  • 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.

      Jailbreakme 3.0 untethered jailbreak is coming for iOS 4.3 by Comex, so I think Mobile Substate issue is solved.

      I wish i could get my hands on an iPad 2 in the first place. It seems this is the first goal to achieve. After that i can worry about the jailbreak. Why doesn't Apple make more of these for release days? After all its not their first time releasing an iDevice that has sold out. Do they not like money?

      It's all about marketing. Make enough to sell big numbers at launch, but few enough to create a shortage and thus boost the hype and desire to have one.

      Although this is good news, surely it just pushes back the ETA on the iPhone 4 unlock

      It's Chpwn's iPad and he's one of the key programmers for Cydia 1.1, which is what is installed there. He's got a short video he posted on his twitter account showing how fast it reloads.
