I just bought an iPad 2 WiFi + 3G with FW 4.3.5 on it.
I learned that jailbreaking isn't possible with this combination (3g+ FW 4.3.5) but I'd like to know the following:
Will it be possible to jailbreak this combination with iOS 5 anyway?
If this is not the case I would try to give back my device or sell it.
Thanks for your comments!
Thanks, I did that already.
I just like to know if there will be a jailbreak possible on iOS 5 for the iPad 2 WiFi + 3G or if the 3G is sort of unjailbreakable.
Yes there will. It has already been reported that the community has 5 exploits which are currently active on IOS5 beta. You now need to wait for IOS5 to be released to the public and the JB to be fully developed and tested.Originally Posted by dasmot

Please review the hacking section rules and our main rules before posting!
OK, then I would not have to think about giving the device back or selling it.
Thanks a lot for your feedback! I will try to be patient and await iOS 5 and the following jailbreak
BTW: Can somebody explain the reason why downgrading/jailbreaking an iPad 2 3G isn't possible at 4.3.5?
And why is it possible with iOS 5 when this is out?
The main answer is that it's all about the software and it's vulnerabilities (and those who want to try to exploit them).
And, the reason why it'll be possible with iOS 5 is two-fold: (1) it's a new iOS which will have more new code to pore over to see if it can be exploited and (2) more people are going to look at iOS 5 now than at older versions of iOS 4.x. It's the nature of the beast - use/look at the new stuff, not the old.
Hope that helps and let us know how things go.
