The small group of people that wish to jailbreak their Apple TV are in luck as Seas0nPass was updated to work with the newest 5.2 software version of the Apple TV that came at the same time as iOS 6.1. Unfortunately, the jailbreak will only work with the second generation Apple TV set and anyone that has bought one after March 12th 2012 will not be supported.


1. Download SeasonPass and open it. Mac / Windows

2. Click create IPSW and wait for the program to download the firmware and patch it.

3. After created, plug your Apple TV in to your computer via usb and follow the steps presented to enter DFU mode.

4. Seas0nPass will automatically open iTunes and restore the TV to the modified IPSW.

5. Your device is jailbroken! Plug it into your TV and enjoy!

    Frigg’n 3rd gen Apple TV. Wouldn’t be surprised if the 3rd gen’s sales skyrocketed after a jailbreak for it.

    I just did this 3 times just to see if it works, nothing new, still same looks, no new options. I don’t think it jailbroke at all. It went thru all the motions but it still the same.
