iPad 2 Jailbreak Release Imminent?

Yes, I know we have released some similar news over the past week or two, which actually proved to be jumping the gun, but bear with me on this one.

This time, two strong pieces of evidence suggest that the hacker who goes by the name Comex is ready to release the iPad 2 jailbreak tool, possibly even today. MultiMediaWill, a beta tester first let the cat out of the bag apparently leaking the iPad 2 jailbreak and then, the JailBreakMe domain appeared to be available for sale.

MultiMediaWill and Comex communicated yesterday via email and the messages suggested that Comex had not completely finished the JailBreakMe tool yet, but is ready to release the iPad 2 jailbreak today (or tomorrow, as it was yesterday).

In the emails MultiMediaWill apologises to Comex for having leaked the beta version of the PDF files. Meanwhile, all the PDF files and the website they were leaked to have been deleted.

Apple must surely be aware of the vulnerability that Comex is trying to exploit, therefore the company is expected to launch the iOS 4.3.4 update in the next few days.

iPad 2 owners can prepare themselves to jailbreak their tablet by saving SHSH Blobs for their iOS 4.3.3 using TinyUmbrella before the update takes place.
