    Actually, Spirit requires the device to be activated already, so it won't get passed the screen.

    Best way to get around it is to use Redsn0w.

    Btw you might wanna fix your link.

    Yup. Make sure you get the correct version for your device/FW.
    If there's an option to activate tick the box, if not it should do it by itself.

    yes.
    Use Redsn0w.
    If your iPhone has the newer bootrom, then it's going to be tethered.
    If it's the old bootrom, it will be untethered.

    You're gonna have to jailbreak and see.
    You can turn it off, but to turn it back on you're gonna have to run redsn0w every time.
