  • PanGu releases 9.0.X Jailbreak for Apple TV 4

    The PanGu Team has now released a jailbreak for the fourth-generation Apple TV. The tool can be downloaded from their official website.

    Please note that the jailbreak tool comes with strings attached. As the PanGu Team had warned, this jailbreak is more geared towards security researchers and developers. End users will see no real value in this jailbreak, at least for the time being.


    Can you even jailbreak your Apple TV?

    This jailbreak is limited to the new Apple TV (fourth generation), and supports only tvOS 9.0, and tvOS 9.0.1. If you have anything above these versions, then you are out of luck, and there is nothing you can do as it is impossible to downgrade the firmware to a previous version.

    If your Apple TV is on tvOS 9.1 or later, your best bet is to just go to the Apple Store and look up serial numbers of Apple TVs available for purchase, and make sure you choose one that was manufactured before December 2016. To do so, you can run this simple tool by entering the Serial Number of the device, and it will tell you when it was manufactured. If you see anything before December, then it means it is running a version of tvOS 9.0 or 9.0.1.

    What about other Apple TV models and software versions?

    Only the latest Apple TV running tvOS 9.0 or 9.0.1 can be jailbroken. Previous models arenít supported, and it is unlikely they will ever be at this point.

    The limitations of that jailbreak

    As previously mentioned, the limitations, besides the devices requirements, are that this is a jailbreak mostly targeted for security researchers and jailbreak developers. Users like you and me wonít probably get much out of it, at least until progress is made and someone develop a GUI for the jailbreak and developers start releasing tweaks/mods for the Apple TV.

      Haha we don't know that yet but yes most likely it won't be released by Pangu if they've released a Jailbreak for ATV4

      Even if it is useless for now, any development that occurs will be for tvOS 9.0 and 9.0.1. Thus, if we ever want to "get something out of it" now is the time to buy, because the longer we wait, the less likely we'll be able to find those that are manufactured before December 2016, right?
