Hacked iPad Shown Running Chromium OS

While it could just be a screengrabbed imaged displayed in the Photos app, we're inclined to believe it's the real deal as Hexxeh already has a proven track record in Chromium OS builds.


The UK-based hacker tweeted from his compromised iPad, but did say that "I'll dash your hopes later, there are a few catches." In a reply to another tweeter, he said later that "You can't use it as a normal iPad without a restore sadly though."

Only the one grainy picture has been published showing his iPad running the open source Chromium OS, but presumably he'll be letting us in on some of his secrets later. [Hexxeh via Engadget]

How dare you post such vile blasphemy Kat?

"Most certainly I tell you, all sins of the descendants of man will be forgiven, including their blasphemies with which they may blaspheme; but whoever may blaspheme against the Holy Apple never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin"

The Book of Jobs 3:28-29

I fear for your eternal soul Kat, and for the souls of the editors who allowed you to post such filth. Even to speak of it is heresy. I wash my hands of this mess, because I am certain The Holy CEO's wrath shall be swift and brutal.
