    "GUnitJC: @comex does this mean jailbreakme 3.0 is out now since you just had jailbroken the new iPad 2?

    Comex: @GUnitJC No, it will take some work to package it into a jailbreak. Same deal as i0n1c."

    "Judging by his past releases, the jailbreak wont be out anytime soon, or at least not until Comex has ironed out all the issues and bugs before making it public. We also don’t have much details on whether the exploit used is a userland, or kernel based. If its the earlier one, then surely we can see something on the lines of version 3.0 of JailbreakMe, ready to untether all devices, including the new iPad 2 on iOS 4.3."

    If I were you, I'll leave jailbreaking it until untethered jailbreak is out.

    It might come out anytime soon. Be patient and watch this space.

    I'm in the same boat with your friend

    Anyone have any problems Jailbreaking 4.3.1 with Pwnagetool 4.2? Errors 1600 & 2 appear (Not on same attempt) and stop me in my tracks!

    4.3 was a bit fiddly but got it sorted, I can't get 4.3.1 to play nice however!

    It must be an issue with the custom firmware I created as 4.3.1 official works just fine.


    All sorted, sourced files elsewhere and used RamDiskFixer 1.7.2 that was just released.

    It's fine, I just need the Folder enhancer updating to support 4.3.1 (Works fine in 4.3). Celeste isn't supported because Action Menu doesn't support >4.2.1 but thats not a problem for me.

    winka45, only if you have the SHSH files for the firmware you want to use saved on Cydia.

    Crap.

    ipad crashed on me tonight while watching iplayer, damn thing went into recovery mode, only way I knew to fix it was to restore it with itunes so now i'm on 4.3 so my jailbreak has gone bye bye.

    But of a pain but at least the ipad is working and i've gained a few features since I was on 3.2 before.

    If you don't have the ECID SHSH for your iPad save on your computer or Cydia, any update will go straight to iOS 4.3

    Could you not d/l the 4.2 ipsw from elsewhere then do a restore thru iTunes?

    That's what you do download the 4.2 ipsw, but you also need the ECID SHSH for 4.2 of your iPad saved.

    Because during any update, apple always do a check to verify that you are updating to the current firmware. A way of catching jailbreakers.

    But if you've your ECID SHSH saved on your pc or cydia, you can trick apple to believe you're updating to the current firmware

    I tried the shift and open a downloaded version of 4.2.2. but when it came to updating it keept giving an error. Im just going to update to 4.3 then wait for a new jailbreak I think.

    Thanks for the advice and info guys, appreciated:thumbsup:

    Very different hardware though, which is the key to most JB's.

    They have released an unteathered Jailbreak for 4.3.1, but not for the iPad2.. So it seems that whilst 4.3.1 has been 'hacked', the iPad2 still has not.

    Only tethered though, The iPad 2 needs a new bootrom exploit, both shatter and lime rain don't work on iPad 2.
