The developer of the popular JailbreakMe recently tweeted that he is actually running out of bugs to fix. He is expected to also come up with a brand new version of the jailbreak tool for iPad 2. He simply started his countdown for the release of the JailbreakMe 3.0 just recently. Since then, he has been constantly providing all the information about it. It was just last week when he revealed that he has lessened the time to jailbreak the iOS device by utilizing the unionfs style instead of the common stashing means that has been more common with tools of jailbreaking. He also hopes to use this in the future plans for iPad 2 in particular.
Just a couple of days back, he also made updates with his site that looks like the history of the source code for JailBreakMe on Github. This is a kind of web hosting service that has been active since August of 2010 along with a note which says: “It’s been far too long.”
The release of the new version of JailBreakMe is still uncertain but if you would be extra sensitive with the tweets of the developer, then you would have an idea that it might sooner than you think. It will support the iOS 4.2.1 and iOS 4.3.3. It is deemed to be made compatible with the rest of the devices which also includes iPad 2.

The very popular tool used for jailbreaking will soon expose a brand new version t jailbreak the iPad 2. What we are talking about here is Comex, which is the developer of JailbreakMe. They have even revealed lately that they have lessened the time to jailbreak an iOS device with the use of the unionfs method instead of the usual stashing means, common to most jailbreaking tools. However, the users of iPad who is interested with using JailbreakMe should be patient enough to wait some more time before they can get used to it.
Comex has even shared some information about how its performance will improve. With the usual stashing approach that the jailbreak has been utilizing for years now include the movement of a lot of huge directories from the small to the large partitions. This ensures that there are free space created right outside the directories. However, it also has its own issues with the process taking on forever before you can finally jailbreak it.
But with the unionfs, new files are created in the partitions so that there will no files to be moved there will be no descriptors that would remain invalidated. It also opens the opportunity to upgrade the base operating system without ruining the jailbreak files. What the developer is just working on too at present is to avoid the crashes that still get in the way of the code of the unionfs for it to be eventually fixed for the kernels of iPad 2.
