Third-Generation iPad Jailbroken on Launch Day

As noted by Slash Gear, iOS jailbreak specialist MuscleNerd has apparently already jailbroken the new iPad that launched today, Tweeting a couple of screenshots showing the jailbroken device with Cydia installed.


MuscleNerd notes that this is simply the first step in the process of releasing a public tool for jailbreaking the new device, but it seems that progress should come relatively rapidly.

When I read stuff like this, I can't help but imagine that working in any form of digital security job must be frustrating as hell... :p

This is an ongoing chess game. As for "winning" I know lots of people that make six figure incomes in the information security arena.
Loosers?

I know many people over the past decades that started in the "blackhat" arena, and then went on to run companies doing information security.
Loosers?

These people are currently designing the information security systems that people are learning how to attack.
Loosers?

If people that do information security don't "win", how come there has to be new exploits?

I'm obviously not understanding what it means to "win," or "loose."





"Loosers" is not the right word, if in fact it is a word at all. You mean "Loser" :)

Excellent news!

I'll say it again iOS 5 is seriously boring without a jailbreak!

I don't need training wheels Apple!

3.1 million pixels of proof.

Hopefully they'll get it and iOS 5.1 untethered soon.

Just picked mine up. I am super excited to see the jailbreak. Hopefully it won't take as long as it did for the 4S to actually roll out to users. I would be more than okay with a Tethered. As stated above, iBooks is a must, though.

Sometimes I don't understand why Apple even tries, when we have these brilliant minds on the JailBreak teams. Apple can't hire them all.
