How To Jailbreak Apple TV 4.4.4 Untethered Using Seas0nPass – Guide
In the midst of iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, Apple TV (the box) hardly gets a mention. But nevertheless, there are quite a lot of things happening with the Apple TV box too. For instance, the untethered jailbreak.
Based on @pod2g’s exploit that Chronic Dev Team and iPhone Dev Team used to create the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1, Seas0npass lets you jailbreak your Apple TV box running firmware 4.4.4, untethered. There are quite a lot of benefits of a jailbreak – starting from letting you download and access, stuff like BBC iPlayer, Bluetooth stacks, local Weather services and much more. Let’s get started:
Things you’ll need:
Before you start, you’ll need to make sure you have these things with you:
- A Mac running OS X 10.6 or above OR a Windows PC with Win XP or above
- A microUSB cable
- An Apple TV (2nd Gen)
- Latest version of iTunes
- Seas0nPass software (Mac | Windows)
How to jailbreak Apple TV 4.4.4
Step 1: Download and install the latest version of the Seas0nPass (from the links above). Also, make sure you have the latest version of iTunes (or else, update / download as required).Do not connect the Apple TV yet.
Step 2: Launch Seas0nPass on your system. Two options will be shown – choose ‘Create IPSW’ from them.Step 3: The latest Apple TV firmware (4.4.4) will be automatically downloaded by Seas0nPass – and it will jailbreak that and create your custom IPSW. Step 4: The software will automatically prompt you to connect the Apple TV. Connect the device to your system via the microUSB. Do not switch on the Apple TV as yet (don’t connect the power cable).
Step 5: When the light on the Apple TV begins to flash rapidly, you will have to point the remote to the device – press and hold MENU and Play/Pause buttons simultaneously for seven seconds.Step 6: Once you’ve done that (don’t worry, you’ll also be guided by the software), the device will enter DFU mode – iTunes will open automatically and begin the restore process. The custom IPSW will be fed into the Apple TV.Step 7: Connect your Apple TV to your television after the entire process is up. You will see a small FC logo at the bottom-right-corner of the screen on the television – which confirms the jailbreak.www.appleiphoneapps.net
