iPad 4 Jailbroken

On November 5, 2012

Previously, we have covered an article stating that the iPad Mini already had a working failbreak (needing a developer account to jailbreak). However, it seems that the same goes with the iPad 4 as well. The latest iPad had Cydia installed and the screenshot was taken by Grant Paul aka chpwn. It doesn’t look much different than the way things work with the iPad 3 but that is probably because the difference is on the hardware instead.

Based on the screenshot chpwn gave, it seems that the iPad 4 that he had failbreak is powered with the recently released iOS 6.0.1 operating system that was launched last week. However, the method of failbreaking the iPad was not released as not many people would have access to a developer account. Thus, as far as the untethered jailbreak is concerned, it will still take some time before that happens.

The iPad 4 is currently powered with the Apple A6X chip which is another variant of the Apple A6 chip present on the iPhone 5. It is much faster as compared with the iPad 3 and has a tremendously high score at its Geekbench result. In fact, as compared with any other devices in the market, nothing beats the performance of the Apple iPad 4.
