• iOS Hacker Winocm Demonstrates Triple Boot of iOS 5.1, 6.1.3, 7.0.6 on iPad 2

    Well-known iOS hacker Winocm, known for his efforts in the p0sixspwn jailbreak, has once again demonstrated his talents in his latest YouTube video. Just recently, Winocm showed us a successful untethered boot on an iPhone 4 running iOS 7.1, but his latest YouTube video demonstrates a successful triple boot of iOS 5.1, iOS 6.1.3, and iOS 7.0.6 on an iPad 2.

    You can view the hacker's demonstration video below:

    Winocm's little trick here is very interesting. He moves through iOS 5.1, 6.1.3, and 7.0.6 in the video one after another almost seamlessly without any restoring necessary. It does appear, however, that the device needed to be tethered to a computer for this to work, so it's certainly not like dual-booting operating systems on a personal computer where you can simply select an operating system and boot up to it.

    This is a really interesting proof of concept and it's always really cool to see what the hacker is capable of.

    Winocm is expected to begin working for Apple later this year, as he announced in February.

      Hopefully this genius child will bring some epic work to the table of dual booting an iPhone with something like say windows or android platforms.

      Would be ace to just out android on it, not for something to use just to show he can do it

      Hopefully he doesn't kill the JB scene when he does start working for Apple. Winocm has talked about many times how Apple's kernel doesn't seem to change too much! Hopefully he doesn't do what Comex did & patch the ability to do jailbreaks via Userland approach after bootrom exploits are gone.

      Agreed tho he has certainly got some talents!

      What I find most impressive is the lack of SHSH blobs. Hopefully he'll assist us jail breakers in this lack of downgrade possibilities before he leaves for Apple.

      Seeing Android running on it would be nice. I know there is the iDroid project, but it hasn't made any progress in 2 years (so I'm assuming it's probably been abandoned) and it only supported the iPhone 2g, 3g and 1st gen iPod Touch and was able to only run Android 2.3. This proof of concept makes this idea completely possible, but doing this will take some hard work and dedication
