    I changed the compatibility to windows 95/mellenium, and now when I hit the jailbreak button it say

    "spirit requires iTunes 9 to function"

    Thing is, I'm running version 9.1 on my pc and my iPad??!

    And help would be much appreciated. I rebooted my computer but, no luck

    Guys I figured it out.
    For those of you getting this same error message, this is what you need to do to correct it.

    Go to:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\bin\libeay32.dl

    Copy this "libeay32.dl file

    And paste it in here :

    c:\Windows\System 32

    Now try running Spirit again!

    Another error message I received was :

    "Spirit needs iTunes ver 9 to work" even though I have this version installed!

    This is what you need to do to correct that:
    Google " Spirit Fixer by Kirma v1.0.1"
    Download it
    Run it and install
    Then move the desktop icon for the Spirit program into a new folder you create on the desktop.

    Open that folder and click on the Spirit program icon, and voilą! You're in business!

    Ok... I'd rather leave it to Apple. Not worth the time or hassle for me. Not to mention I'd rather Apple worry about security.

    But I get the argument. Thanks.

    To each their own. Personally I would do it just for Iconoclasm. I have 5 rows of 5 icons per page...also the app that lets you move groups of icons at once.

    I have JB'd my iPad, I ran the Firmware Umbrella and I see the Cydia has my SHSH blobs on file.

    I think there's a small area that I'm confused about, and that's "updating" the firmware on my iPad.

    I've already modified my hosts file to point to sayurks server (sp?), so I'm not terribly concerned about running into any unwanted updates, but I guess my area of confusion is this (Please note this is for the WiFi Version, not the 3G):

    1) I see a lot of people talking about the fact that if you do not back up your blobs and you update to a different firmware, you'll NEVER be able to Jailbreak your device again because your blobs don't exist. I don't quite understand that.

    2) If I decide I want to upgrade to the new firmware, with my "blobs" on file, but then want to "downgrade", is there a step by step guide as to what to do? How do I access my SHSH blobs on the server? Or the ones I have downloaded to my computer?

    I appreciate all the help, and I know a few of these might be stupid questions

    SHSH Blobs - store locally?

    Good Evening,

    Taking "andsoitgoes" question a little further, is there any reason why I cannot store the SHSH blobs locally and using the hosts file point it to my own machine, or better yet point it to 127.0.0.1 which is equivalent to my IPad?

    - John

    Sorry guys!! I'm probably not the first to asked but how can I restored my Ipad if i'm not a jailbreak enthusiast ? I'm already aware that I should used Itunes but is there a website or thread with a well known procedure. I want to jailbreak my Ipad but I have to cover my bases before doing it.
