Our readers will be pleased to know that Comex’s PDF based JailbreakMe 3.0 iPad 2 jailbreak has been leaked in beta. You can now jailbreak your iPad 2 using the userland PDF based exploit that has made iPad 2 jailbreak possible after months of agonizing wait.
While there is no word as yet from Comex as to when he decides to officially release the iPad 2 jailbreak, however one of the beta testers of the iPad 2 jailbreak has leaked it on the internet. On the other hand, The Chronic Dev Team is also working hard on their iPad 2 jailbreak which is not going to be Greenpois0n, rather a totally different program is being created for this purpose.
The iPad 2 was launched on March 2, 2011 and shipping began on March 11 in the US. The reason why the iPad 2 was so hard to jailbreak is because the change in hardware makes it so. The A5 processor in the iPad 2 is not vulnerable to the Limera1n exploit, which is used to jailbreak all current and previous generation iOS devices, up to iOS 5 beta 1. The only way Apple can patch bootrom exploits is by upgrading the hardware, which it did in the iPad 2 and will also possibly do in the next generation iPhone.
JailbreakMe 3.0 is a userland jailbreak for iPad 2, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch 3G, 4G and the first generation iPad. A userland jailbreak is basically a client side, and is easy to find and patch. It should also be noted that the leaked JailbreakMe only jailbreaks iOS 4.2.1 – 4.3.3 on iPad 2, and will not jailbreak iOS 5 on iPad 2.
So how to jailbreak iPad 2 using the leaked beta JailbreakMe 3.0? Don’t worry, there aren’t any lengthy steps involved as with PwnageTool, Sn0wbreeze or Redsn0w. Simply follow the easy procedure given below:
