It is possible that JailbreakMe 3.0, which is supposedly going to bring the long awaited iPad 2 jailbreak, is finally ready and may ultimately be released today. JailbreakMe 3.0 has previously been teased by Comex.
If you have been in the jailbreaking scene back in the day when iOS 4.0 was all the rage, you’ll know why JailbreakMe was equally popular. This iOS 4.0 jailbreak solution was developed by Comex, and made it very easy for you to jailbreak your iOS 4.0 running iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. However, Apple patched the PDF based exploit, upon which JailbreakMe 2.0 used to function, when it released iOS 4.0.2.
Up till now, we know that the Chronic Dev Team is working on their own iPad 2 jailbreak program which won’t be called Greenpois0n. An entirely new program will be created for that matter. Also, p0sixninja had challenged Geohot to dump the A5 bootrom faster than he can, while p0sixninja recently gave an ETA of 2-3 weeks, there have been no updates on Geohot iPad 2 jailbreak.
The reason why the iPad 2 can’t be jailbroken is because the Limera1n exploit found in A4 based devices, does not exist in the iPad 2 which has an A5 processor that is not vulnerable to the Limera1n exploit. Basically, change of hardware has made it difficult to jailbreak iPad 2, and will also make jailbreaking the next generation iPhone as well.
The image that you see embedded in the post above appeared earlier today and was later removed. Clearly, it points at a possible iPad 2 jailbreak release. Previously, when the iPad 2 was announced in March, only Comex had managed to preview his iPad 2 jailbreak, the exploit of which was later patched by Apple, hence Comex’s untethered iPad 2 jailbreak was delayed indefinitely.
Since then, there has been no solid development when it comes to the iPad 2 jailbreak, other the obvious fake iPad 2 jailbreaks that have been released to cause harm to all those who are waiting for an iPad 2 jailbreak, and we know that a lot of people fall in that category.
Lets see what Comex has in store for us today. Stay tuned to ChipHazard for all iPad 2 jailbreak related news and updates.
