iPad Is Already Jailbroken

iPad Jailbroken

That was fast! It has been just over 24 hours since Apple iPad has been available and it has already been jailbroken.

MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev team has just announced that he has managed to port the “Spirit” jailbreak to the iPad.

MuscleNerd announced the breaking news with the following tweet:

initial porting of "Spirit" jailbreak by @comex to iPad

He also posted a photo of his achievement:

iPad Jailbroken

He tweeted:

Logging into the iPad…jailbreak style! :) courtesy "Spirit" jailbreak by @comex

MuscleNerd has also posted a video, which shows him logging into the iPad remotely:

You might remember that comex had also demonstrated an untethered jailbroken iPod Touch 3rd gen few days back. comex has clarified that the "Spirit" jailbreak is not the same as the userland jailbreak used for the untethered jailbreak, which could be done using Mobile Safari.

But this means that the iPhone Dev team could release the software tools to jailbreak iPad sometime in the future. MuscleNerd points out that there is still work to be done to get to that stage:

Well that was fun :) Now the cross-team effort with @chronicdevteam, @comex, @chpwn and others to get *everything* working

We’ll keep you posted if there are any further updates so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.

    NICEEE:D:D:D fast indeed

  • Twanger

    Very fast :)

  • TimW

    Well done Dev Team
    Nice job by Comex :)

    Now where's EgoHotz's effort then?

  • ZeppelinLed

    All good

  • Craig

    Yeah nice job, progress indeed, re Geo yeah good point Tim, too busy posing for pics lining up to buy it instead of hacking it

  • Lance

    iPad is hacked but not 3GS models yet?! Good job guys, but seriously why can't we roll out an iPhone 3GS hack?

  • Sucio

    I was wondering the exact same thing

  • ZeppelinLed

    Well 3GS owners have never been top priority, and hopefully we'll reap some benefits from this, fingers crossed.

  • ZeppelinLed

    **3GS owners on 3.1.3 i mean.

  • Joe

    the thing I need on my iPhone

    is tethering and will never jailbreak
    coz those hackers sh!t don t know
    how to jailbreak 3.1.3.to have it
    and not release it is a lie.

  • Drdirty

    Still vaporware. The so called program to jailbreak the ipad is not even released. Hahah. Just another bunch of useless blog messages and empty promises about jailbreaking.

    When the program is released to us all to jailbreak the 3gs under 3.1.3 05.12.01 and the ipad, and people are using said program, then and only then will praise be due.

    Until then, it is all bullshit watercooler meaningless talk and empty promises.

    Will be funny if these holes are patched by apple in the next OS release and we wasted all this time.

    Gotta love geohot gay looking photo he twitted from the ipad lone with some spanky trailtrash chick.

  • RickT

    In reply to Craig and TimW: So you are taking shots at Geohotz, I must've missed the link to your jailbreak. I'm sure you both have one.

  • Mike

    Because the same hack that will work for the iPad 3G will work for the iPhone 3Gs. The dev team will not release the hack so that apple will not fix the hack for the upcoming iPad 3G's. This way all devices can be jailbroke.

  • Mike

    Well, the name you chose sure fit your description.

  • 3.1.3GS

    Fair comment, so realistically its fair to expect a 3.1.3 GS jailbreak late April?

  • wolverinemarky

    there wont be a 3.1.3 jailbreak the next jb will come out with OS 3.2 i am sure there not gonna JB everyone of apples minor updates

  • wolverinemarky

    its people like u that shouldnt even be allowed to jb ur dont appreciate the hard work these guys do to help u out for free. if you need a 3.1.3jb do a google search and go buy one u deserve to be ripped off.

  • NoNo

    I thought GeoHotz was done working on the iPhone. I know for a fact he is trying to hack the PS3.

    Anyways, people need to stop talking sh!t about the hacking teams "not working fast enough". They do it for free! Leave them alone.

  • 3.1.3GS

    yeah you could have a point there, wishful thinking on my part

  • hxclos

    And what good would it do to release a 3GS jailbreak for 3.1.3 if we all know Apple is going to be releasing a new OS update soon? Oh, you're mad cuz you just either bought a 3GS oooor you where stupid enough to update when everyone said not to.

  • rhinouk

    if they dont get payed what happens to the donations.and all the silly bickering and snide remarks wont get it any sooner so why dont you all chill and wait. then when you get it dont forget to donate.then no one can say you had it free.

  • rhinouk

    sorry that reply was to Drdirty… not wolverine.

  • jack1083

    that was real fast only out for day in now already jailbroken cool

  • urherenow

    Do you know the meaning of the word donation? It's optional, stupid. You can have it free if you want to you cheap bastard.

  • TimW

    Sorry, must have forgotten to add the link, Maybe Craig has it??

  • TimW

    So far, their Twitters state "Release after 3G iPad"
    Some state it's Apple waiting for the Jailbreak tools, a role reversal for once
    Time will tell

  • Mike

    Now your comment makes sense.

