Jailbreak Apple TV 2G on iOS 6.x Now with Sn0wbreeze 2.9.8

Apple TV featured image

 

For all of those hardcore Apple TV fans (including myself!) will be pleased to hear, Sn0wbreeze, the Windows based jailbreak tool has also been updated to include an untethered jailbreak for the Apple TV 2G.

Most of the software like XBMC, aTV Flash (black), Plex, etc. is not yet compatible with Apple TV 5.1 – 5.2 and the device constantly crashes when attempting to install additional software from nitoTV, so things are not ideal at this stage! Hopefully the programs developers will soon provide and update for their software to provide compatibility for the lastest software.

If you are …

Evasi0n 1-click jailbreak is great, but how does it work!?

jailbreak

I first entered the jailbreak world back in 2010 when I purchased an iPhone3Gs with 3.1.2. At that time, jailbreaking had already been simplified quite a bit and was easy as cake compared to a 74-step jailbreak that came about in the early years of iOS. Nowadays, jailbreakers are spoiled with easy-to-use single click jailbreaks, where all of the difficult commands and exploits are neatly compiled into scripts that run in the background.

Because of this, it is easy to forget just how much work actually goes into these jailbreaks. Peter Morgan, Ryan Smith, Braden Thomas, and Josh Thomas from …

With the recent release of Evasi0n 1.0 for iOS6, literally hundreds of thousands of people are slamming the Cydia servers and repos right now, trying to get all their favorite jailbreak tweaks installed.

No evasi0n jailbreak release tonight, confirmed release date tomorrow February 4th

evad3rs

We have been patiently waiting all week for the release of the new iOS6 Evasi0n jailbreak, but it looks like we are going to have to wait one more day. It all started with a vague tweet from MuscleNerd who asked what the evad3rs team was planning for Super Bowl sunday. Rumors continued when someone noticed that all of the devices on the Evasi0n website had “3″ on the calendar app, leading people to believe that today, February 3rd, would be the release date.

Unfortunately, just moments ago, PlanetBeing tweeted that the jailbreak will definitely not be released today, but …

As you can see from the screenshot below, the Evasi0n jailbreak temporarily was showing 100% complete with download links for Linux, OSX and Windows seemingly available.

Did someone jump the gun or are they about to release the jailbreak? Stay tuned!

Time to save your iOS 6.1 SHSH

tu

It is very likely that we will be seeing the evasi0n iOS 6.1 jailbreak within the next 24 hours, because of that, we thought it would be important to remind you that, if you have not already done so, you should save the iOS 6.1 SHSH keys for all of your devices using TinyUmbrella 6.10.02a. Apple will certainly have a team on hand to reverse-engineer the evasi0n jailbreak so that they can quickly patch the exploits and release an updated iOS6 to block the jailbreak. This usually happens within a week or 2 of the release of the jailbreak so …

Evasi0n iOS6 jailbreak has entered the beta testing phase

evad3rs

With no definitive release date for the Evasi0n iOS6 jailbreak, I’m sure some of you, like me, have been refreshing the Evasi0n website for the past few days to watch the progress bar grow. Sometime this morning the bar reached 75% and entered the private beta stage that we discussed in our Evasi0n jailbreak announcement a few days ago. Yesterday, the site informed us that the tool had been completed for OSX and Windows, it appears as though the Linux version is still being worked on currently.

It is definitely looking more and more likely that we will be …

evad3rs

Throughout the years, we have seen a number of various dev teams, the members typically stay the same, but every so often they form under a new alias. Yesterday, pod2g took to Twitter to announce the formation of “the evad3rs,” a team consisting of respected iPhone developers @pimskeks, @planetbeing, @MuscleNerd and of course, pod2g himself. With this much talent collaborating, it can’t be long before we see an iOS6 jailbreak!
