The Chronic Dev Team has revealed that it is working on enhancing Greenpois0n; the team's jailbreak software to work on the iPad.
The team has announced that work on discovering the vulnerabilities in iPhone OS 3.2 will commence as soon as the team gets hold of an iPad in a few weeks time. Chronic Dev Team has also been asking its users for donations to help them purchase an iPad for experimentation purposes. Joshua Hill, also known as p0sixninja writes to his followers on Twitter:
"You can't really develop a jailbreak for the ipad unless you have one to develop it on. It's a classic chicken and egg problem. If I had a job I would pay out of my own pocket, but iPhone exploit hunting fulltime doesn't exactly pay well (at all). Out of the hundards of hours i've donated researching, I don't think $5 or $10 from a few people is a lot to ask."
Joshua has also released a screenshot of the upcoming Greenpois0n jailbreak.
As with the iPhone, a jailbroken iPad could allow users to install applications that are not allowed on the App Store or tweaks to customize Apple's latest creation.
