This iPad Can Boot Between iOS 5, iOS 6, And iOS 7 At Will [Video]

Hate iOS 7’s visual aesthetic, but have apps that require iOS 7 to function? You should do what famed jailbreaker winocm did — hack his iPad 2 so it triple boots between iOS 5.1, iOS 6.1.3 and iOS 7.0.6!

Spoiler: According to some people on Twitter, the issue persists in iOS 4.3.1 that was just released on Friday.

During the two and a half minutes that I was in there, I noticed that the colors were “glitching-out.” It’s happened three times now.

You can see the video glitches in my video below.
