Geohot shows picture of Jailbroken iPad

Actual software still not public yet

George Hotz has what appears to be a static image of a jailbroken iPad up on his Blog. The image shows the now familiar Cydia icon right next to the blackra1n one. This could be the signal that we will see a jailbreak for the iPad very soon.


The last time Goehotz released an image like this the jailbreak was out within a week or so of its posting. Of course the question needs to be asked; are the current crop of apps in Cydia and Rock going to be any good on the iPad? After all in our recent review of the iPad we found that Apps which were developed for the iPhone (and not ported or upgraded for the iPad) did not run that well. This could mean that while we will see things like local file access the apps and themes we have come to enjoy will not be effective. Still, I would rather have a jailborken iPad than one that is not.


Bring on the Ra1n Geo.
