  • GeoHot Reveals iPad Jailbreak


    He "makes it Rai1n on them... iPads."

    Yes, indeed.

    It looks like Geohot, the accomplished iPhone jailbreaker behind such jailbreaking resources as blackra1n, blacksn0w has been monumentally busy, building upon iPad jailbreak revelations to go with the "collection." Revealed in a tweet, this weekend Geohot also showed off the iPad running in verbose.



    The crowning tweet to announce the verbose feat? “Verbose iPads look cool.” Naturally, a screen shot accompanied the proclamation to verify the claim. All told, its been a productive few days for Geohot, who just yesterday, similarly unveiled the keys for iPhone firmware.

    Of course, until Geohot dishes on the details of jailbreaking the iPad, all we can do is marvel at a distance. But it's enthralling nonetheless - a continuation of the good news that came only days ago when the iPhone Dev Team proclaimed to have jailbroken the iPad via the ‘Spirit’ jailbreak. Yes, it's been a hot and heavy week for the jailbreak community, and this weekend is already bringing with it an even bigger helping of excitement.

      I think its cool to have it jailbroken but once 4.0 and such then Proswitcher and backgrounder will be redundant and highly recommend adblock.

      4.0 is months off people... The need for an iPad jailbreak is current and needed now. The 4.0 jailbreak will not be public until the final version is released and the unlock wont even be worked on until they figure out what the final baseband version will be so stop wining about 4.0.

      And the ipad FINALLY becomes useful. If some neat Jailbreak things come out, then I might actually buy one, depending on the jailbreak functionality of 4.0

      He drove Sony to get rid of the OtherOS function in firmware 3.21 and so he's currently working on a custom firmware to reinstate that function, which hasn't been released to the community yet. What WAS released was full read/write access to the hypervisor, something that's of use to few people seeing as how the PS3 modding scene is literally non-existant
