Today we're proud to introduce 'Seas0nPass' - a new jailbreak tool designed specifically for the AppleTV.
Seas0nPass was created exclusively for the AppleTV user, as previously no AppleTV specific jailbreak tools were available. Seas0nPass allows you to easily create custom AppleTV IPSW files and restore them in iTunes (similar to the existing Pwnage Tool app). Also included is a simple 'tethered boot' option which aids in using newer AppleTV firmwares when an 'un-tethered' jailbreak is not yet available.
Seas0nPass is available for free, and is open source. The source code is available on Github.
What can I do with Seas0nPass?
- Jailbreak the AppleTV with the latest 4.1.1 (iOS 4.2.1) software.
- Easily perform a 'tethered boot' (when necessary).
What is the difference between a 'tethered' and 'un-tethered' jailbreak?
A tethered jailbreak requires the AppleTV to be connected to a computer for a brief moment during startup. An un-tethered jailbreak removes this restriction. Un-tethered jailbreaks are are a bit more complex and take more time to complete.
How much does Seas0nPass cost?
Seas0nPass is available as a free download - no strings attached.
What are the minimum requirements?
Mac: OSX 10.6 or later
Windows: coming soon
Can I use this on my iPhone, iPad, or other iOS device?
Nope. Seas0nPass is designed exclusively for the 2nd gen AppleTV.
Sounds great! Where can I download it?
