http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/19383772351/ipad-3-fever Despite the awkward name Apple announced last week for the new iPad (well continue to call it iPad3!), by all signs its going to be another big hit. We suspect many of you are lined up at this very minute, and so its a good time to give you some info for maximizing your chance to eventually jailbreak the iPad3. There are a few bits of good news already. We can confirm that the method used to jailbreak the iPad2 4 months ago (before corona) still works even in 5.1. That means well at least be able to get our foot in the door to get the required kernel dumps on the iPad3. Thats an important step, but by no means is it the end of the story. Those of you following @i0n1c may have noticed hes already tweeted pictures of his iPad2 jailbroken at 5.1. As far as we know, hes using a method completely unrelated to the one mentioned above. That would be great news! Weve also seen bits and pieces of an entirely different jailbreak method being investigated by someone close to the Cydia repo scene. Thats three different angles, and were not even including the continuous work @pod2g makes towards a new jailbreak! As always, keep in mind this is very preliminary progress, and its impossible to predict how or when these things turn out. The only thing you need to remember is the golden rule: Dont update your new iPad3 past whatever iOS it comes shipped with!
