Well … he’s done it again. Geohot – the original iPhone unlocker and well-known iPhone hacker – has posted a picture at his blog of a jailbroken iPad.
He hasn’t given any details or a release date yet, but he is generally very fast with these things – so I imaging we may see an iPad jailbreak app release from him very soon.

Ha! Day 2 of the iPad and it’s been rooted – as the video posted by MuscleNerd (from the iPhone Dev Team) clearly shows. I love the bit at the end where he shuts the Maps app down. This comment on the video is very good to see:
Very early work on porting "Spirit" jailbreak by @comex to iPad
As was his tweet on this a few minutes ago:
Here’s to being able to say this phrase soon:
The iPad: Magical, Revolutionary, and Jailbroken.
Geohot – the boy wonder of the iPhone jailbreak an unlock community and creator of the popular blackra1n jailbreak method – has posted a video demo of a new untethered jailbreak (i.e one with no need to re-jaibreak after each reboot) that will work on all latest model iPhone and iPod Touches.
Here’s the very exciting part in relation to the iPad though:
The jailbreak is all software based, and is as simple to use as blackra1n. It is completely untethered, works on all current tethered models(ipt2, 3gs, ipt3), and will probably work on iPad too.
Geohot thinks this latest jailbreak will probably work for the iPad too. Obviously that is no guarantee, but for as long as I can remember following Geohot’s efforts, he doesn’t make a lot of empty boasts. He seems be able to walk the walk far more often than not.
No word on a possible release date for this new jailbreak yet, but how sweet would that be to see the iPad jailbroken on Day 1?
