ipad 2 finally jailbroken by comex at jailbreakme.com

There was already a Redsnow jailbreak by the dev-team for most iOS devices, but no carrier unlock yet for the iPhone devices.   But the iPad 2 used a different platform, has been quite difficult to crack by developers. Now the chains are finally off, and the iPad 2 (along with its other iOS brethren) can be jailbroken via a simple browser-based utility.

Comex comes up with JailbreakMe 3.0 on a similar browser-based jailbreak that was released last year. All a user needs to do is to visit jailbreakme.com, click on the “Free” button, click “Install”, and the untethered jailbreak will start. not surprisingly, this method of installing the jailbreak is similar to downloading an app from the App Store to add some familiarity to the experience.


According to the Dev-Team blog, the following devices are supported:

  • iPad1: 4.3 through 4.3.3
  • iPad2: 4.3.3
  • iPhone3GS: 4.3 through 4.3.3
  • iPhone4: 4.3 through 4.3.3
  • iPhone4-CDMA: 4.2.6 through 4.2.8
  • iPod touch 3g: 4.3, 4.3.2, 4.3.3
  • iPod touch 4g: 4.3 through 4.3.3

As is usually the case with jailbreaks, install at your own risk. also, take the Dev Team’s advice and install the PDF Patcher 2 utility from Cydia to avoid any malicious attacks from the PDF exploit that Apple left wide open.

Older firmwares are not supported for jailbreak, and there is still no carrier unlock for iphones or ipad 1 ipad 2 3g devices.

ERROR there was a problem downloading the jailbreak files. Invalid Checksum.

This is usually just server offline or overload, wait awhile and try again.

ERROR: there was a problem downloading the jailbreak files. HTTP response code 404

Your iOS device should be listed above, only iOS firmwares versions 4.3.3 supported for now. Solution is to either upgrade restore to version 4.3.3, or wait for Comex’s lower version jailbreaks to come out.


Jailbreak users will have Cydia automatically installed and these Cydia apps are all fully compatible and working.
