    Just helped a friend use Spirit to jailbreak a 3gs. Everything worked fine EXCEPT when he goes to the App Store it says loading forever. I think it eventually says “can not connect to itunes”

    hi! I tried running spirit but it only gave me an error message of “failed to jailbreak (error code: c000035a)” what do I do next?

    Been reading the info about spirit and SHSH file saving using auto save app. but the info I have seen states Itunes 9 or later ?

    Must I upgrade to Itunes 9. as I read somewhere else that its not possible to xfer cracked apps from phone to itunes.

    have I been mislead ? (I’m ready to re-break but just want to clear this).

    Thanks all.

    Ummm. I have a 3GS with MC.
    It is “blackra1n”ed… Need I restoring? Or can I use Spirit righT now?

    Spirit does work! This site doesn’t give you any information. This is ONLY for a JAILBREAK and will not unlock your phone for use on another carrier! If you already have your phone jailbroken you need to update to 3.1.3 in iTunes, yes that’s right you need to update it before you can use Spirit. Spirit needs a “clean” phone to jailbreak. I also read somewhere on the net that if your running Windows 7 (I read that you might need to do this on other Windows operating systems like Vista and XP too)you need to right click on the Spirit tap and then click on the Properties tab then click on the Compatibility tab then where it says Compatibility Mode you need to click on the box that says Run This Program in Compatiblity mode for:, then you need to click on the Windows 98/ME box then after that hit the Apply tab at the bottom and ok after that and hopefully it works cause it worked for me perfect! Oh and if your having problems getting Spirit go straight to the site spiritjb.com – hope this helps!

    Works now.

    I downloaded the latest iTunes and this somehow helped.

    Thanks, I will let you know if I report any problems with Cydia.


  24. iconnect4u May 4, 2010 Reply


    I am on iphone 2G 3.1.3. Unlocking with Spirit shows that it worked. Cydia also got installed. However, Cydia does not start.

    Now my phone looks exactly like before with Cydia installed and I cant even remove it.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Just used Spirit on my Mac.

    After installing Spirit on Mac and Tethering it to my iPhone, uploading the Jailbreak, it hung for an incredibly long time after rebooting (I waited for about 10 mins before doing a hard reset)

    When hard resetting, It hung on the Apple logo so had to do a restore.

    Am I doing something wrong? I am using an 32GB 3GS on 3.1.3 (I actually lost my 3.1.2 jailbreak this morning after doing some updates on Rock, had to do a restore, maybe this has something to do with it?)

    Any comments would be appreciated.

    Sloppy editing on your part. Sometimes it says ipad sometimes it says iphone. How about a more complete explanation including putting Hachul0us and Install0us on the phone so people don’t just have a jailbroken phone but can do something with it
