Apple TV 3 jailbreak

iOS hacker pod2g has posted on his blog a list of tested devices for the upcoming 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak. While it’s still uncertain if Apple TV 2 will be supported in this jailbreak, pod2g has no doubts that the jailbreak won’t be compatible with the Apple TV 3.

In this way the hacker confirmed what he said on the blog earlier this week. pod2g said on Monday that we should expect the 5.1.x untethered jailbreak „in a couple of weeks“ and he added:

It will be compatible with any device running iOS 5.1.1 except iPod 3G, iPhone 3Gs and ATV3 (right now, may change in a near future, nobody knows).

    one thing I don’t understand is why can’t the jailbreak be incorporated directly in the ROM file itself.

  • Dooly999

    what rom?

  • Alatony

    why cant they create a device that connects to the apple 3 to jailbreak it. Im stuck with this piece of junk if it cant he hacked.

    I should have said IOS IPWS package.  I was thinking in the Android Terms (ROM)

  • Please can someone point be to a tutorial how i can use jailbreak ? I am bit of a tech noob

    No jailbreak for aTV3 yet! aTV2 is tethered, instruction is in the HOW-TO section on the right side of your screen

    i bought a apple tv 2 weeks ago is that classed as apple tv3???

  • peewee

    they’re both identical! Look at the specs if it’s capable of playing 1080p videos than it’s aTV 3. If the specs say 720p videos than it’s aTV 2.

  • Danny Kelly

    Thanks for the help mate, it says its capable of playing 1080 & 720 so im guessing its aTv3 so my next question is: is their a hack for that yet?
