How to Jailbreak Your iPod Touch Using Spirit (Windows) [3.1.2, 3.1.3]

These are instructions on how to perform an untethered jailbreak on your iPod touch using the Spirit Jailbreak and Windows.

To follow these instructions you must be using an activated device not stuck on the Connect to iTunes or Emergency Call screen.

Any version of iTunes 9 til 9.1.1 will work.

Step One
Download the Spirit Jailbreak from here and save it to your desktop.

Step Two
Double click the Spirit application on your desktop to launch it

*Important: If you have Windows 7 you may need to run Spirit in compatibility mode for Windows 98. Before launching right click Spirit.exe and select Properties from the contextual menu. Then from the Compatibility tab select Windows 98 from the Compatibility Mode dropdown. Click Apply then Ok

Step Three

Connect your iPod and press the Jailbreak button.

Step Five
The Spirit app will then let you know the jailbreak is complete.

Your iPhone will reboot and show you progress indicator. Once this finishes your iPod will be jailbroken with Cydia installed!

    Ok, I have one MAJOR question! I’m on a non-mc model 16gb iPhone 3gs, running firmware 3.1.2 with a Blackra1n jailbreak. My question is, with the new release of Spirit and the ability to unlock firmware 3.1.3, how do I upgrade to 3.1.3 without losing all of my app data (game saves, progress, etc…)? I want to do the Spirit Jailbreak because, I’m tired of having to re-jailbreak my phone everytime it dies or reboots! Any help would be greatly appreciated! :-)

    It worked for my 3g iPod touch. However, it was my understanding that this would allow me to add 3rd party apps onto my ipod, however when I attempt to sync them, it says there is an error and it won’t do it. Any suggestions?
