We have some huge expectation from Chronic Dev when it comes to the iPad 2 jailbreak. It seems they are too active to do it for us. iPad 2 users are too curious to get 4.3.1 untethered jailbreak.
Chronic Dev Team key member Joshua Hill aka @p0sixninja seems optimistic enough about untethered iPad 2 jailbreak. That is what he has tweeted:
A lot of progress has been made in the past few days, but we’re still working on dumping iPad2 BootROM. No ETA. Timelines are unpredictable when your working with new and unknown hardware
Its a great news that they have made a lot of progress. But let us mention that we are not creating any hype. Its just to tell that iPad 2 jailbreak is imminent and sooner or later you will get it. So be patient.
Untethered iOS 4.3.1 exploit for iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad1 and iPod Touch3G and 4G is developed by Stefan Esser (@i0n1c) who is a security expert. If you unaware, the hacker jumped to the iPhone jailbreaking scene for the very first time. He found a vulnerability, developed an exploit and handed it to the iPhone Dev Team. After that, the Dev Team tested it and used it behind their tools and released Redsn0w 0.9.6, PwnageTool 4.3. Sn0wbreeze 2.5 also uses the same exploit released by iH8sn0w for Windows users. So its clear that Stefan Esser’s exploit do not work on iPad 2 thats why we are waiting for Greenpois0n RC7 by Chronic Dev Team.
