    Hey guys, I have an IPad 2 wifi version, 5.0.1 successfully jail broken thanks to absinth. I was wondering if I could also run the same thing to jailbreak my GFs 3G iPad 2? I remember reading that there wasn't a process yet for the 3G versions back when I did mine.

    You can use the same jailbreak. There's no difference between wifi/3G models when it comes to jailbreaking.
    You may have been reading something about unlocking and got confused.

    It will work fine.

    I jailbroke my Wifi only and then used the same jailbreak for my cousin's 3G iPad 2.

    No hiccups!

    I also have the same question. Since it's a 3G device, is it necessary to preserve the baseband (just like the iPhone 4) so it can be unlocked and use SIM card of non-AT&T carrier (including international carrier)?

    Just wanna make sure everything is ok before jailbreaking and become too late to revert, thanks again for all the help :)

    iPad 2s aren't locked to a carrier, so this is unnecessary.

    Correct. :). Only thing to be careful of is to (if necessary) be sure to download the correct 3G version of the IPSW. Don't use the same one as with your Wifi iPad.

    iPad 2 (and 3) cannot be jailbroken on 5.1. iPad 1 can have a tethered jailbreak on 5.1

    Your device is "not supported" because you MUST be on 5.0.1 or 5.0 to jailbreak it. If you're on 5.1, you're too late. You cannot downgrade an iPad 2 (or 3) from 5.1 to 5.0.1 either.
