i0n1c iOS 5.1.1 new iPad 3 jailbreak
There’s some interesting news today for those who like to customize and jailbreak their devices. Apple’s latest operating system update, 5.1.1, has only just become available but it seems that the New iPad (3) running iOS 5.1.1 has already been jailbroken by i0n1c. This is news that we think might surprise many of yo,u or maybe not considering the reputation of this notorious hacker.
Only earlier today we told how a jailbreak was already available for iOS devices with the A4 processor running iOS 5.1.1 but users with A5X devices were advised to steer clear. Prolific developer and hacker i0n1c, real name Stefan Esser, must have been working at the speed of light then. Already he has published a photo of his New iPad running iOS 5.1.1 and Cydia.
Although it seems unlikely that i0n1c will release the jailbreak to the public because of his general disapproval of jailbreaking it seems that his pride on achieving the jailbreak, where others haven’t managed so far, has got the better of him, hence the publishing of the photograph according to JBU.
Those of you who are interested in jailbreaking will have been following the exploits of pod2g and efforts to bring an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 to fruition. We’ve been reporting on this for some time and now wonder if it might be time for the pod2g and i0n1c to collaborate, although that is probably not on the cards!
