by casey on May 3, 2011

Previously we have updated you that GeoHot is intended to jailbreak iPad 2 device.He has been teased by Chronic Dev Team key member Joshua Hill to make aniPad 2 jailbreak exploit. If you are unaware, iPad 2 is the only device left that has no tethered / untethered jailbreak solution on the latest iOS 4.3.1 and iOS 4.3.2 firmware. Let us update you that the jailbreak iPad 2 by GeoHot will be a bootrom level exploit. Hopefully it will not be a userland jailbreak.

A few of you might be thinking the difference between userland and bootrom level exploit. Follow the below paragraph if you are unaware of it.

Difference between Bootrom and Userland exploits:

We are not going to go into the details and depth as we are writing it for the people who are a little less technical. Bootrom level are the ones which are hardware based exploits and cannot be fixed until there is a change or upgrade in the hardware by the company. For example, if Geohot finds a bootrom level exploit for the iPad 2 device, it will not be possible to fix it as Apple cannot revise the hardware. If they upgrade the hardware in the iPad 3, then it will be fixed otherwise no chance. Such vulnerabilities which results in a hardware based exploit are normally complicated to find.

On the other hand, userland jailbreaks can be easily fixed with a new firmware upgrade. Like the Stefan Esser’s untethered jailbreak exploit for iOS 4.3.1 and iOS 4.3.2. His exploit can be patched by Apple if the introduce a new iOS version.

Remember there are no ETAs for iPad 2 jailbreak. Realistically, it will take some time as GeoHot still have to buy an iPad 2 device. Its just he has confirmed that he will try.

GeoHot remained busy fighting and defending himself against a lawsuit by Sony. If you are unaware of this, GeoHot was sued by Sony forjailbreaking PlayStation3 PS3 firmware 3.55. The case is over now as both parties are settled down and he is back toiOS jailbreaking.

    Why does GeoHot need to buy an iPad2? I am sure he can get 100s of them free from users waiting for a Jailbreak on iPad2. nnI am also wondering why Comex isnt releasing the iPad2 jailbreak from 4.3 when he has already done it>?
