Seas0nPass has been updated to support an un-tethered jailbreak of the new AppleTV 4.3 (8F455) software. A big thanks goes to comex for helping port the Saffron jailbreak to the AppleTV. For the uninitiated, Seas0nPass is the simplest jailbreaking tool available for the AppleTV, and the first to support the new 4.3 version.
What's new in AppleTV 4.3?
- iTunes TV Shows: Purchase your favorite TV shows directly from the iTunes Store, and watch the shows you already own, in HD.
- Vimeo: Browse and play videos from Vimeo, access your video inbox, and mark videos you want to watch later.
- 4.3 is also required to access Movie and TV Show rentals.
What happens to my jailbreak and settings if I choose to update?
If you choose to update you will lose your current installation of aTV Flash (black) and any related settings. If the above features don't excite you the auto-update feature can be disabled through the Maintenance --> Settings menu.
Is aTV Flash (black) compatible?
