    Getting bored checking twitter and such, not much excitement lol..
    So to spark a discussion, how long do you think it'll take for a public jailbreak and why?
    Personally, I believe it will be 1-1.5 weeks. Since all other devices will be taken care of I think they'll focus more on the iPad .
    Who knows, only time will tell. But I wanna see what everyone else is thinking. GO!

    Hopefully soon. I remember when I got iPad 1 last year, It wasn't until early may that a jailbreak came out for it. I think the iPad 2 will get more attention once the A5 shows up in the iPhone, but comex will likely come through with a userland one before iPhone 5.

    so u can get it..

    "soon" can be defined as one week or January 2012. that answer wasn't very specific but i would say it will be out in May once some of the specs of the iphone 5 are complete.

    As soon as the developers can sort out the legal issues of the jailbreak.

    There is no point whatsoever in holding Comex userland exploit back, as it is already fixed in the newest OS, meaning that it will definitely not work on iPhone 5.

    What would make sense is to release this exploit in form of a tethered jb for iPad 2 4.3 asap and then wait for iPhone 5, before releasing another exploit, which may actually work on all A5 devices.

    If I had a clue as to where to start I would be willing to help crack the ipad2.
    Given physical access to a windows or Linux server I can gain root access in about 4 minutes.
    I am just not sure how to access the file system on iOS. I dont have a mac but I am assuming that i would need the devkit.

    We have 3 top devs racing away to jailbreak this mother. Geohot just got the ipad 2, when? Like a day ago if even? He agreed to jailbreak it when I ordered mine. About 2 weeks ago. Still no ipad in the mail for me and still no jailbreak. So I think we all need a little more paitence as a jailbreak will probably be available by the end of the month.

    No chances? Okay negative nancy... Lol. I don't see how you can say that unless you're apart of one of the teams working on a jailbreak.

    Then again you could probably try to say the same about me, but the fact of the matter is there are people working hard on this jailbreak and they are doing their best and haven't given us much of a timeline to know when it'll be here. But 19 days from now is a safe bet (end of may) that it will must likely be available if not announced by then

    I understood your point.
    But 19 days ago we've seen the same posts in iPad Hacking forum ("end of April" etc.).
    I'm following all the news, all the top guys in Twitter and... there's no a single piece of evidence showing the progress. NOTHING at all! Just the bloggers re-post the same news again and again.

    My bet - Autumn. Why? Because iPhone5 will be released. It will attract more attention as it's wider spread (more hackers, more users waiting for a hack). Maybe lessons learned hacking iPhone 5 would be useful for jailbreaking iPad2 (and maybe not).
    Autumn. Not earlier.
