Within a day of the launch, iPad mini has already been jailbroken. MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev-Team reports that @phoenixdev @chpwn has successfully jailbreak iPad mini. Hit the jump to learn more about iPad mini jailbreak development…
MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev-Team has just tweeted that the “failbreak” (more about it below) from Chpwn and Phoenix dev is successfully working on iPad mini. This is what MuscleNerd tweeted:
the “failbreak” from @phoenixdev @chpwn in action on an iPad-mini http://t.co/ucWGGGP0 (why failbreak? see @planetbeing’s timeline)
It’s unclear if this iPad mini jailbreak is done on iOS 6 or iOS 6.0.1 firmware. Before this Chpwn has tweeted that iPhone 5 jailbreak has been achieved and Planetbeing explained it as a failbreak.
Why failbreak and not jailbreak? Because it’s identical to a tethered jailbreak but requires iOS developers account which renders it illigal for general public. A failbreak is meant for jailbreak apps developers only so that they may prepare their apps for iOS 6 or iOS 6.0.1 compatibility.
This is what Planetbeing had tweeted about failbreak jailbreak for iPhone 5 which now also works on iPad mini:
Upgraded the #failbreak with a kernel exploit so tweaks actually work on iPhone 5. 😀 Almost a full tethered JB, though need dev account.
We’ll update you on iPad mini jailbreak as we learn more about it, stay tuned!
Sitting tight so we can have the untethered 4s and iPad 3 before xmas 2059
I am really tired of these topics ….Why even mention it …it wont happen for another 6 months tell us when its made public…
iphoneheat I have been using you guys for at least 4 years, please dont publish this kind lies, this is just photoshop
We care about sharing the right information.. This one from famous hackers and it’s legit. They won’t release it until they find a way to make this jailbreak possible without using a iOS developers account.
