x 320 resolution.
