iPad 2 gets jailbroken, public release looming closer

It was imminent! The iPad 2 might have been released three days ago, but a jailbreak has already been performed. A new exploit found by @comex allowed running Cydia on this brand new snow white iPad 2, confirming that it won't be long for freedom lovers to get out of Apple's strictly guarded ecosystem.

It's not yet available to the general jailbreaking public, but it shouldn't take long if we are to trust previous jailbreaking attempts. And to all of you used to the sometimes terrifyingly slow Cydia, you should be happy to see the fast reloading times of the store in the video linked below.

Of course it won't be! All they have to do is get a Xoom.

Yeah I love how they use the term "jailbroken." It's a very appropriate way to describe the experience of using stock iOS because it really feels like spending time in jail.

@Android fanbois
Seriously you guys as an android user myself you are embarrasing me (I have an Android phone motorola - droid). iOS has its merits and so does android. I am buying an iPad because it has the functionality that i need. In terms of apps on each OS (Andro v iOS) the iOS wins BY FAR. Android does have better accesibility to the user than the ipad. So the reason for buying iOS over android.... better apps and better performance and when jailbroken.... dare i say better than a XOOM?
