Nevertheless, as you can see in the video below, Comex has managed to get Cydia running on an iPad 2. It was only a matter of time before we saw Apple's latest device running iOS 4.3 without all the security. The hack, which Comex performed remotely, requires a brand new exploit since previous security flaws have been closed in iOS 4.3.
Here are a few relevant tweets in regards to Comex's achievement on Twitter:

@iphone_dev: Congrats to @comex for jailbreaking yet another brand new device (iPad2) while 2500 miles away from it!
would've had it yesterday if I didn't have to spend 1.5 days looking for a replacement exploit (which came from a most unexpected place...)
@GUnitJC No, it will take some work to package it into a jailbreak. Same deal as i0n1c.
Are you more or less likely to get an iPad 2 now that you have confirmation the jailbreak community is going to have your back for Apple's second-generation tablet?
