Since the announcement of Apple iPad 2 we have been tracking iPad 2 jailbreak progress, With the failure of SHAtter & Limera1n bootrom exploit in iPad 2, the iPad 2 jailbreak looked impossible but again iPhone hackers proved themselves with first success from Comex who is pioneer of many untethered jailbreaks demoing iPad 2 untethered jailbreak.
However the dreams of iPad 2 jailbreakers shattered quickly with yesterday’s news about Apple working on iOS 4.3.1 and it also has fix for iPad 2 jailbreak, until now nobody knew the Comex iPad 2 jailbreak whether is it userland jailbreak or bootrom level exploit.
But today we have some concrete information (based on twitter conversation of Comex), Comex has userland jailbreak for iPad 2 but he has also hinted about iPad 2 bootrom vulnerability being discovered and exploited.
You may ask,why is it important to know what type of jailbreak is ? Userland jailbreaks are easy to patch with just software update on other hand bootrom level exploits makes device pwned for life and it can’t be patched with simple software update and requires hardware changes.
Now that you know iPad 2 bootrom vulnerability is in the hands of iPhone hackers we can atleast expect tethered jailbreak for iPad 2 for any iOS update.
Stay tuned with us for more on iPad 2 jailbreak.
