New Seas0nPass Jailbreak Utility from FireCore for the Apple TV Jailbreak for 4.1.1 (iOS 4.2.1) – Tutorial and Download
FireCore has announced Seas0nPass, a new jailbreak tool designed specifically for the Apple TV.
This jailbreak is very easy to use and has a clean interface. Follow this tutorial and step by step images to get your Apple TV Jailbroken in a matter of minutes.
Seas0nPass was created exclusively for the AppleTV user, as previously no AppleTV specific jailbreak tools were available. Seas0nPass allows you to easily create custom AppleTV IPSW files and restore them in iTunes (similar to the existing Pwnage Tool app). Also included is a simple ‘tethered boot’ option which aids in using newer AppleTV firmwares when an ‘un-tethered’ jailbreak is not yet available.
What can I do with Seas0nPass?
● Jailbreak the AppleTV with the latest 4.1.1 (iOS 4.2.1) software.
● Easily perform a ‘tethered boot’ (when necessary).
Seas0nPass is available as a free download, see below for the tutorial on how to Jailbreak your Apple TV 2nd Gen / 2010
- Download and install the latest version of iTunes (check for updates through Software Update located in Apple menu).
- Download Seas0nPass
- A micro USB cable will be required to complete the jailbreak.
Using Seas0nPass to jailbreak the AppleTV
Step 1: Unzip the ‘Seas0nPass.zip’ file and launch Seas0nPass.
Step 2: If your AppleTV is not yet jailbroken, select ‘Create IPSW’. (if already jailbroken, and you just need to do a ‘tethered boot’ scroll down).
Step 3: The latest AppleTV software will be downloaded and used to create a custom ‘jailbroken’ software file.
Step 4: When prompted, connect your AppleTV using a micro-USB cable (leave power disconnected), and hold both the ‘MENU’ and ‘PLAY/PAUSE’ buttons for 7 seven seconds.
Step 5: iTunes will open automatically and start the restore process.
Step 6: iTunes will confirm the restore when complete – your AppleTV is now jailbroken. Please proceed to the ‘tethered boot’ section below.
Using Seas0nPass for a ‘tethered boot’
Some AppleTV software versions require a tethered boot. This means the AppleTV must be connected to a computer for a brief moment during startup.
Note: The AppleTV MUST be disconnected from the computer (for at least a brief moment) after restoring in iTunes for the tethered boot process below to work properly.
Step 1: Open Seas0nPass and select the ‘Boot Tethered’ option.
Step 2: When prompted, connect the AppleTV to your computer via USB. Wait for the rapid flashing light then connect the power. Once both are connected hold both the ‘MENU’ and ‘PLAY/PAUSE’ buttons for 7 seven seconds.
Step 3: Seas0n Pass will complete the tethered boot automatically. Once complete, remove the USB cable and connect the HDMI cable.
