Soon after we reported about iPad mini jailbreak, well-known jailbreak apps developer and iOS hacker Chpwn has revealed that iPad 4 jailbreak has also been achieved. Both iPad mini and iPad 4 went on sale last Friday. Hit the jump to learn more about iPad 4 jailbreak…
Chpwn points out that Cydia running on iPad 4 doesn’t look any different than it did on iPad 3. This is what Chpwn tweeted about the Cydia running on a jailbroken iPad 4:
It doesn’t look any different than on the iPad (3rd generation), but here’s Cydia running on the iPad (4th generation)
Please note that the hackers are calling it failbreak instead of jailbreak because its public release is not possible due to the dependency on the iOS developer’s account. Hackers also want to keep this failbreak private in an effort to find more jailbreak exploits and make Cydia and other jailbreak apps ready for latest iOS 6.0.1.
Before this, hackers has also sccessfully jailbreak iPhone 5, and iPad mini. — it’s a really a good sign for the jailbreak community that the failbreak works on the iPhone 5 and iPad 4?s new chipset.
In case you don’t know, iPad 4 comes with more powerful internal hardware as compared to iPad 3, including improved front-facing camera, A6x processor, and new lightening port. Also checkout iPad 4 specs.
We’ll update your about the iPad 4 jailbreak as we learn more aout it, stay tuned!
