p0sixspwn updated with fixes for iMessage, LTE and Apple TV 2 support

By , Dec 31, 2013

p0sixspwn

For those that missed it this morning, p0sixspwn was updated to fix a few major bugs from the previous release. The untethered jailbreak, released for devices on iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5 by winocm and iH8Sn0w, should no longer create issues with iMessage or LTE.

Interestingly enough, the update also adds support for the Apple TV 2 (still no Apple TV 3). So while I don’t think you can use it to directly jailbreak the set-top box, it shouldn’t be too long before a utility like Seas0nPass takes advantage of the new capability… 

Here’s iH8Sn0w with the announcement:

And here’s NitoTV with a few more details:

So we’ll still have to wait a bit for the actual Apple TV jailbreak to hit, but folks with devices on iOS 6.1.x firmware who have been having trouble with LTE (or really anything else) after jailbreaking with the original p0sixspwn should update to the new version in Cydia.

    How to get untether from a tethered jailbreak on the AT2 … is there a tutorial ?!?!?

    • Bosco

      ‘So we’ll still have to wait a bit for the actual Apple TV jailbreak to hit’ – we have to wait for NitoTV to add the untether to their bundle.

      • @dappa_yute

        thanks …

  • Modest

    Can someone explain to me why is no one on Apple TV3 jailbreak?

    • WolfgangHoltz

      Apple TV3 have no known hardware exploit, and don’t have the software with exploit that the phone have.

    • jocastro

      yeah you probably wont see it anytime soon.. unless someone finds a exploit. to tell you the truth i wouldn’t hold my breath on it if i was you.

    • Sean Clark

      Apple TV is extremely locked down and has so few injection routes that all jailbreaks for it have to rely on bootrom exploits, which are very rare. If Apple TV had an app store, we’d have a lot more to work with.

  • chumawumba

    Think about this guys…

    EVERY CURRENT IOS DEVICE RIGHT NOW CAN BE JAILBROKEN!

    • Tristan

      No, not the Apple TV 3.

    • lemonhead

      sorry to ruin the good mood, but Apple TV 3 is an ios device & hasn’t been jailbroken yet (& probably never will)

      • chumawumba

        Crap I forgot about that

  • Merman123

    How many exploits did they ruin with this update ? lol

    • NotTodayThx

      Burning that launchpad one was silly, or it appears to us to be so, maybe these guys are as ‘street smart’ as they are code smart, well enough to not burn un-re-build-able bridges. Personally i find a lot of high profile figures in ANY scene seem to be quite arrogant & very much ego-centric, but regardless of ego etc, if i find a 0day & keep it, release it, sell it, throw it away its no ones business, period.
      All ppl shud be glad if anyone works hard, so that you can have better stuff for free, its not your place to bitch about it. Take it or leave it, have an opinion ( opinions are good) but dont fuckin whine like a child missing a dummy tit.
      Peace

    I am tired of this exploit stuff. P0sixpwn is stupid. The root exploit should of been used for something good.

    • Ali

      Did he work for you? Or were you going to pay him (not donate) if the exploit was used for something “good”? Whatever it is/was used for, you are getting it for free, so STOP complaining!

      • Ben

        I am getting it for free?! I don’t even want it! I never asked for it.. I have an iOS 7 JB on my iPhone 5!

      • Ali

        Then why are you guys constantly complaining about an idle exploit that was used?

      • Johannes Mertens

        Because for several years this exploit was a starting point to find others, everybody knew that. It made initial filesystem access much easier and wasn’t intended for a jailbreak release. Now jailbreaking future iOS releases will
        Be getting harder.

    There’s an annoying bug after I jailbroke when I’m viewing multimedia in fullscreen. The status bar icons and text will not go away!

    • chumawumba

      Everyone has that bug

      • e1ghtSpace

        It’s interesting, maybe it has something to do with the way the evad3rs exploited the system, I mean every app uses the status bar, it makes sense. Well not every app but you get it.

  • rosssimpson

    Installed the untethered on my ATV2 and it’s working flawlessly :D

    • @dappa_yute

      i’m guessing you did this on a mac ?

      • rosssimpson

        Yeah :) Jailbroke tethered using seas0npass then installed p0sixspwn using nitoTV to get it untethered :)

      • bakerboyz

        can you explain how you did this a little better?

  • El_cano2008

    If the Evaiders beak IOS7 you don’t think they can do the same with the Apple TV3?

  • JoJo

    Jailbreak the ATV3 please!

    T.T

  • Z A

    Missing cydia on iphone 4s after running the jailbreak. I tried it twice and still no sign of cydia on my iphone 4s.

  • Ryan Horne

    OMG i can’t find an answer to this. I have an atv2 with 5.3 6105 and I cannot jb it no matter what. every time I use seasonpass it gives me one of two errors. one is something about unable to load ibss. the other is about failed to update something. Can 5.3 be JB or not?
