Breaking News: iPad 2 Jailbroken

iPad 2

Comex, developer of popular jailbreaking tools like Spirit and JailbreakMe has successfully jailbroken iPad 2 that was launched on Friday.

That was quick, especially since Apple has patched the limera1n and the SHAtter exploit in iPad 2.

Comex broke the news via the following tweets and was also congratulated by the iPhone Dev team:

chpwn: by @comex:

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!

You can checkout the photo of an iPad 2 running Cydia, the unofficial App Store for jailbreak apps.

There is currently no ETA on when it will be released. As always, we’ll let you know as soon as we’ve any further updates so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.

    Simply amazing….

  • Robles

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple themselves secretly are behind the jaibreaking seen. That would make a great movie. Just a Thought.

    • LOL

      I love conspirests that can’t spell.

      • Devraj

        HAHA… I Can ‘Seen’ What u mean… lol

  • larryw

    I love grammar police who make up words.

  • devseed

    Great job. Please dont release it until iPAD 2 goes international as they may patch it again who knows…

  • Karro

    you see guys JB are coming too fast but unlock ohhhhhh
    you should wait, you know why coz there is money in JB.

  • WantUnlock

    If only comex could release an unlock….the iPhone dev team seem to have no brains at all….it took them 2 months to successfully jailbreak 4.2.1 yet comex achieves it in 4 days
    Clearly dev team have disappointed a lot of us…I will never be donating to them again….from november they havent been able to successfully unlock what are they doing emasculating each others di cks or what :@

    • Paul

      Do you even know who members of dev-team are and if you say you donated to dev-team, you are a not being truthful because dev-team does not and have never accepted donations.

    • mbhullar

      Instead of WantUnlock you must first change your name to WantBrain. Enough said…

  • Nice job comex

  • Unlock_Watcher

    This is great news since i’m planning to buy the iPad 2 tommorow. Great Job Comex! Now only if the Dev-Team can find an unlock solution for my iPhone 4, that would be awesome too

  • when will be releasing jailbreak tool for ios 4.3?

    • Fingers21

      Read it properly!!!! It clearly states NO ETA, but updates will be available as soon as any more news!

  • fas

    Awesome, totally.

  • Ninbrown

    That’s what keeps me going… Just keep enjoying this cat and mouse game apple is playing!!!
    Comex, your are the best….! Good job guys and thx.

  • 370 000 ipad 2 total – so far.

  • Freddyj

    Just when i thought it was going to take forever after i read apple had patched it up. Iphone dev, comex, you are great at what you do. I know patience is a virtue but just knowing that the jailbreak has already been completed its hard to wait. And as much as i love apple, i still cant understand why they do what they do. Seriously, if i purchase a product it becomes mine. So why cant i do what i want with my own property.

    • hazmobile

      You’d be suprised how many people pirate a $0.99 app. That’s possibly a reason for Apple to make it secure and for people who make the apps get paid for their work. Locking the phone to a carrier, now that’s another story which I don’t agree to myself, I think you should be able to unlock if needed. Overall I love jailbreaking and good work devs!

  • badmotha

    love and respect.
    at least he deserve both…you know, being a successful nerd and all..comexxxxx you’re da man.

  • Blue

    How I miss Rock You Phone.

    Having an alternate app store is beyond awesome. Too bad Cydia seems so under developed. Unless there is serious background work going on, Cydia remains extremely slow to load, cumbersome to use, prone to crashing, hardly formatted for the iPad. The iPad status announcement was still from March of 2010!!

  • Jason

    I still cant get over the fact that there are SO many whiney people out there that EXPECT jailbreaks and unlocks …. never mind in a timely fashion. Most of the people to jailbreak and unlock just do it as a hobby not a 9-5 or even because they care about the masses. Its usually for self bragging rights. I (A panhandling for jailbreak beggar) am EXTREMELY grateful for the dev-team, geo, n comex for even sharing their time hard work with me. I worship these guys cuz i’m too lazy or stupid to do it myself. Thanks for jailbreak so i can have a cool phone. To the mother f’n whiney people : you can’t raid the barn if you didn’t plant the corn.

    There i said my piece

    • Jason

      yeah …. i know i have poor grammar n spelling …. i failed english twice 🙁

    • Jrmedic19

      Regardless of grammar. You are correct in your statement. The “hacking” scene wether it be PSP, iPhone, PC or Hackintosh it will always be hobby and purely for fun. People need to chill the F out. Otherwise these guys will just get fed up and only release their tools to their compadres. I’m not saying that it WILL happen I’m just stating that everyone should relax and enjoy the ride. IMHO
      And Thank you to Comex, my iPad 2 anxiously awaits….

      • Tired

        Whos cares…bunch of punk ass little babys anyway.

  • Hiddenvalley

    Me fail engrish? That’s unpossible!

  • Tired

    Wow thats great!!! Now we can all wait 4 months for these jack off’s to release it. Woooo Hooooo I’m so happy.

  • common don’t come and say it’s gonna take a lot of time to release the official jailbreak, but when it comes the time we will know much more about it

  • Bravo_007

    I’m writing this from my iPad 2 which is hungry for a JB lol!!! But thank you for the great work guys and hope we see it sooner than later 😀

    In the mean time I’ll just use it as my dinner plate :p hehe

    This is fake. Comx didn’t say he jailbroke the ipad 2 already on his twitter. Neither did the iphone dev team.
