Apple TV Jailbreak Exploit

The Apple TV runs iOS 4.1, and because of that it means it can be jailbroke although official tests haven’t been performed yet.

The developer of the SHatter exploit, @pod2g, managed to use the SHatter code to decrypt the keys.

It’s looking like SHAtter is going to be the gift that keeps on giving. Even though the new AppleTV isn’t yet in people’s homes, the firmware is available on Apple’s normal public distribution servers and SHAtter has been used to decrypt its keys! The main filesystem (“Mojave8M89.K66OS”) key for 018-8609-066.dmg is:

The decryption key is posted over here (see updated section of post) along with a few details.

Musclenerd also comments that those who wish to jailbreak Apple TV shouldn’t wait too long to buy theirs as Apple could easily update the hardware/firmware to prevent this exploit from being used.
