After weeks of waiting, a jailbreak solution for Apple’s latest firmware has finally been released. The announcement that so many iDevice hackers have been waiting for, arrived extremely early this morning courtesy the Dev Team.

The jailbreak released is for iOS 4.3.1. It covers the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, the latest 2 generations of the iPod touch, the Apple TV2, and of course the iPad. As we’ve reported previously, the iPad 2 cannot be jailbroken with this software.

But don’t worry, if you have an iPad 2 and are itching to customize it, known iPad hacker Comex is hard at work to bring you an iPad 2 jailbreak solution. We are told he has a working exploit, but hasn’t figured out how he wants to package it for mass distribution. We will certainly let you know when we have more information on his progress.

If you have an original iPad, and are wanting to jailbreak it, feel free to go ahead and upgrade to iOS 4.3.1 via iTunes.You will also want to make sure that your iTunes is updated to the latest version. If you’ve done both of those already, sit tight, we will bring you a complete step by step guide on how to jailbreak your iPad shortly.

Is anyone ready to jailbreak their iPad?

    Been waiting since I got it. But I know it’s hard work. And he’s hard at work doing it when he has time. Better to wait and do it right then rush and do it half ass. Mahalo for the hard work Dev Team

    Can anyone let me know the point of jailbreaking using this release when it removes the camera connection kit functionality – which means the the most powerful jailbreak feature or being able to transfer files back and forth via usb/sd card redundant?
