iPhone Dev Team Says iPad 3 Jailbreak Has a Few Options

by on March 15th, 2012

This evening, our beloved iPhone Dev Team has posted on thier official blog, that there are a few avenues towards a possible iPad 3 jailbreak. The iPhone Dev Team have been responsible for the Pwnage Tool and Redsn0w jailbreaks, and have also had a hand in the Spirit and JailbreakMe.com jailbreaks.

Interestingly enough, it seems that the same exploit used to jailbreak the iPad, on iOS 5.0.1 is still present in iOS 5.1, and might be  able to be used to jailbreak the iPad 3. They also commented on @i0nic’s recent pictures of his iPad 2 jailbroken on iOS 5.1, saying that this is yet another exploit.

Here’s what the Dev Team had to say:

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

Let’s hope they can get this figured out sooner than later. Would love to have the new iPad jailbroken!

    I jailbroke my original iPhone 3GS and though i loved apps like SBSettings, I haven’t jailbroken my iPhone 4 yet since I dreaded the “sadface” screen which would reorganize all of my app icons on the springboard whenever the phone crashed…

    Is anybody able to tell me if the crashing has been fixed with the latest jailbreaks?  If so I will certainly look into JB on my iPhone 4 and iPad 2…
