After a day of its release, the Apple iPad has already been jailbroken. MuscleNerd, member of iPhone Dev-Team revealed to us that he has already jailbroken the iPad. Expect an iPad jailbreak very soon.
The iPad can currently run on an SSH server. The jailbreak consists of a variation of the same ‘spirit’ jailbreak which was recently used to de-restrict iPhone 3.1.3. It is evident that the 3.2 firmware still has a number of security holes that have let the iPhone Dev-Team able to jailbreak it using the iPhone 2.1.2 hack. This jailbreak method sounds similar to the earlier technique which uses a browser-based exploit to get root access and let unsigned applications running on the tablet. Right now, we are not sure if this could be made into an automated process for regular readers.
