PwnageTool bundle to jailbreak 1st-Gen iPad on iOS 4.3.1 has been released by DjayB6 (@DjayB6). Just like other iOS 4.3.1 bundles, you can use this bundle and Ramdisk Fixer to patch PwnageTool 4.2 which can then create iOS 4.3.1 custom IPSW for your iPad. Although Cydia is fully working on iOS 4.3.1 but still it is a tethered jailbreak which require you to use TetheredBoot Utility to put your iPad into tethered mode on every restart.
