New iPad Already Jailbroken

Dev Team member MuscleNerd just tweeted a picture of an iPad 3 running Cydia 1.1.5. While this proves that the new iPad can be jailbroken, it does not mean that there is a new jailbreak right around the corner. It could still take a few months before anything is finalized and it's made public. The screenshot below shows a jailbroken third generation iPad running iOS 5.1. MuscleNerd wrote: "Just a first step, still lots of work to do! No ETA!"

iPad 3

Earlier today we told you that the Dev Team and a few other iOS hackers were working on finding vulnerabilities in iOS 5.1. Pod2g, i0n1c and an unnamed person "close to the Cydia repo scene" have been looking into various unrelated methods to jailbreak Apple's new tablet. The Dev Team also warned new iPad owners not to update its firmware if they want to jailbreak their device in the future.

Jailbreak Community Working Hard on iPad 3

Now that the iPad 3 is officially available the next big question is: "When will it be jailbroken?" Luckily the Dev Team and a few other developers are already working on a solution. Yesterday iOS hacker i0n1c, posted several pictures of a jailbroken iPad 2 running iOS 5.1. On Friday, the Dev Team said i0n1c is using a completely unrelated method to the one they're working on.

The Dev Team wrote on their blog that "the method used to jailbreak the iPad 2 four months ago (before corona) still works even in 5.1." This is an important step in the right direction since it allows the Dev Team to get their hands on the required kernel dumps on the iPad 3. The Dev Team added that someone "close to the Cydia repo scene" is working on an entirely new jailbreak method, and pod2g is also working on finding vulnerabilities in 5.1. That's four possible chances that there will be a new jailbreak soon.

iOS 5.1 Jailbroken on the iPad 2

iPad hacker i0n1c published pictures of a jailbroken iPad 2 running iOS 5.1. i0n1c is known for releasing the iOS 4 untether that was killed when Apple released iOS 5.0. It's unknown if and when i0n1c will release his jailbreak to the public, but he did tweet: "Anyway so maybe the iPad 3 will not be jailbroken tomorrow, but on Monday or whenever I get my iPad 3."

Pod2g, the hacker responsible for both the Corona and Absinthe jailbreak tools, is also working on finding vulnerabilities in 5.1. This is good news for people who accidently updated to 5.1 and lost their jailbreaks.

You've already jailbroken your iPad 2 using pod2g's exploit, but what should you do with it now? For starters you can add basic iPhone apps that Apple didn't include with their tablets for some unknown reason.

iOS developer Ryan Petrich's Belfry tweak allows you to add Clock, Voice Memos, Stocks, Calculator, Compass and Weather to the iPad. Both the Clock and Stock apps work with the iPad's native resolution, but the rest must be zoomed in to work better with its display.

Jailbreak Tweak Enables Facebook on Your iPad

RetinaPad Boosts Resolution for 2x iPhone Apps on iPad

The ability to run iPhone apps on the iPad is great except for one thing, in full-screen mode (2x) they appear pixelated. If your iPad is jailbroken and you're tired of seeing blocky text RetinaPad is the answer. This tweak will enable Retina display mode for compatible iPhone apps, clearing up the graphics on your iPad screen.

iPhone apps designed for the iPhone 4 Retina display have increased resolution for compatibility with the newer screen, but also run in a lower resolution mode on older models like the iPhone 3GS. By default the iPad and iPad 2 run all iPhone applications in lower resolution mode, leaving the 2x display blurry.

Jailbreak iPad Runs Multiple iPhone Apps on One Screen

If you're running iOS 4.x on your iPad, you already know the device can multitask. Now jailbreak app developer Aaron Ash is taking the concept to a new level and developing software to do what some iPad owners never thought was possible. His software runs multiple iPhone applications on the same iPad screen at the same time.

As the screenshot above shows, he was able to successfully play two games of Angry Birds at the same time. Three iPhone apps can run simultaneously, but the current version of his software crashes when four apps are opened. The app could eventually make its way into the Cydia jailbreak app store and is currently named Polyonix.
