If You’ve Got The Skills, You Can Now Dual Boot iOS 7, iOS 6 And iOS 5

When we originally posted about winocm’s magic iPad 2 that could boot between iOS 5, iOS 6 and iOS 7 at will, we said that “the elite skills necessary to hack your iPad to dual boot operating systems is beyond the ability of most of us mortals, and it’s unlikely winocm will ever make this process friendly for the everyman.”

Then, just yesterday, we took it all back: winocm was going to release the hack that allowed him to dual boot operating systems on his iPad. Schizo-iPads would soon be available to everyone! We were wrong!

Today, though, winocm has released his hack, and guess what? It’s a bunch of github code that you need to have “elite skills… beyond the ability of most of us mortals” to install… definitely not a “process friendly for the everyman.”

In fact, winocm’s own warning reads: “A miscellany of utilities designed to help you bootstrap another operating system on an iOS device. They’re probably crap. You deal with them. No support/warranty implied/given.”

So unless you know what you’re doing, don’t try them. But if you do know what you’re doing, post a tutorial in the comments, huh?
