A jailbreak for Apple TV 3 has not been released yet, so watch out as there is a fake site going around claiming to offer Seas0nPass jailbreak for Apple TV 3. On the site you will only find a rewritten old post from FireCore’s blog. There are some fake videos on YouTube as well, claiming to offer tutorials on how to jailbreak Apple TV 3 with Seas0nPass. Don’t get caught! Remember: Seas0nPass is a jailbreaking tool for Apple TV developed by FireCore and you can be sure that when Seas0nPass is updated to support Apple TV 3 jailbreak, FireCore will be the first to announce it on its blog.
FireCore‘s Seas0nPass has been just updated to provide an untethered jailbreak for Apple TV 2 running the latest 5.0.2 (iOS 5.1.1) firmware. Released yesterday, this minor software update for the 2nd and 3rd generation Apple TV only includes an Australia-specific issue with Parental Controls, no new features have been added.
Seas0nPass jailbreaking tool has been updated today to provide an untethered jailbreak for Apple TV 2 running the latest 5.0.1 (iOS 5.1.1) firmware. All of the most popular Apple TV plugins, like XBMC, Plex, Media Player, nitoTV, Rowmote, Last.fm, Couch Surfer and Weather are currently supported on 5.0.1 (Remote HD and Overflow are not yet working and require an author update for 5.0.1 compatibility). The new Apple TV 2 untethered jailbreak has been successfully tested by nitoTV.
UPDATE: It’s out! You can jailbreak your Apple TV 2 running the latest 5.0.1 firmware by following this tutorial.
Finally, we have some good news for you. Although there is still no sign of Apple TV 3 jailbreak, it seems that Apple TV 2 owners will soon be getting an untethered jailbreak for their black boxes updated to the latest Apple TV 5.0.1 firmware.
FireCore’s Seas0nPass has been updated to provide a tethered jailbreak for Apple TV 2 5.0.1 (iOS 5.1.1). Tethered jailbreak means that every time there is a need to reboot your Apple TV, you will have to connect it to a computer. Functionally, both tethered and untethered jailbreak are identical.
