Geohot Has Jailbroken iPad; Blackra1n For iPad Could Be Coming Soon

iPhone OS 4.0

Geohot, the iPhone jailbreaking expert who has released popular jailbreaking and unlocking tools like blackra1n, blacksn0w has just announced that he has jailbroken iPad.

In a post, tweeted an hour back, he has shown his iPad running in verbose mode to confirm it is jailbroken.

Geohot announced his latest achievement via the following tweet:

“Verbose iPads look cool”

He has also published a screenshot to prove it:

In verbose mode, you see all the stuff that happens behind the scene when you reboot the iPad.

Since Geohot has managed to boot the iPad into verbose mode, it confirms that he has jailbroken it.

Yesterday, he had also published the keys for iPhone OS 3.2 firmware in a post:

KEY: 1E3A1CA2F45D15452B16B9FE0A2C214A0AF897F09EE269F8E5967FC74B1022AC

And of course, the bootrom:

We will have to wait and see when Geohot will release tools to jailbreak iPad and also jailbreak iPhone OS 3.1.3 as users are eagerly waiting for it.

Earlier in the week, iPhone Dev Team had also jailbroken the iPad using the ‘Spirit’ jailbreak.


Geohot has published another photo on his blog to show that he has jailbroken iPad with Blackra1n. You can also see Cydia installed on the iPad.

It indicates that Geohot could release Blackra1n for iPad very soon (though he has indicated that he might end up calling it something else).
