Security researcher jailbreaks iOS 5.1.1 on new iPad 3
Security researcher claims he's managed to jailbreak Apple's iOS 5.1.1 update on the new iPad 3 and releases a picture to prove it - but is it real?
Following the news that security researcher Pod2g managed to jailbreak Apple’s iOS 5 software update, iOS 5.1 on the new iPad (video below), another security expert, Stefan Essar, has claimed that he's jailbroken iOS 5.1.1 on the third-generation slate.
"Ohhh no while I was sleeping my girlfriend accidentally upgraded my iPad 3 to iOS 5.1.1," he Tweeted, along with this photo of his iPad running Cydia - the alternative to Apple's App store on iOS jailbreak.
However, Essar claims he’s no plans to release it to the public just yet, the iOS blog iPhonehacks reports.
Jailbreaking - the process of removing the restrictions on iOS set by Apple - allows users to download material such as apps and themes that aren’t yet ready on the App Store.
