How To Jailbreak Apple TV
If you have an existing TV setup, then you can definitely make it better by getting an Apple TV. What makes the Apple TV great is the fact that you can actually do a lot of things with it. For instance you can use it to play movies, music, and videos from your iPad, iPhone via AirPlay. However, you can also browse through thousands of games and apps that can be easily accessed from the App Store. To access them directly from your TV though, you need to have a 4th generation Apple TV. Older generations support less features and you’ll generally be able to playback media and nothing more.
Over the holiday break, the team at FireCore released their long awaited flashing software, aTV Flash, giving Apple TVs everywhere the ability to stream local movies in any format, check the weather, and support for iPhone apps such as Remote HD.
However, if you jailbreak apple tv, then that’s a different story. After you’ve jailbroken your Apple TV, you can proceed to install a wide range of systems, services, and applications on it that make it a lot more appealing even than the latest Apple TV.
Here’s How to Jailbreak your Apple TV
At first you need to have the right model of Apple TV, once you’re ready for jailbreak. If you do, then jailbreaking it is very simple. For instance, if you have the first generation Apple TV, you can jailbreak it by using Rowmote. The second generation is also easy to jailbreak, but we’ll cover more about that below.
Step 1: In order to jailbreak your Apple TV, you’ll need to run over and download the latest copy of Seas0npass. Best to make sure no other iOS devices are plugged in at this point. We recommend you get the tools from the FireCore website.
Step 2: Once you get the tools, you have to follow the steps below:
- Unrar the software and copy it to your Applications folder.
- Get a micro USB cable and connect your Mac to your Apple TV.
- Launch the jailbreaking software and then click on Create IPSW.
- When prompted, you need to press the Menu and Play buttons on the Apple TV’s remote control. You should press the buttons simultaneously.
- Once the software does its thing, you need to click on Done.
Step 3: Install aTV Flash (black) and wait until it picks up your AppleTV 2G. This shouldn’t take long. Once it picks it up, let it install the software package and then proceed to restart. Once it boots back up, proceed into the ‘Manage Extras’ tab and install whichever apps you want.
