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.

Have they had a stable jailbreak for the iPhone 4S with iOS 6?
I haven't seen anything on ModMyi.

Doubt they ever release a jailbreak publicly for any of the ipads with it now being illegal.

It's gonna be a loooong time til we see iPad mini jailbreak

I for one would rather they wait for 6.1 which is going to drop anyways.

Though the iPhone 5 is awesome on its own, if & when a jailbreak is released most, if not all of the Cydia apps most likely be tailored for the 5 anyway, smh

I say release this complicated process. It's what separates the men from the boys. Remember when we were first able to put custom ringtones on the iphones? That was 21 steps. It was as simple as I could write it.

Apple's army will be on the look out with their Remote access LOL

I have a tremendous amount of respect for MuscleNerd. He's a total professional in every way. But it just isn't that easy to create public, untethered jailbreaks. It amazes me to read, over and over again, statements like: "rest assured, the devs are working on the untethered iPhone 5/iPad mini jailbreak and not to worry, it will be here soon."
Perhaps in some parallel universe that's true...?

So they can jailbreak the brand new iPad mini but they still cant jailbreak the Apple TV 3G?

Can't wait, my iPhone 5 is screaming for jailbrake, lol !!!!
