iPhone Dev team has got great news regarding the new iPad 3 jailbreaking on their blog which claims that the technique that had worked to jailbreak the iPad 2 around four months back can still be used for the 5.1.
i0n1c has posted images of his iPad2 jailbroken at 5.1 and now he’s out with a different method. Besides that other jailbreaking methods have also come to light. In fact we can see that the jailbreakers are atleast working on three different ways to jailbreak new iPad 3 already.
The information shared by the iPhone Dev-Team has been quoted as it is below:
We can confirm that the method used to jailbreak the iPad2 4 months ago still works even in 5.1. That means we’ll at least be able to get our foot in the door to get the required kernel dumps on the new iPad. That’s an important step, but by no means is it the end of the story.
Those of you following @i0n1c may have noticed he’s already tweeted pictures of his iPad2 jailbroken at 5.1. As far as we know, he’s using a method completely unrelated to the one mentioned above. That would be great news!
We’ve also seen bits and pieces of an entirely different jailbreak method being investigated by someone close to the Cydia repo scene.
However, it’s too early to expect a stable jailbreak soon enough. For now all you need to keep in mind is not to update to a future iOS version with the new iPad if you are planning to jailbreak your device.
