Now that the Pangu Team has released their jailbreak for the new Apple TV, we have had some hands-on time with the tool and were successful in jailbreaking our own test device. In this post, we will share detailed step by step instructions on how to jailbreak the new Apple TV using Pangu. Before we get started, we must share a few words of caution.
Following up on their promise, the Pangu Team has now released a jailbreak for the fourth-generation Apple TV. The tool can be downloaded from our Downloads page and instructions on how to use it will soon be available on iDB.
It must be noted that this jailbreak tool comes with strings attached. As the Pangu Team had warned, this jailbreak is more geared towards security researchers and developers. End users will see no real value in this jailbreak, at least for the time being.
Apple has released tvOS 9.0.1 for the new Apple TV. The update is available as an OTA update by going to Settings → System → Software Updates. The full update is also available as a 922 MB download from Apple.
tvOS 9.0.1 comes with build number 13T402, and any user currently running tvOS 9.0, which will be all users not running a beta, are recommended to update.
