iPad 2 and iOS 4.3 state of the Jailbreak

Will I be able to Jailbreak iPad 2 running iOS 4.3 when it launches? Thats a question on a lot of user's minds. We already know the jailbreak community is working towards an iOS 4.3 jailbreak. What we "do" know is that a tool won't go official until iOS 4.3 is out of beta and in the hands of consumers. Most of the reason behind this is so Apple doesn't patch it in a last minute update.

Where the iPad 2 is concerned, it's anyone's guess whether or not the solution they're currently working towards will definitely jailbreak the iPad 2. According to @p0sixninja, one of the main contributors of greenpois0n, they are hoping the SHAtter exploit will still be a viable solution on the iPad 2 as well.

While we wait for a definitive answer, check out our massive jailbreak guide and mingle with other fellow jailbreakers in waiting over in our TiPb jailbreak forums.

I found too many bugs in JB software for the original iPad (4.2) so I gave up on it and restored. Too little RAM on the iPad to cope as well. I'll try again in a few months if 4.3 gets cracked.

I hope jailbreak will ok with Greenpois0n RC7 ?!
That's question ! ;)

I really hope they save SHAtter for the iPhone 5. The A5 sounds so nice but I won't be able to get an iPhone 5 before it's jailbroken. I left jailbreak when I switched from a 3G to the 4 I have now. It was a horrible experience aside from the new speed I had.

Snowman I doubt they will wait that long to release iPhone 5 is still out sometime

While I find jailbreaking on my iphone invaluable (largely for MyWi, SB Settings, Folder Enhancer and, to a lesser extent Winterboard), I don't find many compelling reasons to JB the Ipad.

Allyson Kazmucha says:

Agreed. But my reason is I never use my iPad :p

sn0wman says:

I do realize that the iPhone 5 launch is a few months out still. But hey a man can dream :)

Alfozno Rivera says:

It's still an MC model SHAtter should work

Chris says:

@snowman yes sir :) haha

Cam says:

What Twitter client is that? It looks really nice!

Crunch says:

So iOS 4.3 looks extremely attractive to me from a feature set point-of-view, but, naturally, I don't want to lose my jailbreak. Will there be a solution to jailbreak iOS 4.3 for iPhone 4 and iPad (1st gen.) pretty much upon release? I keep reading vastly different stories on the subjects and just want a bit of clarification, if that's possible please?

Jacob says:

With all of these tweaks though, could it cause some problems? Could the system move slower? What would happen?

Usually I don't learn article on blogs, however I would like to say that this write-up very pressured me to try and do so! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thank you, quite nice article.
