While the new iPad has not yet officially gone on sales by Apple until tomorrow morning in the App Retail Stores. The users around the country start reporting that they have just got their hands on the device exclusively, a bit quicker than the folks who have been lining-up in front of the Apple’s Retail Stores from many hours, and days. The device appeared to be exclusively provided by the Walmart, eight hours before the official launch of the new iPad by Apple in the retail stores across the world.

As the new iPad start rolling into the user’s hands, here at a Jailbreaking flavored blog, we have been asked by many geniuses minded readers that “when will they able to jailbreak the new iPad?” In the past, we have seen many familiar questions from the readers, especially on the launches of the new devices. However, as reported by Apple’s own self, the new iPad is nearly carrying the same processor, but with just an increase in the GPU of the processor. The processor structure of the newer device is appeared to be the same as iPad 2 have, so it depends on the iOS hackers team, and the discovery of the kernel bugs in the newer device We believe that folks out in the jailbreaking community will be found out bugs quickly, as newer devices from Apple are mostly kind of beta devices / and beta iOS versions for the newer devices.

iPad 3 Jailbreak

Right on the time, it is reported that iPhone DevTeam had already touches the exclusive point with the Jailbreakers on their official blog, with stating some really good news for the iPad 3 Jailbreak. Beginning with Absinthe, according to the iPhone DevTeam testing, the Absinthe untethered jailbreak exploit is still working on the iPad 2 on iOS 5.1, but requires some extra efforts to make it work on the iOS 5.1.

iPhone DevTeam in their post exclusively wants to warn the users who going to get their hands on the new iPad tonight, or tomorrow earlier in the morning with an official launch. According to the iPhone Dev Team, it appears that there will be some new iPad devices, which may come with software prior to iOS 5.1. So they want to remind you to make sure, not the upgrade its firmware, while connecting the device to iTunes for the first time.


“There are a few bits of good news already:

  • We can confirm that the method used to jailbreak the iPad2 4 months ago still works even in 5.1. That means that we’ll at least be able to get our foot in the door to get the required kernel dumps on the ipad 3. That’s an important step, but by no means is it the end of the story.
  • Those of you following @i0n1c man have noticed he’s already tweeted pictures of his iPad 2 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.”

It seems that they want to bring the untethered jailbreak for the iPad 3 on the iOS 5.0.1, as some devices may be coming with iOS 5.0.1, so you can confirm jailbreaking with testing the Absinthe or Corona on your device.
