1.2 Million Devices Jailbroken On the Weekend - TheTechN
On Friday we saw the release of Absinthe’s Jailbreak for Apple iPhones, iPads, iPod Touches and TVs running iOS 5.1.1 around the world. The Jailbreak was always going to be big though – I mean, the first untethered iOS 5.1.1 Jailbreak!
However, I don’t think any of us anticipated the numbers we’d be seeing. Here’s what the Chronic Dev-Team announced yesterday in a tweet:
“Some stats since release of #Absinthe – 211,401 jailbroken iPad3′s and 973,086 devices newly jailbroken! #JBFTW ! ;D”
1.2 million downloads! That just goes to show that jailbreaking is becoming more and more mainstream.
Personally I love having Jailbroken Apple products. Having quite a few, I’ve realized that Apple is too limited with what they give you. When you’re jailbroken you can get themes, colors, overclock — the possibilities are endless! On top of that it’s is not illegal, so you don’t need to worry about getting into trouble. Sure, it voids your warranty, but with a quick restore back to factory settings, who’s going to know?
So, have you jailbroken your iDevices yet? I sure have. Let me know in the comment box below, or send me a quick tweet at @DomTechN, I’ll be interested to hear from you!
