iPad 2 Jailbreak Leaked and Available

Earlier today, a user enrolled in the beta test campaign for an upcoming iPad 2 jailbreak leaked the beta version of the tool to the public, allowing any iPad 2 users to jailbreak their device. The tool, called JailbreakMe 3.0, is not final yet, as Dev team member Comex is still putting final touches to the jailbreak – note that despite some bugs, the beta seems fairly stable, based on our early tests. Not much is known about the method used by the jailbreak at this stage, as it has not been officially released yet, but it is apparently using an undocumented PDF exploit allowing the tool to jailbreak iPad 2s running iOS 4.3. Interestingly enough, the new jailbreak uses a method very similar to the one used by Comex to jailbreak iOS 3.x and 4.0 devices: back in August 2010, Comex launched a website to allow iOS-powered devices users to jailbreak their device via a PDF exploit, and users only needed to go to jailbreakme.com via Mobile Safari to instantly jailbreak their device. Simply head over to this site to get the tool (embedded within a PDF file). As always, even though jailbreaking is considered legal, keep in mind that Apple sees it as a warranty-voiding act, so do it at your own risk. Please do not use jailbreaks to install copyrighted/paid content you haven’t purchased yourself.
