Chronic Dev Team Working Hard To Bring iPad 2,4 Support To Absinthe

iPad 2

If you own a newer WiFi only iPad 2,4, you maybe a little bit disappointed. That is because the iPad 2,4 is one of the very few iOS 5.1.1 devices that cannot be jailbroken with the new Absinthe iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak tool.

Outside of the Apple TV 3, you are among some pretty lonely company.

Fortunately, it may change soon. During the initial release of Absinthe, the team of hackers stated that iPad 2,4 support was coming soon. Looks like that statement is holding true.

Recently, hacker, planetbeing, sent a tweet looking for iPad 2,4 owners to assist in making the jailbreak a reality:

Not surprisingly, within mintues, someone being @Sharkxp2003 (real name Alex) responded to the call of duty:

While it is highly doubtful that that many jailbreakers actually own an iPad 2,4, this is the revised version of the iPad 2 with lower power consumption due to a new chipset.

Do you own an iPad 2,4? What are your expectations witht he two hackers trying to help you?
