iPad jailbroken in less than a day

Video and pics posted online.

Apple's iPad is selling well, but hackers have been busy and the iPad has already been jailbroken, according to postings online.

Yesterday, Twitter user MuscleNerd posted a video and picture of what appears to be a jailbroken iPad, credited to hacker Comex. Comex is a member of the iPhone Dev team, who have also said that a jailbreak is possible but have yet to release it.

Both attacks appear to depend on the use of a variant of the Spirit application that is used to crack iPhones.

Apple is playing a continuing game of cat-and-mouse with those who seek to use their own software on the devices. In the past, updates have rendered devices useless and it bans some users from its App Store.
