Jailbreakme registers over 2 million jailbreak attempts in mere four days after launch
It was just a couple of days ago when Jailbreakme released its latest 3.0 version supporting iOS devices like the iPad 2 and others running 4.3.x, but it's already got significant traction having registered over 2 million taps on the jailbreak button, according to a tweet by one of the main contributors to the service, Grant Paul. That translates into the impressive more than 500,000 a day. 

Jailbreakme's popularity stems from the fact that the tool is the first to support untethered jailbreak for the iPad 2, but it's also easiest and probably the most secure one out there. It uses a yet unpatched hole in Mobile Safari, so the user can load Cydia and set their device free, but Apple engineers are expected to fix this in upcoming updates to iOS as it not only allows jailbreaking, but could also be used for infecting your precious iDevice. PDF Patcher 2 however is a tool addressing that exact issue, so you can patch it up and be secure. Have you jailbroken your iOS gadget?
