Comex Responds to Stolen iPad 2 Jailbreak, Warns iPad 2 Users to Save SHSH Blobs

Comex has responded to the leaked iPad 2 jailbreak that was apparently stolen using a possible dictionary attack.

Congratulations, some moron used a dictionary attack(?) to leak a buggy version and put me on a useless time limit.

Let's hope the time limit isn't too short... hasn't been in the past but could always change. Everyone use TinyUmbrella and save 4.3.3.

Hopefully, Apple isn't able to close the exploit before comex finishes the jailbreak. To be safe please follow comex's advice and save your SHSH Blobs using one of the tutorials below...

iPad 2 Jailbreak For iOS 4.3.3 JailbreakMe 3.0 Leaked In The Wild

We strongly
recommend all to stay away from any unauthorized released of any jailbreaks (for safety and security reasons) if there is a working jailbreak then it should be out shortly, please this post is only to show that there is a working jailbreak. We have stayed away from this jailbreak and are waiting for an official release from comex

A few weeks ago, we reported that Comex, author of JailbreakMe, was working on a fully untethered iPad 2 Jailbreak. After two weeks of radio silence from the developer, what seems to be JailbreakMe 3.0, with support for the iPad 2, was leaked by one of the private beta testers. Here’s how to get it.

All you’ll need is an iPad running iOS 4.3.3 or under (iOS 5 isn’t supported yet) and an Internet connection. No computer is required for this jailbreak.

(Based on the video embedded below)

Step 1: Launch Mobile Safari and navigate over to this URL.

Step 2: Once you’ve done that, Safari should automatically close, that’s completely normal. You should now see a Cydia icon on your Home Screen, with a progress bar, much like any other official app while it’s downloading.

Step 3: Once the Cydia icon disappears, reboot your device. Once it powers back up, which could take a little bit longer than usual, your iPad 2 should be jailbroken.

For other iOS devices on iOS 4.3.3, check out this link (or this mirror here).

Check out the following video for more information:

Important Disclaimer: these files weren’t officially released by Comex, and could therefore be completely fake, or even harmful. There’s nothing stopping this from being an elaborate scheme to distribute malware. If you want to play it safe, do not apply this jailbreak just yet and wait for the official version, which should be available at Use this method at your own risk. We at Redmond Pie haven’t tried it, and wont recommend you to try it either.

JailbreakMe, which first became available in 2007, is by far the easiest way to jailbreak an iOS device. Since its inception, it relied on a PDF exploit in Mobile Safari, much like it does today. As other jailbreak methods became more and more complicated, JailbreakMe has remained as simple as opening a PDF document.

This isn’t the first tool made by this developer that was allegedly leaked ahead of time. Last year, Frash, a tool that allowed Flash to be downloaded onto iOS devices, was leaked ahead of time.

UPDATE 1: Confirmed! This actually works. The following image, courtesy of our reader Chris De Jager, shows Cydia 1.1.2 running on iPad 2, iOS 4.3.

UPDATE 2: Links to 4.3.3 PDFs for iPad 2, which were posted here, have been taken down.

(Thanks to Ven000m for the hat tip!)
