Earlier this month, we reported that the Apple iPad 2 got jailbroken by iOS platform enthusiast hackers after three days of its availability in U.S. iPhone Dev Team's member MuscleNerd stated via his Twitter account that the jailbreak submitted by Stefan Esser (i0n1c on Twitter) is solid and is currently being beta tested for overall iOS 4.3.1 issues, if any.

Stefan Esser is the same guy who came out with an Antid0te tool to secure the jailbroken iOS devices more than three months ago. Apparently, he managed to discover the exploits in the iOS update for developing untethered jailbreak and passed on the same the iPhone Dev Team. The untethered jailbreak allows the iOS device to reboot without help of a Mac or a PC.

There were rumours about crazy stuff like the existence of an Apple spy who gets details of the iOS jailbreak exploits and passes it on to the company for fixing them. iPhone Dev Team rubbished such rumors and stated that they weren't the ones who leaked out the information about the exploits. To be honest, there's lot of drama going on around the hackers and jailbreak community.

As of now, there's no fixed date on when will the untethered iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch will arrive. It might take couple of weeks so hold on to your horses.