  • Mike

    May i ask, how many of those commenting on this article bought or ordered and iPad? Just curious. I haven't for lack of need. I read real books and not digital books just because i love the connection i get with the literary world especially when i am holding a leather bound Sir Walter Scott. I also use my computer for and kind of projects. I can see where those constantly on the go could really use one. Anyway, how many of y'all bought an iPad?

  • Craig

    Yep, keeping it close to my chest like Geo

  • RickT

    Well said

  • Thepartyguy

    Yeah!!! WTF !!!! Or only geohot? !!!

  • NoNo Shoves His Cock Into urherenow's Mom

    Ok first of all, I didn't say GeoHot wasn't working on it, I said I wasn't sure if he was or not and that I knew he was working on the Playstation 3. So as far as that goes you can suck my cock you ignorant prick.

    It's people like you that visit this site that makes it stupid. Talking shit over the internet is really easy isn't it? I suppose you try and "bully" online cause your a ugly fat fuck who sits and refreshes GeoHotz blog all day.

    "Get a freaking life.. or better yet, go take your life." So nice of you. If I didn't have a life I would probably know everything about iPhones like you do right? So why don't you go take your own advice and play in traffic.

  • CapTan Ameerika

    I want one, but am waiting till the 3G models arrive.

  • TimW

    Seems like my posts have been deleted!!
    Upset someone did I??

  • http://profile.typepad.com/iphonehacks iPhoneHacks

    TimW,

    We have removed some comments that were not relevant to the article.

  • TimW

    Thanks Guys, was thinking it was one sided.
    Only respond in kind though
    will attempt to stick ' on topic ' from now on

  • TimW

    I'm waiting for the UK release to get one.
    Doubt I'll que for one though
    Just like the thought of surfing the net on it as I do most of it on my 3Gs. Bigger screen appeals to me, not worried about 3G as I'm in a location where 'hotspots' are abundant.
    Not into the 'posing' factor either, probably just use it at home or away on hols

  • zedsefi

    I am in the UK and I fancy having one, maybe I can afford to buy one in the summer, but I am still hesitating as I know the iPad is not a notebook replacement (but it is something so cool to have, I know).

    Maybe I will intend to buy a WiFi version only, I do not need the 3G as I can create WiFi network from my iPhone 3GS using MyWi. Besides I am a University student so hopefully I can find some benefits by owning the iPad (and to show off for the purpose of hearing the WOOOW and OOOOOHHH, hahaha).

    Good news iPhonehacks, keep them coming ;)

  • zedsefi

    Another problem is, new iPhone could be announced and released in the summer as well, now I know my contract will not expire anytime soon but I can still sell my 3GS if the new iPhone comes with irresistible features! .. I will be really broke if I want to go for both iDevices!! so maybe I will buy one and delay the other (depends on the device features and jailbreak ability status for sure).

  • TimW

    Same boat here, new iPhone or new iPad?????
    Other half says "holiday (honeymoon) to somewhere hot" I still think an ipad will win as I'm real pleased with this Gs.
    Like you, I'd create a hotspot if needed, but Swansea has soooooo many free wifi 'hotspots' to tap into, there's talk of copying Swindon, where free community wifi was trialed (check the lamposts if yr in Swindon town centre)

  • Tagart

    ROFL XD…. I wish I couldve seen the original post he left to get that response. Damn shame the moderator deleted it. :-(

    Anyway, I will confirm what you said about geohot, he has moved on to the ps3. In my eyes though I think that he still has some kind of passion for apple and that's why he showed his jailbreak. It's like an addiction, you say you're gonna quit but then you always come back for that "one last time."

  • anonymous

    blow it out your ass noboday cares about what you have to say DrDirtyDickLicker

  • Tagart

    LOL, that's new to me, are they really deleted? I saw those ones wehere you were talking about going on vacation with an ipad and whatnot.

  • Twanger

    But if one of these hacks is a one time use for 3.1.3 surely they may as well roll it out, or am i mistaken?

  • TimW

    Yeah, deleted as my response to a 'certain individual' was 'a tiny bit' off topic, lmao
    Fair comment to the Admin though, I fully accept their decision to delete both sides of the comments.
    Some don't like the fact my Admiration & Respect sits with the DevTeam not 'the other one' ;)

  • TimW

    Their hoping that by witholding the 'hole' Apple won't plug it on the next release.
    As soon as the tools become available, Apple's engineers will start devising and recoding re-writes to ensure it won't happen again.
    MuscleNerd (DevTeam) stated that the 3G will always be vunerable to their tools, but the 3Gs & iPad are the main targets now.
    With OS4 around the corner, it won't be long before the balance is restored
    hth :)

  • http://twitter.com/jnotiq mr Notiq

    ..I don't know about you guys, but my 3.1.3 3GS is jailbroken and working completely fine. There's no unlock, but as long as you have AT&T, you're golden. From what I read you need to have 3.1.2 and be already jailbroken. But, I actually used this 'after' I upgraded to 3.1.3 using sn0wbreeze and got stuck in a Recovery Mode loop. Sn0wbreeze blows 3 balls by the way. But the thing I used is a custom ipsw made by some Russians. You have to search on google for the file:

    iPhone2,1_3.1.3_7E18_VTX_v1_BBUpdate_Restore.ipsw

    This is where I found out about it and the instructions:

    http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?threadid=1617703

    I didn't get the errors he was talking about. From what I remember everything just went smoothly, but check it out.

