JailbreakMe 3.0 Returns Today with iPad 2 Jailbreak? [Updated: Fake]

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…

iPad 2 Jailbreak is “Almost Ready?”

Last week we broke the news about a teaser Comex had released on the JailbreakMe website, which consisted in a cryptic image suggesting that he might have found a new exploit. At the time, we speculated that it could be related to an iPad 2 jailbreak.

It looks like whatever Comex is working on – and we do believe it’s an iPad 2 jailbreak – is “almost ready”…

New PDF Exploit Uncovered By Comex in iOS, Return of JailbreakMe?

We’re calling it, folks: famed jailbreak hacker, Comex, has uncovered another PDF exploit in iOS that will allow for a userland jailbreak, ala JailbreakMe.

This is based off the above teaser image, which Comex just announced on his Twitter and is available for viewing on jailbreakme.com. If our detective work is correct, we expect a new, untethered, userland jailbreak for iOS.

Comex’s iOS 4.3 Jailbreak uses a Userland Exploit

Last week we reported about Comex being the first to jailbreak iOS 4.3 on the iPad 2. Today we find out a bit more information about this iOS 4.3 jailbreak. In a reply to a tweet asking him what kind of exploit Comex had found in iOS 4.3, he said that he uses a userland exploit, meaning the jailbreak might be applied directly from the device, a la JailbreakMe.

Because a userland jailbreak can easily be patched via a software update, and with the rumors of iOS 4.3.1 coming in the next couple weeks, I doubt we will see Comex’s jailbreak before then…

Jailbreak for iPhone 3GS iOS 4.1 Won’t Be Released Until November

GreenPois0n is going to be released on Sunday. It will jailbreak the iPhone 4, iPad, and iPod Touch 4G. It won’t however jailbreak the iPhone 3GS. So what happens to those of you who have an iPhone 3GS?

Well, yesterday we confirmed that Comex is working on a jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS but if I were you, I wouldn’t hold my breath too much on that as MuscleNerd made it clear that such a jailbreak wouldn’t be released until November, when iOS 4.2 is released…

About the iPhone iOS 4.1 Jailbreak

The Dev Team recently confirmed there will not be a jailbreak for iOS 4.0.2 because iOS 4.1 is right around the corner and really, it would be a waste of time, but most importantly, a waste of exploit. This being said, I bet our favorite team of hackers is currently working hard on the iOS 4.1 beta release, trying to find a hole in there.
