It looks like the iPad mini, which went on sale yesterday has already been jailbroken. It doesn’t come as a big surprise as iOS hacker planetbeing had managed to jailbreak iPhone 5 on the same day it went on sale.
MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev team has just tweeted that the same method was used to jailbreak Apple’s new iPad mini.
Here’s his tweet:
the “failbreak” from @phoenixdev @chpwn in action on an iPad-mini http://t.co/ucWGGGP0 (why failbreak? see @planetbeing’s timeline)
planetbeing had previously explained that the failbreak was almost like a tethered jailbreak but needs a developer account.
It is currently possible to only jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G (tethered) running iOS 6.0.1/iOS 6.0.
