Breaking News: iPad mini Has Been Jailbroken

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 🙂 (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’s not clear if the jailbroken iPad mini was running iOS 6.0.1 or iOS 6.0. It is also not clear what progress, the jailbreak dream team have made since the last update.

It is currently possible to only jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G (tethered) running iOS 6.0.1/iOS 6.0.

We’ll update the post as soon as we get any further, so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or follow us on FacebookTwitterGoogle+ or subscribe to our RSS feed.
