Progress in finding an iPad 3 jailbreak is being made at an incredible rate. As many of you have probably heard, few days ago i0n1c released photos showing a jailbroken iPad 2 running iOS 5.1. Today, ion1c tweeted "Okay my iPad3,3 is now untethered jailbroken...". Hours later he released a video showcasing the New iPad aka iPad 3 jailbreak running on iOS 5.1. The video shows i0n1c opening a variety of Apps, opening Cydia, restarting the iPad 3, and then opening Cydia again without a tethered boot. This is proof that i0n1c has indeed found an exploit to use for the iPad 3 jailbreak on iOS 5.1. This also means that iPhone 4S and iPad 2 will be soon getting iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak. The video showing a working iPad 3 jailbreak can be seen below.
As you can see, this iPad 3 jailbreak seems to be working quite seamlessly. i0n1c also gave an explanation about why he covered the lower left corner of the screen - "btw... I am covering the lower corner of Cydia on startup because it loves to show the devices UUID".
In addition the iPad 3 jailbreak discovered by i0n1c, there are 2 other jailbreaks that are being made from other exploits found. These other jailbreaks will come from iPhone-Dev Team and chpwn/phoenixdev. The iPad 3 jailbreak for iOS 5.1, which will be applicable to other A5 devices (iPad 2 and iPhone 4S) as well, should be available within a week or so. We at Jaxov will be covering detailed iPad 3 jailbreak tutorial as soon as it is released!Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
