Things are going fast in the jailbreak world these days. One day after MuscleNerd announced the Dev Team had jailbroken iPhone OS 4, it’s GeoHot turns to impress us with a jailbreak for the iPad.

Ealier today, GeoHot posted a tweet with a picture showing verbose mode running on his iPad. For info, verbose mode basically shows everything that your iPad is doing on bootup. It’s a clear sign that the iPad has been jailbroken.

As if it wasn’t clear enough, GeoHot posted a more straightforward picture on his blog minutes ago showing a jailbroken iPad with the BlackRa1n and Cydia icons.

When the picture was first posted on GeoHot’s blog, it had a caption under it saying that “The new app will not be called blackra1n”. This caption has since then been removed.

The name doesn’t matter. Of course what really matters here is that GeoHot is once again the first to find a new jailbreak, this time for the iPad.

There is no estimated release date but if I had a guess, I’d say that this new iPad jailbreak should hit the streets pretty soon. It seems like multitasking might come to the iPad earlier than Steve Jobs would want to after all…

    Umm actually he hasn’t “released” the JB yet. You might want to rephrase that.

    • You are correct, Sir. I took care of it and slightly edited the post. Thank you for pointing it out to me!

  • Jerry

    i just hope he releases the 3.1.3 jailbreak i have donated to him at every jailbreak and i sure will donate alot more $ if i can get this phone out of stock. geohot is the man so even if apple closes the hole im sure he;ll find another.

  • Lance

    Geohot is the man! I am sure jailbreaks for all devices will follow soon!!

  • Nate

    If everyone can just wait for 4.0 to come out for them to release the jailbreak we’ll probably have a jailbreak on launch day

    I kept on reading everywhere about jailbreak. I know that currently there is no JB for 3gs running 3.1.3. I ran forecast and it says that I cannot JB or unlock. Here’s my question: I currently have an ex-jb phone. My phone is a 3gs, running on firmware 3.1.3, modem firmware is 05.12-01. My model is MB717LL. Is there a way to jailbreak this phone? I do not want to unlock it because I am on ATT network. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Dear Mr. Geohot,

    can you please, please, please make it ra1n on my iPhone 3GS 3.1.3, 5.12.01, MC model as well? Please, Mr. Geohot, please please, please with cream and sugar on top! I’m begging you please…

    Kindest regards,
    The Executioner

    This image is photoshoped. No question there!

  • I love the Dev-Team, they are my heroes. Screw apple flash is coming to ipad via Cydia. hehe

  • Guardian71171

    This is not a Photoshop pic, he has digitally enhanced the two icons so you can see it more clearly that he has done the jailbreak, he has shown proof in video already that he has done it, he is just now showing the pic of him placing the icons on the springboard.

    @ Saleh the terrorist….look here…when the jailbreak comes out… can gladly get down on your knees and give Mr. Geohotz a great big blow alright!…Until then, just shut the hell up and be glad we don’t lock your ass up like the rest of your family.

  • Gino

    So if he found a way to jailbrake the ipad then whatever app he created or using can Also unlock ghe iPhone 3gs 3.1.3 update im i correct people ?????

  • Soooo. where is it? GeoHot demos in in a shady picture….. where is the release?

  • nohack

    they cannot hack the mc model 3.1.3 or they would have released it by now, all this spiel about they are holding it back so apple does not feck it over n stuff is all bullsh*t , EASY SOLUTION – Stop donating to these fakes and take your iphone and a hammer and smash the thing up 🙂

    I was actually able to downgrade my iphone 3gs (old one MB) from 3.1.3 to 3.1.2 after i accidently upgraded it. Just restored using the 3.1.2 firmware on itunes and then used iRecover to get it out of the DFU mode. Then was able to use blackra1n and jailbreak it. Was so happy it worked, i thought i was stuck with a normal iphone and was bummed because i wasn’t able to tether 3g to my ipad.
