iPad jailbroken just hours after launch

A sign of what's to come

| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: Apr 5, 2010 8:28 am

As was the case for the iPhone, we all knew it would be just a matter of time before Apple's iPad would get the jailbreak treatment; but maybe not this quickly!

 

It's been accomplished in a matter of hours beyond the launch by a bunch of cluey folk' from the iPhone Dev Team which gives the ability to bring Cyndia onto the device; an unofficial app distribution system that allows for the installation of titles that Apple won't approve for the App Store.

 

 

While this isn't a public release and it will take time for a stable reliable client to come out, it's a clear sign of all the boundary breaking that was inevitably going to take place through the iPad's lifespan.
