Newer Apple apps gone


So I used firecore and Seas0n pass. Am using kodi etc so I know all is working. It looks like many of the newer apple apps are gone? Showtime, history channel etc. almost as if I am using an old tvOS on my second gen Apple TV. How do I get the newer os?

Failed to upload exploit data


Hi there,

I'm trying to jailbreak ATV2 6.2.1 with Seas0nPass 0.9.8 (OSX Sierra), but I'm still getting error after I entered to DFU mode. There are 3 messages showing over and over again:

1. Preparing oversize
2. Resetting DFU
3. Failed to upload exploit data

I stuck there.

Does anybody know what it could be?

Thanks a lot in advance!

I have been trying for days to jailbreak an apple tv 2 but have had no luck. I am running OS X Sierra 10.12.1 and have also tried on Windows 7 but no luck. Am I missing something? I follow all of the directions but no go. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm getting an error

Process failed with reason: Filesystem patches failed

Anyone found a resolution to this? I can't seem to find anything on the forum. I'm running an ATV2 on 5.3 using 0.97

ATV 2 won't let me login with AppleID


Hello gentle people,

I have an ATV2 jailbroken with firmware V5.03, but it won't let me login with my appleid - it says that I need to create a new appleid and reverts back to the login prompt.

Had anyone else had this issue? I have tried searching the forum but could not find any discussion around this issue.
