Today we're happy to release an updated version of Seas0nPass (for Mac) that includes an untethered jailbreak for the AppleTV 4.1.1 (iOS 4.2.1) software. All credit for the untethered jailbreak process goes to the Chronic Dev Team.

Seas0nPass for Windows is also being finalized with the untether and will be available soon.

The latest Beta3 version of aTV Flash (black) is compatible with Seas0nPass, GreenPois0n and Pwnage Tool jailbreaks.

Note: If you've already jailbroken with GreenPois0n (RC 6.1) you do not need to re-jailbreak - both Seas0nPass and GreenPois0n contain the same jailbreak components.

The updated version, and user guides can be found at

Enjoy :-)

why do we need 3 jailbreak apps that all do the same thing?

Submitted by Anon on February 22, 2011 - 5:02pm

h2a why do you feel the need to comment on something if that is /all/ you have to say?

Submitted by Anon on February 22, 2011 - 5:25pm

H2a last time I looked we lived in a free world, choice and competition are always a good thing for the end user.

Since you want to edit.
I won't include the f word.
Firecore you can't be serious?
This is what you've been working on?

Submitted by Anon on February 22, 2011 - 6:55pm

Why do we need three posts that all say the same [meaningless] thing?

Submitted by Nuworld on February 22, 2011 - 7:31pm

Firecore why don't you just fess up and say your trying to play catch up with GreenPois0n and Pwnage.

At least they work the way they advertise it too.

Can't say that for season0npass for it is pointless software and is already outdated.

You all started this crap now finish it ya bums!!

Submitted by danielo.4387 on February 22, 2011 - 8:13pm

Come on Guys/Gals. Firecore is not in the business of JB-They are just providing another tool for us to use. One other thing to point out is one word--BETA


Let me repeat--BETA


If this was the final app I would be upset like the rest of you but it has been clearly pointed out that this is a BETA (theres that word again ;-) What does everyone expect--A miracle after only a few months of the ATV2 being out.


Cut Firecore a break--Thats my 3.14 cents

Submitted by Pytek on February 22, 2011 - 8:50pm

Seas0Pass (tethered) tool has been out long before Greenpois0n was ever released. Even though there are now other tools out there that can do the untethered jailbreak, it only makes common sense for them to complete the untethered jailbreak process on Seas0nPass.

Not everyone is as informed as some of us. A lot of people know nothing about Greenpois0n or Pwanage Tool and they will simply be expecting firecore to provide the jailbreak tool along with atv flash software. Should they offer these set of people an incomplete jailbreak tool? If they dont complete this untether on Seas0nPass people like you will still come around to complain.

So, it only makes sense for them to complete the untether on Seas0nPass that they started. Now that they have, they can move on to other things.


Submitted by Anon on February 22, 2011 - 9:01pm

I jailbroke, worked but when I reboot screen looks the same. When I also followed with tethered JB it said not necessary already jailbroken. Have I missed something?

Submitted by Anon on February 22, 2011 - 9:20pm

Kudos, great works guys, ignore the trolls.

At least I'm not posting as ANONYMOUS.

Sign up then make a valid post.

Submitted by Nuworld on February 22, 2011 - 9:38pm

What the hell are you talking about?

You think people can't read?

This shit has been going on for months.

Where the hell have you been.


Anyone in there right mind knows GOOGLE is your friend.

Do the research and learn something.

This is all old news.

This is not rocket science and just about any back yard hacker can crack this.

If you or anyone else can read you all would know i have already broken the code and made the Unteatherd JP on my own over a month ago, It was posted in this forum but just like a fart in the wind it was delted by of course, thanks firecore.

If you would spend a little time reading this forum and ALL threads you have have seen my post.


This was so easy to write the code and only took a few days to crack.

Like i said Google is your friend.

Do the research and you will find my JB for the ATV2g both for mac and windows.

Here is a hint to find it.



It speaks for it self.

Figure it out and maybe you might learn something.

If your just a mac/pc user and know nothing about coding then you have no room to talk.

BTW:Yes your right at some point.

Season0npass started this shit but GreenPois0n and Pwanage passed them up by a mile.

IMO: Season0npass will never get this to work for they have no idea what there doing.

In fact there has not been an update on github for almost a month now.

They do not want you to know they there doing

There just waiting for someone else to do the work for them and take credit for it.

I have been coding and hacking for over 30 years.

way back when there was only 386 and apple was only a thought.


Back at ya.

i don't know. i was the first post so if there was anything posted after me, complain to them.

Submitted by Anon on February 22, 2011 - 9:48pm

because thats the only question i have. i used this tool 2 weeks ago when it was called greenp0ison. i don't have any questions other than why there needs to be another one.

