JailbreakMe 3.0 Launch Imminent [Updated]

JailbreakMe 3.0

As we wait for Comex to release the official version of JailbreakMe, Ryan Vanniekerk – co-founder of a web-based SERP tracker called SEscout has figured out a way to successfully jailbreak his iPad 2 using the files that were leaked out couple of days back.

In case you want to find out how the iPad 2 jailbreak got leaked out, you can read the story here.

Update:

Comex has released JailbreakMe 3.0.

Ryan has written a detailed blog post, which provides detailed step by step instructions on how to jailbreak iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.3. He writes:

After a bit of digging I happened across a relatively inconspicuous comment that lead me to believe that the “unable to download jailbreak files” was attempting to connect directly to Comex’s server (located at 157.22.252.87) in order to download the existing jailbreak files. However, the files attempting to be downloaded were the exact same files that had already been leaked earlier in the day, they simply existed in a separate location.

My first thought was to spoof a local webserver with the same IP that the jailbreak is connecting to in order to make it look for the files there instead.  After a bit of tinkering around I finally managed to bypass the 403 error and successfully jailbreak my iPad 2!

We would recommend you to wait for Comex to release the official version, especially since Comex has commented that the iPad 2 jailbreak that was leaked was a buggy version.

Though there were reports yesterday that the JailbreakMe.com domain is on sale, we’re hearing rumors that Comex will release it today and the “We’ll be back soon” banner on the JailbreakMe website suggests that preparations have already started.

If you don’t want to wait and don’t mind the hassle of reconfiguring your router and manipulating your DNS settings then you can follow this link to checkout Ryan’s step by step guide.

Update:

Comex has just tweeted that JailbreakMe 3.0 will only support iOS 4.3.3, the latest iOS software update:

4.3.1 and 4.3.2 will not be supported since I’m in a hurry; upgrade to 4.3.3

(if you’re patient, I’ll add support for those versions, and 4.2.1, and maybe armv6, in the future)

Comex is in a hurry to release the jailbreak as Apple is expected to patch the exploit used in iPad 2 jailbreak that was leaked over the weekend by releasing a new iOS software update (iOS 4.3.4). However, we would advice you to wait for Comex to release it, before upgrading to iOS 4.3.3.

Update:

Comex has released JailbreakMe 3.0.

As always, we’ll let you know as soon as there are any further updates, so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or join our Facebook Fan page or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.

  • Jayydoggy

    Ok I have iPad 2, 4.3.3 and I already have tiny umbrella on my windows, I have my iPhone 4 blobs saved, for some reason tiny won’t let me save my iPad 2 blobs. It says ” your to late”. Any advice? Thanks

    • hax

      Uncheck request blobs from Cydia dumbass

      • moe

        talk like a person dumbass

  • joe shmoe

    I’ll believe it when i see it. It’s been imminent for 3 months.

    Well I tried the pdf and everything works just fine on my Ipad 2 4.3.0, and any case why would i want to upgrade when everything works anyway to 4.33 or beyond. Havnt found any bugs in it as yet and the initial delay on bootup is only on first boot after install. I think really what comex was wanting was his fancy front end to the pdf link thats all. I have stored the file on my hotmail account and can re-jailbreak fro that at anytime. So doesnt really matter if he releases it or not as I cant see what improvements he can really make apart from it supporting ios 5. Just proves apple were wrong again about it being impossible to jailbreak…. Good luck Comex !!!
