Although the site is currently inaccessible (likely due to heavy traffic), below are the relevant details:

What's Spirit?

• Spirit is an untethered jailbreak for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch on the latest firmwares.
• Spirit is not a carrier unlock.
• If you currently are using a tethered jailbreak, you have to restore to use Spirit. Do not upgrade if you use an unlock on an iPhone 3G or 3GS. (You can, however, restore to 3.1.2 if you have SHSH blobs for that version.)

Requirements

• Any iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch on firmware 3.1.2, 3.1.3, or 3.2.
• An activated device: one not stuck on the Connect to iTunes or Emergency Call screen.
• Any version of iTunes 9 (including 9.1.1).
• Syncing with iTunes before trying this highly recommended.

Note: On iPad, all this is still sort of beta. Some packages in Cydia, not designed for...
 

Apple Sued for Exploding iPod Touch Allegedly Injures Child

265w ago - A mother is suing Apple after her son's iPod touch allegedly exploded in his pants.

The explosion caused burns to his leg, and interestingly the iPod was apparently in the off position when it exploded.

To quote: Normally the only time our Apple devices make us hot is when we're looking at photos of ourselves on the screen, but unfortunately for one kid in Ohio, his iPod burn was real.

According to a lawsuit filed against Apple, a mother is suing the company after her son's iPod touch allegedly exploded in his pants, causing burns to his leg. Accident, or some self-destruct beta test for the new iPhone?

The suit explains that the iPod touch was sitting in the off position inside the boys pants, when a part of it popped and caused a burning sensation. The boy then stood up and looked down to see that his pants had actually caught on fire.
 

BBC iPlayer comes to the iPhone

319w ago - The BBC has launched a version of its iPlayer video on demand service for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch.

It is the first time the service has been available on portable devices.

The iPhone and iPod touch are able to stream shows from the iPlayer website over wi-fi networks. The iPhone cannot stream BBC video over the cell network. A BBC developer said that the corporation was currently working on other versions of the iPlayer for "many more" devices.

Anthony Rose, writing on the BBC internet blog, said: "We started with iPhone because it is the device most optimised for high quality video currently available.

"It displays the BBCiPlayer site and BBC programmes nicely."

The software currently comes in two versions - a program which allows users to download programmes to their Windows PC and a streaming version on the web available to all users.

The version for iPhone and iPod touch users will allow streaming over a wi-fi connection. However, the EDGE mobile network used by the iPhone is too slow for streaming video.

The corporation has agreed a deal with wi-fi firm The Cloud to provide all BBC online services for free at its 7,500 hotspots.

A version of iPlayer for Virgin Media customers is expected later this month.
