    Let me start off by saying I have never jailbroken an apple product before, but I would love to be able to multitask on the ipad now (and not in the fall!) so i have been doing my research. So if this post is dumb or makes me a noob, theres no need to rub it in my face... i realize, i dont know much about any of this stuff yet and thats why i am on these forums!!!

    It seems like most of you did the Spirit Jailbreak which is what I was going to go with.

    But then I found this youtube video:

    In the comments, the user who posted the video claims that this is much more stable than the spirit jailbreak.... anybody using this instead of spirit???

    First thing i noticed it was being done on a PC. Jailbreaking wi spirut was much easier and so much more straightforward,and faster than this

    I'm not sure why anyone would want to go with an unkown factor when trying to do something like this.

    As far as I know read there have been no problems with spirit so why not go with the thing that works best and for the most. Appreciate you research and eating to be cautious but you could be multi tasking now instead of starting threads mate!

    Spirit is literally just one click of a button. Theres really no need for instructions. Although, first time I used it, I looked for instructions too. I JailBroke my brothers iPad very easily and with no problems, so far.

    Everything on the site the video refers to is a hoax - they only want you to answer a stupid referral survey b4 you download

    Never jail broke before the iPad and spirit was wonderful. So easy that I wondered why I hadn't done this before. No problems afterward and is stable as hell.

    I guess Geohot had little to with this then? I've not seen a single tweet from him, since Spirit was released.

    There's really nothing "more stable" about jailbreaking anyway. It just executes an exploit to run non-Apple code. Once that exploit is done, that's it. It doesn't leave any running programs or anything. Any "stability" comes after the fact through what you download on Cydia.

    That said, I only trust jailbreaks from or endorsed by the Dev Team.
