A couple of hours earlier, a figure unknown in the jailbreaking community released an alleged A5 iPad 2 jailbreak. Many anxious iPad 2 owners who wished to jailbreak iPad 2 rushed to download this unverified EXE file. It’s our duty here at ChipHazard to provide you with authentic news, and in line with that commitment, we’ll request all budding iPad 2 jailbreakers to stay away from this package as this is fake and may harm your computer or its file system for good. The package comes from some chap named d0nfyxn.
It turns out, this fake iPad 2 jailbreak was designed to fail in the process. If one digs deeper, here is what this jailbreak actually is:
private void timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
this.timer1.Enabled = false;
for (int i = 0; i < 0x15f90; i++)
this.progressBar1.Value = i;
this.label10.Text = “Error ‘connection time out’ “;
if (MessageBox.Show(“Failed to connect the device, please try again”, “Error, failed to connect the device”, MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Hand) == DialogResult.OK)
this.checkBox1.Enabled = true;
this.checkBox1.Checked = false;
this.progressBar1.Value = 0;
Its evident from the code above that under any circumstance, this fake iPad 2 jailbreak wouldn’t have worked at all, and may have harmed your computer as this is an unverified EXE file and may contain dangerously malicious payload.
For those who want to jailbreak iPad 2, we’d suggest that you be patient at the moment and don’t be led astray by such fakes. It will only cause more problems for you.
Always remember to trust packages from known developers such as the iPhone Dev Team, Chronic Dev Team, Comex and iH8sn0w.
