iPad Jailbroken Already Using Old Security Flaw

That’s right guys, the Apple iPad has already been jailbroken! Don’t know what jailbreaking is? Well, to put it simply, it allows apps not authorized by Apple to run on the iPod Touch, iPhone, or, in this case, the iPad. This is usually done to run homebrew applications or games, and so forth.
A security flaw that existed in the iPhone 3.1.3 operating system (OS) was used that allowed for root access to be obtained in order to run these unauthorized apps. Expect updates that will close this hole in the near future!
