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?

I downloaded and installed the atvflash onto my apple tv 2 ( IOS 5.00 ) two
days ago . I am using the couch surfer and I am unable to view any videos
which must have the latest adobe flash player installed.

I have installed your latest version a TV Flash ( black) and I am aware about the information posted this on August 02, 2011 says

Couch Surfer unfortunately are not currently supported .Adobe Flash and MS Silverlight video.

As you it says " currently " since August 02, 2011 , I am not happy that this issue is not solved yet.

I already wrote this request to the fire core support , but I have not received an answer yet

So maybe someone knows how I can install Adobe Flash or an alternative flash player to run web video streaming

supported by Adobe Flash player?

I dare say a few people are unhappy that their apple products struggle with adobe flash but it's an apple problem, for not supporting it, and nothing to do with FireCore. Maybe your comments would be better directed at apple, but i'd leave out the fact that you've jailbroke your aTV, just to be on the safe side!

Did you buy an appletv2 or appletv3? This is only supported on appletv2 which isn't sold any longer

Will seas0npass completely restore ATV? Like, will it delete my photos that are synced in through iCloud?
