  • SHAtter Decrypts AppleTV iOS Firmware

    Earlier tonight I had seen Chpwn tweet about the new Apple TV firmware, which is indeed actually iOS based as we had hoped for. The firmware is even available to download from Apple's servers, before the product has even hit hands of anxious pre-order customers.

    Shortly after hearing of this, the Dev-Team posted a small update to their recent demo of SHAtter, stating that SHAtter has been successfully used to decrypt the Apple TV iOS keys!

    The main filesystem (“Mojave8M89.K66OS”) key for 018-8609-066.dmg is:

    31c700a852f1877c88efc05bc5c63e8c7f081c4cb28d024ed7 f9b0dbc98c7e1406e499c6

    If 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!)
    I have a good feeling about the next month.

      Right now we don't know. But if it can be made to run iOS apps since it is part iOS then think of all the streaming apps. MLB, Hulu Plus, etc

      They know. If they allowed video playback from iTunes, they'd never make money renting movies and tv shows.

      For some who aren't setup, it'd be cool. For me, it'd be a waste of $99. I'd be dependent on a jailbreak to do what I want, and dependent on devs to make the apps to do what I want. And I'd have ANOTHER iDevice in lockdown, waiting for jailbreaks and ignoring updates.
      I'm streaming video from my iTunes to mine perfectly fine. Please don't spread FUD about things you know absolutely nothing about.

      I don't see it as a risk of $99 at all. Worst case scenario is that I lose interest in it, at which point I will throw it on Craig's List or eBay for $75. I'll take a $25 gamble.

      As far as having another iDevice in "lockdown" goes, is it really that big of a worry for you? Sure my aTV will be on "lockdown" initially, but it sure seems to do more than enough to keep me entertained for now.

      Latest jailbreak tweet from the man himself

      @p0sixninja Joshua Hill
      Things have progressed to the point where we don't expect anymore roadblocks. ETA for greenpois0n is 10/10/10 at 10:10:10AM

      Please note that an ETA is, by definition, an estimate. There may still be delays, although we will try for there not to be any.
