Much of this past week’s news has been all about the newfangled checkra1n jailbreak for certain iOS devices affected by the checkm8 bootrom exploit, but was anyone wondering about the progress on support for Apple TV? If you answered ‘yes’ to that question, then wonder no longer.
It would now seem that an official fork of the checkra1n jailbreak tool dubbed checkra1n tv was soft released as a public beta on the checkra1n team’s official website Wednesday evening. The news was shared first by Apple TV jailbreak mastermind @nitoTV on Twitter:
The Electra Team released updated versions of both the iOS-centric Chimera jailbreak tool and the tvOS-centric ChimeraTV jailbreak tool Wednesday evening, bringing both tools up to version 1.3.4 on the official Chimera download page.
The Electra Team announced these new updates just a few minutes ago via Twitter, denoting some of the changes that came with each new iteration:
It appears to be a big day for the Electra Team. Just this morning, the iOS 12-centric Chimera jailbreak received an update to version 1.2.3 with support for certain builds of the iOS 12.3 beta, and in addition to that, the tvOS-centric ChimeraTV jailbreak was updated to version 1.2.2 with support for tvOS 12.2 on the Apple TV 4K.
The Electra team shared both announcements this morning via Twitter, linking to the newly-updated jailbreak tools on the Chimera website in the process:
In this guide we'll take you through jailbreaking with ChimeraTV on tvOS 12. Fire up your 1080p Apple TV 4 on tvOS 12.0-12.2/12.4 or Apple TV 4K on tvOS 12.0-12.2/12.4 and let's get started!
Apple is moving right along with the latest developer betas for macOS Mojave, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12.
The latest betas of the upcoming iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3 updates include HBO, EPIX, Cinemax and other subscription options available within Apple's TV app.
Apple on Wednesday released the tvOS 12.2.1 software update for the fourth-generation Apple TV HD and the fifth-generation Apple TV 4K set-top boxes.
Apple today released second betas for the upcoming iOS 12.3, tvOS 12.3, macOS Mojave 10.14.5 and watchOS 5.2.1 software updates, arriving less than two weeks after the first betas were made available to the company's registered developers and public beta testers.
Apple today released fourth developer betas for the upcoming iOS 12.2, watchOS 5.2, macOS Mojave 10.14.4 and tvOS 12.2 updates (public betas should be arriving shortly).
Apple today seeded third betas for the upcoming iOS 12.2, watchOS 5.2 and tvOS 12.2 software updates to its registered developers and members of the Apple Developer Program. The latest releases, sans the watchOS beta, should launch shortly for public beta testers. In case you've been wondering, public betas are generally identical to developer betas.
