Apple released minor software update for Apple TV 2 – labeled 4.2.2 – which generally fixes some audio and video playback issues (see the full list of changes below). The IPSW name is still 4.3, but the build version changed from 8F202 to 8F305. @i0n1c has already updated Apple TV 2 kernel for his original 4.3.1 untether. NitoTV confirmed that the new untether works “beautifully”.
Apple TV Software Update 4.2.2 features:
- Audio: addresses an issue in which audio is not output when playing some video content.
- Video playback: addresses an issue in which video is not displayed when playing some content.
In a tweet a few moments ago, MuscleNerd has confirmed that the exploit found by i0n1c will in fact work for the Apple TV 2G.
The jailbreak itself will be packaged up and come in the form of both an updated Redsn0w and Pwnage Tool.
If you’re anything like me, I can’t wait for the updated release of Redsn0w and the Pwnage Tool. No doubt, given time, tools like Seas0nPass and others will be updated to include the untethered exploit once it has been released.read more
Previously we posted that Greenpois0n RC6 had been released which provides an untethered jailbreak for the Apple TV 2G. The PwnageTool (an application for Mac users) has now been updated which allows users to jailbreak using a custom restore through iTunes.
Also, one huge advantage of using the PwnageTool is that it contains a fix for the wifi issues users have been having. Earlier today we also posted a tutorial on how to manually solve the wifi problems that users had encountered after jailbreaking using Greenpois0n, this version of the PwnageTool has this fix built into it.…read more
