GeoHot accepts an iPad 2 hacking challenge; jailbreak should be coming soon
Who is the young bright fellow that was being sued by Sony until just recently and who is probably despised by Apple and AT&T at the same time? Why, it is no other than George “GeoHot” Hotz who hacked the allegedly impenetrable PlayStation 3 console and who released a number of jailbreaks for the iPhone... while he was still in his teens. Well, all of GeoHot's problems with Sony have been settled peacefully so now he can safely go back to doing what he seems to be best at – hacking the hottest gadgets out there.

As it became pretty clear yesterday, the next target in GeoHot's scope is going to be Apple's iPad 2. The battle was on after p0sixninja, a member of the iPhone Dev Team challenged him to a little competition in order to see who will hack Apple's latest tablet first. The goal is to dump the iPad 2′s bootrom successfully – a feat that will most probably lead to the jailbreaking of the iPad 2 and will bring fame to the one who succeeds.

So, all of you who are waiting for an iPad 2 jailbreak might want to cross your fingers. We will be keeping an eye on the situation and will let you know as soon as news breaks out.
