Apple TV 2G SHAttered and jailbroken! [updated]
As this has only just be announced we still do not have a lot of information. There are also a few other members within the community working on jailbreaking the Apple TV. Chromic Dev Team member willstraf tweeted earlier today about the structure of the Apple TV OS.
As the Apply TV has only been released a few days ago this is still a very new area. We will keep you updated as soon as any more information becomes available.
UPDATE: 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). In the meantime, here’s a video showing root access (via ssh) into Apple’s new product.
