Earlier today, Apple’s new Retina display-equipped iPad went on sale around the world. Perhaps even more exciting was the fact that the Dev Team was able to jailbreak the new tablet within a matter of hours.

Now it looks like there has been another development. Well-known iDevice hacker i0n1c has just announced that he has jailbroken his third-generation iPad. Oh yeah, and it’s untethered…

I0n1c, known for his work on the iOS 4 untether, has been talking about jailbreaking the new iPad for several days now. And it appears that he has delivered on his promise, and then some.

It’s worth noting that i0n1c hasn’t participated in jailbreak-creation for quite some time now. And nobody’s really sure whether or not he’s going to share his work on the new tablet with other hackers.

But the good news is that it’s possible. As always, we’ll let you know the second we find out more details. Stay tuned.

P.S. Don’t have a new iPad to jailbreak? That’s ok, we just happen to be giving one away for free.
