iOS Hacker Winocm Demonstrates Triple Boot of iOS 5.1, 6.1.3, 7.0.6 on iPad 2
Well-known iOS hacker Winocm, known for his efforts in the p0sixspwn jailbreak
, has once again demonstrated his talents in his latest YouTube video. Just recently, Winocm showed us a successful untethered boot on an iPhone 4 running iOS 7.1
, but his latest YouTube video demonstrates a successful triple boot of iOS 5.1, iOS 6.1.3, and iOS 7.0.6 on an iPad 2.

Winocm's little trick here is very interesting. He moves through iOS 5.1, 6.1.3, and 7.0.6 in the video one after another almost seamlessly without any restoring necessary. It does appear, however, that the device needed to be tethered to a computer for this to work, so it's certainly not like dual-booting operating systems on a personal computer where you can simply select an operating system and boot up to it.
This is a really interesting proof of concept and it's always really cool to see what the hacker is capable of.
Winocm is expected to begin working for Apple later this year, as he announced in February
