The Spirit Jailbreak for iPad has been released and from an early look, it’s pretty dead simple. Sprit is an untethered jailbreak which will hack any iProduct of yours on any 3.1.x or 3.2 release. The jailbreak is free and works instantly. You can download it for Mac or Windows here.

Before you proceed, read the warning notes on the official site. The video above is a full tutorial which explains everything and walks you though a complete Spirit Jailbreak on the iPad.

Update: ABC is said to have submitted an HTTP Streaming version to the App Store that will be less bandwidth intensive and work over 3G

ABC’s iPad app might not work over 3G because it doesn’t use the HTTP Live Streaming protocol.  According to App Advice, video producers who don’t use this format aren’t allowed by Apple to stream the video over 3G.

Here are some bits from Apple

T-Mobile full-sized SIMs require some trimming but they do work in the iPad and will get you an EDGE (not 3G — different radios) data signal if you are so inclined.  You probably won’t find a deal as good as AT&T’s, however.  Instructions can be found here.

Bonus: If you jailbreak, you can send SMS’s from Tmobile  (video below!), where on AT&T, the functionality is disabled. via MuscleNerd
