So you didn’t update your Apple TV 2 firmware to version 6.0 (iOS 7) when it came in September, hoping for a jailbreak for 5.3 software (iOS 6.1.4 – 10B809) to come sooner or later? The wait is finally over as an updated version of FireCore‘s Seas0nPass now allows for an untethered jailbreak of Apple TV 5.3 (Apple TV 2 only).
It is always nice to get more out of our hockey pucks called Apple TV. And that, too, without a jailbreak. Cherry on top. Making this possible is a hack claiming to bring Russian subscription service Unlimovie.tv to the Apple TV. Though this Russian movie service may not be of much relevance in other parts of the world, the discovery of such exploits can open doors to providers in other countries too.
Following the release of Apple TV software update 5.2.1 (iOS 6.1.3 – 10B329a), FireCore has updated Seas0nPass to provide a tethered jailbreak for Apple TV 2 running the latest firmware. Released in March, a minor Apple TV software update – 5.2.1 – added support for Music in the Cloud in Japan and Israel and included improvements for software update, subtitles, and general performance.
