Finally the moment iPad 2 owners have been waiting for has arrived, the web-based Jailbreak 3.0 is here. It’s quick, hassle free and no tethering is required. Just visit the infamous JailBreakMe.com website to hack your iPad 2 with one simple tap.
Just how easy is it to jailbreak your iPad 2? Well, Comex developers couldn’t have made it any easier. All you need to do is visit their website using your Safari browser and install the free Cydia app. If you don’t see the “free” button, chances are you simply need to go to your Safari settings, clear your cache and then reload the website. Before you do this just be sure to have iOS 4.3.3 installed in order for this hack to work. Support for earlier iOS versions including 4.2.1, 4.3.1 and 4.3.2 will be added at a later date. Currently, betas for iOS 5 are not supported but this too is probably just temporary.
Developers over at Comex have managed to locate and take advantage of a PDF exploit found in mobile safari browsers. This has left the door wide open for them to allow the proper execution of code required to jailbreak your iPad 2 device. Of course it’s more likely than not that Apple will eventually release a version of iOS which prevents future breaches.
Up until now there has been so much discussion on tablet related blogs and forums regarding this topic. Some people were beginning to lose hope and patience and even doubted that such a hack would ever become available. Ultimately though, Comex has proven to everyone that their solution was well worth the wait. Some people are even claiming it’s the easiest jailbreak they’ve ever used.
Jailbreak 3.0 also works for the following devices:
- Apple iPad1 using 4.3 to 4.3.3
- Apple iPad2 using 4.3.3
- Apple iPhone 3GS using 4.3 to 4.3.3
- Apple iPhone 4 using 4.3 to 4.3.3
- Apple iPhone 4-CDMA using 4.2.6 to 4.2.8
- Apple iPod touch 3g using 4.3, 4.3.2, 4.3.3
- Apple iPod touch 4g using 4.3 to 4.3.3
So far no bugs or glitches have been reported but as always you are urged to Jailbreak at your own risk. Just to be safe it’s also recommended that you backup all of your data before proceeding with the hack.
