    Since comex has kindly released the source code for jailbreakme 3.0, how hard would it be to update it to work on ipad2 4.3.1 and 4.3.2?

    From what I understand the PDF font exploit it uses is in IOS pre 4.3.4 so it should be exploitable? Then is it just a matter of updating some memory offsets, etc.? Or is there something magical about 4.3.3 that makes it more exploitable than 4.3.1 and 4.3.2, etc.?

    Comex's github has changelogs going back to January - which is pre-4.3.3 release so it makes me think he did a bunch of the work for 4.3.1 originally and so maybe there's hope for making jailbreakme work for IOS pre 4.3.3 too...

    Yes, a talented programmer could make the exploit work with 4.3.1, 2 and 4.3 in theory if so inclined.

    And 4.3 was the release OS for iPad2 Tim! So there have been 6 iOS 4.x versions for it so far... :D

    Really, what happened was that Comex was too exhausted to support other iOSs, and said that for now, one 4.3.x jailbreak is FINE, as all the others are just bug fixes. If you really want to JB on 4.3.3 and under, get an iPhone.
