    The ATV3 jailbreak has not been released to users at this point.

    Last post here is from 5-12-2012. I purchased my ATV 3 last weekend, May 27, 2012. Are there any updates or any hopes for jailbreaking ATV 3 in the nearest future? Thank you in advance for your update and my appologies if this question is asked too many times.

    Nope. Pod2G already mentioned it:

    pod2g: Apple TV 3 won’t be supported in the upcoming 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak
    by TOMEK on MAY 16, 2012


    iOS hacker pod2g has posted on his blog a list of tested devices for the upcoming 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak. While it’s still uncertain if Apple TV 2 will be supported in this jailbreak, pod2g has no doubts that the jailbreak won’t be compatible with the Apple TV 3.

    My ATV3 has 5.0.1 loaded. Does that make a difference?

    No, there isn't yet.

    That "YET" at the end of your reply gives me hope. Is there a hope for ATV-3 jailbreak in the near future or is it over?

    Does this thread get an update only when there is a breakthrough? I am checking it daily but there is nothing happening.

    Nope, threads don't get updated unless one of the members decides to. One of the staff writers will probably put it in the news section if there is one released.

    I'm surprised there is no jailbreak for AppleTV 3G as every other iDevice is jailbroken except for that.
    I unfortunately got one not knowing there was no jailbreak for it.
    The last I read is it looks like there wont be a jailbreak for it. I really hope there will be one or I will have to take it back to the shop. It sucks the way it is now, it needs some LAN streaming and NOT from iTunes. I dont have my PC on 24/7 and wanted to stream from a NAS.

    I'm sure there'll be a jailbreak eventually. I've been jailbreaking since the 1st gen iphone and have heard the "no jailbreak forseen" over and over. The truth is, these wizard code crackers can't resist trying to outsmart apple's code writers so once they crack one device, they'll move on to the next. In the meantime, I just bought a 3rd gen apple tv for the high def and while I'm waiting for the jailbreak, I'm gonna install air parrot on my mac which will mirror the mac display on my hdtv via airplay on the apple tv. I'll also install xbmc on my mac and I also have a network drive and stream to the mac and mirror to my hdtv for starters. there a quite a few add ons available for xbmc plus streaming oughta keep me happy for a while.

    Sorry, haven't been here for a while. Airparrot has a free dowload but has limited functionality. Didn't really look into that, I just purchased the full app for 9.99. Airparrot basically puts your desktop image and sound on the screen you have your ATV atteched to. So you can run say, a movie, program, photos etc., on your pc/mac and it will be mirrored on your tv screen via airparrot to ATV. Google airparrot for more info. Go to youtube and search for"Apple tv jailbreak", "Airparrot", I'm sure you will find plenty of info between the two sites.
