Many of you may have never heard the world of Comex and their Jailbreak iPad application. Today the long awaited Jailbreak relaunch of the iPad unlock called JailbreakMe was released. This iPad app hack was designed to be downloaded via web-based iOS devices that are running iOS 4.3.3. If you’re not already familiar with JailbreakMe, it has risen to the top as one of the best unlocks for iOS devices. Basically you visit their website at www.jailbreakme.com within mobile Safari on your iPad or iPad 2. Press the green install button and JailbreakMe does all the rest. We found the process to be quick and easy and took only a few minutes to complete. The simplicity of the process has to do with that it is all done through Safari on your iPad without the need to sync to your Mac or PC to perform the hack.
However you should be aware of that the JailbreakMe hack uses security holes discovered by Comex which is how this app gains access to your iPad. This Jailbreak hack uses a PDF exploit in order to unlock iOS which could leave your iPad or any other iOS device vulnerable to security holes and possible attacks. So if you choose to jailbreak your iPad tablet it is highly recommended that you download a patch from the Cydia store called the, “PDF Patcher 2″. According to the experts over at iPhone Dev-Team this patch should eliminate any risk to your iPad device. We also tried this download and it worked seamlessly, also.
