  • Comex Jailbreaks the iPad 2, Two Days After Launch


    Once again comex has pushed out a jailbreak for a new device - this time within 2 days of the product launch. chpwn (who's been doing a lot of work on many UI updates to Cydia lately, and writes a host of popular tweaks in Cydia) tweeted a photo of Cydia running on a white iPad 2 just minutes ago.

    After retweeting, comex posted:

    would've had it yesterday if I didn't have to spend 1.5 days looking for a replacement exploit (which came from a most unexpected place...)
    While the exploit is obviously working and Cydia is running on the device according to the picture, it hasn't yet been packaged into a pretty UI for public consumption. I'm sure we can expect to see that soon once it's tested and ready.

    JB FTW.

      That is a good question, but i would think so since some peoples iphone replacements were coming with 4.3 from Apple and 4.3 hadn't been released yet.

      But either way, nice job Comex! You are the man.

      Come on get it right he has not pushed anything out yet. He jailbroke CHPWN ipad 2 remotely. You can be sure there is more work to be done to make it stable and releasable.

      Saying he pushed it out is just going to get everyone worked up and looking for it.

      If comex or ic0nic wait for 4.3.1 apple can close the safari hole that was discovered.
