It’s Official: The iPad Has Been Jailbroken with Blackra1n, Cydia Installed

With a brief blog post, Geohot has let us officially know that he’s managed to jailbreak his iPad. As you can see from the screenshot below, he used Blackra1n to install Cydia on the device.

It will be interesting to see what Cydia developers will come up with for the new device. More importantly, we’ll be able to have multitasking before the release of iPhone OS 4.0 for iPad. We can’t wait.
