Following on from my earlier post here is the latest post on that news site.

I'm starting to think there has been traction on the jailbreak

Here is the latest article (link removed)

The only nagging thing is that I'm not seeing this kind of detail anywhere else, be it forums or announcements, to get better confirmation to now if it true or not

can you stop spamming the forums with this crap! there is no jailbreak for aTV3, anybody who tells you otherwise is trying to sell you something.

I'd be glad if FireCore would like to sell me something. Especially an ATVflash for my AppleTV 3.

But guys and girls,

I really dont think it drives teh developers to go and do something about it, when all we do is naging them about it.

Rather then encourage them.

I got a question for the developers, is it the money you need to get this done, or is just because there arent a 100% trustworthy jailbreak out yet?

If it is the money then say so, because i think that we are plenty people out here, who just want this program Smile

Happy coding, and happy day to all!

IMHO FireCore relies on other people's work. They are not very creative but use public jailbreaks and mods for the ATV to create a package which simply installs out of the box.

Thus right now there is no ATVflash 3 as there is no jailbreak.

Money doesn't help right now but offering an impressive sum would encourage others to create a jailbreak.

Firecore have never made a secret of the fact that they do not develop jailbreaks, but merely try to package ones publicly made available elsewhere into Seasonpass which tries to make the jailbreak easier to use for the average user.

The software that is available and is exclusive to FireCore is their ATV Flash software.

  

Thus right now there is no ATflash 3 as there is no jailbreak.

Their have been various reports of people announcing a paid for jailbreak for the ATV3.   However until someone can confirm that one of these actually work then I would strongly suspect that these are merely scams trying to extort money from you.

If someone else provides a suitable jailbreak that is only sold commercially nI see no reason why FireCore would not be happy to announce the fact as it would mean that ATV Flash sales for the ATV3 could then be made available.

  

Money doesn't help right now but offering an impressive sum would encourage others to create a jailbreak.

I am not sure that those who develop jailbreaks are particularly motivated by this, but it could not hurt to try.

I AM A USER - NOT A FIRECORE EMPLOYEE

Along with a hardware refresh (from the A4 chip to the A5 chip) the Apple TV runs significantly less software than a regular iOS device.

Straight from the preverbial "horses mouth":

Im sure this has been mentioned somewhere on this post or elsewhere in the Firecore Fourm but have you tried using a tool called MP4Tools?  I now have (2) Apple TV 3's and have no desire to jailbreak anymore. MP4Tools (MAC only) enables me to demux/remux a selected (non-drm) video/movie without re-encoding the selected file. The output is MP4 with no qualiy loss, and same input size as the original file, and only takes 7 - 10 mins per file versus an hour to 2 hour re-encode. Once finished, I run it through Meta-Z (freeware), which puts all the metadata and required info in the file and the output is an M4V file. Meta-Z take approx 5 - 7 minutes per file. Upload that into iTunes and your result is an iTunes Compliant Video with all required info on it without having to re-encode a video. Now all my iDevices can see the video/moive library and play them. Now I dont worry when I update my Apple TV firmware wondering if there is a supported jailbreak for it anymore. And I also like the fact I can play my 1080p content with no cache or buffering issues I used to have with the Apple TV 2 since it is only 720p compliant. This is just an idea. No need to take this route if you want to wait on a jailbreak or seek and alternative piece of hardware. There was a little leg work demuxing/remuxing my library, but now I just maintain it and I have had NO issues since. http://www.emmgunn.com/mp4tools/mp4toolshome.html   Its only $5.99.    http://griff.github.io/metaz/   Free.  The windows alternative is MKVtoMP4 http://www.videohelp.com/tools/MkvToMp4

I own 2 ATV3 and had reencode alost 90% percent of my library to the itunes format (H264/AAC) from my previous m2ts format (H264/AC3).

I used xmediarecode to do this (freeware) as it can just copy the video and recode the audio (about 7min per films for a transcode).

So now I am not waiting anymore for an ATV3 jailbreak. If it comes one day I will have it (paid for it already because I owned ATV2s), but if not, I am OK with that
