Working iPad 2 Jailbreak Leaked… Then Quickly Pulled!



For a few minutes this morning, a working version of Comex’s much anticipated Jailbreakme 3.0 hack was leaked to the web, allowing users who visited a special site on MobileSafari to jailbreak their iPad 2s running iOS 4.3.3.

The leak’s since been taken down, but it was confirmed to work by multiple users to be a working jailbreak, and Cydia is now working on multiple iPad 2s through the userland exploit.

Here’s how the process worked:

Step 1: Launch Mobile Safari and navigate over to this URL.

Step 2: Once you’ve done that, Safari should automatically close, that’s completely normal. You should now see a Cydia icon on your Home Screen, with a progress bar, much like any other official app while it’s downloading.

Step 3: Once the Cydia icon disappears, reboot your device. Once it powers back up, which could take a little bit longer than usual, your iPad 2 should be jailbroken.

Unfortunately, the exploit has now been removed from circulation, but this confirms one thing: Comex’s iPad 2 Jailbreak works, and it’s just this close to release. Maybe it’s Comex’s 4th of July present to all of us?

    The site still seems to be working again…

    It looks like the original link is no longer working, but the new one does. I downloaded it just in case this one gets pulled too!

    I was there before they take the website down and no ipad2 PDF was listed.  Others pdf works beautiful.

    The Userland Jailbreak that was leaked is actually a Beta version of the JailBreak, comex apperently posted it yesterday, and took it down quite quickly. Obviously not before someone took it and then leaked it, I would recommend to wait for the actual release.

    All PDF links no longer work.  Can someone repost when there is one that works?  I have iPad 4.3 but wondering if I should upgrade to 4.3.3 or just wait to see what comes up.  

  • Aris Fragkiadakis ?

    It is around the corner for 4.3.3 too :) can’t wait !
