A few days ago we told you that Pod2G successfully Jailbroke all iOS devices including the iPhone 4S and the new iPad Untethered on the iOS 5.1.1 firmware. The only iOS device that was not currently Jailbroken was the new 1080p Apple TV (Apple TV 3G). This is because the surface area to exploit on the new 1080p Apple TV is much smaller than on the iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
Recently hacker Pod2G gave us on update on the matter, or rather a better explanation on why he has not been able to Jailbreak the Apple TV 3G in the form of a tweet. He mentioned that while his Jailbreak would indeed work with the new 1080p Apple TV, he has no way to inject the files needed to commence the Jailbreak procedure.
In order to inject the necessary files hacker Pod2G would need to find a vulnerability in the Apple TV 3G, which would allow him to inject code to change the course of execution of the Apple TV to accept the modified Jailbreak files. At this time Pod2G does not posses such a vulnerability, but in my opinion both Pod2G and the FireCore Dev-Team should be able to come up with a solution to finally Jailbreak the 1080p Apple TV. It is simply a matter of time…
