Untethered iPad 3 Jailbreak Coming in a Couple of Weeks

I was a little nervous that I had jumped the gun by announcing that an iPad 3 jailbreak was coming soon, but I guess I was right. Pod2g has announced via his blog that iPad owners can "expect a release in a couple of weeks."

Pod2g is also finished testing the jailbreak on all the available iOS devices. This means that the next step should be a public release. The iOS hacker tweeted that the untethered jailbreak works on all three iPad models, the iPhone 4 and 4S. The iPod 3G, iPhone 3GS and ATV3 have been left out (UPDATE: See list of supported devices below).

Here is pod2g's latest jailbreak FAQ from his blog:

The poll about releasing now or waiting for 6.0 ended with a 64% / 33% to release ASAP. Where is the link ? ETA ? How much % done ? etc

As I said earlier in twitter, there’s still a lot to do to have a user friendly and well tested tool to install the jailbreak on end users devices. Expect a release in a couple of weeks.

Will it be compatible with my ?

It will be compatible with any device running iOS 5.1.1 except iPod 3G, iPhone 3Gs and ATV3 (right now, may change in a near future, nobody knows).

Why is it so slow to release now that the iPad 3,1 has been demoed ?

There are 16 different devices out there to work on and to test. It takes time.

May I be a beta tester?

No, sorry. Only really trusted people (that can be counted on one hand) could have access to the jailbreak. I don’t want any leak to happen.

What if I offer you 1,000,000$?

That doesn’t change a thing.
