    I have a new iPad2 with 4.3.1. It was never updated and I'm not able to get 4.3.3 on it. Any ideas?
    Thanks you.

    The latest version of iOS, the iPad's operating system, is 4.3.5. Only that version - and no other whatsoever - is now available.

    Thanks a lot for your replies. I guess there is no hope for me to jailbreak my iPad?

    No. No hope for the time being and probably quite a while yet. Sorry.

    At the bottom of my thread pages - ￿yesterday - was an advertising link which proclaimed to be able to jailbreak an iOS device of 4.3.5. It seemed to be in dissagreement with all the comments about it here, and yet, there it was.

    How can the forum be allowing those links if it is not a valid proceedure?

    Not sure why my above post shows no text in the reply. It should have contained this:

    I see now that one can not copy and paste text into these reply boxes. That's strange. I'll retype.

    If you have an iPad1 then a tethered JB for 4.3.5 is available. The OP stated they had an iPad2.

    If you can provide details we will get it addressed. It might come as a surprise to you Brian, but we don't get to control every single advert that appears on the internet. Like any business we get our advertising provided to us as a service by various providers including Google. There are an unfathomable number of advert page impressions every day. Some of the content will be driven by cookies based on sites you have visited from your PC. Not everyone gets to see the same ads. I visited the HP website yesterday and I can tell you all the adverts on here today have been showing me HP.
    Sometimes things which shouldn't appear do, and when those are pointed out to us, then we take action.

    For the avoidance of doubt 4.3.5 can be jailbroken (tethered) on any device EXCEPT the iPad2. Any site / service telling you otherwise is lying, especially if they are trying to sell you a jailbreaking service. Let us know what it is and we will see what can be done.

    Hope that clarifies.

    Tim, I guess you could see the text that I could not.

    Ok, I missed that part, but still seem to remember seeing "Untethered" mentioned there. I'm sure the advertiser was being purposfully unclear about it all in order to lure unsuspecting and inexperienced prospective buyers into the web.

    Thanks,
