Since the iPad 3 was released a couple of days ago, on March 16th 2012, many people have been asking “Can You Jailbreak iPad 3?” It’s understandable that many people are skeptical that a jailbreak would be out this soon. After all, when the iPhone 4S came out, it took nearly 2 months for an untethered jailbreak to surface. Luckily, however, since the iPad 3 runs the same A5 processor as the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2, the same jailbreak that worked for those devices will work for the iPad 3 with only a few tweaks.
Introducing the iPad 3 Jailbreak!
The main jailbreak hackers, who’ve been behind nearly every jailbreak to date, have already updated the software and released it. So, yes, without a doubt, you CAN jailbreak iPad 3 on iOS 5.1 right now! Definitely be careful though. Every time a new jailbreak solution comes out, it turns out that many hackers think they will scam unsuspecting “n00bs” who may not be as technically savvy as they are. It’s pretty common to find downloads with the name of the appropriate jailbreak software all over the web, which aren’t legitimate. The download will have the exact same name as the legit application. Sometimes it will even come from a website with a very similar name, that looks exactly the same as the legitimate sites. However, once you download the jailbreak software to jailbreak iPad 3, you’ll find that either the software is just an out and out fake (it’ll be a previous iteration of the software that won’t work for the newest iOS), or even worse, you’ll find that it’s full of viruses, spyware, malware, and trojans that will try and hijack not only your iPad or iDevice, but also your PC or Mac – what they try to do is install keyloggers so that they can steal your personal information. Identity theft is a growing problem!
So what can you do to make sure that you get the jailbreak software from a trusted source and ensure that you won’t have any difficulties doing an iPad 3 jailbreak? Well, I hate to say it, but your best bet is to utilize an inexpensive paid jailbreak site. Of course, you don’t HAVE to pay for jailbreak software. It’s open source after all, if you can find the right version. But, when you utilize a paid jailbreak site, you get a few major advantages. 1st off, you know that the software is legit. You can be confident that there are no trojans or other bad stuff lurking in your download. 2nd, they’ll give you the correct software for your OS, iOS, baseband, and iDevice model. No guessing, no hoping. You’ll just know for a fact that you have the right version of the jailbreak software. Finally, the biggest benefit is the step by step tutorials that will take you by the hand and guide you through the jailbreak process. The screenshots and tutorials are super easy to follow. And what’s more, they’ll also offer technical support. So if for some reason, something seems unclear or you run into a weird error message, you’ll have an expert to ask who can guide you through the process.
