Geohot's iPad Jailbreak to be Named Limera1n

Apple iPhone hacker George Hotz (Geohot) set up a new website for his forthcoming jailbreak software dubbed limera1n. Previous releases such as blackra1n have made it possible for jailbreakers all over the world to install unauthorized apps and unlock the iPhone for use on alternate wireless carriers.

Geohot posted evidence that he was making significant progress with iPhone OS 3.2, the current operating system running on the first version iPad. Apple is expected to release version 4 of its mobile OS this summer, along with next generation iPhone hardware.

Just a few short days ago, iPhone Dev-Team member MuscleNerd demonstrated an initial porting of the Spirit jailbreak by @comex to the iPad. Now George Hotz (aka Geohot) is working on his blackra1n software to jailbreak the iPad.

Proving that he's making progress, Geohot posted keys for the iPad 3.2 firmware and bootrom on his blog with a one-line comment reading, "This is more exciting than a lot of you realize." Only a day later he revealed that "verbose iPads look cool" and tweeted the picture below.
