  • 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.

      It's funny how it drives you crazy that we have our iPads. I'm not going to be sorry for buying one or take offense from you calling us "fucktards".(whatever that means anyway). I can afford it so I got it, kids like you wouldn't understand. I, like most people, bought it because we wanted it; the same reason I bought me a 2009 Harley Davidson last year. I didn't need it, It doesn't keep me warm in the winter and I probably could've got a car for a lot cheaper. But who cares I'm cruising a f*ckin bad *** bike and you're not! enjoy your vista based laptop you candy a**!

      It's funny seeing these angry little kids get mad because people are spending their hard-earned money on stuff they enjoy.

      I don't see what their problem is. They must spend all day watching Ipad stuff on Youtube and get very bitter and resentful

      I think their problem is the same as mine - jealousy.

      I can't afford one at the moment so will just have to watch while you guys have all the fun. My local Apple store opens next week with 10% off everything on opening day - but it's not released here yet anyway, otherwise I might have been tempted...

      I'll just have to start saving

      Enjoy!

      I'm in 2 other forums doing what a few of you have had to do in this forum. Smack a few folks virtually upside their heads for calling the iPad something it's not.

      For me honestly I can wait for the j/b; because I have my iphone jailbroken and thats more than enough for now. The iPad is for work, the amount of paper I avoid using for things thanks to a device like this makes life alot easier and more affordable.

      Does it replace my mbp or my iphone? Of course not, does it give me something I can use when travelling to various work sites daily without needing to pack my mbp? damn right

      do you guys ever think we'll reach a point where we have to have an older device for jailbreak to work? Similar to PSP's... I think it would suck if we get to a point were jailbreaks aren't possible anymore. Will we prevail and continue finding a way? I sure hope so

      Bravo- I am waiting on the good word from you

      I kind of feel bad for my MBP. I haven't touched it since I synced the iPad with it. Poor little fellar

      The funny thing is that every time I am waiting for a JB on a new device, it seems like Tom Petty - The Waiting keeps playing over and over again on Pandora

      You got issues bro! ...and by the way, its not an oversized iPhone, its an oversized iPod Touch; if your'e going to flame, at least know what you're talking about first!

      I would leave you a little obscene language...but that darn Poseidon would just smudge it out!
