The version brings a tethered jailbreak to Appple TV 2 5.0 (iOS 5.1). And there are several plugins are working and the rest not working with this release. And currently Seas0nPass 0.8.3 tethered Jb is unable to jailbreak the Apple TV 3 yet.
And in this post I would like to share the step by step guide to jailbreak Apple Tv 2G on 5.0 (iOS 5.1) with Seas0nPass 0.8.3. And follow the following guide.
Things you need before jailbreaking:
- iTunes -- download and install it.
- Download SeasonPass 0.8.3 for Windows and Mac 0S.X.
- A micro USB cable.
- Unplug your iOS devices from your computer.
Step 1: Launch Seas0nPass by clicking its icon -- after you've download it and unzip it.
Step 2: Click on CREATE IPSW from the screen.
Step 3: AppleTv software is downloaded now by Seas0nPass to be used in creating a custom Jailbreak software file.
Step 4: After Seas0nPass finished creating a custom iPSW file, you are prompted to connect your device to your computer and put it into DFU mode by following the on screen instructions.
Step 5: After your device in DFU mode, SeasonPass will open iTunes to start restoring.
When iTunes finished restoring, you will now have a jailbroken AppleTV 2g. So it's time to tethered boot it.
