Maxwell of Time-More has managed to connect external portable Hard Drive to his iPad using Camera Connection kit (which has to be purchased separately. You can order one on the Apple Store). The iPad that was used in this experiment was Jailbroken with Spirit.


Maxwell has released the video detailing how to connect your external HDD to your iPad and it shows that a Jailbroken iPad is a lot more useful compared to what you get initially.

Here is what you would need to mount external HDD to your iPad:

  • Jailbreak using Spirit
  • External Terminal (Maxwell used his Mac)
  • USB connector with dual USB ports
  • External HDD

The detailed procedure has been posted here and if you don’t own an iPad yet (like me) then you can always enjoy the video:
