New Bootrom Exploit to Jailbreak 4.3 iPad 2 [Confirmed]

By  at Monday, March 21, 2011  

Just a quick little heads-up, Comex, the well-know iPhone hacker, and the guy behind Spirit and JailbreakMe, has announced some good news for iPad 2 users, as we reported you earlier that Comex was able to jailbreak iPad 2 on iOS 4.3 with his upcoming userland jailbreak (JailbreakMe 3.0), today he  confirmed that there's new bootom exploit has been discovered by someone to jailbreak iPad 2 running iOS 4.3.
Someone asking Comex: is your new iPad 2 exploit in the boot rom? Or a userland exploit? Kinda curious. I am one of the lucky ones who landed one day one.
Comex replying: Userland, but I hear someone has a bootrom vulnerability that they might have exploited.
Comex didn't unveiled the hacker's name who found this new bootrom exploit. On the other hand you have to know that also Stefan Essar (iPhone hacker) also has confirmed that he will release his untethered iPad 2 jailbreak on iOS 4.3 by the next weekend.

It's highly expected that hacker behind this exploit will keep his bootrom exploit until iPhone 5 releases to make it effective for the longest period as much as they can, as this kind of exploits is only patched by a hardware upgrade. But the userland exploit is a software exploit which can be patched on any iOS update.
