Three different iPad (3rd generation) jailbreaks surface on launch day

By , Mar 16, 2012

As if one jailbreak wasn’t enough, now there has been confirmation that not one, not two, but three different 3rd generation iPad jailbreaks have been confirmed by hackers MuscleNerd, i0nic, and chpwn respectively.

It’s only a matter of time before one or more of these jailbreaks make their way to a toolset that the average person can utilize.

Chpwn is the latest hacker to join the new 3rd generation iPad jailbreak party, as he posted photos on Twitter confirming his success…

It looks like the new iPad won’t be in jail for too much longer. We can’t wait to see how the jailbreak developers take advantage of the iPad’s new Retina display and various other features.

If there was only one guy holding the ace card, that would be one thing. But when three different people have three different jailbreaks, I’d say that bodes well for one of them being released in the very near future.

What do you think?

    First!

    That’s insane! 3 jailbreaks. In one day. All untethered. Wow.

    • http://twitter.com/Max_Kas Max Kaslick

      One of my justified reasons to myself for not getting the new ipad and staying with the iPad 2 was that the jailbreak was going to be hard and take awhile (respectively) again…

      DAMMIT! ;P

    If it was that easy it makes me wonder if Apple just isn’t putting as much effort into combating jailbreaking anymore..

    Is there a jailbreak for iPhone 4s on 5.1? I’m on 5.0.1 but having battery trouble and apple said 5.1 should fix it but I don’t want to upgrade unless there is a jailbreak for it.

      I always wonder when ppl said battery trouble. What is exactly happen, can you tell me?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/DZE5COJHUWBV7Z5DSELH36FWEU Jamie

        The battery drains faster.

        How many hours can it last when there is a battery issue?

        For my iPhone 4s it varies day to day

    Seriously amazing! But let’s not forget the iPad 2 was jailbroken around release day too and it took months before we saw a public release of an entirely new jailbreak.

  • http://twitter.com/alvin_ma Alvin Ma

    How do you know they’re THREE DIFFERENT jailbreaks? might be using the same method.

    • http://twitter.com/sivkai Siv

      My thoughts exactly.

      Maybe all three of them found an obvious exploit? Seems far more likely than identifying three different exploits in a matter of hours…

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1507068701 Jorit Studer

        Not realy i0n1c has an own exploit which u don’t need a apple developer account for, but chpwn and musclenerd are both just using an exploit which they found in ios 5.0.1 but couldn’t publish to the mass because of need of an developer account!

    Maybe apple just doesnt care about jailbreaking anymore

    • http://www.facebook.com/reanimationxp Drew Alden

      Yeah right.. one word, APTickets. Even with jailbreaks, we still have a lot of problems.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000041129068 John Angelo Moraitis

    hmm, maybe jail-breaking the iPads was a little too “easy”.

    Do you think they may have “overlooked” a exploit or 2 when they were bug testing

    Something just dos’t seem right here.

    Just sayin

    Yeah it could be 3 months before they get one we can use. Do you rember the 5 jailbreaks for ios5??? Never happend. Good luck but I’m staying on 5.0.1 on my 4s till I know it’s all good!!!

    The new iPad uses the same chip as the iPad 2. It’s no surprise that the hackers were able to get it jailbroken so fast…not sure why everyone is shocked

    • Anonymous

      iPad 2 jailbroken by using userland exploit. Not bootrom exploit. After Apple release 5.1, its already patched 5.0.1 userland exploit. Still, i’m not to sure if this is bootrom exploit or userland exploit. We will wait and find out.

  • http://twitter.com/klau1001 KLau

    Will this mean that the jailbreak for ios5.1, or for A5X is much more simple?

    Anyway, great job!

    if all three work for apple….i bet iOS will be almost impenetrable by hackers, or at least loopholes corrected very fast….

    maybe apple really has given up on trying to prevent jailbreaking

  • http://www.facebook.com/gtthomas4 Grant Thomas

    If apple was really smart and sneaky, they would let the new iPad be jailbroken easily so all the people with jailbroken iPad 2s would go out and by the new iPad. Then a few weeks later, release a new firmware that could not be jailbroken. It’s the perfect plan.

    • Anonymous

      That plan is perfect except for one thing…
      Jailbreakers tend not to upgrade unless there is a jailbreak out for it (and if you’re me, it has to be untethered). So most people would stay on the firmware that can already be jailbroken.

  • Anonymous

    Do you really think they are going to do anything different because its the new iPad. Several apps still don’t run natively on the iPad. What makes you think it will change?

    thats amazing now all i need is a 5.1 untether for my 4 and 4s

  • http://twitter.com/Rongmario Ethan Mahmood

    i0n1c PhonixDev ChPwn and MuscleNerd, both has 4 different exploits. Non-Bootrom. However. If we only release one jailbreak of each for 5.1 and we can atleast have 3 more different ones that is not patched and can be used in later-firmwares.

  • Anonymous

    So am I the only one that is still wondering where the unteathered 5.1 for A4 devices is? although this is interestingly fast id still like to update to 5.1
