iPad 2 Jailbreak Exploit By Comex Patched Via Apple

Comex has confirmed via a series of tweets that his userland jailbreak he showed off  few days ago has already been patched by Apple in the newly released iOS 4.3.1. Well, hackers lose the war against Apple again.




Comex on his Twitter account:
yeah, uh. I can find kernel exploits, but this is ridiculous.

As noticed by @0naj, my kernel exploit was fixed in 4.3.1.

I try not to be paranoid, but it is really hard to explain this as anything but a leak.

It stayed there from 4.0.2 through 4.3, but was magically found in time for 4.3.1. well, go go @MuscleNerd and @i0n1c I guess
Interestingly, and as Comex notes, "is that my 'new' kernel exploit is actually the kernel exploit used by JailbreakMe 2.0. It was never properly fixed."

Now the only hope is from the iPhone well known hacker Stefan Esser who is the only one having untethered exploit right now which jailbreaks all iOS devices on iOS 4.3.1 except iPad 2. Yes, MuscleNerd and Stefan must find more exploits to jailbreak the iPad 2. [Twitter: 1,2,3,4]
