  • 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 just want Backgrounder and ProSwitcher until the iPad gets 4.0. I'm not updating my 3GS to 4.0 because its already jailbroken and I don't need any of the new features. But I needs me some multitasking on my iPad!!

      Geohot doesn't release a JB = "We hate you, your so selfish"
      Geohot shows a preview of a JB that we hope to be released " OMG YOUR AWESOME WE LOVE YOU"

      ... :/

      think about it when looking at the price of the iPhones...
      8GB 3G iPhone $499
      16GB 3GS iPhone $599
      32GB 3GS iPhone $699
      Why are you comparing iPhone's? You should be comparing iPod Touches and most of the time the smaller product is usually more expensive because of it's portability. The iPad can not fit in my pocket. Overpriced in my opinion.

      Ok i have a weird question, and please forgive me if its in the wrong place, but it is about the ipad. I am a networking student and am constantly logging in and programming cisco equipment (routers, switches) through zterm on my macbook pro. Does anyone know of any program like this that could be put on the ipad once it is jailbroken? I'm hoping such a program exists to where I can use apple's 30pin to usb connector to plug in my usb to db9 adaptor. again i'm sorry if this is in the wrong place, but this seamed like the thread that it should fit in.

      oh and geohot does rule even if he doesn't release the jailbreak and I'm sure the CIA is watching him for a potential employee.

      The reason I think there not releasing it is because if he gives it to everyone now. Apple may have to time to patch our jailbreak so when 4.0 is released no one can jailbreak it

      Maybe he's finalizing the new jailbreak or maybe he's got a specific date. I like hearing about the progress.

      Im not saying Im not excited about the jailbreak because I most cerainly am... but to say it has no usefullness in an unjailbroken state is a false statement. This thing rocks!
      Exactly.
