Seas0nPass apple tv 2 jailbreaking How to jailbreak Apple TV 2 on iOS 4.2.1 with Seas0nPassSeas0nPass is a new jailbreak tool designed by FireCore specifically and exclusively for the AppleTV 2 (no other iOS devices support). This magic piece of software allows you to jailbreak your atv2 with the latest 4.1.1 (iOS 4.2.1) software by creating custom AppleTV IPSW files and restoring them in iTunes (similar to the existing Pwnage Tool app).
