Welcome to the iPadForums.net Tutorial on Jailbreaking the iPad2 with JBME 3.0 (jailbreakme.com)
Whilst this tutorial was written with iPad2 users in mind, it is perfectly suitable for iPad1 users as well, provided you are running a supported firmware version for the JBME 3.0! Check out our sticky here for more information - Jailbreaking Methods for the iPad
In order to jailbreak your iPad2 using this method it must be on IOS version 4.3.3. No other version of the operating system is supported by JBME 3.0 at the time or writing.
JBME 3.0 is a userland jailbreak which makes it one of the easiest and most straight forward methods available. This ease of use comes at a price, being that Apple can easily patch the exploit and prevent future IOS firmwares from being jailbroken in the same way. So chances are this method will not remain relevant for very long...
If you have completed the preparation and your iPad2 is at IOS Version 4.3.3 we can get started on the jailbreak process...
1. On your iPad, launch Safari and visit jailbreakme.com. You will be presented with a screen as follows:
2. Click the "FREE" button below the Cydia icon just as though you were in the Apple App Store. It will change to an "INSTALL" button.
3. Click the "INSTALL" button and Safari should crash and you will be taken back to the springboard where Cydia should begin loading onto your device just as though it was being installed via the App Store.
That's it! You are jailbroken. Wasn't that easy?
Now launch Cydia and start exploring the brave new world. Make sure you review our stickies, in particular the Ultimate List of Jailbreaking Apps to get you started...
