If you have been one of the many people who have been patiently waiting for a jailbreak to be released for the third generation Apple TV (1080p), then you are going to be very disappointed. According to the popular iOS jailbreaker, pod2g, he isnít working on a jailbreak for the Apple TV 3 and he doesnít know anyone else who is either. In a recent tweet, pod2g mentioned the following:
ATV3 jailbreak: I have no news sadly, I'm not currently working on it nor anyone that I'm aware of. Sorry...
The fact that there isnít any progress in the jailbreak scene for the Apple TV 3 will make the demand for the second generation Apple TV in the used market, skyrocket. For those of you who own a second generation Apple TV and donít see the need to jailbreak, you can sell yours, buy a third generation Apple TV, gain the ability to watch videos in 1080p, and still come out ahead financially as the prices for the second generation Apple TVs are increasing.
For those of you who have an Apple TV 3 and were waiting for something to come about, you may have to reconsider what you want to do.
