  • Greenpois0n to Serve Up iPad Jailbreak?


    Within the last few hours, the blogosphere has lit up with reports about jailbreak software for the iPad. Since Apple announced the tablet, the jailbreak community has been entertaining the jailbreak potential of the iPad. p0sixninja of the Chronic Dev Team has now presented a Greenpois0n screenshot that purportedly shows the arrival of support for jailbreaking the iPad.

    The Team is poised and ready to jailbreak the tablet as soon as they get their hands on one in a few weeks. p0sixninja has already begun tweeting what amounts to a fundraising campaign in order to obtain an iPad so the experimentation can begin.

    if I had a job I would pay out of my own pocket. but iphone exploit hunting fulltime doesn't exactly pay well (at all)
    While it sounds like a slam dunk jailbreak certainty, if and how the iPad can be hacked still depends on a number of factors, like the yet to be determined exploits. But despite the increasing challenges behind jailbreaking firmware, Apple's iPad will likely be far from impenetrable. And the jailbreak community is naturally stoked about the potential of a jailbroken iPad. We already know Cydia developers are chomping at the bit to dig in on the iPad and their opportunity to do so seems to be closer now than ever.

    For now, all signs point to an Pad jailbreak for OS 3.2 coming very, very soon, and likely with the assistance of GreenPois0n.

      If they are smart, they will hold all exploits until the 3G iPad is released. This way Apple cannot correct any bootrom exploits.

      I don't know...I've been hearing stuff about greenpois0n for months and I still haven't even seen it...As far as I know it's not even available for the iPhone/iPod...so what makes you think it will be available for the iPad?

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but I highly doubt that greenpois0n is for real.

      They're enforcing such tight security measures for two reasons:

      1. They're tired of pirates
      2. They don't want LEGITIMATE iPhone users being conned into downloaded some kind of scam disguised as a "feature pack" or "pimp-your-iPhone" deal that is actually just a proprietary jailbreak that might crash the phone. I mean, this is what happens to PCs all the time. You've seen the popup ads: "248 errors detected on your system!! Click OK to fix!!" It's a security measure, and since it's a cell phone and not a personal computer (which HAS to be open), they can. Still confused? Imagine if advertisement corporations had the ability to make "toolbars" like Internet Explorer is famous for.

      In short,

      YEAH! iPad jailbroken by GREENpois0n and CHRONIC dev team...

      This may just be the HIGH point of my day. And here I thought the idea of a jailbroken iPad was UP IN SMOKE. I gotta let this news BAKE in a little. I hope they WEED out any issues to bypass the need for a tethered jailbreak.

      ^_^

      Happy St. Patrick's Day!

      I'd be wary of this jailbreak solution. You should be skeptical, especially seeing as he's asking for donations.

      melech518 is right...bootrom is messy, tethered jailbreaks and dongles are not cool...so patience is truly a virtue in this particular cat and mouse game...
