Cydia App On iPad

After some promising news from MuscleNerd regarding successful porting of Comex userland jailbreak spirit to Apple iPad, things seem to slowly coming into shape for a proper Apple iPad Jailbreak as iPad hacker 'cdevwill' today posted first-ever pictures of Cydia running successfully on a Apple iPad.

As expected and blogged about few days ago userland jailbreak "Spirit" is now successfully ported to Apple iPad courtesy of iPhone Dev Team member MuscleNerd, within a day of sale the iPad OS 3.2 is been exploited allowing jail-breakers to get access to the root of the system, the hack which is a variation of "Spirit jailbreak" recently used to successfully exploit iPhone OS 3.1.3 is expected to use the same browser-based exploit allowing users to jailbreak their iDevices without any complicated process right from their mobile Safari web-browser.

For those of you who don’t know, Cydia is an app used to download other apps for a jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch. It’s similar in many ways to the App Store app that comes installed on all “iDevices” when shipped from Apple. The difference being that the apps Cydia supplies are not sold via Apple. THey also often allow you to do things on your iDevice that Apple frowns upon. Like multitasking, and other system hacks. In order to use Cydia your device needs to be jailbroken though.

Not much details are available as of now, but 'cdevwill' twitted this first picture of Cydia on iPad thanking saurik (creator of Cydia) and DHowett for this promising clearer pictures and video soon.


  1. Not a real picture of an ipad fake

  2. Old mockup as far as i know. The new screenshots should appear soon.

  3. Hi All,
    I have jailbreaked my Ipad2 but Cydia Icon is not existing onto the screen. Please show it how to find or how to install Cydia into my jailbreaked Ipad2.
