Apple tv 3 jailbreak status - Jailbreak ios 5.1.1 for Apple TV 2 - [iOS 6]

Apple tv 3 jailbreak
Published a few hours ago tweets by Kevin Bradley, better known as nitoTV, we take the opportunity to call a quick status update to Apple TV 3 and Apple TV 2 Jailbreak for anyone interested. Unfortunately, this is not really positive. Currently, no further exploits are found, an Apple TV 3 would allow Jailbreak. All Apple TV 2 owners can also only guess, to remain on iOS 5.0.2 or possibly to downgrade it.

Apple TV 2

If you own an Apple TV 2 can be, so you should definitely currently remain on iOS 5.0.2. This software version is signed for the Apple TV still and is untethered jailbreakbar. The situation is different with the latest software version 5.1 for iOS (iOS 6 adaptation for the Apple TV's). This is currently only jailbreakbar via redsn0w tethered. Furthermore, very few jailbreak tweaks work for iOS 5.1 for the Apple TV.

Note that we want to reason nitoTV's recent tweets every Apple TV 2 owners give again with along the way. A downgrade to iOS 5.0.2 with the Apple TV 2 is always possible and advisable since iOS 5.1 brings no new features.

Since iOS 5.1 is such a "senseless" update for the Apple TV 2, hackers are wasting no time to develop an untethered iOS 5.1 jailbreak. If you want to install the latest software update necessarily have to deal with the tethered jailbreak to be satisfied via redsn0w.

Apple TV 3

The iOS 5.0.2 untethered jailbreak iOS 5.1 jailbreak and tethered for the Apple TV 2 is made possible by the famous Limera1n bootrom exploit. The Apple TV 3 has, however, a new chipset, which Apple has the Limera1n exploit. For this reason, the Apple TV 3 is currently not jailbreak bar.

According nitoTV this is unfortunately still some time to come. The slimmed iOS firmware for Apple TV's can unfortunately only little "unassailable material" left over, so that user-level exploits are hard to find. But a bootrom exploit is currently not in view.

These two facts can nitoTV currently not name a release date. An ETA for Jailbreak Apple TV 3 is based on a random date. We can only hope that the developers will find useful gaps. The Fire Core Dev Team and nitoTV are however looking for such.
