Jailbreaker iH8sn0w has released images of an iPad running the MobileTerminal jailbreak application, exposing the command line to users, suggesting that the iOS 4.2 firmware (still in beta) will be jailbroken upon its release this November.

This news is good for anyone who supports the jailbreak community and wants to have a jailbroken iPad running iOS 4.2 on day one.

Fifteen-year-old hacker iH8sn0w is a proven resource in the jailbreaking world, responsible for Sn0wbreeze, iReb, iDetector, and f0recast. iPhoneWorld has a nice interview with iH8sn0w if you'd like to learn more about him and his experiences in the iPhone hacking community.
