i0n1c has has made it. He managed to get and untethered jailbreak not even on iPad 2 but on the new iPad.
Yesterday we were informing you about Stefan Esser (aka i0n1c) working on a jailbreak for the new iOS 5 on iPhone 4S , iPad 2 and possibly the new iPad. He showed us some pics about an updated iPad 2 already jailbroken (We didn't know if it was tethered or untethered). Now he is going further and has released a video that shows us a new iPad with iOS 5.1 running and untethered jailbreak.
As for now, the code needed to perform it has not been released but we can expect it will be integrated in popular packages such as RedSn0w as habitual, soon.