Submitted by Anon on February 22, 2011 - 9:49pm

choice and competition between free jailbreak tools that all use the same exact exploit? i mean, ATV Flash is pretty sweet. i just don't understand the need for the jailbreak tool.

Submitted by Anon on February 23, 2011 - 1:25am

Is there any tricks to get these jailbreaks working on an international (Australian) ATV? I get a Fail everytime!

Why should it matter if he is signed up to make a valid post?  You able to tell who it is if the offend you?

Submitted by Pytek on February 23, 2011 - 5:13am

You know man, I just love you.

Since you've got it all figured out, perhaps you could start your own software company and I would be happy to invest in you. Please post the link to your website and all your good works as well.

Oh, and there's one more bit of stuff we need on the appletv and I'm sure with your 30 years experience and a Phd in No Manners you can help us with that.

A lot of us would like to run 3rd party apps on the atv2g....I'm sure that is no big deal for you.

I dont know how to code, but do other great stuff with computers. So, currently I am waiting like the rest of the people.


Submitted by Anon on February 23, 2011 - 5:50am

Can I just run this to untether my current jailbreak that I used with seas0npass? Or will I have to do a fresh jailbreak (don't fancy resetting up xbmc so soon)

Submitted by james on February 23, 2011 - 6:46am

If you re-run Seas0nPass to jailbreak the AppleTV XBMC will need to be re-installed. You can try running GreenPois0n on top of your current setup to get the untether, as that should retain your current settings.

Submitted by james on February 23, 2011 - 6:47am

You can try a few of the tips here:

Submitted by james on February 23, 2011 - 6:48am

Jailbreaking alone won't provide any visual changes to the menu.

Once jailbroken, you can install aTV Flash (black).

Submitted by james on February 23, 2011 - 6:50am

It's definitely not the only thing - still much more to come.

Submitted by james on February 23, 2011 - 6:53am

Seas0nPass was created at a time when there was no jailbreak tool for the AppleTV.

Updating it with the 4.2.1 untether just made sense.

Seas0nPass is free, and always will be, and providing another choice is always good for the consumer.

Submitted by Anon on February 23, 2011 - 7:45am

I understand that it is easier for people that are not familiar with the jailbreak community, but seriously, time and effort could have been more focused on the core product. A simple link to the greenpois0n website, and instructions would have handled the people who dont know anything about jailbreaks. Seas0npass was not the first jb tool for apple tv 2g, redsnow was. Anyway, I appreciate your efforts on atv flash(black), but leave the jailbreaks to the people who are in the jailbreak biz...

Submitted by Anon on February 23, 2011 - 8:37am

Apple was selling computers about 10 years before the 386 was on the market. The Macintosh came out before the 386. Google is indeed your friend.

Submitted by al.066 on February 23, 2011 - 9:22am

Personally, I want them to continue working on both Seas0nPass and aTV Flash (black). I'm just waiting for them to release the new Seas0nPass for Windows now, since I can't run the Mac version (iMac G5 running Mac OS X v10.5).

Submitted by Tetsuia on February 23, 2011 - 2:09pm

anyone have experience, after a jb with GP rc6 from fresh itunes restore, seems everything working: injected cydia and nito tv installed, ssh works, but if you unplug power cord and relaunch ATV2 it show a black screen in the tv?? software will be loaded because on pressing the remote I hear sound from my tv.

I was unable to "killall" via ssh because I don't known if it was connect to wifi....unique chance reinstal again everything...and don't unplug power cord...

any suggestion? I try it 2 times also over a seasonpas thered jb 


Submitted by Anon on February 23, 2011 - 3:20pm

anyone having problems with the HDMI connection? ive loaded the jailbreak and used ATV flash black to install the maintenance package, and when i plug the apple tv in it will bounce back and forth between the home screen and nothing being plugged in (no signal on the samsung hd tv) when the menu pops up for a brief second i can see the maintenance column sos i know the jailbreak worked and i know that flash was installed but cant seem to get it to work properly. ive tried different HDMI cords. and the ATV was working fine prior to the upgrade. expect for the tether (tee hee).

Submitted by Anon on February 23, 2011 - 4:11pm

Wow, way to be a massive douchebag for no reason.

I am one of the many people who has been waiting for Seas0nPass to be updated to take advantage of the latest exploit for an untethered jailbreak, so I gratefully thank the team behind it. Seas0nPass is the easiest and most convenient jb tool I have come across, so I'm happy I dont need to bother with any of the others.

Submitted by robi666 on February 23, 2011 - 5:48pm

Nice, you had Seas0nPass updated, great news LOL

Now please, go back working at NAS streaming, cover art, metadata fetching, and full hardware video decoding as you promised to be ready for early February.

