Is it possible to jailbreak an iPad 2 running iOS 5? Please let me know if it's possible. If so, how do I do it?

Currently, the answer is no. It is fairly widely known that the A5 is a fairly difficult nut to crack.


The 4.3.1 untether works on all devices that actually support 4.3.1 except for the iPad2:

  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad1
  • AppleTV 2G (PwnageTool only for now)

As for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, both devices run Apple’s new A5 processor, which is proving to be an absolute bitch to jailbreak. Only the iPad 2 can be jailbroken under iOS 4.3.3 using the userland JailBreakMe v3 exploit. If the iPad 2 is any example to go by, don’t expect the iPhone 4S to be jailbroken any time soon.
