MuscleNerd has announced this in a series of tweets. This is what he has said on his Twitter account:

@kunalshaha his untether will be in both redsn0w and PwnageTool forms

@branz1 remember, i0n1c’s untether doesn’t cover iPad2 yet…so must still wait for a legal method to distribute comex’s 4.3 JB for iPad 2
