  • iPad Jailbreak: Rumor Roundup
    A quick look at the status of an iPad jailbreak.

    While there's no official word from anyone, MuscleNerd tweeted "spirit," a jailbreak solution being worked on by comex, should work on an iPad without any modification:

    "spirit" by @comex is pretty solid already. In fact, the expectation is it'll work during iPad testing as-is, no changes needed.

    Neither geohot nor the DevTeam have said anything yet... but geohot's got his iPad.

    So far saurik's only comment has been "Cydia on the iPad will happen if a jailbreak is released." Here's hoping someone releases something... but when? We've also heard from saurik's Twitter:

    I, and many others, are hoping for a delayed release of any iPad jailbreaks, to allow the same exploit to be used on 3.2 iPhones.
    Which makes sense. As we and many others have pointed out many times, there's a finite amount of exploits available on these devices, and there's no reason to use them up on minor releases (the same reason we don't have a 3.1.3 un-tethered jailbreak yet) when we're confident major ones are coming soon.

    So will there be an iPad jailbreak tomorrow? Not likely. But you can bet safely on one being released soon after the 3G models come out, or when the iPhone/iPod Touches get 3.2. iPads are in too many devs hands not to be.

      I for one hope they release it soon, there are a lot of people that have a 3.1.3 phone that can't be jailbroken. I had to have my phone replaced and you guessed it 3.1.3 installed on the replacement. My heart sank as soon as I looked to see what it was. I don't know how long I can use an iPhone with out a jailbreak.

      Well I'm a little late, I just ordered my iPad yesterday, should have it in a couple of weeks or less.

      Personally, where I'm concerned, I could care less about the JB on the iPad if it (and the iphone) were able to change the UI to add different themes. Over the last couple of months, I've pretty much found most of "my" favorite apps on the app store that were at one time only on cydia; so hopefully..."someday" they will allow us to change the themes, then pretty much for mE...jailbreaking, will be a thing of the past!
