Sn0wbreeze, the popular jailbreak tool that lets Windows users jailbreak their iDevices will now be capable of jailbreaking an iPad running the upcoming iOS 4.2 platform. If you are not aware, Sn0wbreeze is the Windows jailbreak tool that is similar to the PwnageTool that works on Mac computers. The latest update makes use of the exploit that was unearthed by George Hotz; the popular jailbreaker who is known better as GeoHot, in his Limera1n exploit that was released as a jailbreak tool earlier this month. This is an untethered bootrom level jailbreak which means you don’t have to redo the jailbreak each time the iPad reboots.
But before you get excited, do note that we only have the confirmation of the rooting as of now and a public download is not out yet. In any case, most of you may not need it until the new iOS is out for public download. So expect a solution in place by then.
