Another Untethered Jailbreak for iPhone 3GS, iPod touch, iPad [Video]

Another untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS, iPod touch, and likely the iPad has been demonstrated by comex.

This jailbreak is a userland exploit which works similar to the jailbreakme.com method from the early jailbreaking days. It will be patched eventually so a release date is still being decided on.

Take a look at comex video below. It's titled 'spirit' but it's unclear if this will be the name of the jailbreak.


A jailbreak video. Thanks to posixninja for recording it, and chpwn for all his help. This too ought to work on the iPad...

You can also have a look at GeoHot's video demonstrating his untethered jailbreak here

@chpwn If this is real as you say, well... share the tool as the Dev Team does, that will prove it's a real thing otherwise a simple video doesn't prove nothing.

Hey all who think its fake: I've been running it on my iPod for a month. Its very real. MuscleNerd says so: http://twitter.com/MuscleNerd/status/11291474448 - Headphones on bottom: its an iPod Touch, not an iPhone. - Its just untethered on an older firmware: an iPod Touch 3G can't ever be untethered, no matter the firmware. This is shown to be an iPod Touch 3G as it has voice control. - the fake voice control for other devices does not look like that OR get started that way.

OK, I'll give it out now and the iPad will never be jailbroken. Sounds great. Can people ever learn that sometimes you need to wait a bit?

I don't know if it is real or not. But isn't it a way to add voice command on none 3gs and ipt3.

In cydia the beyouriphone repo has voice control. I know it works for the iPhone3g I dont know about a iPod touch. May be it is fake, maybe it's not.

Jaylou180, iPod Touch 3G has a voice command (similar to iPhone 3GS) but you need to activate it through the home button after connecting the headset to the iPod Touch 3G. Try it out :)

Nobody will buy a new iPod, just to prove that their jailbroken code works. The reason the videos from geohot and this one is similar is because there is instructions in how to show a jailbroken on youtube. I think that when tha Ipad comes out, the new jailbroken will be release. And yes, Apple would delay the ipad release if a hack emerges rigth now.

this is an ipod touch (so people stop asking why the headphones are at the bottom lol! Again this video (like geo's) doesnt show any jailbreaking in progress, just that it is jailbroken with cydia installed and obviously doesnt need to be tethered to boot. BUT... it could still be jailbroken from 3.1 when you could do a untethered jailbreak. if its real surely they would show sum1 opening a brand new ipod/ iphone, showing the firmware, showing the jailbreak in progress, then showing the device booting to prove its untethered and then showing cydia installed. until i see a brand new sealed device jailbroken by the methods above shown i will never beleive until its released and a tutorial posted on iclarified! if any of the above cannot be shown then they obviously cannot prove it, thus NOT REAL

lol, you stil dont get it!! :) lets put it this way, fw doesnt mather, 3.1 or 3.1.2 or 3.1.3. the thether is in the BOOTROM ie HARDWARE. maby you in the next few days get it :)

wezz69 - March 30, 2010 at 4:35pm
hmmm, i do get it, i have 2 3g iphones and 3 iphone 3gs. now i have a 3gs jailbroken on 3.1 that doesnt need to be tethered to boot, yet my 3.1.2 is jailbroken but needs to be tethered, my iphone 3.1.3 is stuck and not jailbroken. My point is: i can easily make a video of my 3.1 iphone 3gs booting up (not tethered obviously), and show it booting 3 times, then claiming i have found an untethered jailbreak for 3.1.3!! But WITHOUT proving what firmware its running, the videos claim is would be totally fraud AS IS THIS ONE!!

Tethered or untethered have nothing to do with firmware. What you need to be talking about is if you can tell from the video if it's an itouch 3G because the old 2G can be jailbroken untethered.

wezz69 you are very ill informed. I have a 32g 3GS running 3.1.3, jailbroken and doesn't need tethering to boot. This is because it is running an OLDER bootrom. These videos are trying to prove an untethered jailbreak for devices running a newer bootrom. Your 3GS running 3.1 has an older bootrom so it doesn't need tethering to boot. You can happily update this to 3.1.3, jailbreak and it will still boot without tethering. Your 3GS running 3.1.2 has the newer bootrom so it needs tethering to boot, regardless of which firmware you decide to put on it.

isn't it funny? now we see all these untethered jailbreak after GeoHot releases the video of untethered JB.

If they have it...Why they don't release it, a lot of people are waiting for it, the excuse is that they release it Apple will lock it, OMG... do you think apple will do a millionaire campaign and do last minutes changes because a bunch of hacker discover an exploit??? be serious, is this video is real, a lot of people, by mistake or accident upgraded their iphones, ipods or are out of the box equipments, release it, help people to unlock and JB their devices...

wezz69 - March 30, 2010 at 2:39pm
maybe theyll release it if the exploit isnt patched in the 3.2 firmware released soon! but i most definately know if it isnt released for 3.2 then theyll definately release it when the new 4.0 firmware is released ready for the iphone 4g in june/july, this is because the new firmware is released for the iphone and ipad!

I forgot, all jailbreaked iPhones will be detected by us and IMEI's will also be banned as well as take legal action against the owners for violating property rights, greetings.

Dear Steve Jobs. If you havn't noticed an iphone is like a computer,. It plays music and surfs the web ect. But when you buy a computer you can modify it. Change out parts and use any sofware you choose. So why cant you do this with your PURCHASED device.

Steve Jobs - March 30, 2010 at 12:38pm
There will be no more holes to exploit on iPhone 4.0 OS !!
