The FireCore Dev-Team have recently updated their Seas0nPass Jailbreaking tool to support Jailbreaking the Apple TV iOS 5.0.2 (iOS 5.1.2 Build 9B830) firmware Untethered. Although an official changelog for the iOS 5.0.2 firmware is still not available, there is nothing holding you back from updating if you wish to do so. This is because Apple did not patch Pod2G’s untethered exploit used to Jailbreak the iOS 5.0.1 firmware. As such, in this how to guide you will learn how to Jailbreak your Apple TV 2G running iOS 5.0.2 Build 9B830 firmware Untethered using the Windows version of Seas0nPass.
Note #1: This is not the new 1080p Apple TV (Apple TV 3G) Jailbreak.
Note #2: If you are on the Mac OS X operating system please click here to follow the Mac OS X version.
Apple TV iOS 5.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak
Step 1) – The first thing you are going to need to do is download the latest version of Seas0nPass for Windows from our downloads section or from the direct download link below:
Download Seas0nPass for Windows (XP or later)
Step 2) – The next thing you will need to do is extract Seas0nPass (to the destination of your choice).
Step 3) – Once Seas0nPass is extracted you will need to right click on the Seas0nPass.exe file and click the Run as administrator option (if applicable).
Step 4) – When Seas0nPass has launched you will notice two options presented to you – Create IPSW and Boot Tethered. You will need to Hold down the shift key, click the Create IPSW Button and then select the firmware version your Apple TV 2G is currently running (should be the 5.0.2 firmware). If you do not have the Apple TV 5.0.2 firmware downloaded you can simply go ahead and click the Create IPSW button and it will be downloaded automatically.
Step 5) – Seas0nPass now will begin creating your Jailbroken IPSW.
Step 6) – Once SeasonPass has created the custom IPSW you will be prompt to connect your Apple TV 2G into your computer and put it into DFU mode (follow the on-board instructions). Once your Apple TV 2G is in DFU mode Seas0nPass will automatically open iTunes and start the restore process.
Your Apple TV 2G should now be Jailbroken Untethered on the 5.0.2 firmware. You can tell if the Jailbreak was successful by the temporary red FC logo that appears in place of the Settings icon.
You have just Jailbroken your Apple TV 2G Untethered running the iOS 5.0.2 (iOS 5.1.2 Build 9B206f) firmware with the Windows version of Seas0nPass. Congrats! If you have any questions leave them in the comments.
