Seas0nPass Untethered Jailbreak for AppleTV 2G running latest iOS 5.0.1 (iOS 5.1.1 – 9B206f)
The great people over at FireCore have released a new version of their popular jailbreaking tool, Seas0nPass. The latest release of their software will perform an untethered jailbreak on the latest AppleTV 2G build iOS 5.0.1(iOS 5.1.1 – 9B206f). Unfortunately there is still no solution for jailbreaking the AppleTV 3G, but we expect that the developers are working hard on it right now.
- Latest version of iTunes.
- Latest version of Seas0nPass (use links above).
- A micro USB cable.
- Disconnect any iPods, iPhones, and iPads from your computer.
Using Seas0nPass to jailbreak the Apple TV
Step 1: Unzip the ‘Seas0nPass.zip’ file and launch Seas0nPass.
Step 2: Select the ‘Create IPSW’ button to start the jailbreak process.
Step 3: The latest Apple TV software will be downloaded and used to create a custom ‘jailbroken’ software file.
Step 4: When prompted, connect your Apple TV to your Mac/PC using a micro-USB cable (leave power cable disconnected).
Once the light on the front of the Apple TV begins to flash rapidly, point the remote at the Apple TV and hold both the MENU and PLAY/PAUSE buttons for 7 seven seconds.
Note: This step will require the silver (aluminum) Apple TV remote that was included with the ATV2. The older, white (plastic) remotes will not work.
Step 5: iTunes will open automatically and start the restore process.
Step 6: iTunes will confirm the restore when complete – your Apple TV is now jailbroken!
Note: To confirm the jailbreak was successful a (temporary) red FC logo will appear in place of the Settings icon – as shown below.
