As far as I can tell, Spirit "destroyed" my iPod

    I have a 32gb 3G iPod touch

    This morning, I checked the Green Pois0n blog, and I saw that the unthethered jailbreak was finally released. I didn't see any instructions associated with it, so I assumed it worked just like Blackra1n, and ran it.

    For about 2 seconds, the screen flashed "Restore Complete", then the iPod shut down. When I turned it back on, I got the 'Connect to iTunes' screen.

    I read somewhere, after I had already ran Spirit, that you're supposed to restore your iPod prior to trying to run Spirit.

    Spirit and Blackra1n no longer recognize my iPod as an iPod, so I can't re-run them. I tried to restore back to 3.1.2, but Apple isn't signing that FW anymore.

    It won't let me DFU either. I hold the power and home for 10 seconds, release the home, but the iPod just goes back to the 'Connect' screen after 5 seconds. I've used DFU enough to know that my timing isn't the problem.

    Can anyone help? Not the most fun thing to deal with at 9 in the morning -_-

    Thanks

    Restore to 3.1.3. And you're doing DFU wrong if it's not going into DFU mode. DFU mode is hardware. Spirit is software. It won't affect hardware.

    I want jailbreaking though. Or did Spirit open it up to 3.1.3?

    Restore to 3.1.3. If you were already jailbroken with blackra1n, spirit would cause it to be unbootable. But since 3.1.3 is jailbreakable via spirit, you've got nothing to lose by upgrading.

    Link was already posted...

    Yes, Spirit is an untethered jailbreak for 3.1.3. That was pretty much the point of it. :)

    Ack, that's what I get for opening a bunch of tabs at a time and not reloading before I post :p

    Perhaps next time, it would be useful to read the instructions, before asking for help.

    Hope everything works out for you!

    haha, I do the exact same thing! I open up my User CP and then open all the unread threads in tabs and then go through and sometimes this same thing happens. :)
