iPad 2 Jailbreak

Updated on July 7, 2011

iPad 2

To say Apple's iPad 2 is an easy tablet to review is somewhat of an understatement. The device, a follow up to last year's wildly successful (and currently market-defining) iPad, is nearly identical when it comes to software, and though improved, closely related on the hardware side as well. With a 9.7-inch, 1024 x 768 display, the general size and shape of the device has remained the same, and though inside there's a new dual core A5 CPU, more memory, and a pair of new cameras, most of the iPad 2's changes are cosmetic. Still, the previous tablet soared far above most of its competitors when it came to the quality of both the hardware (if not its raw specs) and its software selection -- something Apple still stands head and shoulders over its adversaries on. So this new model, a thinner, sleeker, faster variant of the original may not be breaking lots of new ground, but it's already at the front of the pack. But is the iPad 2 worth an upgrade for those that took the plunge on the first generation?

Both original iPad and iPad 2 have four physical switches, including a home button near the display that returns the user to the main menu, and three plastic physical switches on the sides: wake/sleep, volume up/down, and a third switch for either screen rotation lock or mute. The home button on the iPad 2 is "easier to double tap" than the previous generation of the iPad

Apple reduced the size of the iPad by eliminating the stamped sheet metal frame from the display, integrating new thinner glass technology for the touch screen overlay, and slightly reducing the space between the display and battery. The iPad 2's screen is thinner, lighter, and yet stronger than the original iPad's. The iPad 2 also supports screen mirroring via the digital AV adapter.

The iPad has a 25 watt-hour rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery that lasts 10 hours, like the original iPad. It is charged via USB or included 10-watt, 2-amp power adapter. The battery is 2.5 mm thick, 59% smaller than the original and has three cells instead of two. The improvements allowed the injection-molded plastic support frame to be omitted. The 10W USB power adapter provides 4x the power of a conventional USB port.

The revised tablet adds front- and rear-facing cameras, which allow FaceTime video calls with the iPhone 4, fourth-generation iPod Touch and Macintosh computers (running Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later with a webcam). The 0.3MP front camera shoots VGA-quality 30 fps video and VGA-quality still photos. The 0.7MP back camera can shoot 720p HD video at 30 fps and has a 5x digital zoom. Both shoot photo in a 4:3 fullscreen aspect ratio. The rear camera shoots video in 16:9 widescreen to match the 720p standard, although only the central 4:3 part of the recording is shown on the screen during recording. The forward facing camera shoots in 4:3.

The iPad 2 added a dual core Apple A5 processor that Apple claims doubles processing speed and has graphics processing that is up to nine times faster than the previous iPad.

Jailbreak

Comex released JailbreakMe 3.0 official yesterday, all the iPad 2 users are very happy. JailbreakMe 3.0 also supports iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1 and iPod Touch 3G/4G. This the most easiest jailbreak tool that’s the reason i-Device users are waiting for, it’s very simple step to jailbreak i-Device any buddy can jailbreak using our previous article instructions.

There are also single bug fou d on JailbreakMe 3.0 that is Camera connection kit does not supports iPad 2 after jailbreak using jaibreakMe 3.0. Users Complaint to Comex on twitter last day but Comex not get seriously and twits “Okay, there is a known issue with the Camera Connection Kit and JailbreakMe.”

After hearing from some popular people he feels that actually people facing that problem and twits after few minutes “…It makes me feel bad to ignore peoples’ emails, but last night I was sort of flooded with them.”

Few hours after he twits “See, I fail and broke it again with “Invalid Checksum”. Should be fixed in like five minutes.”.

This is bad news for that Users who using Camera Connection kit which is not working currently hope Comex will do something very soon.
