Late last week, we saw our first iOS 4.3 jailbreak shown off on video by iPhone hacker @i0n1c, which claimed it to be in the “Alpha stage”.
And now, famous iPhone hacker, @Comex has found another exploit in iOS 4.3, being the very first to jailbreak the new iPad 2 with the updated bootROM. In addition to announcing it on his own Twitter account, the official @iphone_dev account has also announced Comex’s huge accomplishment.
@chpwn: by @comex: http://t.co/osP6lz@comex: would’ve had it yesterday if I didn’t have to spend 1.5 days looking for a replacement exploit (which came from a most unexpected place…)@iphone_dev: Congrats to @comex for jailbreaking yet another brand new device (iPad2) while 2500 miles away from it!
The picture above demonstrates the jailbreak on the new iPad 2. Although, Comex has not provided any details yet as to whether this jailbreak is an untethered jailbreak (hassle-free), or whether it works on all iDevices including the iPhone 4 running iOS 4.3, we would assume it is an untethered jailbreak for all iDevices.
We’ll keep you updated when we hear more on the jailbreak!
