Jailbreaking the iPad 2—Is it Necessary?
As the Apple launch of the iOS 4.3 dawns on March 11, the iPad 2 will also hit the market. Many have asked if the iPad 2 will be jail-breakable and if it is really necessary, as well as how far the device can go once jailbroken. It might be early to know the path the second-generation iPad will take but it hasn’t stopped many from speculating.
As Apple releases the second generation in the iPad echelon, the iPad 2, it is obvious the device will have two cameras plus other useful and powerful features. Of course, if you are looking for a chance to use the iPad liberally, it must be jailbroken.
Proper multitasking is something that users of the iOS power have been earnestly praying for. The iPad 2 has increased power and real multitasking is something that might be reliably worked upon. Applications such as the Backgrounder can make use of the screen size of the iPad as well as fidelity and end up opening up the novel multitasking metaphors.
The iPad 2 has two cameras that might necessitate new possibilities. Apple is known for its strict App Store approach and interesting and new augmented applications could just make the iPad a window to the entire globe behind it. The Beta iOS 4.3 is known to have had multi-touch gestures added, that iPad’s OS could benefit from. However, Apple is not keen in availing it to the public when the iOS 4.3 is finally released and they just might with the iOS 5. However, for those who might find waiting hard, these could be enabled through iOS 4.3 jailbreaking.
The iPad 2 tablet has been redesigned immensely and this might mean Apple has fixed the jailbreak exploit. Nevertheless, if Limera1n will be enough as a solution for jailbreaking the tablet, it is important to remember the iOS 4.3 has already been jailbroken in the beta version. Thus, it is expected the iPad 2 will be jailbroken as fast as the jailbreaking tools have been updated to be able to accommodate the 4.3 iOS.Continued on the next page
