  • Pwnage Tool 4.1 Released, Jailbreaks Apple TV


    We've been waiting a bit now for Pwnage Tool to be updated to support 4.x devices, and today's release of Pwnage Tool 4.1 finally gets us there. The main advantage of Pwnage Tool over the limera1n and greenpois0n recent jailbreaks (which actually use the same exploit) is for unlockers. Pwnage Tool's functionality of updating to a pre-jailbroken firmware preserves the baseband you were on (your cellular modem, the part of the phone actually being "unlocked") so your ultrasn0w unlock is preserved. For new 4.1 users jailbreaking for the first time, ultrasn0w does not yet support the 02.10.04 baseband on iPhone 4 (check yours in Settings > General > About > Modem Firmware).

    Mentioned a few days ago as a tool to get "untethered jailbreaks on all future A4 firmwares" (which they don't clarify today, just mention again in the iPhone Dev Team release post), this release jailbreaks the following devices:
    • AppleTV 2G
    • iPad (firmware 3.2.2)
    • iPod touch 4G
    • iPod touch 3G
    • iPhone4
    • iPhone 3GS
    • iPhone 3G

    As always, Pwnage Tool is a Mac only software.

    Here's download links (more to come):

    MMi Member Mirror
    Megaupload
    Rapidshare

    Official Bittorrent Release
    PwnageTool 4.1 Torrent - PwnageTool_4.1.dmg.5898597.TPB.torrent
    SHA1 Sum = 4f216e5863d191f30f84b6201e8c2bbea031e691

    Apple TV jailbreaking is in babyland right now - exciting, just like when the community first started building apps for the iPhone long before an SDK was even announced. The Dev Team includes this note to all Apple TV jailbreakers:

    AppleTV 2G users: Welcome to the JB family! Right now, about all you can do is command-line stuff via ssh. You also have afc2 available, so you can use tools like ifunbox to move files around. These are the *very* early days of AppleTV 2G jailbreaking, so it’ll take some time for JB app developers to come up with methods to use your AppleTV 2G from the remote, versus the command line. PS: Your ssh password is “alpine”…please change it when you can
    We'll get a full tutorial up soon, but it's pretty simple - download, open, and follow the instructions in the app.

    If you've already jailbroken with either greenpois0n or limera1n, you will gain nothing by jailbreaking again with Pwnage Tool, so don't bother yourself.

      Nope. The first gen apple tv does not run an A4 chip and does not run iOS.

      You can SSH apps onto it... although none exist at the moment. Be patient.

      So is there any stipulations? For example does a 3gs have to have been previously jailbroken with redsnow or pwnage tool?

      Worked great for me except that Cydia wouldn't open on the initial startup. I just rebooted and it works fine now. Just thought I'd throw that out there in case anyone else had a similar issue.

      people, people, we have to have a jailbreak first to enable devs to create apps, so just wait for the apps to come. Maybe pandora, or the likes, who knows but you gotta start with jailbreaking so give it some time

      Ever hear of Boxee or XBMC? Additional codec support? NAS support? A web browser? This opens up alot of possibilities similar to the original AppleTV except this one has more horsepower compared to the original (I'm assuming?!?).
