Why isn't Redsn0w listed on MU? It seems to be the replacement for Pwnagetool, and also does what Seas0nPass does, latest version is here: https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-dev.com/files/home/

I've now used Seas0nPass twice. Once to jailbreak 5.0.2 using Mac OS X 10.5 on my eMac and now to jailbreak 5.3 using Windows 8.1. Both times it worked fine. My only quibble is that you do need to have a guide open at the same time since it's not entirely clear what's happening at each step. As for the post by someone else this month--on Windows 8.1 (at least) it worked just fine for me this time and my recollections of the process on the eMac were that they were painfully slow (of course, the eMac was probably 20 to 40 times slower than my i5 2.9 GHz Hackintosh/Windows machine ;-).

used to work in the past. But with this version I always get an Error at the End: "Process failed with reason: Filesystem patches failed!!" I deleted cache files - forced it to re-download the ipsw file - but always the same negative result. Now I logged in as an Admin on my Mac (OS X 10.6.8) and the installer hangs when it says it is unzipping the ipsw file. takes forever and does nothing! This piece of crap is broken. BTW, check their blog > release announcement and you will find other people with problems. They invest time in their iOS App "Infuse" and don't really care about hacking that old Apple TV 2nd Gen. (sad but true).

MacUpdate should update the system requirements of this revision. As mentioned by the previous poster, Seas0nPass no longer works with anything less than Mountain Lion 10.8. So, forget about using Snow Leopard and Lion. Boot Camp and Windows XP on older Macs with the latest Win version of Seas0nPass jailbreaks successfully.

I have two Apple TV2 units. I downloaded this within hours of its appearance. It installed flawlessly, the first time, on both Apple TVs. (Previously, older editions would install on one but never the other.) I used the USB cable that came with my Harmony 650 remote, FWIW. XBMC, at least as of May 25, 2012, would install via apt-get from the repositories, but did not display in the interface. A bit of googling turned up a patched deb package that could be installed with dpkg -i, so now I have xbmc. I haven't had this version going long enough to detect stability problems, but previously, this would cause ATV2 to freeze up about once per week, requiring a reboot. It got to be a significant annoyance. It helps to be able to use the command-line to ssh into the box directly, install wget, and download things like xbmc add-ons directly to the box. Overall, considering what this is, and what you pay for it (it is free), it is a remarkable achievement. If you don't sort of enjoy software tinkering, however, this probably isn't going to impress you much. The modifications you can install are still quite limited. (I tried installing a VNC server. Although it works, it is so impossibly unresponsive, even with only 256 colors, that I decided to remove it. That's too bad, because I would really like a way to control my ATV2 from my laptop (one of mine is for music, and runs screen less).)

Since you seem fairly familiar with Unix...I wonder if you might be able to run an Xvnc server on the thing to run xbmc under. (For the one that's primarily for music, at least, since you wouldn't have a physical screen for xbmc. Although the physically screen should still work for normal Apple TV stuff! Probably wouldn't have the resources to do both, though.) You should be able to run at something like 640x480, and perhaps have it be more responsive...

I have tried this software on 3 or 4 different occasions - each and every time has been a painful exercise in frustration. Not once have I been able to successfully complete the jailbreak process. After 3 attempts, all with different error message results - the last one being the most frustrating - the software it has just downloaded and patched was incompatible with the device - I have resorted to using other software to get the job done. I'm not a novice, I know my way around Macs & Apple products and have jailbroken a number of devices over the years without issue - except for when attempting with this software. I won't be wasting my time with this rubbish again.

What errors did you get? This does not work with the most recent 3rd Gen ATV currently...

@Libertyforall1776 - it's almost a case of 'what errors haven't I gotten!' - it's absolutely crazy. Both units are AppleTV 2 - alternating between the 2 of them I have had incompatible device..., restore failed (no reason), -1600, -21. I hadn't realised that Absinthe wasn't yet working with AppleTV or I would not have bothered. In sheer frustration at the hours of lost time, I had one more shot and successfully jail broke 1 unit - the other would not - 3 attempts before I gave up in disgust. I tried different things that others had suggested - but in reality I have to question some of the suggestions such as cable - I have used this cable to jailbreak without incident using other software. I have encountered issues with this software each and every time I have used it - that tells me the weak link is more likely to be the software. This is further reinforced by the volume of similar comments a simple web search brings up. I'm glad it has worked flawlessly for others - I simply do not have time to waste playing russian roulette - as annoying as it is, the other AppleTV will wait to be jailbroken when a more reliable software utility is available.

Really not working at all. Why is it so hard for a hacker to understand that i don't have time te keep trying for 2 DAYS !!! and still not have a successfull Jailbreak. when Apple's iTunes installs new firmware it does NOT stop, it installs it, then reboots. Why the hell then do i need to try all kinds of crap because just with the micro-usb cable (A NEW!!! MICRO USB CABLE) it will NOT do the job ? It's utter BS. It is a fact. GO BACk AND TRY IT AGAIN !!!! Maybe when you understand a user's frustration about this you can make something that works his time.

Why don't you stick with the official apple firmware then? Nobody's forcing you to use the jailbreak.

It is hardly the Developer's responsibility to ensure that every micro-usb cable works with an Apple TV. Not all cables are made the same and do not provide the same results. Perhaps the one you bought, new or not, was never designed to carry data. If you bought a new one and it failed to provide what you expected then return it. I realize it doesn't help you much but the one that worked for me was from a Bluetooth Jabra hands-free unit while one I bought at a local store did not.

Your problems are certainly related to the cable. I had to try 2 or 3 different cables to find one that did the job. BTW, the developer is obviously not to blame for this...

But the cable DOES WORK when iTunes does teh firmware update. So why is the Jailbreak failing on that same cable ? Either the cable works or it doesn't. Does it matter how it is used for that ? i think not. That Seasonpass fails because of the cable is clearly to do with the program itself, nothing to do with the cable.

Btw, the smae cable did work on a Mac Pro, after trying for 5 hours !!! But on my Mini it just will not. And don't tell me it's a power issue, because iTunes on my mac mini can and will install the official firmware, in one go. Hackes clearly deliver sub-standard software.

Hmm, you do realize that these jailbreaks are released for FREE. The developer owes you nothing, and simply doing this for the betterment of the Apple community. Jailbreaks are not designed for the average user, the entire idea behind a jailbreak is that you are hacking your product and using it for something that it was not originally designed to do. If you are not capability or unwilling to take the time associated with such a procedure it is hardly the developers fault. For the record, I jailbroke my AppleTV with seas0npass and had zero problems, it worked perfectly.

Finally untethered again! ;) Worked like a charm, although it does not seem to enable Nito TV by default, like previous versions, which should be an option -- although still not hard to do, but maybe confusing for newbies. :(

Application works on AppleTV as described. Installation video is somewhat helpful, but on a Mac forum it might have been more appropriate to run the tethered boot install on a Mac as opposed to a PC. One word of caution on the current version (0.7.9). Losing power to the AppleTV for any reason will necessate a re-jailbreaking if you chose the tether boot process. Question: Apple today (12/15/11) released AppleTV 4.4.4. Any know or have direct experience with this update and Seas0npass?
