Has anyone seen reports of Bricked iPads while using spiritjb to jail break?
Worked great for me, I guess it's what you do after installing it. You can always restore if you need to.
Yes, works great.
iPhones only can brick, because they are typically carrier locked and have special modem firmware, which binds the iPhone to that specific carrier.
The iPad is unlocked and therefore can't brick. The jailbreak itself can always be removed by restoring the firmware to the iPad.
Spirit is fine - no worries.
And don't confuse a botched jail breaking with bricking. I think a lot of people experience this problem. When I first jailbreaked mine, iTunes started syncing, which I canceled, which screwed me into a restore. Just let spirit, iTunes do it's thing and all is well!! NO TOUCHING
I had the same thing happen to me. Accidently left iTunes open when I ran the jailbreak. my iPad ended up stuck at a loading screen. Restored everything, turned off itunes and disabled the "automatically start iTunes" feature, and everything ran perfectly. Still trying to find some good apps though that work on the iPad.
The only way to brick one of these things is to literally hit it with a brick.
Since this thing is 'magical', I don't want to mess around with the supernatural power of Apple.
I'm still debating on jailbreaking my 32 wifi. Is there any apps thats in cydia that was rejected by apple worth noting?
- Backgrounder (sort of Multitasking)
- SBSsettings (access all major settings, i.e. Wifi on/off, brightness control, etc. w/o leaving your current app)
- and a bunch of "nice looking" design templates for the overall look and feel
Gazuga, how did you restore your iPad after getting stuck at the loading screen? I have the exact same problem - iTunes was running while I was Spirit. Stuck at the Apple icon start screen and iTunes stops responding if the two are connected. Greatly appreciate your help-
