Seas0nPass has been updated to support a tethered jailbreak of the new AppleTV 4.2 (iOS 4.3) software. Big thanks to @nitoTV, @DjayB6, @p0sixninja and @msft_guy for help getting everything together.

What's new in AppleTV 4.2? Should I update?

- AirPlay for apps and websites
- MLB.TV & NBA Game Time live streaming
- Netflix Dolby Digital 5.1
- Other minor improvements and fixes

If you choose to update to the new version you will lose your current jailbreak and aTV Flash (black) plugins. 

If the above features don't excite you the auto-update feature can be disabled through the Maintenance --> Settings menu.

Is aTV Flash (black) Beta3 compatible?

For the most part yes. However, you may see a few oddities with text entry screens in plugins like Couch Surfer and nitoTV. These are relatively minor issues and should be a quick fix.

Update 3/11: New 4.3 compatible versions of Couch Surfer and Last.fm are now available.

Additionally there are some hardware decoding issues present in XBMC which will take a bit more work to get right.

The updated version, and user guides can be found at Seas0nPass.com

Enjoy Smile

I own a Phillips HDTV which doesn't work with new ATV. Any word on an AirPlay for apps update on first generation ATV?

Submitted by Anon on March 10, 2011 - 8:52pm

i am really confused will it be tethered or fully jailbroken?

Thanks

Submitted by Anon on March 10, 2011 - 8:58pm

It will be tethered most likely. Because the exploit to make it untethered will probably be patched by apple

Submitted by Anon on March 10, 2011 - 9:01pm

I advise to wait to update. Firecore is not in the business of jailbreaking. If you want to use airplay without the 4.3 update, just jailbreak your idecice and install enable airplayer

Submitted by Anon on March 10, 2011 - 9:49pm

There is eyetv support in nito tv addons and (maybe xbmc also)

Submitted by Anon on March 10, 2011 - 11:10pm

Waiting for four months now, I give up, happy I didn't pay the beta.

Any Progress Update on NAS Streaming?

Since XBMC can't play .mp4/m4v movies with embedded tx3g subtitles, NAS support within XBMC is useless to me, so that's the main feauture I'm lookind forward to in aTV Flash!!

Is your AppleTV in DFU mode when attempting to restore the custom IPSW?

Submitted by james on March 11, 2011 - 7:24am

We've hit a few snags so it's taking us a bit longer to complete than anticipated - but it's definitely still coming.

Submitted by james on March 11, 2011 - 7:25am

This version is tethered. You can remain on iOS 4.2.1 and keep your untether if you prefer.

Submitted by Anon on March 11, 2011 - 7:29am

yes , it is in DFU mode

Submitted by italianstyle on March 11, 2011 - 9:08am

I upgraded ATV 2 to iOS 4.3 and noticed Time Zone in Settings discovers my location despite I connect ATV thru VPN router.

After some googling I found Apple may use core location to do this

is there way to prevent ATV to find real location ?

Submitted by Anon on March 11, 2011 - 12:50pm

This program sucks.
Spent all day Thursday trying to get this installed
User friendly you say, bull, only if you have a degree.
4.3 won't jailbreak using you recommendations.
Screwed up my Apple TV2 twice trying to install.
Had to go through long winded reset, but you wouldn't know anything about this because you never tried it on 4.3.
I guess now you will want me to spend several days trying many techniques as your guys try to figure out how to make it work on 4.3.
I should have known that any software that is sold and the guy selling it says you have to install pirating software to make it work is questionable.
Installation is a snap you say, snap what ? snap the door in half in frustration.
It's easier to pull your own teeth with tweezers.

To be honest I didn't expect a new updated version of SeasonPass to become released but an updated ATVFlash.I don't want to ride the same horse as all the other guys bothering you but with greenpoison is available already (for Win as well) you really should focus on ATVFlash. This is much more important... Keep on working as the software is highly appreciated...

I got the new AppleTV another ago and tried installing the beta 2 i think. i don't think it was this 3 and i did have a few issues with the tether part. it took a few hours but i did find out it does not work the way they said it does. i got it to work and did it a few times but i did not do it they way they say. at the moment i cant remember what i did but once i got it down it was easy and now the ATVflash on my Mac finds it over the wireless network and installs just fine.  I am going to reset the appletv back to out of the box and try this new one and after getting it to work i will come back here and let you all know how it worked for me and yes i am a certified Tech.

Submitted by james on March 11, 2011 - 1:45pm

If you're upgrading to iOS 4.3 please ensure you're running the latest Beta3 version. Beta2 won't be compatible with 4.3.

You can download the latest beta through the Downloads tab in your account.

Submitted by james on March 11, 2011 - 1:57pm

The NAS/codec streaming feature is taking a bit longer to complete than we originally planned, but we've made some excellent progress over the past two weeks. It looks like we may have something we can show off next week.

FWIW, the Seas0nPass team is entirely separate from the media player team so the work being done on Seas0nPass is not in anyway interfering or delaying the release of other features.

I apologize for any trouble you've experienced.

The most efficient way to get assistance would be to submit a support ticket here:

I love mi Apple tv 2 with aTV Flash, i withing for update, when?

Submitted by james on March 11, 2011 - 2:20pm

If you're seeing this message you will need to select the IPSW file manually in iTunes after entering DFU mode.

To do this, simply select the AppleTV in the left column in iTunes, hold down the 'Option' button and click the 'Restore' button. You will then be prompted to select the custom IPSW file which can be found in your Home folder.

Ability to play .m2ts files on ATV would be nice...

Submitted by Anon on March 12, 2011 - 11:39am

fixe the hosts file with:

74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com #realone
#127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com
#74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com #sydaone

DFU - Mode
itunes Restore+alt
selfmade 4.3 file
teathering mode
install atv flash black

DONE

but xbmc doesn't work as well:
- bitoverstream when activate dts or ac3 direct (4.2.1 worked! Pioneer LX73 Receiver!)
- *.mkv 720p files won't work (switches to main apple tv menu)

NEVER SHUTDOWN THE APPLETV, cause of teathering mode

-: please work on a nonteathering jailbreak and xbmc full implementation as we know from former ios :-

Submitted by john.bradshaw on March 12, 2011 - 12:26pm

When do you expect an unteatherd version to be made available?
