  • 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.

      This statement shows that you have yet to use an iPad yet. The device is amazing even in an unjailbroken state... and when 4.0 comes out it will rock even more.

      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!

      Yeah, it's funny. People without ipads have more problems that the people with ipads.

      I don't understand... if they didn't want to jailbreak 3.1.3 because they didn't want to waste their time because 4.0 is coming out soon... why would they "waste" their time on 3.2? 4.0 will be here for both ipad and iphone/ipod... they could have jailbroken 3.1.3 and saved alot of people some headache's...

      do we really need a jailbreak for ipads at this juncture? it appears apple, as much as i hate to say it, has done a great job with iPhone os 4. i watched the video, now in iTunes, with steve jobs demonstrating to new os using what he has dubbed as "tent poles.". the new os availabe in June for new iPhones, including the 3gs released last fall, and current ipad users in fall 2010. there are 1500 API's released in the new os. develovers are just now scratching the surface on what the new os will do. i have a feeling the new iPhone os 4 will be all encompassing. the ipad is missing messages (texting) and the ability to tether via bluetooth or usb. a good reason to jailbreak, but i will wait to see as i have wifi at home and work those two features will probably be available on the 3 gs ipad. having said all of that, jailbreaking may be something that goes the way of the dinosaur as apple adopts the jailbreakers ideas reverse engineered and packaged as their own. just sayin'

      Awesome job by GeoHot. Now if I only could justify the price of an iPad............I want one, just gotta drop the price a bit first.

      Justify the price?
      I got the wifi 16GB iPad for $499(which can be easily tethered to an Jailbroken iPhone)... not bad at all!

      think about it when looking at the price of the iPhones...
      8GB 3G iPhone $499
      16GB 3GS iPhone $599
      32GB 3GS iPhone $699

      The iPad has a larger more crisp display and is at least 2X as fast as the 3GS and the apps on it are far and beyon what the iPhone has to offer.
      I personally think the iPad is quite the bargain for what your getting and dont see it getting any cheaper in the near future.

      how are you tethering to iPad with jailbroken iPhone? my iPhone is jailbroken and I can see tethering in settings > general > network > Internet tethering. but, my phone and iPad can't see each other via bluetooth.

      this. been using it since day 1.

      in fact, i streamed a whole movie from my desktop running AirVideo Server to my iPad in another part of the city. flawless victory.

      (though MyWi is murder on the iPhone battery life)

      those that have smart phones NOT named iPhone are in the best position, as many of those phones support wifi hotspot creation by default.
