Why is everyone assuming they are waiting for IOS5?
I think your first query is well covered in the NEWS thread. Did you read that yet? Always read that thread for the facts. There is no reason for the iPad2 JB which Chromic Dev Team are working on to be released after IOS 5 from what we know. The exploit for 4.3 is already patched. Waiting for IOS5 is not logical.
However, IF there is another jailbreak in the works which is userland exploit based, the developers of that one MAY hold off once they see a beta of IOS IF the same exploit is available and remains unpatched. But that is pure speculation.
And, yes, it is highly likely that your iPad2 will be delivered with 4.3.3. It just depends when it was manufactured, and all current new iPads have 4.3.3 on them.
Because iOS5 is due soon and it wouldn't be the first time the dev team skipped a firmware.
In my clueless opinion, the exploit they're using is not the one originally patched in 4.3.1. That could be why they aren't promising support for 4.3< firmwares, but they aren't shutting the door on it completely. If it was that exploit, it would be a straight up no.
Well, I was thinking that maybe they'll test the exploit for iOS 5, to see if it works... You know? By holding off the JB, Apple cannot know how to patch it. If they release the iPad 2 JB now, Apple may patch it for iOS 5. Thus creating more work for them if the JB doesn't work, seeing as they have to find a new exploit for iOS 5.
I can't quote the person who said it because the other thread is closed, but I think whoever said comex's iPad can't be 4.3 is probably mistaking him with i0n1c. Comex jailbroke his iPad right after launch.
False...comex jailbroke remotely chpwn's iPad, not his.
LOL You realise it was MuscleNerd that said it, right? I doubt he is mistaking anyone for anyone else!
Whos jailbreak do we expect first for 4.3.3? Chronic dev team or iPhone dev team?
When Musclenerd posted that yesterday, out of the blue, made my ears go up. He said it for a reason and maybe that is why the jailbreak is taking longer then expected to be released..he said that Comex's iPad that had Cydia on it was NOT purchased when the iPad 2 went on the market, then he said "hint hint" as he was saying that it did NOT have 4.3 firmware on it..if they can jailbreak it for any firmware above 4.3 then it will work on 4.3.3 so I am hoping that is the case..otherwise why even say it
You have a very good point, and although I'm on 4.3, I do hope your right, sadly however the only guarantee we've been given is 4.3 at the moment but that's not to say that higher firmwares won't eventually be jailbroken.
