    I thought not all iPod Touch models could have an untethered jailbroken yet. Maybe I'm wrong and that's been bypassed now but its rather funny that their older models have resisted attacks but the iPad fell in 24hours. Well, the bigger they are...

    More like "the iPad is just a bigger iPhone, so we'll use already existing exploits, which will work as they're the same, just with a bigger screen" [​IMG]

    You are correct, but Geohot has come through with an untethered jailbreak for all devices. It hasn't been released yet though

    Seen the price tag?
    Seen the size?
    Seen the shit look?
    Seen how embarrassing it would be holding that square in public?

    I'd hardly call the Ipad "shit". its in the same position as the psp really, not really worth it if you are going to just play retail games on it but if you flash it and use emulators and stuff it turns out to be a really good machine.

    Iphone/Ipod touch's homebrew community is huge, chances are homebrew on the ipad is going to be great. its more powerful than the 3gs which is doing ps1 and n64 emulation extremely well. zodd already has his snes emulator running on the ipad.

    Oh right. I realise you prefer holding the Dsi XL.
    So now I can ask you:

    Seen the price tag?
    Seen the size?
    Seen the shit look?
    Seen how embarrassing it would be holding that MASSIVE THING in public?

    If you like THAT [​IMG] , you shouldn't have any problems with this.

    I only see the price tag as a problem. The other problems? How would it be embarrassing holding it in public when you know it's just showing off how you can spend your money? And I wouldn't say it's in the same position as the PSP...seeing as the PSP does have some great games and doesn't start at $499.

    DSi XL is way cheaper, way smaller and way sleeker looking than this

    I like that one app in the AppStore that costs more than the highest priced Sku possible. Awesome.

    It has a few but yeah that store is loaded with crap mostly imo, getting cydia makes it a bit decent but again thats hacking

    @Dark Blade:Have you seen one in real life, if you have then I dont know whats wrong with you and if you have'nt go hold it aand then go hold your normal ds and your gonna go "Ugh I cant belive I use this thing" [​IMG]

    People need to shut the fuck up and get back on topic.

    To be honest, I expected this to be jailbroken really quickly with the amount of people working on it, no surprises there.

    Good apps are like homemade pies.

    You can't buy 'em you MAKE 'em.
