    [4/4/2010] Update 2 by admin: It has now been confirmed that the iPad is jailbreakable. See this blog post for more information: http://www.ipadimo.com/blog/3588/


    [3/25/2010] Update 1 by admin: It is now likely that the iPad is jailbreakable. We have added a dedicated iPad jailbreak forum section where you can discuss all aspects of the iPad jailbreak, including today's news from Geohot about a potential development in the search for a jailbreak.


    I don't want to get banned for just asking a simple question! so i'm just curious if it's possible! It seems like its just an upscaled iphone using 4.0 software! I only jailbreak my ipod touch for themes! If Apple would just include themes into their software there really wouldn't be a need for jailbreaking the iDevices!
    I've also been looking at the MacWorld presentation with Steve Jobs and he said that there will be 3rd party apps for the iPad! i just can't wait to get it! i'm saving up now! lol thanks

    there is no way of telling till we get our greedy hands on this beautiful device, once we connect to our computers we can check the iBoot firmware they put on it. Im guessing it will be brand new in which case we will have to see if the dev team or anyone else is willing to play around with this device to try and uncover a loop hole.

    by 3rd party apps they mean the appstore will be available for the iPad

    and if you look at the keynote presentation which they have posted an official video of the entire thing, you can see the springboard has custom backgrounds and Steve Jobs mentions it quickly that you will be able to change the background. This does not mean we can creat custom icons yet though

    Nothing is unhackable, so yes it will be jailbroken eventually.
