iPad Jailbreak

For those who don’t know yet, iPad has already been Jailbroken with the new Spirit jailbreak tool. Jailbreaking will allow you to use 3rd party apps that are not permitted in App Store to be downloaded and used using the alternate Cydia App Store. Spirit jailbreak is the first and only jailbreak tool for iPad and it’s untethered jailbreak which means you do not have to Jailbreak ever after that.
