How to Jailbreak iPad iOS 3.2.1 & 3.2 iPad Jailbreak

Unlock and Jailbreak iPad

If you have landed on this page then you are looking for information on How To Jailbreak iPad. Like the iPhone the iPad also comes with a locked down file system which means that again Apple is in full control of what you can or cannot do with your device. My goal and the goal of my team is to jailbreak the iPad which means unlocking iPad’s file system so that you can use your iPad anyway you want. This includes using all different apps, making system tweaks, fixes and more. It also allows developers to make their own apps too. Since the iPad uses the same operating system (OS) as the iPhone it means that jailbreaking the iPad is even easier than anticipated. The hard work has already been completed and now it is just a matter of tweaking and adjusting things so that the iPad becomes unlock able too.

iPad Jailbreak Solutions Spirit and Blackra1n

So we already know that two different programs have been released for unlocking the iPad and these are Spirit Jailbreak and Blackra1n Jailbreak.

What’s Spirit Jailbreak?

  • Jailbreak with Spirit is an untethered jailbreak for the Ipad and it works on the latest firmwares too. This program can also be used to jailbreak the iPhone and iPod touch also.
  • Spirit is not a carrier unlock and therefore you will not be able to use it to unlock your iPad to any network.
  • If you currently are using a tethered jailbreak, you have to carry out a full restore in order to use Spirit.
  • Do not upgrade your firmware.


  • In order to use Spirit you need an iPad that is using firmware 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 3.2 or more. (this is constantly being upgraded as Apple release new firmware editions.)
  • Your iPad needs to be activated. This means it must not be stuck on the Connect to iTunes or emergency call screen.
  • Any version of iTunes 9 that has also been synched with your iPad.

When you use the official Spirit download you will be able to run whatever iPhone/iPad programs you want even if it’s not in the Apple Apps Store which is great news. This new jailbreak also supports the iPad but you should be aware that it is still in Beta stage so you need to take precautions when using it.

What’s iPad BlackRa1n Jailbreak?

  • BlackRa1n is the other jailbreaking solution that you can use for the iPad.
  • Ra1n only supports a tethered jailbreak so you need to make sure that you don’t let your battery run down.
  • BlackRa1n allows you to fully unlock your device means that you can use any carrier you choose.
  • You can store as many unapproved apps as you like.


  • In order to use BlackRa1n you need an iPad with the 3.1.2 firmware. This is constantly been looked at as new firmware editions are released.
  • Your iPad must also be activated and synched to iTunes

BlackRa1n is a software tool that will allow you to jailbreak your iPad or iPhone. This is a 30 jailbreak but it is tethered so in order to rebook you have to rerun BlackRa1n.

Differences Between Spirit and BlackRa1n

Spirit and BlackRa1in are really very similar when it comes to jailbreaking the iPad or iPhone. The only difference between the two is the graphics. Spirit installs Cydia automatically while blackRa1n makes you download it through the blackra1n app.

What we know so far about iPad jailbreak progress

  • iPad has already been jailbroken.
  • Spirit and Blackra1n are the two programs that can be used to jailbreak the iPad. Spirit is an untethered program whilst BlackRa1n is tethered.
  • Any bugs and errors are continuously being worked on for both these programs.
  • The iPad uses the same operating system as the iPhone so this makes it easier to jailbreak and unlock because the iPhone has already been successfully unlocked.

White iPhone 4 still on schedule but could see supply issues

Though Steve Jobs, after handing out free Bumpers to current iPhone 4 customers, assured users waiting for the white version of the iPhone 4 that the device is still on schedule to ship at the end of July, reports around the Web suggest Apple could see some major supply issues and availability could be limited.

Translated from Chinese newspaper 21st Century Business Herald, manufacturing issues for the white iPhone 4 are apparently related to problems with painting the glass surfaces of the device at the Lens Technology manufacturing plant (where iPhone 4 glass is processed, pressed, and painted).

According to Engadget, "a worker from Lens' quality control department has allegedly admitted that the company's screen-printing workshop may currently be dealing with some issues with the white iPhone 4 covers."

This could be the biggest issue regarding iPhone 4 availability moving forward. If Lens Technology is not able to keep up with the potentially huge demand for white iPhone 4s (remember, over 3 million black iPhone 4s have already been sold), Apple could have yet another public-relations matter to deal with. It is reported that Lens Technology machines can only produce three iPhone 4 glass units per hour, less than half of Apple's supply needs.

Are you waiting for the white iPhone 4? Will you line up to ensure you get one when the release date is announced? Let us know in the comments!

Jailbreak iOS 4.1 with Sn0wbreeze 2.0

Sn0wbreeze 1.8 has been released. This is by the same developer who is behind other popular iPhone jailbreak tools such as sn0wbreeze 1.6 and 1.7 for iOS 4, sn0wbreeze for iPhone 3.1.3, f0recast and BlackBreeze. Just like the PwnageTool for Mac, Sn0wbreeze 1.8 can jailbreak iPhone 3GS (old bootrom, and already pwned on iOS 4.x), iPod touch 2G (non MC model) and iPod touch 3G on iOS 4.1 Beta. iPhone 3G users will have to jailbreak using Redsn0w, guide for which is posted here.Sn0wbreeze 1.8

So if you have a Windows machine, you can use Sn0wbreeze 1.8 to create custom firmware files without the upgraded baseband. Again, only the following devices are supported.

  • iPhone 3GS (old bootrom and already jailbroken on iOS 4.x)
  • iPod touch 2G (non MC model)
  • iPod touch 3G

Warning: If you rely on an unlock, DO NOT update to iOS 4.1.

Instructions are as follows.

Step 1: Download and install the latest version of iTunes.

Step 2: Now start iTunes and sync your iPhone with your PC so that it backs-up all your important data including settings, apps, music, contacts and photos.

Step 3: Download Sn0wbreeze and the original iOS 4.1 firmware file for your version of iPhone or iPod touch. Move all these files to your desktop.

Step 4: Start Sn0wbreeze and select “Simple Mode”.

sn0wbreeze 3.1.3

Step 5: Sn0wbreeze will now ask you to browse for your .ipsw file. Select the correct iOS 4.1 firmware .ipsw file by clicking the “Browse” button. Sn0wbreeze will verify the selected file and then will present you with following screen.

Sn0wbreeze 1.6 for 4.0 (1)

Step 6: Click on "Yes" when Sn0wbreeze asks you “Do you want to activate your iPhone?” for hacktivation. Click on “No” only if you are on an officially supported carrier like AT&T.

sn0wbreeze 3.1.3

Step 7: Sn0wbreeze will now create the custom .ipsw file for your iPhone which will be jailbroken.

sn0wbreeze 3.1.3sn0wbreeze 3.1.3

Step 8: Now you will have to restore your iPhone to this custom firmware 4.1 that you just cooked using Sn0wbreeze for your iPhone. Click on your phone from the sidebar in iTunes and then press and hold left “Shift” button on the keyboard and then click on “Restore” (Not “Update” or “Check for Update”) button in the iTunes and then release the “Shift” button.

This will make iTunes prompt you to select the location for your custom firmware 4.1. Select that custom .ipsw file and click on “Open”.

Step 9: Now sit back and enjoy as iTunes does the rest for you. This will involve a series of automated steps. Be patient at this stage and don’t do anything silly. Just wait while iTunes installs the new iOS 4.1 on your iPhone. Your iPhone screen at this point will be showing a progress bar indicating installation progress. After the installation is done, iPhone will restart automatically and you should now have a fully jailbroken iPhone running on iOS 4.1.

Step 10: Once you are done with the jailbreak process. You can now restore all your settings, apps, music, contacts and photos to the newly installed iOS 4.1 by restoring the backup that you made in Step 2 from iTunes.

Feel free to ask me any question here should you run into any problem during the jailbreak process.

Download iTunes 9.2 for Windows and Mac OS X
Download iOS 4.1 for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPod touch
Download .NET Framework 3.5 (required to run Sn0wbreeze)
Download Sn0wbreeze 1.8 (Windows Only) [Fast Mirror link]

Jailbreak iOS 4.1 iPhone

How to Jailbreak iOS 4.1

Apple has just released a beta of the iOS 4.1 download to iPhone Developers in the Dev Center. We’re getting a flood of e-mails with people asking if it’s possible to jailbreak iOS 4.1.

Yes, it’s possible to jailbreak iOS 4.1, but don’t expect an iOS 4.1 jailbreak just yet. Right now iOS 4.1 is in beta, Apple will release a certain amount of betas of it to test it first before dropping the iOS 4.1 update to public. After Apple has released the final iOS 4.1 update, you can expect a jailbreak. Remember, if you want to unlock iOS 4.1 don’t update until we know the iOS 4.1 update doesn’t patch any exploit.

The best way to stay up to date with the latest jailbreak iOS 4.1 information is to follow @QuickPWN on Twitter. As far as I know, the following jailbreaks may be released when iOS 4.1 is out:

  • Jailbreak iOS 4.1 with redsn0w – redsn0w is no doubt THE best jailbreak out there. It’s created by the famous Dev Team who makes reliable jailbreaks. It will definitely be updated to support iOS 4.1
  • Jailbreak iOS 4.1 with SpiritSpirit is the easiest jailbreak out here. It’s created by comex. There may be a Spirit Jailbreak for iOS 4.1, but don’t count on it as Apple could easily patch that.
  • Jailbreak iOS 4.1 with limera1nGeohot was going to release a limera1n jailbreak for iOS 4.1, but it looks like he has left the jailbreak scene for now. He did state that someone else may take on his work before he closed his blog and Twitter account.

Update: You can jailbreak iOS 4.1 beta 1 with redsn0w 0.9.5 beta 5. Download it for Mac here, or Windows here. If you don’t know what this is pleased don’t download and just wait until the final iOS 4.1 download is out.

Adidas forgoes advertising
iAd Apple rumor site came from Business Insider, the sports giant Adidas has refused to participate in the ad network iAd of Apple, which will deprive Americans of more than $ 10 million. Information is obtained from two sources, occupying high positions in the mobile industry. According reason for this decision lies in Steve Jobs, and more precisely in its desire for control - Adidas has refused, after Apple for the third time rejected the creative concept of the company. In an attempt to offer consumers higher quality ads, Apple exercise greater control over the content than other similar services and even produce its own actual ads. This is the reason for the slow spread of iAd and the absence of many premium brands in the service. According to the WSJ from Adidas before participation has declined at least one major company - Chanel.
