    Well, that didn't take long.

    @MuscleNerd reported last night that he was able to use SHAtter to make the new Apple TV restore a pre-jailbroken IPSW. This video, released on the Dev-Team Blog, shows @MuscleNerd using ssh to access the Apple TV, running commands as root. According to @p0sixninja, it only took @MuscleNerd 30 minutes to do it.

    The "not ready for prime time" jailbreak just shows what's possible, as there's no way to load and run apps on the Apple TV… yet. However, @StealthBravo has confirmed that you can mount the Apple TV in iTunes using a microUSB cable, and TinyUmbrella has already been updated to allow users to save Apple TV SHSH blobs. Late last night, @StealthBravo found DFU mode: plug in a microUSB cable (no power cord), hold the Menu and Down buttons for 6 seconds to reboot and then immediately hold Menu and Play buttons. The team is working with devs from the original Apple TV, and it looks like @nitoTV has a list of most if not all of the headers.

    Things are about to get interesting. Make sure you pick up a microUSB cable when you get your Apple TV!

      but to me that is exactly the point, Apple TV 2 by itself ....BAhh...

      Apple TV 2 + Jailbreake = So much potential.... so much more that it can do..

      YOu quited watching TV, but an Jailbroken AppleTV can possible do so much more than just "watching TV" and that is what make this so relevant. Combinations of iPads, iPhones and TV (Jailbroken) make such a great and large platform to develop

      How about releasing a jailbreak?

      Telling us what it can do is one thing - actually getting to use the damn thing is another!

      Ok maybe I overreacted but when u spend 30 bucks on something u expect to use it. 30 bucks don't grow from trees. And I never upgraded I had the old touch and apple gave me the new one for free. Since they don't make my model anymore and I was mad in the genius bar so they gave it to me.

      Does netflix really look better on this than the PS3, or are you just trying to justify your purchase. I find this very hard to believe.

      So you got a free, latest gen touch running ios 4.1 and you are whinning about the jailbreak which is probably a few weeks a away. C'mon man.

      Absolutely.

      They should release the finished JB first, then test it, then package the exploits into a nice JB tool, then find the underlying exploits, then start poking around at new and mysterious hardware.

      They also need to do this BEFORE Apple releases a new bootrom, to ensure Apple has time to patch the bugs that allowed a JB in the first place.

      I'm not even sure what Apple TV is, but heck yeah, jailbreak it!

      Man, I've been without a jailbreak for a month now. This is the longest time I've gone without it in more than a year. It's amazing how attached I've become to the added functionality. It's been a month and I still swipe across the time to bring down SBSettings! Going in and out of the Settings app to turn on/off my Wifi is torturous.

      I don't care about Apple TV. Why? 6GB internal flash storage - that's it. You hook me up with some nifty apps and expand the storage space somehow, and I might just bite.

      Or I might just Roku.

      lol I was the same when the iPhone 4 was first released and I got mine in the mail... I was so use to using the sbsettings on my old 3GS to quickly turn on/off my wifi. That I kept swiping my finger across my iphone 4 as well waiting for the menu to come down when there wasnt a JB tool for it yet for me to Install sbsetting. lol it's addicting!!

      6GB internal flash storage
      LOL, ITs 8gb. Not that that matters,. The point of this device is streaming things to it... Thats very clear. If that's not your bag, go buy something else! Like a MacMini.

      Funny how so many people bash something. Then buy it weeks later. You have an iPad, and I bet you have bashed that on here before as well!

      This is a forum for people to talk about apple stuff. Typically people who like and use the products.

      If you want to bash apple stuff, Im sure you can go find an anti-apple forum to waste your time on.

      do you know how to make a jailbreak? do you even know how many man hours it takes to even develop it? then you have to test for countless hours so you can inform people of the risks they are taking by using it. how can some one release something before even making it? you have no right to put your retarded two cents in this pot. please dont say anything unless you have something nice to say. I give HUGE props to the dev team for even wanting to do work for unappreciative trolls like yourself.

      The picture quality is about the same, but the UI is 100x better. Also it's a whole lot easier using my iPhone and iPad as a remote than the ps3 controller.

      Exactly! Plus my PS3 controller's battery is always dead.
