Well, well well – we didn’t think it would be talking about this so soon, but we stand corrected. It has just been confirmed that a member of the iPhone Dev-Team has managed to successfully jailbreak the recently released iPad 2 device running iOS 4.3.
The person responsible is Comex, and he has wasted to time in providing a picture as proof, showing his swanky new iPad 2 running on the jailbreak-only Cydia software, which you can see over at Engadget. At the moment, there is no word on a public download for this, but you can bet that Comex is working on getting a release fixed up asap.
Interestingly, it has also been confirmed that a new exploit was required to make the jailbreak possible on Apple’s new hardware, again we’re sure we’ll be hearing full details on the exploit used throughout the week.
What are your thoughts on the jailbreak? Are you shocked and surprised that this has happened so quickly? Are you patiently waiting to get Cydia up and running on your iPad 2 or are you going to stay away from jailbreaking your device?
You can keep up to date on the latest events on the iPad 2 jailbreak by following Comex’s Twitter page here. We’ll inform you when the download becomes available.
