We apologize if you got excited about the return of JailbreakMe today. A rumor got started this morning that claimed Comex was releasing his iPad 2 jailbreak through JailbreakMe.com this afternoon.

As it turns out, the teaser image (reportedly from Comex’s Twitter account) that started this rumor has been proved fake, and we’re back to the drawing board in terms of an iPad 2 jailbreak ETA.

As you can see by the above tweet from Dev Team frontman MuscleNerd, Comex wasn’t planning on giving a more exact timeframe for his jailbreak. MuscleNerd also stated that followers of Comex that subscribe to SMS updates would have received the link to this image as well.

The renowned hacker already said that his jailbreak is “almost ready,” and that’s all we have to go on.

In regards to the iFans forum posting that started this whole mess, an iFans moderater got in contact with us and shared this information:

“I’m a moderator over at iFans, where this was originally posted, and I just wanted to confirm that this is not a true story. This user joined the site purely to post this image in the hopes of spreading misleading information. MuscleNerd actually came onto our site and more-than-less confirmed that this wasn’t something Comex posted. If anyone follows Comex via SMS, they’d have received a link to this Tweet even if it was “deleted.” It’s fake.”

The user account that posted (and assumedly made) the teaser image that started this rumor has been banned from the iFans forum.

We’re sad that this news is fake, but we’re still holding out hope for an iPad 2 jailbreak coming very soon. Member of the Chronic Dev Team, P0sixninja, has assured the community that the iPad 2 jailbreak is being “diligently” worked on as we speak.

At iDB we do our best to report the news and not this fake stuff, but sometimes we make mistakes. The truth is that there’s no exact ETA for the iPad 2 jailbreak, and we’re sorry for the confusion.

Thanks for reading.

  • Ah that’s a bummer. I was looking forward to it.

  • Spoon2

    • iOs5

      how many “SUNDAY WE HAD IN 1 YEAR?” without the exact date…. we are not sure WHEN IT WILL BE RELEASED…

  • Lee

    are you all having a joke at everyone’s expense i can’t believe serious code based users as your self’s allow total idiots to keep coming out with false dead lines and release dates. I find this to be insulting from a group of individuals as cleaver as your self’s. It is not only unfair and gutting to every one expecting the release when promised by your false release dates. But I am sure it works out great for the large hit’s to those websites that you are all selling advertising banners on each time this happens.
    hopefully Sunday will be a fun day. But I have read about comex jailbreak the ipad 2 since day one where is this jailbreak i don’t see it just massive banner sales and millions of website hit’s

      lol boo hoo, these guys don’t owe u a jailbreak, instead of crying about how they haven’t released anything to your timescale why don’t you find an exploit and make a jailbreak yourself? Oh wait, you probably can’t !!

      All you see lately on blogs is people constantly bitching because they want a jailbreak and they want it now, tbh any1 who bought an iPad 2 knowing full well it wasn’t breakable but expecting it to be as soon as they got it is a fool. Patience is a virtue and let’s not forget these guys are doing this for free, no1 charges you for the jailbreak software so give them a break !!

    • Totally agreed ballbreak
      dont understand why people have to complain even when they are getting free stuff,
      and as far as fake deadlines go, comex didnt give a fake deadline, some douche bag on some forum did

  • Tori Black

    only reason Apple delayed IOS5 release date was their expectation of jailbreak coming to market earlier.. so they thought they would override that with the new ios.. now they are desperate as they don’t know what will hit them..

  • babeh

    we ll wait, tegra tablet sucks at performance. Unless there will be same android tablet powered chip as same as ipad2 or newest psp.

  • Ivo

    That is stupid childish game

  • Cameron

    I knew it was fake! K not really =D But seriously JailbreakMe was the first jailbreak tool I used and I feel like it’s been given up on. I mean how hard is it for a jailbreak developer to make a jailbrake tool?

    • kihtap

      I know! seriously! OMG, I mean research scientists have been trying to find a cure for AIDS for 30 years now. How hard is it for these “cure” finders to find a cure?! They are all slackers! Right?

      Jeez. If you dont know anything about it, dont make stupid comments and dont assume anything.

  • I realized it was fake! JailbreakMe had been the initial jailbreak tool I used and I also think that it’s been given up on. I mean how hard could it be for any jailbreak developer to create a jailbrake instrument?
