Seas0nPass iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak released for Apple TV

By , May 25, 2012

Hot on the heels of the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak release earlier today, Seas0nPass has been updated to bring support for the second generation Apple TV iOS 5.0.1 (iOS 5.1.1).

This release brings the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak to the Apple TV 2, which up until now could only support a tethered jailbreak. Thanks to the hard work of pod2g and others, we now have a true untethered jailbreak available for the Apple TV’s latest firmware…

Unfortunately, this version of Seas0nPass does not bring support for the 3rd generation Apple TV. It is our understanding that our favorite iOS hackers are currently working hard on it, but it’s just not possible at this time. We’ll make sure to keep you updated when there is a jailbreak for the newer Apple TV model.

For step by step directions on how to use Seas0nPass to jailbreak your Apple TV 2, I suggest you refer to our previous Seas0nPass tutorial. It is not completely up to date, but the steps are the same.

Plugins supported in iOS 5.0.1:

  • Couch Surfer (works)
  • Last.fm (works)
  • Maintenance (works)
  • Media Player (works)
  • NitoTV (works)
  • Plex (works)
  • RSS Feeds (works)
  • Rowmote (works)
  • Weather (works)
  • XBMC (works)
  • Overflow (not working)
  • Remote HD (not working)

    A tutorial would be great. I don’t know what’s going wrong but I’m having error 9 when restoring on iTunes.

    I’m currently running 4.4.4 on my atv and am already jail broken with a previous release of season pass. Is there a quick and painless way to update to 5.0.1 without having to go through the whole process again?

      The only thing that takes a while to setup is XBMC.. You can copy all your configuration and setting files by scp’ing /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/ off the ATV to a local disk and then scp’ing it back. Make sure you chown -R mobile /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/ when you copy it back.

        I’m not sure what you mean by:

        “Make sure you chown -R mobile /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/ when you copy it back.”

        I did copy the XBMC folder like you suggest, then placed it back in the same location after the next jailbreak. All my preferences seem to have been preserved in XBMC, but the scripts keep failing. Any ideas? Thanks!

        You can disregard my previous question; I got impatient and deleted the XBMC preferences folder and started from scratch. Lost some of my favorites, etc. saved in various add-ons, but everything is working now!

    I’m still “stuck” with my 3rd Gen Apple TV…… C’est La Vie!!!

    But, maybe there is hope???….

    Last night, I was prompted by my Apple TV to Update the iOS – so, I said “NO” – but, perhaps there is an exploit that Apple found and is hoping to plug up before the Jailbreakers find it??? Hope So!

    So for now, I’m not going to allow any updates to my Apple TV with the hopes someone will find it. :-)
