Does any remember how long it took before there was a JB for iPad 1?
One month (Apr 3 - May 2)?
Really? Wow ~ I recently JB so I was wondering what was the expected time for coming up with a JB for new devices.
When did the iPad 2 come out?
March 11 from Wikipedia... I expected it on Mar 10
Hopefully there will be something soon.
1 month is not comparing like for like. It took about 6 months for the hardware exploit for the A4 chip to be released as a working exploit (linera1n). Pardon the pun, but it isn't comparing apples with apples.
It is almost irrelevant to compare what happened in the past with what will happen with the A5 / iPad2.
Either a new hardware OR iOS software exploit must be found to enable the jailbreak on iPad2. Looking at the past can give absolutely no indication of how long this will take because the exploits are by their nature, unknown.
I was just curious how long it took for a JB for the first ipad. That was it, honest!
And I've only just worked out what Leigh's new avatar means...
Not at all Marie, It was a perfectly reasonable thread to start... I am actually quite comfortable. We are still well within what I consider to be a reasonable timeframe to be trying to discover, develop, and release a new jailbreak for a new device. I was just cautioning against any comparison of history with the current situation.
Unfortunately, as is demonstrated time and time again everywhere, people have unreasonable expectations about how and when a new jailbreak should be released. Nothing I say or do will ever change that. It's just the jailbreak circle of life!
The trick is not to let it get to you, which is where I frequently FAIL!
And if anyone is a fan of facts, like me... there is a lovely article on wikipedia which gives you a good potted history of jailbreaking, and a breakdown of all the significant milestones in the timeline...
