Apple TV 3 jailbreak iOS 5.1 - Chronic Dev Team

Apple TV
We just reported on the status of the Apple TV 2 and TV 3 jailbreak for Apple's latest Apple TV 5.0 ,IOS 5.1 firmware. As early as mid-March Musclenerd tweeted that the Apple TV 3 will be much harder to jailbreak than any other iOS 5.1 jailbreak. The problem is that the "attack surface" for exploits on the basis of the reduced functionality of much smaller you.

The Chronic Dev Team takes the issue now raised by Musclenerd out in his latest blog post in more detail:

I'm sure mostly everyone reading this article has probably heard MuscleNerds thought's on jailbreaking the Apple TV 3, I echo his sentiments. I believe he said the "attack surface" is much smaller, I could not have put it better. There is no built in default web browser, there are less services running, with no web browser and less services running there are fewer places to smoke / fuzz out a vulnerability. 

For instance, even if the AppleTV 3 was out before the iPad 2 and 4S were jailbroken with absinthe, it would not have been applicable, no breaking into mobile backup for part of the injection vector. I'm not saying the AppleTV 3 is hopeless, however, without an A5 bootrom exploit being found, each 3 AppleTV jailbreak after the first one happens will be an uphill battle. Nothing earth shattering here, wish I had better news on this front.

The Chronic Dev Team indicates that there is no such built-in browser on the Apple TV. In addition, work in the background fewer services than other IOS devices. There are thus fewer opportunities to find an exploit. But the Chronic Dev Team does not take all hopes. Anything is possible, it just gets harder.

At a bootrom exploit for Apple TV 3 can be due to the new A5 chips nor trust. By the limer4in exploit but at least the Apple TV 2 users can enjoy a tethered jailbreak for Apple TV 5.0 iOS 5.1.
