3 Reasons Why You Should Jailbreak Your Apple TV 3

Here are three of the most important reasons that could help you decide in case you are still pondering on whether to jailbreak your new device or not.

Even though a valid jailbreak for the third generation of Apple TV hasn’t been revealed yet, you should, nevertheless, get prepared for the moment when it will eventually be disclosed. Some Apple TV owners may try to convince you that the process is too risky because your warranty will become void. However, the fact that you can use your device at its full capacity should make you at least consider jailbreaking it.

Most Apple TV customers complain about the streaming quality of the videos they purchase or rent on iTunes. The download speed is not any better, either, if we were to judge by those who waited three hours for a movie. Luckily, the jailbreak enables you to free your gadget of all restrictions that Apple tried to impose and to make full use of it.

As the term might metaphorically suggest it, jailbreaking into an Apple device, be it iPhone, iPad or Apple TV gives you the possibility to gain root access to your gadget. The firmware and operating system used on the device, namely iOS, will be easily controlled by you once you have broken them. What’s more important, iOS-based gadgets are now so easy to break that it would actually be a pity if you did not take advantage of this opportunity to enhance their capacity.

All you need to do to jailbreak your Apple TV 3 is a computer or laptop and the latest version of iTunes. As soon as the jailbreaking software for the third generation of digital media receiver is released, you will be able to download and install it on your device.

  1. I'm an Apple TV 3 noob. I'm very frustrated with the restrictiveness that it imposes on the video format you can play. Format, not formats.

    Will any potential jailbreak provide an avenue to play .avi, .vob etc etc?

  3. I'm using the Remote app on my iPad to use the iPad as a remote control for the atv3.
    On the iPad I can select on where the screen of the iPad will be displayed (Airplay): iPad/ATV or both.

    Are both features still be availeble after installing the jailbreak?
