JailbreakMe is back with version 3.0, and if you've been wanting to jailbreak your iPad 2, now's your chance. If you're unfamiliar, JailbreakMe is a super-easy way of jailbreaking your iOS devices. All you need to do is head to jailbreakme.com and follow the simple instructions, and a minute later you'll be able to customize, theme, tweak, and install any iOS software that you please. The only trick here is that you can't be running the iOS 5 beta. Other than that, you're clear to go ahead and make it happen.
So you know that JailbreakMe site that let’s you jailbreak your iOS device? Well, Apple published an iPhone and iPad update today to plug that hole, and right after, iPhone hacker “comex” published the source code of the JailbreakMe site. Why is this relevant? Well, now any would-be evildoer has access to that exploit and can thusly infect any pre-iOS 4.0.2 device using the same exploit. So you have two options here if you want to stay safe. You can update to 4.0.2, or if you want to stay jailbroken, download the PDF Warning tool. One interesting thing in all this is that if you are running the original iPhone or iPod touch, Apple doesn’t have a fix for you. So you are essentially stuck with a vulnerable device unless you jailbreak it. How’s that for backwards?
