spirit jailbreak ipadThe very few of you who were having problems with Spirit on Windows can rejoice. Spirit, which would sometimes give you an error code c0000005 depending on what version of Windows you were using, has been updated to fix this error.

I personally didn’t have any problem with the Spirit jailbreak on Windows. One problem I had though is that it deleted the camera roll on my iPad. Well, Comex also fixed this bug so it shouldn’t delete pictures anymore.

This is the update Comex posted on his site:

I’ve updated the jailbreak tool. It no longer deletes photos (sorry!) and should resolve the issue with error code c0000005. (If you still get that error with the new version, try setting compatibility mode to Windows 95.)

You can download Spirit for Windows or Mac from here. It’s the most simple jailbreak ever but if you need directions on how to use it, see my Spirit tutorial.

    I jailbreaked my iPhone using the Spirit. But like you have noted it deleted my photos off my camera roll. From your post I believe this has been fixed. But is there a way to restore my photos which were deleted? I would appreciate if you can clarify! Thanks!

  • If your pictures were backed up in iTunes, then just sync your iPhone. If you didn’t back them up, then they are lost.

    Thanks for your clarification! I did back-up my phone before attempting jailbreak. I tried syncing with iTunes but unfortunately I still couldn’t restore my pictures. Have I then lost them permanently?

    PEOPLE PEOPLE….don’t be the next idiot and UPDATE once apple releases the next update!….I don’t wanna hear….”Hey Sebastien, I updated by mistake…can you help me?…I miss my jailbreak”. Lets be happy for what comex has done and hope that the dev team along with him can give us more of the same in the future!

    hi Vikram Kaustaban i have got exactly the same problem, i backed up my itunes, thn jailbreaked using spirit! my photos got deleted thn i tried syncing and nothing! photos are gone, any 1 help us out?

  • Wikan

    To all you that lost photos, try iPhone/iPod Touch Backup Extractor @ http://supercrazyawesome.com/ (no it’s not a spam link).

    Alternatively try to get them out yourself, locations are as follows:

    On a PC they are here: C:Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

    and on a mac here:
    ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/

    Good Luck!

  • Hard to believe people are using PC’s old enough to have Window’s 95 still installed! 😼

    Especially when they have an iPad!

    is this true “Spirit is NOT for people who plan to unlock b/c it does not activate phones. For a valid contract you need to activate through iTunes first.. then jailbreak.” ?????

    hi,thanks a lot for spirit it is more than good

  • Fred

    A friend of mine recomended SPIRIT to me. He was a happy camper.. I however, get the following error: c0000138
    Help would be highly apprecieated. Thanks..

  • I used Spirit on my 3gs 16g. It has 3.1.3 and my iTunes is 9.0.3 and when it started to break the phone the cloud color purple came up on the iphone but it didn’t show the progress bar. Just the circle on the screen as if it was still working. I didn’t want to interrupt the process but after an hour I figured something was wrong and tried to eject it the restart. The phone now only shows the apple or battery charging and will not be recognized by either my mac or windows computer. Is this phone broken for good or is there a way to recover it? I have tried the double button reset too. Any ideas?

    I have important question for you, my iPhone 3GS 3.1.3 is “UnActivated” and it’s stuck on emergency call mode. Is there any way to Activate it for at least use it as iPod? What should I do? Thanks.
