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:
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
