Apple's iPad 2 can now be jailbroken
Easy iPad 2 jailbreak released via

When it comes to jailbreaking iOS devices, there has been a working solution for just about every iPod touch and iPhone available. Even the original iPad has had a jailbreak solution for quite some time. 

The iPad 2, on the other hand, has been quite difficult to crack by software hackers. Now the chains are finally off, and the iPad 2 (along with its other iOS brethren) can be jailbroken via a simple browser-based utility. 

JailbreakMe 3.0 follows up on a similar browser-based jailbreak that was released last year. All a user needs to do is to visit, click on the "Free" button, click "Install", and the untethered jailbreak will start. Not surprisingly, this method of installing the jailbreak is similar to downloading an app from the App Store to add some familiarity to the experience. 

According to the Dev-Team blog, the following devices are supported:

  • iPad1: 4.3 through 4.3.3
  • iPad2: 4.3.3
  • iPhone3GS: 4.3 through 4.3.3
  • iPhone4: 4.3 through 4.3.3
  • iPhone4-CDMA: 4.2.6 through 4.2.8
  • iPod touch 3g: 4.3, 4.3.2, 4.3.3
  • iPod touch 4g: 4.3 through 4.3.3

As is usually the case with jailbreaks, install at your own risk. Also, take the Dev Team's advice and install the PDF Patcher 2 utility from Cydia to avoid any malicious attacks from the PDF exploit that Apple left wide open.

Except the fanboys are so quick to make stuff up on anything that's not apple. Plus so many Apple users want to be jailbroken so they can add more stuff/ features to their devices. At the same time they harp on Android users needing to Root to get their device to be usable (which is clearly not the case).
