iPad 3 Jailbreak Confirmed for Friday?

UPDATE: The iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak has arrived. For iPad jailbreak instructions, click here.

The official Hack In The Box Twitter page seems to have confirmed that pod2g and Chronic Dev Team will announce their new jailbreak at a special event on Friday in Amsterdam. Part one of the event is listed on the official HITB agenda to start at 11:30am on May 25th. Part 2 of the event will begin at 1:30pm after a "lunch break." That's is around 7am EST in the US.

iPad 3 Jailbreak

Pod2g made a few tweets about the iPad 2 and iPad 3 prior to HITB's announcement:

OK just added iPad3,3 support to Absinthe thanks to @flawlessfox. Only remains iPad2,4 now but we need the actual device.

Any people of #HITB2012AMS has an iPad2,4? Model number: either MC954 or MC989. Please check in Settings / General / About”

It's unclear how long it will take the jailbreak to be released after the event, and at what time the actual announcement will be made. I'm assuming they will unveil Absinthe 2.0 near the end of the day. Here is the official jailbreak agenda for Thursday and Friday:

May 24th

11:30: Evolution of iPhone Baseband Unlocks — MuscleNerd (iPhone Dev Team)

May 25th

11:30: Part 1: Corona Jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 — Joshua Hill (@p0sixninja), Cyril (@pod2g), and Nikias Bassen (@pimskeks)

13:00: Part 2: Absinthe Jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 — Joshua Hill (p0sixninja), Cyril (@pod2g), David Wang (@planetbeing), and Nikias Bassen (@pimskeks)

While it looks pretty certain that an unthread iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak will be released this weekend, the event is titled iOS 5.0.1, not iOS 5.1.1. However, I'm pretty certain that the Dev Team has a "one more thing..." planned for the Hack In The Box conference.
