Happy New Year! Today we are happy to release an updated version of Seas0nPass that supports an untethered jailbreak of the latest 4.4.4 (iOS 5.0.1) AppleTV software. Big thanks goes to the world famous @pod2g for doing the lion's share of the work to make this new version possible.

What's new in AppleTV 4.4.4?

  • AirPlay Mirroring: Now with video mirroring – wirelessly stream what’s on your iPad 2 screen to your HDTV.
  • Photo Stream: View photos recently taken on your iOS device and pushed to your Photo Stream in iCloud.
  • Trailers: A whole new way to browse and view hundreds of the latest theatrical trailers.

  • Stability and performance: version 4.4.4 includes general performance and stability improvements, including a fix for an issue that displayed an error when playing some video content.

Note: If you're already running a tethered version of 4.4.4 you will need to re-jailbreak using Seas0nPass to take advantage of the new untethered version.

ok so I downloaded seas0npass installed it and "created" the ipsw. when it tries to unzip it gives me a decrypting ramdisk and at the same time a black boz opens up owngwtool or something like that then the decrypting ramdisk box closes then shortly after the blak box closes as well. what am i doing wrong? the next step shopuld be for me to connect the microusb to complete the jailbreak.....but im stuck here...

any help????

Any one else having problems with the Airplay Mirroring once jailbroken? Mirroring seems to work just fine on stock firmware, but once jailbroken, mirror works for a couple minutes then just refuses to work. Any ideas? Thanks.

Xbmc is now crashing, something is up?

Submitted by jody99 on January 20, 2012 - 2:18pm

Yea i think it has something to do with the megaupload site being terminated Frown :-( 

Submitted by Anon on January 21, 2012 - 1:23am

Jailbroke AppleTV successfully (again) and installed XBMC no problems! Awesome work guys.. thanks!

Submitted by Anon on January 21, 2012 - 3:28pm

yeah i'm noticing the XBMC will crash here and there.

but this untehtered JB is AWESOME!!! tytytytytytyty

Submitted by Anon on January 21, 2012 - 7:23pm

Hey so I ran the update and it went fine. I've been using this new JB and XBMC for a few days now and my ATv is stuck on the home screen. No matter what I do to reboot it via SSH, holding down MENU and (-) and even just unplugging it and plugging it back in, it wont respond.

Anyone know how I can get this to work?

Submitted by Anon on January 21, 2012 - 7:24pm

For the record it does start up fine, but once its in the home page its just stuck on "Movies>Top Movies" and it doesn't respond to the apple remote.

Submitted by Anon on January 21, 2012 - 7:29pm

Okay I'm kind of silly but I thought I'd share my solution.

Just unpair the remote then pair it again and it works:

UNPAIR:
hold MENU and (+) for 6 seconds
(the screen will show a funky icon in the upper left corner)

PAIR:
hold MENU and (-) for 6 seconds
(another funky icon will show in the upper left corner)

Now it should work... and man, I can't tell you how awesome it is to have this update UNtethered... I feel like a real person again. (I use my aTV everyday and when it poops out and I have to tether boot it, that really ruins the mood of the room)

thanks!

It sounds like the disk might be full.
try ..
df -k
if the /private/var directory is ~99%, then you have a problem.

Locate the big file directories by ...
#!/bin/sh
# Disk Utilization larger than a Gig.
du -h / |grep "G "

Note: the spaces after the G should a single TAB and not spaces.

Example Results:
2.0G /private/var/log
3.2G /private/var
3.2G /private
3.5G /

I have syslogd installed and does not properly rotate the syslog file.

FireCore folks, could you update/fix the script to work with 10.5.3 please ?

Hi there,

After following all available instructions, I cannot stop getting ERROR 11. For iphones, that's the error that you get if you don't remove the bbfw file, but on apple tv ipsw's that doesn't exist.

Any ideas?

same here. Frown

Submitted by Anon on February 3, 2012 - 3:46pm

we share the same experience Alberto, did you solve the issue getting past the screen showing an itunes and usb ?

Submitted by Anon on February 4, 2012 - 5:12am

I have a similar issue in that Airplay on ATV2 worked just fine before it was jailbroken - now Airplay doesn't seem to work at all. I will note that once jailbroken, units on wireless network have not worked well, that said, units plugged in (cat 5) seem to work fine.

Unsure what's causing it.

Two questions where does the backup backup too? and is there a way to make the fastforward and rewind jump 15 sec like what xbmc does. cuz the rewind/fast is painfully slow.

Submitted by Anon on February 10, 2012 - 7:54pm

ah yes, I've JB many ATV's and there are some "types" that just will not go into DFU mode BUT i did find a way, before you do anything JB related, plug it into the pc/mac and open iTunes, then do a normal restore, when it is almost done unplug it, (iTunes) might freak out but just quit it test it by plugging it in your tv, if you get an iTunes logo saying "this ATV is in DFU mode, please plug it into iTunes" or words to that effect, then you are ready, just follow all the steps that fire core give you and in the step it asks you to put the ATV in DFU mode then just plug it in and it will run by itself, good luck

Submitted by NickRutter on February 12, 2012 - 11:48am

That is part of the base OS. You need to input it in order to activate homesharing and (I think) AirPlay.

Disable the Auto update. Google "atv Disable update" and you'll find hos to do it.

I had previously JB my ATV2 with xbmc and flash black.  I wanted to clean it up a bit and so i restored it to factory setting.  It says i am running 4.4.4 (3330). I tried to JB it again, but it doesn't seem to be working.  I am using the same file i used last time.  Has there been a change in the apple softwear that would stop it from working? Anyone else with this issue?

I'm sorry to break it to you, but you will need to upgrade OSX ;)

I could be wrong, 10.5 is not supported by Apple anymore. Are you on PowerPC ? 

Submitted by Anon on February 29, 2012 - 4:05am

hi,

i see u made a little mistake. u wrote:
ssh -l 192.168.2.108

as stated in usage for ssh command -l option is for username. in this case "root". so the command shoud be:
ssh -l root 192.168.2.108
or
ssh root@192.168.2.108

Submitted by williams.2048 on February 29, 2012 - 4:52pm

Why is SSH not working on this jailbreak.  I can't load any extras. I am not the only one with the problem. FireCore what do we do?  Every time I try it comes up with "Connection refused". Seems to be a widespread problem. Doing the usual way of SSH,

ssh root@192.168.x.xx

but won't let me in. 

I am running lion and 4.4.4 on apple tv.

 

What is the solution????
