The FireCore Dev-Team released an update for Seas0nPass yesterday that integrated Pod2G’s Untethered iOS 5.1.1 exploit to Jailbreak the Apple TV 2G Untethered on the iOS 5.0.1 (iOS 5.1.1 Build 9B206f) firmware. There is no support for the new 1080p Apple TV (Apple TV 3G), but the FireCore Dev-Team have mentioned they are actively looking into it.
Right now the only two plugins not working on the Apple TV iOS 5.0.1 (iOS 5.1.1 Build 9B206f) firmware is Overflow and Remote HD, so there is really no reason not to update your Apple TV and Jailbreak Untethered with this new version of Seas0nPass. As such, in this how to guide you will learn how to Jailbreak your Apple TV 2G running the iOS 5.0.1 (iOS 5.1.1 Build 9B206f) firmware Untethered with 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 double click the Seas0nPass.exe file.
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 5.0.1 firmware). If you do not have the Apple TV 5.0.1 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 5.0.1 firmware. You can tell if the Jailbreak was successful by the temporary red FC logo that appears in place of the Settings icon.
Congrats! You have just Jailbroken your Apple TV 2G Untethered running the iOS 5.0.1 (iOS 5.1.1 Build 9B206f) firmware with the Windows version of Seas0nPass. If you have any questions leave them in the comments.
