MuscleNerd Explains: Why The iPad 2 Jailbreak So Hard

Yesterday, Apple has released iOS 4.3.2 for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPad 2, iPhone Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G and iOS 4.2.7 for CDMA Verizon iPhone 4. But still iPad 2 is out from this list. That means the iPad 2 still doesn’t have a jailbreak.

It seems that the iPhone Dev-Team and the Chronic Dev Team have been taking a look at it, both MuscleNerd and p0sixninja are working hard to find an exploit, but things have been tough.

Here’s what MuscleNerd tweeted:

So far, our tests have shown my theory might be right 🙁 (Once the A5 bootrom is off, it stays off until power cycle)

and another from MuscleNerd:

the bootrom is actually inside the A5, so that would require some very advanced decapping and optics

While p0sixninja added:

Wow, I guess @MuscleNerd was right. BootROM just isn’t there… Guess I gotta go HAM on Apple now.

Bottom line is this is going to take quite a bit of reverse-engineering in order to get it to work. Apple is making it more and more difficult to jailbreak their devices. That said, if anyone reading has some knowledge that can help them out, it may be a good time to lend a hand.

Thanks
