On the heels of his valuation early morning, Musclenerd, the lead hacker of iPhone Dev Team has jailbroken his iPad 3 running the latest iOS 5.1 (9B176). The hacker posted the pictures of his jailbroken iPad 3,3 on twitter. The first picture shows a terminal window with root access while the second image shows Cydia on “The New iPad”.
Since the vulnerability is still half-cooked, the hacker might need sometime before it can be converted into full-blown jailbreak exploit. There’s no official word on when the untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak will be available, but signs suggests that it could be packaged and pushed to public within a week or so. Continue to be patient, supportive, and be extremely excited that it is on the way! Perhaps, the best way to know about it is to follow Jailbreaks on Twitter.
