    I just ordered my iPad tonight but i saw that 3.2.1 breaks spirit and im worried that when i receive my iPad it will have 3.2.1 on it. Do you think ill be able to downgrade so i can jailbreak? Or was spirit a bootrom exploit like traditional JB's so that it would only need to be re-tooled for the latest firmware.

    Thanks In Advance!!

    If the iPad comes with 3.2.1, God helps you.

    If it came with 3.2, you can save the SHSH blob then upgrade to whatever firmware as much as you want.

    He can't save the SHSH blob because the signing window is over. If he could save his SHSH blog whenever he wanted, it would defeat the purpose of SHSH signing.

    If he's on 3.2 he can still back up his SHSH's.

    Time is not of the essence in that case.

    Spirit is not bootrom its something else. Something called userland.

    No he can't, when you press Save my SHSH, it asks Apple for them. Apple doesn't sign 3.2 anymore, so he'll get the 3.2.1 blobs.

    Ok so I understand that it was user land but i know that sometimes you cant downgrade like soem people cant downgrade from 4.0. I would find out how to do all that blobby stuff but my point is that if it comes with 3.2.1. then the blobs arn't going to do me much good.

    if you ordered from apple store it would prob come with 3.2.1, but if you ordered from another store they would most likely get rid of the old ones first and you will get 3.2..

    ok. thanks! so when i get it i obviously wouldnt have saved my shsh blobs but i did download the firmware before 3.2.1 was released (dont know why) so would that work? Or if i tryed to restore with my macs wifi off so that way it cant contact the apple servers?

    It needs to verify the firmware with Apple either way so nothing you do would work.
