It looks like the moment has arrived for iPad 2 owners, as fresh developments have revealed that an official jailbreak solution may be released today, following on from prior leaks as part of the JailbreakMe 3.0 software.
If you have been following the iPad 2 jailbreak siutation closely, you’ll know that the jailbreak software JailbreakMe 3.0 was leaked recently online, although it wasn’t the final version and contained many bugs.
However, thanks to a published conversion between the initial JailbreakMe 3.0 leaker and the creator of the software Comex, who you should also be familiar with since he’s a key member of the iPhone Dev Team. During this conversion, Comex revealed that the official release of JailbreakMe 3.0 is imminent, and could even be released at some point today.
He stated that he has been hard at work on the current issues within JailbreakMe 3.0, but revealed that it ‘could be ready by tomorrow’ with that comment coming at 12.15am as seen over at Redmond Pie.
Comex isn’t one to give out false information to users, so it is very good news indeed. The iPad 2 is the only mobile device from Apple that has yet to be cracked open, so it’s going to be a very momentous occassion once the jailbreak is finally available to the masses. The best thing about JailbreakMe compared to other jailbreak software, is the ease in which the jailbreak can be applied. No longer will you have to mess about finding tethered, or untethered jailbreaks as version 3.0 of the software just requires one click from a user to result in a jailbroken iPad device with easy access to the Cydia store.
No doubt that Apple will also be aware of this news, and perhaps the thing that is troubling Comex will be the fact that Apple may have gotten hold of the leaked version of JailbreakMe 3.0 and are currently figuring out how to fix up the loopholes so that the official version may be rendered useless if Apple add new security to the iPad 2.
Having said that, even if Apple do figure out a way to block JailbreakMe 3.0, it’s only a matter of time until Comex and the gang come up with another solution to users. If you are currently waiting for an iPad 2 jailbreak, let us know your thoughts on a potential release of JailbreakMe 3.0 today.
If we get an update on when the jailbreak will be available exactly, we’ll be sure to let you know.