  • jo

    My thoughts exactly RickT

  • jo

    If you are so bitter, may I suggest getting to work on it yourself. Instead of insulting others.

  • Craig

    How long does it usually take Apple to approve apps then? I'm thinking of Opera for iPhone to be precise? My gut feeling is they will reject it for being superior to Safari, hope they dont tho..

  • TimW

    I'm hoping they're waiting till after 4.0, or 'with' 4.0 :-)

  • Craig

    Yeah maybe, i'm def pro Opera, looks good :)

  • TimW

    You must have an earlier 3Gs, the ones who can't JB are owners with models from MC (after a certain serial no. too)
    Mine is an MC132B model, so if I lost my JB I'd be one of the many patiently awaiting the DevTeam & Comex's tools to arrive.
    For your model, goto Settings – Genral – About – Scroll to Model

    I will add for any 'New to JailBreaking' that saving your SHSH to Cydia when asked, CAN and WILL increase your chances of keeping your JB, might take you a few tries to restore your device, and if I can do it, so can you. The 'how-to' guides are available

  • TimW

    I use it on my other half's N97, it's faster than safari, by a long shot, taken to using on most of my Laptop's now.
    Be nice to eek a bit more load speed over 3G too.
    Can't see the carriers worrying to much, but could be a 'double edged sword' cut down on bandwidth Traffic so 3G networks get quicker for most, but then reducing revenue from less data transmission from payasyougo customers.
    I personally think two things, released on or after 4.0, or reject it on the grounds of 'does what an existing app does' Hope it makes it though, I'd happily pay a quid for it, free would be nice too :-)
    Just keep fingers crossed

  • Craig

    I read that 'MC' 3GS's are tethered only, yet mine is MC131B and when it was JB it was def non-tethered, however it is a 936 serial, so is the pre 940 serial the key to having a non-tethered JB at the mo do you know Tim?

  • TimW

    I recall that MC models released with 3.1.2 preinstalled (might have been 3.1) from serial no xx940onwards had the new bootrom that resulted in a Tethered JailBreak.
    The link provided by mr Notiq relates to an MB model being JB'd and as far as I can gather, the MC models now outnumber MB's by 3 to 1
    Did you have your hashes stored on Cydia? If you did it's relatively easy to restore to 3.1.2, hardest part I found was useing notepad as a one time file editor (create direct shortcut link for notepad from Desktop to etc/hosts is easiest way to add Saurik's server address, as soon as file is edited, shortcut link can't re-edit)
    Download a STANDARD 3.1.2 IPSW, not a custom
    one, edit etc/hosts, click shift + restore, select dl'd IPSW & it should work.
    Saying all that, can't remember if you had your hashes saved, still, if you did have, I'd give it a go anyway, nothing to lose :) I would lmao

  • Tagart

    Dude if you're referring to the pic here,

    http://img535.yfrog.com/i/giy.jpg/

    then that sounds like a bit of jealousy bc that chick looks attractive to me but then again maybe you're gay or even worse you're a wannabe nerd without a girlfriend and you're just mad at the world that he has one and you don't. I could go on but I won't, not quite sure which angle you really are trying to approach that with though so go you but it's like that anonymous guy said, no one cares.

  • Craig

    Cheers for the reply Tim. I first jb my phone (7 months ago approx) I was totally naive about it, but, I do recall seeing some kind of message on my Cydia homescreen reffering to something being saved by Cydia but I'm not sure what!!!
    Do you know if back then Cydia auto saved shsh's at all? Because if it did I may be in luck?

  • TimW

    Have a go at it, just follow Saurik's guide (can't link as always on iPhone)
    I'll email the Admin later and ask if they can pass my email addy on to you, be easier to send all in one go, got loads of info on it, and have done mine back to 3.1.2, if you get stuck then it's easier to get quicker response :)

  • Craig

    Thanks mate, try use the email on this message if poss as I usually use others. Still not sure if saurik saved my shsh tho, how can I find that out do u think?!

  • http://twitter.com/jnotiq mr Notiq

    Ah I see..ur right..

  • Craig

    In fact you could go direct to this email if you wish pls mate
    craig294@gmail.com :)

  • TimW

    Email sent :-)

  • TimW

    Some useful info in that link tho, appreciated :)

  • Karl

    it does make sense though… if there is an unlock then throw it out.. if they're waiting for newer version than whats the point of having this jb.
