This is the best news lately if you are an iPad 2 owner. It took a while but the iPad 2 jailbreak is finally here, and this time is not a leak anymore but official. The jailbreak is web based and you’ll need to point your browser, load a PDF file at this point a certain vulnerability in the PDF renderer will execute some code and install Cydia on your iPad. The Jailbreak 3.o is not limited to iPad 2 but pretty much every iOS based device under the sun including Apple TV, iPad 1 and 2, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, etc. Unfortunately the upcoming iOS 5closed the vulnerability used for this jailbreak method.
Here is how to do it:
Note: This method was successfully tested on an iPad 2 running iOS 4.3.3
1. User your ipad 2 to navigate to JailbreakMe.com website
2. Click on the Free button
3. Click on Install Button
4. The Safari browser will close and a Cydia app will start installing on your Home screen
5. Several seconds later Cydia will finish installing and you are good to go, that’s it.
If you navigate to Installed Packages in Cydia, you’ll see by default saffron-jailbreak-ipad2.1-8j2 with comex as a contact. This is where the goodies are coming from! Thank you!
