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:

@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!

Anyone excited?

  • Shrike1978

    I would guess that it’s untethered just because Comex only works in the userland, and by that point, you’re past the places that would limit you to tethered.

  • Binary-Stalker

    What exactly did he do? The Bootrom was patched.

    • Kickstar13

      Probably another userland exploit.

    • Shrike1978

      Comex works userland, using security flaws in the userspace to inject kernel patches. That’s how his previous two jailbreaks worked (Spirit and Jailbreakme 2.0)

  • babeh

    Awesome, if he manage pass through Address space layout randomization (ASLR) with userland, that presumably p0sixninja’s Shatter Bootrom exploit and Geohot’s Bootrom exploit patched on this device.

  • Gorge W. Bush

    Wow I was going to sell my iPad 2. What dose user land mean?

    • Userland means you can jailbreak directly from the device. JailbreakMe was a userland jailbreak. You would just have to go to a site from your iPhone to get it jailbroken (no software to download, no computer required).

    • Jason Masters

      They should charge 20$ for each jailbreak and just make it commercial now that its legal right?

      • ISOHaven

        Works for me! I’d pay for it. Give money where money is due.
