If you are running iOS 5.0.1 (or if you update to iOS 5.0.1 through iTunes), you can use Absinthe to JailBreak your iPad 2. Go to and look for the "JailBreak iOS 5.0.1" table on the right of the page. Choose your download, and enjoy! It's really easy and intuitive to JailBreak with Absinthe. For further reference, you can always check out for the latest updates and info. Note that Absinthe is only for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1.

You can't. You can only jailbreak iPad 2 till 4.3.3. So your version isn't supported by any of the available jailbreak methods at this moment...

You should check out Absinthe on It's for JailBreaking Apple devices with A5 processors on iOS 5.0.1. It was released quite recently. – Andrew Larsson Feb 14 '12 at 4:18
Yes, I know, but you couldn't jailbreak an A5 based device on December 5th :) – Michiel Feb 14 '12 at 8:08
I totally forgot to check the date on the question/answer. My bad. There aren't enough JailBreaking questions on here. – Andrew Larsson Feb 14 '12 at 19:16
