Apple TV 2 4.4.3 untethered jailbreak confirmed

by tomek on December 14, 2011

iOS hacker and Chronic Dev-Team member Pod2g has announced an untethered jailbreak for Apple TV 2 running 4.4.3. He didn’t give any ETA but he said he will be able to test it in some days (it appears that FireCore’d ship him an Apple TV 2 for testing), so everyone is expecting the jailbreak will be released very soon. We will keep you updated.

So far, the only way to jailbreak Apple TV 2 running 4.4.3 is a tethered jailbreak provided by FireCore’s Seas0nPass.

Earlier this week Pod2g announced the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod 3G and 4G running iOS 5.0.1.

    been waiting for awhile for this 🙂

  • Freestylegreek

    This is GRRRRRRREAT. I just started to jailbreak peoples ATV 2’s who run 4.3 so now if they have 4.4.3 I can jailbreak it and not have to deal with them.

  • hope to arive soon

    As soon as we get this wonderful news, we get some horrible news… 

  • Krazer

    I’ve just updated my ATV2 to version 4.4.4 (3330) – does anyone have any idea when there will be a untethered jailbreak out for this version, supporting XBMC and such?

    Does the 4.3 jailbreak by seas0npass work with this new 4.4.4 version?

    I’m kind of rookie on this topic, so sorry if I’m asking about something that seems obvious for some of you guys.

  • zero

    hey if i purchase a apple tv 2 at apple store now what version do you think it gonna be>?

  • Awesome! Who’s not waiting for this?

  • Anonymous

    No one knows WHEN exactly…but people are working hard on getting their jailbreaks up-to-date.

    The 4.3 jailbreak WILL NOT work with 4.4.4, but seas0npass does have a TETHERED jailbreak out for AppleTV version 4.4.4 — which means you’ll have to connect the device to your computer every time you reboot it — kind of a pain. But hey, it’s still a working jailbreak!

    Being an Apple Store — probably whatever the latest version is. BestBuy may be different….

  • Gijs

    I just have jailbroken mine Apple TV 2 with the tethered jailbreak. But it seems to be untethered. So I think the untethered jailbreak is fully working now!

  • Krazer

    Which software version was the ATV2 running? 4.3 or 4.4.4?
    There is a untethered jailbreak out for 4.3 already, but not for 4.4.4 yet.

  • Krazer

    Cheers mate.
    I guess I’ll wait until there is a untethered version available for 4.4.4 and then jailbreak it. Really can’t be assed to run with tethered versions – sorry I’m lazy 😉
    Thanks for the reply thou, made it clear for me what to do.

  • Anonymous

    Same here — I’m also waiting for the untethered jailbreak for 4.4.4.

    You should also know that seas0npass won’t always get the jailbreak first. You should do a Google search — other third-party companies may be the first ones to jailbreak 4.4.4.

  • Freestyle Greek

    If we have a software version that is not 4.4.2, 4.4.3 or 4.4.4 can’t we just downgrade to 4.3 and if so how we do it? I read some sites but not sure if it works 100%

  • Gijs

    I’m running 4.4.3. But in de article above they say that there is no unthethered jailbreak for 4.4.3. or am I’m wrong? 

  • Gijs

    Sorry you where right i’m running 4.3

  • Krazer

    Like for example? I don’t wan’t random stuff. Usually running seas0npass because it’s working and it’s well made.
    Don’t wan’t some buggy and crashing jailbreak version 🙂 Got others you can recommend?

  • Krazer

    The 4.4 version don’t have untethered jailbreaks yet.
    4.4.2, 4.4.3, 4.4.4 and so on.

    4.3 have untethered and is working.

  • Toreolav

    Any word on untethered jailbreak to appleTV 2gen 4.4.4??
    I will get my appleTV 2gen in the mail tomorrow 🙂

  • Synystersocal428

    Well seas0npass is the most consistent at providing jailbreaks for every version of ios released for the apple tv… However the original untethered jailbreak by greenpois0n was awesome and since pod2g( the guy who is about to release the untethered jailbreak for all iPhones iPods iPads on iOS 5) is a part of greenpois0n then it could be through there although after seas0npass would take the coding and apply it to theirs… Also sn0wbreeze occasionally will have one also…

  • What he said. The major players in the jailbreak world are Greenp0ison, seas0npass, and sn0wbreeze.

  • Erik Aaes

    Any release date information?

    I´m searching for one little string of information but can´t seem to find it anywhere.

    Do I have to jailbreak my iPhone 4s to be able to mirror/use it with a jailbroken AppleTV2 device?

  • Has anybody hasn’t done this? You sure have to set this on.

  • Jajabaseball

    No You dont, i can ,mirror my 4s fine without it jailbroken while my ATV2 is so dont worry about it

  • Tom

    Still nothing ? 

  • Segerberg

    According to @firecore twitter post today, unthetered JB is in the works and Will be avalible soon. Unthetered JB for other IOS devices has already been relased, exept the for the A5 (iPhone 4s & iPad 2)

  • Tobias Bovang

    Yeah, you can downgrade. You just hage to download the 4.3 ipsw and shift+click the “restore”-button in iTunes and it will work 🙂

  • Danirup

    Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 released yesterday via Redsnow. How About Firecore with support for this? any timeline or ideas? The software you sell is worthless without this tools … Not very commercial strategies … just my 2 cents … 😉 Happy new year to all the forum and ATV people 😉

  • Cybersun
