Nowadays everybody following jail breaking news excepts whether the new jail breaking tweak can jail break the new iPad or add something new to iOS 5.1. At this moment if you see a new jail break for Apple TV, you must be curious to know what it is about.
FireCore has released a new version of its seasonPass utility for Apple TV 2. The new version makes Apple TV 2 compatible with new software, which means that now your Apple TV 2 can be upgraded to the latest Apple TV firmware(the latest Apple TV was released with the new iPad).
The latest update for jail braking Apple TV 2 features a new interface and maintains its ability to jailbreak. It is the only tethered jail-break which means that you would need to connect the Apple TV 2 to a Mac or a PC any time you want to restart. However, the apple TV is rarely powered off, and this should not be a big deal.
Actually, the software update includes a bunch of new features for the Apple TV, for instance, the new icon-based user interface, support for iCloud movie playback and new screenshots.
The new version of seasonPass is not compatible with Apple TV 3. Not all jailbreak apps are compatible with the new software yet. Overflow, Plex, Remote HD, Rowmote, and XBMC are some of the apps which are currently listed as not working.
