apple tv 3 jailbreak There is still hope for Apple TV 3 jailbreak to become a reality

We knew there were people out there working on the jailbreak for Apple TV 3 but, honestly, we thought they had already given up. But it seems someone still believes it’s possible to jailbreak the third-generation Apple TV. Brad Smith, director of engineering at RadiumOne, spoke at AltWWDC last week about building apps for Apple TV, or rather “testing the waters on TV App development” so the devs are prepared for when it becomes mainstream. When he said that there is unfortunately no jailbreak available for ATV3, someone from the audience shouted “We are working on it!” (see the video below, minute 5:28). Has any of you, dear readers, attended this session? If anyone can help us identify the author of these words, please get it touch. We will also appreciate any info on anyone currently working on Apple TV 3 jailbreak.
