iPad Jailbroken & Cydia Running

MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev-Team has revealed a video showing a successful jailbreak of the iPad. The new hack exploits a bug found on the 3.2 version of the iPad OS, however with the iPhone OS 4.0 being previewed on April 8th plans for a release of this jailbreak might be changed so that Apple can’t patch the bug. In a recent picture it shows Cydia running on the device.

Apple Sells 300,000+ iPads on Launch Day

On the iPad launch day over 300,000 iPads were sold. Also on launch day iPad users have downloaded over a million Apple iPadapps and over 250,000 eBooks from the iBookstore. Steve Jobs himself said that “iPad users, on average, downloaded more than three apps and close to one book within hours of unpacking their new iPad.”

The numbers go against certain Piper-Jaffray’s analytical predictions that called for up to 600,000 to 700,000 iPads to be sold on launch day.
