Here are the steps to Jailbreak iPad using Greenpois0n for Mac:
Head over to www.greenpois0n.com. Click on the Mac link and save the archived download to your Mac. It’s a small file so won’t take very long to download.
Now extract the archive and run the greepois0n file you see.
Now connect your iPad to the computer and quit iTunes if it is open. Power off the iPad and click on Jailbreak button.
The rest of the steps are self explanatory. You will have to press some buttons in the said sequence. Don’t worry about doing it wrong as the software will allow you to retry if you fail to put iPad in DFU mode the first time.
Once your iPad is successfully sent to DFU mode the Jailbreak process will start.
Click on Complete button when jailbreak is over.
After iPad has rebooted a new icon called Loader will appear on your iPad Springboard. Click on Loader.
Now select Cydia and click Install Cydia button. After Cydia has installed you will have option to delete Loader. Tap on Remove and let iPad reboot.
You now have a jailbroken iPad and Cydia app on your iPad springboard.
