  • MuscleNerd reveals that the iPad mini is Already Jailbroken


    Shortly after the iPad mini was officially released to the public, the device was already jailbroken. MuscleNerd recently tweeted a screenshot of him obtaining root access to the newly released Apple tablet. Although such proof shows that a jailbreak is capable on the device, unfortunately it is far from reach for the general public.

    According to MuscleNerd, he used the same “failbreak” method that Chpwn used to jailbreak the iPhone 5 to gain root access to the mini. To those of you who don’t remember, the failbreak method was the term Chpwn used to describe a jailbreak that can’t be released to the public due to the fact that it was complicated process. This means that you shouldn't get too excited just yet.

    The good news here is that the jailbreak developers are working on releasing a public-friendly iteration of the jailbreak soon. It should only be a matter of time before we see jailbreaks for both the iPhone 5 and iPad mini along with other older iOS devices as well. Stay tuned for more information regarding the matter.

      Unlocking is no longer an explicit DMCA exemption Neither is jailbreaking iPads (important: no exemption != illegal) is.gd/vkAVQK
      What? It's not extreme programming skills that you need to know that " != "
      means NOT EQUAL.

      I cannot imagine that apple would even want Jailbreaking to really be illegal on their devices. I think most of the Jailbreaking community might not want an idevice without a jb. Personally, using a stock iPhone/iPad for me sucks. I just see Apple losing a hell of a lot of revenue from losing the jailbreak community. And they'd lose on a crap load of ideas to eventually integrate into their iOS. Making it illegal is a huge mistake for Apple.

      Not really. The vast majority of Apple iPhone users are not Jailbreakers. We'd like to think we're a large group but we're actually not. Given that - it's a pride thing for Apple. They want everyone to have the same 'great' user experience. JBken phones tend to be buggy and slow. Apple doesn't want that. They will always be about closed platform. That will likely never change in their ethos.
