  • Apple TV 3 Jailbreak Not Coming Any Time Soon

    As everyone continues to purchase the newer iOS devices, one question continually comes to mind: When does the jailbreak come out? Such is the case for the iPhone 5, fourth-generation iPad, iPad mini, and last but not least, the Apple TV 3. While most of the devices named are relatively new, the Apple TV 3 continues to remain non-jailbroken for the longest. The folks over at FireCore, the people behind the Seas0nPass jailbreak tool for the 2nd generation Apple TV, continue to say they are still working on a jailbreak for the Apple TV 3:

    No one is more anxious than us to get the ATV3 opened up to 3rd party apps, but due to the reasons mentioned above were not able to provide any kind of release timeline right now.
    According to a recently released blog post by FireCore, the gist of the issue continues to come down to the lack of expertise when it comes to cracking the security that Apple has put on the device. The following was said in the blog:

    While we tend to think of ourselves as pretty resourceful, the security related expertise that is required in order to release a jailbreak for iOS based devices like the ATV is just not in our wheelhouse, and were simply left to encourage the capable few as best we can.
    If you have an older iOS device, there seem to be several possible jailbreak options ahead of you. For those of you who were fortunate enough (or in the case of a jailbreak, less fortunate) to have a new iOS device, youre still stuck waiting. As always patience is a virtue but in this case, you dont really have much of a choice either. Lets hope the jailbreak community finds a way to crack the new devices and make room for more jailbreaks overall.

      You don't see the point in jail breaking it because you don't know what to install. Trust me on that.

      The thing is, they're not a reputable source. They don't have ties to the jailbreaking community, so they know about as much as any of us. Didn't really want to get into a debate about this, I just found it odd that an article would quote these guys. The author might as well just have asked me or you, since our answers would have been equally qualified.

      Anyway, I'm not upset or anything and neither should anyone be over my posts. I'm really just thinking out loud
