Some people believe that media outlets misinterpreted tweets from p0sixninja the other day, stating that he and the Chronic Dev team were almost done with an iPad 2 jailbreak. Even MuscleNerd sent a message out on Twitter, trying to stop the hype.
“Despite recent rumors, the only iPad 2 JB close to reality is Comex, patience please.”
His message came in light of dozens of tech blogs (including us) reporting that the Chronic Dev team was getting close to finishing an iPad 2 jailbreak. The new Apple tablet has been out almost a month now and iDevice hackers have yet to produce a viable solution to jailbreak it.
While we aren’t sure of Comex’s latest jailbreak status, it appears that MuscleNerd was wrong about the Chronic Dev team’s progress. p0sixninja tweeted yesterday,
“A lot of progress has been made in the past few days, but we’re still working on dumping iPad 2 BootROOM.”
Although he mentions that there is no ETA, he does mention that his iPad 2 has already been jailbroken, and gives a shout out to Comex for all of the help.
A Twitter follower asked p0sixninja if he and Comex were working together, to which he replied
“That’s up in the air right now. We’ll see how things progress between me and @MuscleNerd in the next few days.“
It doesn’t matter who finishes first, I just hope we see a jailbreak solution for the iPad 2 before Apple releases iOS 4.3.2. For those unaware, Apple patched Comex’s original iPad 2 exploit in iOS 4.3.1, delaying a jailbreak solution for the new tablet for a month (and counting). As always, we’ll keep you updated on the latest iPad 2 news.
What do you think, are we getting close to an iPad 2 jailbreak?
