The talented iOS developer @chpwn, who is often known for developing jailbreak tweaks and applications successfully jailbroken iPad 4 running on the latest build Apple mobile operating system – iOS 6.01. A day back, the hacker achieved the jailbreak on iPad Mini using the failbreak exploits discovered by Grant Paul (aka @chpwn) and @phoenixdev.
Chpwn (Grant Paul) shared the news to the public by posting the pictures of jailbroken iPad 4 running Cydia on it. The vulnerability and method used by the hacker is not for public consumption since the exploit discovered in iOS 6.0.1 is not legally distributive.
It doesn’t look any different than on the iPad (3rd generation), but here’s Cydia running on the iPad (4th generation): twitter.com/chpwn/status/2…

The hacker achieved the feat by jailbreaking iPad 3 and iPhone 5 too but since then fighting to discover a way to make its distribution legal. We are not sure when he will release it. But, lots of work is remaining before the exploit is packaged for public usage – From packaging to testing.
Apparently the A5/A5X/A6/A6X processors on iOS 6.0 have been providing a number of difficulties for the hackers to complete the jailbreak. What I’m wondering now is, if iOS 6.0 (on A5+) that’s giving the developers trouble, will they encounter similar difficulties with the iPad Mini? The device’s A5 dual-core processor on iOS 6.01 would be difficult to achieve. Isn’t? Nevertheless, iOS jailbreak developers have made a promising start and it could take few months for the untethered jailbreak to arrive. There is no ETA being shared about iPad 4 jailbreak developments.
Has anyone out there with an iPad Mini been dying to jailbreak their device? You must follow Follow @@JAlLBREAKSto get updated as soon as the iPad 4 on 6.01 iOS jailbreak is released.
