Update! Seas0nPass Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 4.3 (Rev 8F455)

by Ruben on August 21, 2011

Update! Seas0nPass has been updated to support an un-tethered jailbreak of the new AppleTV 4.3 (revision 8F455) software. Seas0nPass is the first jailbreak to support the new 4.3 version. Yes!

What shiny things you have by updating to AppleTV iOS 4.3?

  • iTunes TV Shows: Purchase your favorite TV shows directly from the iTunes Store, and watch the shows you already own, in HD.
  • Vimeo: Browse and play videos from Vimeo, access your video inbox, and mark videos you want to watch later.
  • You’ll need iOS 4.3 is also required to access Movie and TV Show rentals.

What happens to my jailbreak status and settings if I update to 4.3?

Well, you’ll lose all your jailbroken settings and installed goodies. Remember, you can disable the auto-update in the Maintenance->Settings menu.

Is aTV Flash (black) compatible?

But you can then re-run aTV Flash (black, Beta 6) installer after jailbreaking iOS 4.3 and  you’ll be automatically be updated to the latest and “awesomest” version. In addition to that, you can get a new version of Media Player (0.7.1) from our friends at FireCore.

What’s new in Media Player 0.7.1?

  • More subtitle types, options and support,
  • Folder cover art,
  • Improved streaming, DVD playing, buffering,
  • Lots of fixes.

You can get this new version from the Maintenance->Manage Extras menu.

You can get the latest version of  Seas0nPass and its ever handy user guides here.

  • I updated to iOS 4.3 (Rev 8F455) and it kept getting stuck at the apple logo so i restored it in itunes and then jailbroke it with the new Seasonpass. Works great!

    I spent 30 min figuring out if i jb’d or not.  turns out, i did it right the first time.  how can we tell if the jailbreak worked?  last time, there was a seas0npass tab.

  • Not really you would need to see if you can SSH into the appletv2 and then install NitoTV if successful then its jailbroken. If not then it failed.

    Did my JB in one time, perfect! didn’t see a special tab, so I installed aTV Flash (Black) also in 1 time 🙂 worked perfect for me!!

  • Omek

    So, how do you know if the jailbreak worked? The script completed perfectly. But, when I go to plug it into the TV, I have the same system. Isn’t it supposed to install NitoTV? And I read the installer readme for NitoTV and it says you first have to copy the folder to the AppleTV2. How exactly do you do that on a Mac?

  • I’ll try this hope it will work.

    You cant tell if you have jailbroken it. Only way is to see if you can ssh or install ATV flash. Im having nothing but problems JB’ing my ATV2 right now. Error after erroer 1600, 21, and what annoying is that all the ‘support’ and ‘fixes’ dont work – uuuurgh

    Here is Seas0npass 0.7.8 with Rev 8F455 not working. Seas0npass 0.7.7 with Rev 8F305 works fine.

  • Omek

    Never mind…I finally got it to work. Well, it was working the entire time, but I had to have it plugged into the TV and not the computer to install aTV flash.

  • HelpSeeker

    I have used Seas0nPass to jail break
    my new Gen 2 Apple TV. In the process it downloaded latest version of Apple TV


    After that I have used aTV Flash (black) and  I was able get maintenance menu installed successfully.
    From there I have installed new media player and XBMC.


    Since jail break, I have a major
    issues with photo slide shows. As soon as I go to slideshow setting menu, the
    system cash and hang. I had to do a power reset to start the Apple TV again. Apple
    has added new great slideshow themes from  v4.2. It worked perfectly before the jail


    Can anyone help please?

    After jailbreak, there is no seasonpass tab, don’t panic, just install firecore and after that, it’s all there.

  • Pedjab

    After Jailbreaking I don’t have movies and TV shows tab anymore  on the screen
