As we know iOS 5 has already got jailbreak treatment on iPhone 4/3GS right from when Apple came with the first developer beta. And recently we had updated Redsn0w tool to jailbreak iOS 5 on the iPhone 4/3GS. Although this solution is still a tethered jailbreak but more recently we did found a good compromise in the form of a semi-tethered solution that allows to boot a tethered device although apps such as Safari, Mail and Cydia apps cannot be used, but still the core phone and messaging functionality is still available. iPad 2 users have been the most unlucky ones as they still have only jailbreak solution for the iOS 4.3.3 and still waiting for the new iOS 5 jailbreak for their device.
Now there is some ray of hope that MuscleNerd a well-known member of the iPhone-dev team has posted a video demoing the jailbroken iOS 5 running on the iPad 2! As mentioned by him its still a preliminary jailbreak and there is no estimated time of arrival or release date for this. But at least this demo video proves that jailbreak is well under way and we can hope some iOS 5 jailbreak solution in the near future for the desperate iPad 2 users probably in the form of new Redsn0w tool.
Here is the video that we are talking about:
