    I jailbroke my mates iPod with Spirit and now the iPod is stuck on the Apple logo. Also for some reason this jailbreak was way shorter than the one I did on my iPod a week ago.

    Try holding down the power and home buttons for about 10 seconds. Or at least until the iPod reboots. It will definitely power off, however turning on might be a completely different story.

    How did you jailbroke it? I helped 2 friends yesterday jailbreaking their iPods which running 3.1.3 without any problems.

    What I think is that you did something wrong, can you explain how you did it?

    Otherwise, try to restore it with iTunes.

    I turned the iPod on and waited until it synced etc. Then I ran Spirit.exe in 98 mode and clicked Jailbreak. The iPod said restoring and then the program told me after 10 seconds that jailbreak is complete and when the iPod restarted it wouldn't go further than the Apple logo.

    I also did the exact thing that I did last week except that today it didn't work.

    If you tried home+power (force reboot) and you still get stuck at apple logo you have no choice but than to restore.

    Restore it to 3.1.2 and try spirit again.
    Otherwise, blackra1n will do just fine.

    Oh and I had lots of trouble with spirit 1.1. I ended up using the first version and it worked like a charm

    Did you have iTunes running while jailbreaking? What iTunes (9) did you use?

    I don't believe that iTunes has anything to do with Spirit's actions. Blackra1n did, I know that, and redsn0w automatically shuts down iTunes whenever you open it.
