Dev Team Jailbreak Apple TV Using SHAtter

Apple TV Review

Few days back, we had reported that the iPhone Dev Team had jailbroken iOS 4.1 firmware for Apple TV. This was even before Apple had started shipping the device. Apple had released the firmware a day before customers started receiving the new Apple TV.

iPhone Dev Team have confirmed that they’ve managed to successfully jailbreak Apple TV using the PwnageTool.

Dev Team announced this achievement on their blog:

It’s confirmed…SHAtter can trick Apple’s new AppleTV 2G into restoring to a pre-jailbroken IPSW from PwnageTool too!   Literally the only UI application on the ATV is Lowtide.app, but now the window is open for jailbroken apps of all varieties.  (Just like the early iPhone days, the only apps you’ll see on the AppleTV will be jailbroken ones).

You can checkout the video of the dev team getting root access to the new Apple TV:
