According to the Dev-Team, the Apple TV’s firmware can be decrypted using the SHAtter exploit that will be used in the upcoming greenpois0n jailbreak. This doesn’t necessarily mean the the Apple TV can be jailbroken, but it is a good step forward nonetheless. The firmware was uploaded to Apple’s servers to be used for recovery purposes, although the actual device itself hasn’t yet made its way into customers hands.
Those interested in *potential* AppleTV JBs, better to buy early! Remember iPhone3GS hardware was updated to fix JB hole
UPDATE #1: It’s looking like SHAtter is going to be the gift that keeps on giving. Even though the new AppleTV isn’t yet in people’s homes, the firmware is available on Apple’s normal public distribution servers and SHAtter has been used to decrypt its keys! The main filesystem (“Mojave8M89.K66OS”) key for 018-8609-066.dmg is:31c700a852f1877c88efc05bc5c63e8c7f081c4cb28d024ed7f9b0dbc98c7e1406e499c6If you’re familiar with vfdecrypt, you can use that key to decrypt the image and mount it. If you do so, feel free to use the comments section to discuss what you discover there (And of course, thanks @pod2g!)
