Apple TV has been Jailbroken using Greenpois0n and Hacked to Inject Third Party Software
Well this is not a big surprise (at least not to me) but we all saw this coming! Remember when Geohot (a.k.a. George Hotz) shared his Limera1n exploit with Chronic Dev Team and iPhone Dev Team to use in the Greenpois0n Jailbreak tool?
Well it was put to a good use. The Apple TV 2 has been hacked to inject third party software via an unreleased version of Greenpois0n.
The limera1n exploit based GreenPois0n tool has finally jailbroken the 2nd-generation Apple TV. Members of Chronic Dev Team posted an image as a proof, showing a custom loader with a background on the Apple TV, running iOS 4.1.
If you are a Cydia developer; this will open a big opportunity for you to make apps, tweaks, games in the coming weeks and months! This will also give opportunity to me to crack all the .deb files and provide them to all of you guys free of charge in my tutorials and download articles.
The actual release date for this version of GreenPois0n with Apple TV support is unknown at this point so keep checking my site for updates on this new Apple TV Jailbreak
All I can tell you right now is this; after seeing what Chronic Dev Team and MuscleNerd did with the Greenpois0n tool in such short period of time it shouldn’t be too long before we can all jailbreak Apple TV with GreenPois0n.
P0sixninja posted the screenshot below and above to announced the accomplishment and said:
Credits go to @nitoTV, @dhowett, and @westbaer for the awesome AppleTV loader
I will keep you up to date with developments as they occur.
