The Seas0nPass jailbreak tool has been updated with support for the Apple TV on iOS 4.4.2. Apple pushed out the minor 4.2.2 update for the Apple TV 2G a few days ago.

Seas0nPass supports a tethered jailbreak for iOS 4.4.2, meaning that you will have to re-jailbreak every time your Apple TV reboots. More details after the break…

The Seas0nPass developers at Firecore note that they will continue to support the last untethered Seas0nPass jailbreak for the Apple TV 2G on iOS 4.3. Updating is not required, but you do get these new features with iOS 4.4+ on the Apple TV:

  • Photo Stream: View photos recently taken on your iOS device and pushed to your Photo Stream in iCloud.
  • Trailers: A whole new way to browse and view hundreds of the latest theatrical trailers.
  • National Hockey League: Watch live games. View highlights, scores, and more.
  • Wall Street Journal Live: Watch up-to-date news, business commentary, and financial analysis from leading experts.
