iTunes 9.1.1: No Spirit

It looks as if we’re now entering a phase of caution about iTunes updates when it comes to jailbroken iDevices.

According to iClarified, iTunes 9.1.1 is able to detect and remove the userland variety of jailbreaks. These are the ones, like “Spirit,” that can jailbreak the iPad.

The good news is that musclenerd of the dev team affirms that 9.1.1 does not break the dev teams tools (PwnageTool & RedSn0w) on iPhones.  While I have not confirmed this personally, I am about to upgrade based on that affirmation, and will edit this blog post if I see any issues.

So in sum, you have to be more cautious about upgrading iTunes now, considering what you might use in the future as well as what you use now.  We hope that our jailbreak lords will be able to patch current versions of iTunes (as well as the iPhone firmware) so we can enjoy the best of both worlds.
