After Comex teased that the iPad 2 jailbreak is “almost ready,” a rumor has started circulating that the famed jailbreak site, JailbreakMe.com, will return today with the long-awaited jailbreak for the iPad 2.

According to Nexus404, the above image briefly appeared on Comex’s Twitter account last night, but the image link was almost immediately pulled. Comex has been working on an iPad 2 jailbreak for quite some time, and this image could be a teaser he created and published prematurely…

An iFans forum poster tells the story of finding this image,

“I was on comex’s Twitter about an hour ago when he posted a single image link. I was surprised to see it was what appears to be a flyer for his new jailbreak? When I reloaded the Twitter page it was gone completely. I still had the image in another tab, though, so I saved it to my computer. Perhaps this wasn’t intended to get out yet or maybe there was a delay? I don’t know, I’m just looking at the image unsure if he’s really intending to release it tomorrow or not. This is certainly weird.”

Before we speculate any farther, it’s important to remember that this teaser could be entirely fake. It’s a little suspicious that no one was able to grab a screenshot of Comex’s tweet with this link before it was pulled.

Comex has been known to tease his projects, as is evidenced by the current image that recently displayed when you visited www.jailbreakme.com.

We already told you how that image means that Comex has found a PDF exploit for what we believe to be the iPad 2. Interestingly, this image has been pulled from www.jailbreakme.com. Instead, the FAQ for JailbreakMe 2.0 is now displayed on the site’s homepage. Comex is obviously gearing up for a new release.

The tiny line of text under the date in the teaser image reads, “iPad2jailbrokenforlife.” If that is true, our previous speculation is correct that Comex’s jailbreak is at the hardware level – making it impossible for Apple to patch the exploit in iOS 5.

As AppAdvice points out, the QR code at the bottom right links back to Comex’s Twitter account, and the iPad 2 image on the left corner clearly states what device this jailbreak is for. JailbreakMe 3.0 will be a userland jailbreak, meaning that you’ll be able to jailbreak the iPad 2 straight from Mobile Safari, without needing to plug into a desktop computer.

If this rumor is to be believed, a userland jailbreak for the iPad 2 will be made available today at 6:17:11 PM GMT.

We don’t have any inside information on this news, and we have to remain skeptical. If an iPad 2 jailbreak is released tonight, today will be a huge day for the jailbreak community. As always, stay tuned to iDB for the latest, breaking news on this story.

Do you guys think this teaser is a hoax?

UPDATE: When something looks too good to be true, it usually is. This teaser image has been proved fake. For more information, check here.

Sorry for posting misleading information.

    Seems a little sketchy. I’d be more inclined to believe it if several people said they say the image, and can prove it with more screenshots etc. But I really hope the image is real, I will be a very happy boy if it gets released tonight!!

  • OrangeSn0w

    The picture actually hasnt been pulled. He is just setting up the script. If you go on it on an iPhone, it stays on the homepage, as it always did.

  • Sweet can’t wait!!!!’

  • c0edx

    Why don’t we ask @comex if that image is his.

  • Joe

    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.

    • Funked

      Could you post a link to your thread where MuscleNerd confirmed this is fake? Also prove you’re a mod at iFans. I’m not saying this rumour is true or false, just you should have evidence to back up what you’re saying.

    darnit!!!

  • Clozer

    We’re still diligently working on both the iPad2 jailbreak & lots of other exciting projects. Sorry, & thanks for your patience!

  • I got so happy until i scrolled down and read the update 🙁

  • Funked

    Hang on, has anyone confirmed “Joe” is actually a mod on iFans? He could be a random guy just trying to start something lol. I’m not saying he’s a liar, would just like proof before I believe that MuscleNerd himself said this was fake.

    To me (and I’ll be honest, I don’t know half of what I’m saying), the giveaway was the “jailbrokenforlife” part. If it’s another PDF username exploit, it couldn’t be permanent, could it?

    If it makes anyone feel any better p0sixninja tweeted this 10 hours ago “We’re still diligently working on both the iPad2 jailbreak & lots of other exciting projects. Sorry, & thanks for your patience!”

    I could prove that I’m a moderator on iFans, but I couldn’t be bothered. I think it would be past 6:17 GMT now, by the way, so that would invalidate this rumor even further. Kudos to the person who posted this story — rumors are rumors and I would have posted something like this too if I hadn’t known it was fake beforehand.

    Here is MuscleNerd’s post on our forums. http://www.ifans.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2685716&postcount=34

    Hopefully an iPad 2 jailbreak is on its way soon enough…

  • Reytube

    Update. Ipad 2 no jailbreak ever.

  • what if things dont go this way 🙁
