Comex, the man behind Spirit and JailbreakMe tool has just posted a photo of a jailbroken iPad 2 running iOS 4.3. It is still not known whether it is a tethered or untethered jailbreak but from the text at the bottom of Cydia, one can easily tell its a white Verizon iPad (iPad 2,3) running iOS 4.3 final on it.

According to another tweet by Comex, it took him 1.5 days to find another exploit, as his first exploit to jailbreak iOS 4.3 on iPad 2 was patched by Apple.
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...)
In reply to an unknown user, Comex added that it will take sometime to package the exploit into a jailbreak. Probably the final jailbreak package will be named JailbreakMe 3.0. Note that the video posted by Stefan Esser (@i0n1c) was a demo of iOS 4.3 jailbreak on 1st-Gen iPad. So, I will not be wrong to say that this is the first ever iPad 2 jailbroken on iOS 4.3.
Update#1: Comex has confirmed that this is not his own iPad 2 but he used @Chpwn's iPad to demo his jailbreak.
Update#2: @Chwpn has uploaded a video in which he demos the loading speed of Cydia on iPad 2. You can watch the video here.
