Hackers Release New 'Jailbreak' for Apple's iPhone 3GS and iPad

Users of iPhone are surely happy to find out that a new jailbreak version has just been released. 

This jailbreak promises to help all users of iPhone 3GS and iPad to run third-party applications that otherwise would not be accessible for them. Many apps and third-party software have features that have not been authorized by Apple. This is why jailbreaking is an option today.  

The practice of jailbreaking is not new and it actually is quite popular. With this new jailbreak, users of iPhone 3GS can access all the apps they want, to make their device more functional and to personalize it as they please. 

It seems that Dubbed Spirit is the functional software for Windows and Mac OS X, which promises to allow users to jailbreak their iPhone OS device. The new hack was released by the Dev Team group. 

The jailbreaking possibility revealed now should have been available much earlier, but it seems that its developers decided to postpone the release date, to adapt the new jailbreak in such a way that it would become functional on iPad 3G, as well. 

As imagined, the new jailbreak will work by installing Cydia, the software that hacks the device to allow unauthorized apps.

Naturally, this is not the first jailbreak possibility released until now. The new jailbreak was released after the tethered jailbreak by Hotz. 

The Hotz jailbreak promised to help uses of iPod touch and iPhone 3GS gain access to a series of apps. On the other hand, the jailbreak version that was just released by Spirit is an untethered one. 

In case you are currently using a tethered jailbreak version on your device, you will have to restore to be able to use Spirit.

What has Apple to say about the jailbreak community? 

Naturally, the famous manufacturer is not pleased with the possibility to jailbreak the devices they created. This is why Apple issues certain updates to slow down hackers in their attempt to jailbreak the iPhone. 

The main concern that Apple has regarding jailbreaking is linked to piracy, as it seems that this allows users to steal software from the App Store, besides accessing unauthorized apps. Just keep in mind that jailbreaking your iPhone can void its warranty, in case you have one.
