A few weeks back it was reported that Comex author of the JailbreakMe is working on a new version of the tool to do the untethered jailbreak for the iPad 2. And then a hot news made circles around the net that one of the internal beta testers of the JailbreakMe 3.0 has leaked an official version of the application! However, that was an unofficial and not yet final version of the application. Finally now the JailbreakMe 3.0 is available officially! This means that the long wait is over for all the iPad 2 owners that wanted to jailbreak their device. For this to work you don’t need to be connected to the computer (as usual for the JailbreakMe). You only need an internet connection. Users familiar with the functioning of the JailbreakMe will remember that this is THE simplest way of jailbreaking the device and you don’t need to connect your device to the PC and then do the complicated procedures to jailbreak the device. JailbreakMe 3.0 not only works for the iPad 2 but also all other iDevices running iOS 4.3.3 such as iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad and iPod Touch. Please note that JailbreakMe 3.0 currently doesn’t support the versions older than the iOS 4.3.3. An other great news is that JailbreakMe 3.0 is untethered so you don’t need to connect your device to the PC to do a tethered boot. JailbreakMe 3.0 is actually based on a PDF exploit found in the Safari. This version of the JailbreakMe will NOT work for the current beta versions of the iOS 5.
Here is how to get it working on your iPad 2:
Step 1: First launch the Safari on your device and navigate to the URL http://jailbreakme.com. Now you will see the webpage as shown below:
Step 2: Now tap on the FREE button and then on the INSTALL button that appears. Now this will trigger the installation of the exploit and other jailbreak scripts on your device.
Step 3: Now wait for some time and Safari will close and which is normal. Now a Cydia icon will be visible on your Home Screen, with a progress bar.
Step 4: After the complete progress you will see the Cydia icon on your Home screen and it means that your iDevice is jailbroken untethered on the iOS 4.3.3!
Step 5: Enjoy!
