Firecore has released an updated version of Seas0nPass that includes an untethered jailbreak for the Apple TV 2 on iOS 4.2.1 (Apple TV 4.1.1). It’s Mac only for now (OSX 10.6 or later) but according to Firecore, Windows version is also being finalized with the untether and will be available soon. If you’ve already jailbroken with greenpois0n (RC 6 or RC 6.1) you do not need to re-jailbreak – both Seas0nPass and greenpois0n contain the same jailbreak components.

Seas0nPass is open source (the source code is available on Github) and is available for free.

Here are the instructions on how to use Seas0nPass to jailbreak the Apple TV 2:
