Just after one day of its release, iPad Mini has been successfully jailbroken. iPad Mini jailbreak involves the same method which was used in the case of iPhone 5. If you remember, iPhone 5 was also jailbroken by @Chpwn on the very first day of its release. This time another member of iPhone Dev Team gets the success.
iPad Mini Jailbreak Status:
MuscleNerd, who is a very famous member of iPhone dev Team and who maintains the popular jailbreaking tool ‘Redsn0w’, posted a screenshot of iPad mini showing the successful root access into iPad mini. The tweets clearly indicates that he employed the method of @Chpwn to jailbreak iPad Mini. Here is the exact screenshot:

MuscleNerd called this jailbreak “failbreak” due to two reasons. First of all it is tethered jailbreak and above all it requires developer account with Apple. The involvement of developer account means that you can not release it for general users. To release for a common user, they’ll have to find new exploits or work on the existing ones so that the final jailbreaking product doesn’t require Dev Account or any other legally protected material.
In fact no one knows when a public iPad mini jailbreak will be released, but iPhone deve team and other members of jailbreak community are working hard to find a legal way to jailbreak the device.
