iPad 2 jail breaks kick in just days after launch

New iPad 2 owners open device following release

Just days after the Apple iPad 2 touched down and then quickly sold out in the UK, fans have begun jail breaking the second-generation tablet.

Attacking version 4.3.1 of Apple’s iOS mobile operating system software as opposed to the new dual-camera touting hardware itself, a number of iPad jail breakers are claiming to have unlocked the latest tablet release with one option entitled PwnageTool stating it can offer simple jailbreaks to users.

Counteracting moves by Apple that would seemingly make it harder to jailbreak the iPad 2, PwnageTools’ developers said: “The download of the PwnageTool is now ready for those who want to jailbreak their devices now. It has been a long wait for consumers as they waited for the Apple iPad 2 Jailbreak since Apple announced a iOS 4.3.1 that will break the vulnerability to unlock the iPad 2.”

The iPad 2 officially launched in the UK and 25 other countries across the world last Friday, March 25th, with high demand and huge launch day queues resulting in the device, which sports a slimmer, lighter form factor than its predecessor and the new A5 dual-core processor, selling out within 24 hours. Whilst Apple has been unable to confirm when stocks will reappear in flagship stores, online orders are currently facing a 3-4 week shipping delay.
