@Comex strikes again with new exploit

Renowned iOS hacker @Comex has posted photographic proof that he has already jailbroken the just-launched Apple iPad 2. According to @Comex's Twitter feed, previously used iOS exploits were locked down and he had to use a new exploit to get around the new measures. The details of the hack have not yet been made public, although he is already working towards releasing the hack for the public.

In the picture below, @Comex has installed Cydia on his White iPad 2 64GB (Verizon). Among his tweets, he makes some comments about the new Apple hardware and notes that he is "Liking the iPad 2 in everyway except camera quality and pixel density." He also adds that "I also hope that 512MB RAM is enough."

@Comex then subsequently posted a brief video of the hacked iPad 2, demonstrating just how quickly the new dual-core device reloads data running Cydia 1.1.

    Not worth the hassle...

    It looks like Apple considers the effort to prevent jailbreaking (or make it very difficult) not really worth the hassle. With the exception of a tiny, minuscule number of hobbyists who jailbreak for whatever reasons, owners of iOS devices just don't know, or care to know, what jailbreaking is and what it brings to the platform. Clearly, the devices work well for them without the jailbreaks (who would have thunk it...?).
