    Post TUTORIAL - Jailbreak the AppleTV 2G with seas0npass

    Welcome to the iPadForums.net tutorial on jailbreaking the AppleTV 2G (black) using seas0npass from FireCore.

    Note: Yes, we know we are an iPad forum, but lots of our members (including me) have AppleTV's and this is as good a place as any to help folks with the process! Plus, I just have to jailbreak everything!
    Preparation

    Download the latest version of seas0npass from these FireCore links:
    OSX - http://files.firecore.com/SP/Seas0nPass.zip (you must have OSX 10.6 or later)
    Windows - http://files.firecore.com/SP/Seas0nPass-win.zip (you must use Windows XP or later)

    For the purposes of this tutorial we will be jailbreaking 4.4.4 which is untethered.

    1. Unzip the download and install / launch the seas0npass file on your PC:

    2. Press the "Create IPSW" button.
    seas0npass will then download the firmware file from the internet...

    3. Connect the AppleTV to your PC and put it into DFU Mode.
    Like any good jailbreak, you need to use DFU mode to update the device. With the Apple TV, the process is slightly different than other devices you may be used to putting into DFU mode such as the iPad or iPhone.
    Follow the instructions shown by seas0npass

    You simply unplug the AppleTV from your TV, and connect it to your PC using only the micro-USB (no external power supply), then hold MENU and PLAY/PAUSE together for 7 seconds.

    If you got it right, seas0npass should detect your AppleTV in DFU mode…


    4. Sit back and let seas0npass do the rest!
    seas0npass will create a custom firmware for your device and should then restore it for you using iTunes...


    Now all you have to do is wait for iTunes to finish restoring the firmware file.
    Done! Your AppleTV 2G is now jailbroken!

    If you connect your AppleTV back up to your TV you should see the telltale FireCore logo in the corner!


    What next? That's up to you, but stay tuned to the forums for some inspiration from me in the near future!

    Thank you for this tutorial, I had heard you could jailbreak Apple TV, just didn't have a clue how to do it. I just got the Apple TV at Xmas. But what are the advantages of Jailbreaking it?

    So far, XBMC, a media center that will play any file without conversion, and lots of 'plugins' which can play Hulu, bbc iplayer, tvcatchup (there's loads) and if you install atvflash black ($30) from firecore you can get web browsing, amongst other things.

    Thanks for the info addiosamigo. I don't know a lot about jailbreak in general and am trying to get my head around it all right now. But thanks for all that, its going into my notes.

    The apple tv jailbreak is really easy, the only hard thing was finding a cable that fitted!

    After that you download season pass from firecore connect the apple tv and then click create IPSW it takes care of the rest! The only issue you may have is getting the ATV into DFU mode, but if your a seasoned jailbreak pro like me your have no trouble! And even if you do you can download a program that will give you instructions how to put the ATV into DFU mode!

    Hmmm, maybe need to update my jailbreak on the AppleTV, I'm still on The original iOS from when I bought it, is 4.4.4 still the update being signed by Apple at this moment?

    Don't worry, it's now updated and Jailbroken, that's a lot easier than the last time on Greenpoison.....not as many pressing buttons and swapping cables.

    Ok, maybe I'm being dim here, but I have the FC logo in the bottom right hand side, but nothing else seems to have changed.....the last time I Jailbroke I had a Nitotv section where I could get XBMC from....what do I do next with the fire core version to get XBMC? And what do we mean the FC logo is temporary?

    Sorry if this is a stoooopid question.

    Finally found answer, using King Google!!

    If anyone else is using Windows and wants XBMC after the above jailbreak, follow this step by step tutorial on XBMC site

    Well, just spent the last 2 hours wiring my house up.......the AppleTV is now hard wired from PC, it's great now, if there was one thing that annoyed me about the device it was the buffering.....but not anymore!
    Can't wait for some more additions to this thread.
    Now that I've added Nitotv I have found that repo's can be added, so it looks like this could have as much depth as the iPad.
