JailbreakMe 3.0

Comex – developer of JailbreakMe – the popular web-based method to jailbreak iOS 4.0.x has just updated the JailbreakMe website, indicating that he may release an updated version of JailbreakMe (probably JailbreakMe 3.0) – the popular browser-based jailbreak tool.

When iPad 2 was launched, Comex has revealed that he successfully jailbroken it, however Apple was quick to fix the iPad 2 jailbreak vulnerability in iOS 4.3.1.

Since then iPad 2 users are still waiting for a jailbreak as tools like Redsn0w, PwnageTool and Sn0wbreeze that have been released to jailbreak iOS 4.3.x don’t support iPad 2.

Comex tweeted the following:

The updated website currently has a photograph (as seen above) of a ski slope with a sign that says “PDF”, which suggests that he has discovered a new PDF exploit – similar to the one used for JailbreakMe 2.0. JailbreakMe 2.0 was the mother of all jailbreaking solutions as it allowed users to jailbreak their iOS device using mobile Safari.

Comex hasn’t provided any more information, so it needs to be seen if the new version of JailbreakMe will support iPad 2 or all iOS devices and if it’s for iOS 4.3.x or iOS 5 beta 1. We can’t wait to find out. Any guesses?
