    Default Will the iPad Mini see a jailbreak?

    Was contemplating (read: most definitely) on buying an iPad Mini.
    However, was wondering if it will ever be jailbroken.

    Once A5 devices iphones on 6.0 and above are jailbroken, then one will come out for iPad. Don't hold ur breathe on when that will happen tho. Gonna be a while still.

    Yeah it been almost 3 months with iOS 6 and no JB. Really haven't heard of the dev team even getting close. I agree it's going to be awhile. Maybe after iOS 6.1 comes out.

    I feel like a jailbreak will be released after 6.1, I don't think they want to burn an exploit while a new update is in beta.
