With today’s firmware update for the latest Apple TV, we were warned to not update to preserve the existing untethered jailbreak. It didn’t take long, but @i0n1c passed on his untether exploit to the iPhone Dev Team, and updated tools have been released for a new jailbreak.
Update #2: Apple released a minor update to iOS 4.3 for AppleTV2G (the IPSW name still says 4.3, but the build version changed from 8F202 to 8F305). @i0n1c was once again able to quickly port his original 4.3.1 untether (the exploit that wouldnâ€™t die!) to this version.
If you do feel like updating to the â€œnewâ€ 4.3 (although there doesnâ€™t seem to be any good reason to), youâ€™ll need to drop this bundle into the correct folder in PwnageTool.app. If you donâ€™t know how to do that, there are lots of tutorials on the web, and weâ€™d be glad to help in the comments below.
Thanks once again, @i0n1c!
You don’t need to update your Apple TV 2G, unless you’re running into problems. But if you want to stay up to date and have a jailbroken Apple TV, you’ll have to follow the instructions of the Dev Team. Well done, i0n1c!
