  • MuscleNerd Tweets Pictures of Jailbroken New iPad

    The iPhone Dev Team has already successfully jailbroke the iPad, but don't mistake this as an indication of the imminent release of a jailbreak tool.

    MuscleNerd tweeted photos of the Jailbreak minutes ago. However, the tweet came with the disclaimer "Just a first step, still lots of work to do! No ETA!"

    Yesterday noted hacker I0n1c posted pictures of an iOS 5.1 jailbreak on an iPad and the iPhone Dev Team posted the following response to the state of the iOS 5.1 and new iPad jailbreak.

    It appears that there are several potential paths to a jailbreak:

    ● We can confirm that the method used to jailbreak the iPad2 4 months ago still works even in 5.1. That means we'll at least be able to get our foot in the door to get the required kernel dumps on the iPad3. That's an important step, but by no means is it the end of the story.
    ● Those of you following @i0n1c may have noticed he's already tweeted pictures of his iPad2 jailbroken at 5.1. As far as we know, he's using a method completely unrelated to the one mentioned above. That would be great news!
    ● We've also seen bits and pieces of an entirely different jailbreak method being investigated by someone close to the Cydia repo scene.
    ● That's three different angles, and we're not even including the continuous work @pod2g makes towards a new jailbreak!
    Hopefully the new iPad and iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreaks move as fast as they appear to be moving. Retina Display tweaks and apps on an iPad sound too delicious to wait much longer.

    @i0n1c posted a video of the new iPad jailbroken. Hopefully the friendly competition between hackers can create an atmosphere of collaboration to get the new iPad untethered Jailbreak in a timely fashion.

      I agree with you on this. First thing I thought of but I bet they will be getting the dream together on this just like before. I'll donate once it comes out for sure again.
