  • 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

      The reason I got the wifi iPad is because I already have the iPhone 3GS. I wasn't going to pay twice for 3G service if I could tether my iPhone to the the iPad.

      ^ This is the exact what I'm saying!!

      I personally am torn here. First off, the money is not the issue. My problem is that I have almost completely converted over to Apple. I have two iPhones (2G, 3GS) that are both jailbroken, and I got a unibody MBP last July. So I really have a hard time convincing myself that i need an iPad ( I mean, I already have the low end (iPhone) and the high end (MBP), can someone give me any good reasons to get an iPad?

      Ease of access, speed, screen size and its cool. I'm like you, I've got the same stuff. I don't need the iPad, I just wanted it and I love it. Don't get me wrong as I love my mbp but the iPad makes surfing so easy and I use mywi to surf wherever I want. I'm an appleholic. Get one, I don't think you'll have any regrets. So you'll get the speed in surfing with a bigazz screen along with good productivity.

      Look at all the nerds getting excited. while you guys think this is some sort of "war" between apple and the hackers, steve jobs is laughing his *** off because hes making millions on a big ipod touch. like you really think a big company like apple actually cares someone jailbreaks the ipad? infact, they almost want people to jailbreak it because they're gonna make more profit compared to the little they lose in cracked apps.

      And yes the ipad is a piece of ****. I can do everything it does with a device that fits in my pocket, which means I can carry it with me EVERYTIME. you apple brainwashed fanboys will be carrying this huge *** **** while going in clubs, to the mall, the grocery? Damn nerds. The ipad will be useful only to a really specific group of people like students, and i'm still being general.

      Just because this product is not for you doesn't mean it's a bad product and you have to hate on it. Your negativity and language are offensive...calm down.

      700,000 Americans thought it was for them in ONE DAY so I think it's appealing to a little bit more than a small niche market. Try not to be so narrow minded. Your iPod Touch is actually now a small, slow,P.O.S iPad nano IMO.

      This is the reason to get an ipad, well basically you could just buy the accessory.

      I don't understand people slagging Apple off. I always said I would never touch an Apple product, I was A through and through,until the Iphone came along,and there is no comparison. I don't want an Ipad,I got a Vaio and an iphone,I don't need something inbetween them,but good luck to all the people with them. Im still just sat here,waiting to be able to unlock my 3gs,to put my contract sim in. As the time rolls on though,the 4G might appear,and render my phone unwanted! I must admit as well,the HTC desire is turning my head somewhat,apparently it is awesome !

      it's a niche device. If you have the money and want a new gadget, then the ipad is great. It's a great experience using it as I originally wasn't going to buy one. But it's a valid argument that it's a weird device. I think the best thing to justify the cost is if you planned on buying a kindle DX...either for books, magazines, or school books... the iPad is that and far much more. Everyone buys things they don't need at some point, and IMO, the iPad is the new gen1 iPhone that everyone blasted until they used it and had to have one.

      The iPad sucks, even if you can jailbreak it, just buy a netbook that can run OSX, you save money and can multiboot OS's.
