The much-awaited jailbreak for the iPad 2 has been released.
It is an extremely simple browser-based jailbreak – available at the jailbreakme.com website. It doesn’t require getting your device into recovery mode first or anything like that. All you do to jailbreak is visit the jailbreakme site, tap the ‘Free’ button underneath Cydia icon and developer credits, then tap ‘Install’.
The lead developer on this jailbreak is comex, who had help from chpwn, saurik (founder of Cydia and Dev Team member) and others. Comex is a student at Brown university and he is currently looking for internship or other opportunities where he can help ‘make something really cool’.
I am debating about whether to jailbreak my iPad 2. I am very happy with the iPad 2 stock, and very much looking forward to iOS 5 in the Fall – but I am a little tempted to jailbreak solely for the ability to mirror from the iPad 2 to my Mac. I’ll be mulling this over a bit, or succumbing to temptation, during the course of the next couple days.
Have any of you jailbroken your iPad 2 yet?
