The excitement over the new version of iPad from Apple is going to get more crazy as news of the device’s jailbreak is coming out straight from the iOS scene.
It seems that someone is hard at work in producing a new method of jailbreak according to Dev-team’s latest blog post.
“There are a few bits of good news already.
- We can confirm that the method used to jailbreak the iPad2 4 months ago (before corona) still works even in 5.1. That means we’ll at least be able to get our foot in the door to get the required kernel dumps on the iPad3. That’s an important step, but by no means is it the end of the story.
- Those of you following @i0n1c may have noticed he’s already tweeted pictures of his iPad2 jailbroken at 5.1. As far as we know, he’s using a method completely unrelated to the one mentioned above. That would be great news!
- We’ve also seen bits and pieces of an entirely different jailbreak method being investigated by someone close to the Cydia repo scene.
That’s three different angles, and we’re not even including the continuous work @pod2g makes towards a new jailbreak! As always, keep in mind this is very preliminary progress, and it’s impossible to predict how or when these things turn out. The only thing you need to remember is the golden rule:
Don’t update your new iPad3 past whatever iOS it comes shipped with“
You hear it right folks, do not update your new iPad’s iOS or it might harm your jailbreaking needs in the future.
In other news, pod2g has been seen gathering crash reports with the help of his Twitter followers, asked about the new iPad jailbreak, here’s what he said:
@Pod18G Hi, I’ve no clue, but I’m working actively on finding vulnerabilities in 5.1.
