Once again Apple has proved that they can beat their competitors with their innovations & price is no longer a deciding factor of product’s success. Apple has sold 15 million iPads, which was introduced last year and now Apple is ready to sell next generation iPad, i.e iPad 2.
Apple iPad 2 will be available for purchase from March 11 in US and from March 25st in rest of the countries. The first question which will come into mind of Apple idevice owners looking to invest in iPad 2, will it be possible to jailbreak iPad 2 ? and in this post we are attempting to enlighten you with iPad 2 jailbreak possibilities.
Apple iPad 2 will ship with iOS 4.3 & there are two possibilities for iPAD 2 jailbreak on iOS 4.3. First making use of existing bootrom exploit & second finding completely new bootrom exploit or or userland jailbreak for iPad 2. At the moment two bootrom exploits , Limera1n & SHAtter are known to be working on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, 4G & iPad on iOS 4.2.1.
Limera1n was the bootrom exploit found by Geohot and has been implemented in Greenpois0n, Sn0wbreeze, Redsn0w & PwnageTool jailbreak tools for iOS 4.2.1. We are Limera1n exploit is known to Apple for quite some time and there are high chances that Apple will fix it in iPad 2 this leaves us SHAtter exploit.
SHAtter was found by Chronic dev team and is never been implemented in any jailbreak tool but there were many rumors of SHAtter code leak which makes this option less reliable but there are still chances that SHAtter may jailbreak iPad 2 iOS 4.3.
If SHAtter & Limera1n didn’t worked then we have to wait longer for iPad 2 jailbreak as it involves finding completely new bootrom exploit which is very difficult compared to userland jailbreaks.
We feel SHAtter could jailbreak iPad 2 iOS 4.3 but only time will tell who will be the first one to jailbreak ipad 2 iOS 4.3, iPhone Dev Team or Chronic Dev Team ? and yes Geohot is still alive.
Stay tuned with us for more on iPad 2 jailbreak on iOS 4.3.
