Untethered Jailbreak Released for Apple TV 4.4.4

Although much of the spotlight for pod2g’s untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 has been on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, the same exploit can now be applied to the Apple TV running firmware 4.4.4 (iOS 5.0.1) using Seas0nPass. The jailbreaking tool has received an update today to allow for pod2g’s vulernability to be applied to the second-generation Apple TV running firmware 4.4.4.

According to Redmond Pie, jailbreaking the Apple TV allows you to install “many additional features and services such as BBC iPlayer, local weather services and purpose built Bluetooth stacks.” Seas0nPass is available for both Windows and Mac, and has a similar jailbreaking process to the iPhone Dev Team’s PwnageTool and redsn0w utilities.
