Less than an hour ago, the doors of some third party retailers such as Wal Mart opened their doors to excited customers waiting for the new iPad. Already, the Dev Team has released a blog post with some info about what we can expect as far as a jailbreak for this new device in concerned.
There are a few bits of good news already.
- We can confirm that the method used to jailbreak the iPad 2 4 months ago 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.