And, while you are at it, try to do it better than XBMC, which is free.

Submitted by Anon on February 23, 2011 - 9:27pm

It seems that the only stuff that makes it into the FireCore product is something someone else has done. We've never seen anything more than screenshots of alternate file support, NAS, etc. Are we waiting for someone else to develop those too?

I bought the product in December, because they claimed support for other file formats was imminent, in fact, the gist would lead one to believe, before New Years. Since then, we've seen stuff like this, and upgraded Couch Surfer take the stage, yet the main feature that most people seem to want continues to be ignored.

Yes, I'm sure someone will say it wasn't ignored, we've been working hard on it in the basement. If that's the case, then why not release a new beta with NAS and alternate file support in it? We know it'll be buggy, we expect it to be, and expect it to crash, just prove that the claims weren't all smoke & mirrors.

At this point, your approval rating is at an all time low, and I get the strong feeling that I've been screwed out of $20. Please, prove me wrong.

Getting Error 21 when the restore is almost done ...trying the new untethered jailbreak...anyone know whats it means ?

Submitted by Smurphy on February 24, 2011 - 6:21am



I have installed XBMC, and can mount smb-drives from my NAS.

Still I believe it would be better to be able to mount the AFP filesystem, however the smb already is nice.


Now -m if only apple could fox the stereo only bug it would be nice (means, I can't watch my movies in 5.1 after listening to a stereo audio source).

Submitted by Anon on February 24, 2011 - 9:42am

Is this verified? Can I just run GreenPois0n over my current tethered Seas0nPass jailbreak to get the untethered benefits? I am having the same problem as the OP. I have a tethered jailbreak but i don't want to have to re-set everything. And to top that, I just updated the Seas0nPass app, so i don't even have the option of tether booting it now (that function was disabled and I can't find the 0.6.9 version of the program anywhere). So I guess I have no choice but to try this way (running GreenPois0n over my current jailbreak). I hope it works, otherwise I have to set up XBMC all over again! Arg.

Submitted by Anon on February 24, 2011 - 1:26pm

i tried to run this, but it seems that is stuck forever downloading the ipsw from apple, is this normal ?

Submitted by Nuworld on February 24, 2011 - 6:25pm

I have been saying this for months.

This is why it is taking so long.

Firecore is just sitting back and waiting for the other guys to finish up.

Then Firecore will take credit for it.


It's all just a con to get your money.

There getting rich with your money and having others do the work for them.

Can you say fraud?



Submitted by roddamn on February 24, 2011 - 8:22pm

I'm with the Anonymous guy. I'm also missing the VIDEO TS feature.


But the thing that bugs me the most is the lack of VPN support. I want to put in my StrongVPN PPTP account in my AppleTV. All other complicated solution that have been posted around are just nonsense and useless. I WANT VPN, regular, simple.



Submitted by Anon on February 25, 2011 - 1:07am

Have to agree with some of the anonymousa comments, the NAS support/VOB playing is the key thing for many people, its too slow coming and not a wisper for weeks of that development. I'm feeling conned as well. How do I get my $20 back?

Submitted by mrfixsimmons on February 25, 2011 - 8:04am


After using the new untethered season pass and atv flash black (which I love by the way), should I still save the shsh blobs just in case? Tiny Umbrella doesnt seem to be working. Any thoughts on this? Let me know. Thanks.

Submitted by doctauri on February 25, 2011 - 3:46pm

I prefer the AppleTV, but Boxee Box is looking better every day.

Agreed.  I have never downloaded thus never installed ATV Flash (black), though I bought it before Christmas.  Always waiting for that NAS and file support that seems to be "just around the corner".  I have no confidence it's coming anytime soon.

Officially requesting explaination of the process to receive refund.

It's still under heavy development, just taking a bit longer to get a few things right.

Guys ITS A BETA! , which means you have to put up with things like this.. Its quite clear on the web site its a BETA , so stop complaining..  and let the guys get on with it..
So BETA software means BETA not fully working and not bug free ... :)

No, at this point it's vaporware.

Still waiting for someone to tell me how to get my refund.

Submitted by Anon on February 26, 2011 - 9:39am

hi, same anonymous person. i wanted to come back and report that running GreenPois0n over my current tethered Seas0nPass jailbreak to get an untethered affect did NOT work. it just made it more frozen than it already was without having a tethered boot. maybe it would have worked if i hadn't updated the Seas0nPass program and could have tether booted it one more time? I had to just restore my appletv and do a fresh new Seas0nPass untethered jailbreak. oh well, at least I won't have to worry about plugging it in anymore to restart the appletv.

Submitted by Anon on February 26, 2011 - 12:39pm

All I know is I'm looking forward to Beta215. As long it's a beta I really can't complain can I?
