  • iPad Jailbroken


    That didn't take long. Not at all. In fact, I've had my iPad in hand less than 24 hours.

    Using Spirit, comex's jailbreak solution, MuscleNerd has already gained root access to the iPad. An hour ago, MuscleNerd tweeted the above video and said:

    Logging into the iPad...jailbreak style! YouTube - Logging into the iPad...jailbreak style courtesy "Spirit" jailbreak by @comex
    A public, nicely packaged, Cydia including, easy-to-use solution obviously isn't here yet, and there's still a definite possibility any release will be delayed until at least the 3G iPad hits stores, or 3.2 hits the iPhone, purely as a strategic move in the jailbreakers/Apple cat-and-mouse game that may or may not exist.

    Be assured though - it is happening.

    Well that was fun Now the cross-team effort with @chronicdevteam, @comex, @chpwn and others to get *everything* working

      ...until it was re-discovered in June by a man called Jobs, as an A+ upgrade from the forgotten one

      Boo creepy foot doctor

      Lots of work left to do for 3.2 SDK compatibility

      this is a root shell instead

      ^from the video- does this mean it's actually jailbroken, or that he just got access to the device so far?

      Being jailbroken by definition is having user/root access to be able to run arbitrary code... AKA anything you want. This is typically done through SSH at first and you can run command line code as the video shows. After that it's just a matter of cleaning it up for the regular user (pwnage, redsn0w, blackra1n... etc).
