  • Apple Store Display iPad Jailbroken, I Smell a Movement


    JailBreakMe 3.0s release is probably the easiest way to jailbreak an iDevice, and the first to allow the iPad 2 to be jailbroken. I suppose then it was only a matter of time before someone was able to jailbreak one of Apple's iPad 2 in-store displays.

    One of 9to5Mac's readers was able to bypass the smart sign display application using the secret gestures that aren't so secret. Once the user bypassed the smart sign display application they were able to jailbreak the iPad 2 via mobile Safari using JailbreakMe 3.0. Apple already confirmed earlier this week they would be patching the PDF exploit JailbreakMe 3.0 uses in the next update of iOS.

    My question then is this. How many of these display iPad 2's will Jon Q Public Jailbreak before Apple updates iOS and kills the dream forever?

      The only thing I could see this being enjoyable for is actually using it to apply a windows theme from Cydia and watching the Apple staff find it like that? I would probably get a laugh from that!

      That would be funny. I installed Cydia on an iPad at a verizon stall in the mall

Hell, back in the day you had to JB your iPhone to send picture messages. Video recording? JB app. Tethering, battery percentage, volume button as camera button? All first JB apps. Apple may perfect iOS integration, but JB community innovates.
      Agreed

      I jailbroke an iPad 2 today inside the Apple Store. I used the wifi hotspot on my phone, went to jailbreakme.com and installed cydia. It was a good'ol time.
