I have an Ipodtouch 3g on 3.1.3 spirit jb. If i upgrade to 4.1 and Jailbreak will i be able to use cracked apps?

Guru August 11, 2010, 4:22 pm

Yes. You can use your previously purchased (Cydia) and cracked apps. They will not appear automatically (due to the iTunes upgrade process) but you can search and reinstall them. I have done it. Congrats to the Dev Team – you guys ROCK. Good luck jasveen.

All that happens for me is when I slide to unlock, Safari just crashes to dashboard. Then, when I go back to Safari, it says, “Oops… It looks like the installer crashed last time you tried to jailbreak. 🙁 It might work if you try again.”

Of course, when I try again, it doesn’t work.

lovelady August 17, 2010, 1:54 am

freecaster117 August 3, 2010, 9:38 pm

you need to recover your firmware first after that wait with recover your apps and do not add songs or something just enter your ipod/iphone name after that you go to jailbreakme.com and slide to jailbreak tada

worked on my 2g mc model running 4.0. How the hell did something jailbreak my ipod touch from the web brow ser… I’m not complaining, but that makes me wonder if this technique could be use to install malicious code.

anon August 14, 2010, 12:58 pm

will my current apps,memory from games,e-mail accounts, etc. be deleted?

ryan nguyen August 16, 2010, 4:45 am

freecaster117 August 14, 2010, 6:17 pm

tht guy August 17, 2010, 10:35 am

whats the difference between 4.0 and 4.0.1?

androl August 21, 2010, 5:06 pm


Ok my problem is… every time I go to safari and type in either jailbreakme.com or jailbreakme.modmui.com and slide the switch it just goes straight back to the dashboard(where the apps are). Then when I go back into safari and try it again it says “oops… it looks the installer crashed last time you tried to jailbreak .it might work if you try again”
and this happens again and again

I have tried EVERYTHING;
Clearing caches
Airplaine mode
deleting cookies
blocking popups

I have searched the net for a sollution I cannot find and what makes matter worse is everybody else seems to get it sone once they do a troubleshoot that someone says…except me that is 🙁

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
