Apple TV 2G users, it’s time to rejoice. If you’re on the latest firmware 6.2.1 on your Apple TV, there is now a jailbreak available. This is a tethered jailbreak and has been developed by the FireCore team.
The Seas0nPass tool to jailbreak Apple TV 2G has been updated to work with the latest 6.2.1 firmware or iOS 7.1.2. The latest version 0.9.7 of Seas0nPass is a beta and supports OS X 10.11 El Capitan. However, it will only provide a tethered jailbreak as of now and is only available for Mac users.
Tethered jailbreak means that you’re going to have to connect your Apple TV 2 to your Mac every time it reboots. So, keep the rebooting to a minimum if you can.
Several users are yet to update to the latest 4th gen Apple TV that comes with a brand new remote and Siri. Therefore, this new jailbreak will be handy for those who are still very loyal to their Apple TV 2.
Here’s the full release notes for the updated Seas0nPass jailbreak tool for Apple TV2:
- This beta is available for Mac only.
- This version defaults to 5.3 (untethered) and you can install 6.2.1 (tethered) by right-clicking the Create IPSW button.
- The 6.2.1 jailbreak is tethered (for now) so please ensure you know what that means before using this.
