I see http://www.jailbreakme.com/ is available for iPad 2 users to jailbreak. Also for other devices running 4.3. There are some issues for some who have jailbroken a device previously according to modmyi forums. This is a PDF exploit thru mobile Safari. Must have been a hole in that new JavaScript engine! I havent tried it myself as I only just have got up to date using pwnagetool this week.

I have tested this new Jailbreak on an iPhone 4 and can confirm it works well. Just installs the Cydia app and you're good to go. Much easier than the normal method.

I had problems when i did it.  Cydia app would always disappear before it finished loading.  I just did a system restore and tried again and it worked perfect.
Hopefully it won't take long to jailbreak ios 5 when it comes out as it has many new features.

I tried on my iPad 1 running 4.3.3 by going to the jailbreakme.com site via Safari and when I push on the "FREE" button nothing happens !!! Any ideas guys ?

iPad 1 can be jailbroken via redsn0w or Pwnagetool. Try one of those if a restore won't allow you to use Jailbreakme

I ran it as soon as I saw it was available on my iPhone 4.
Has been little laggy since, but no other issues.
