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" :)

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

Well, "loose" can be a transitive verb, so there can be "one who looses" or a "looser". However, a looser would be someone, for example, who lets loose then hounds, not someone who fails to win...

Wouldn't someone who makes something loose be a "loosener" rather than a "looser"? I would think that "looser" is what your pants are after you've been dieting. So the Biggest Loser would have pants that are looser.

Apple won't loose anything. Even they make 0 dollar from selling software if the user jailbreaks the iPad, they still make money from the selling iPad hardware itself.

The app developers will.
