Posted by: JohnWe know how much you’ve been waiting for this status update and we’d like to apologize it took us so long to get back at you in a post.(Why is Apple Tv 3 Jailbreak Taking So Long?)
Meanwhile here is the Only Apple Tv Jailbreak Alternative - Learn more about Plex
We’ve been communicating with you over the past few weeks via comments, emails and messages and you’ve been of so much help, thanks are in order. I know you’d love more to be thanked with a public jailbreak release for ATV3, but you’re going to have to wait just a little bit more.
We’ve decided to make another call for fellow jailbreakers to get involved. This time around there’s a $2500 bounty and Future Donations Credits to get you motivated.But first things first. We’ve made a lot of progress and a lot of that is thanks to you. We have currently so many exploits to test we just can’t do it by ourselves.
Like Mike Davies mentioned before, there is an army of global hackers and testers helping with this. Small in numbers, that’s true, but even so big in brain power. Jailbreaking Apple TV 3 is difficult, but it’s not impossible. Remember there’s always a solution, you just have to look for it consistently. We are optimistic about the release of the ATV3 jailbreak in the upcoming weeks, so stay positive, you’ll soon have a reason to unbox your device.

Please don't waste our time with comments like :"This is scam", "Where is the Jailbreak" " The Jailbreak will never come out"
If you don't like this website leave it.And now for the most appealing part of our Apple TV 3 jailbreak status update: the $2500 bounty. Remember we are understaffed and poorly funded, but we decided to award the person that delivers a bullet-proof jailbreak fix for ATV3 with a bounty worth $2500. The money is already set aside to make sure we are all ready to go with a public release as soon as the jailbreak is delivered.
The only condition for the $2500 bounty is to agree to have the ATV3 jailbreak code released publicly for free. We are also ready to give you the Future Donations Credits, so if you’ve been waiting for a good reason to actually set up your mind on developing the ATV3 jailbreak, it doesn’t get any better than this.
Please remember we are all doing our very best to release this jailbreak as soon as possible and that’s why we have decided to launch the $2500 bounty out of my own pocket . Hope that is a good-enough motivation for all of you great hackers out there. Just contact us by email, by comment or via a social network for more details.
I know you’ve been waiting for news on this, so here is where we currently stand with the Apple TV 3 jailbreak. We are currently testing several exploits and most are giving us a handful. A reader reported that xmbc works on atv3 with airparrot via a file called Bonjour64.msi which is obtained from an iTunes file download. We tried that and used it with airplay to try mirroring on atv3 via an iPad with xbmc. So that’s one hack that’s been causing a lot of headaches.
We’ve also received an ATV3 restore.ipsw file and a key said to be directly from Apple and we are currently testing the jailbreak using that particular code. There’s a lot more that’s going on, just enough hacks to keep us busy night and day. If you want to help, please contact us and we’ll give you a full update.
Also, thanks for the financial support. That’s been very helpful since during the development of the ATV3 jailbreak we’ve burned a lot of devices.
I know the last ATV 3 jailbreak status update article became difficult to scroll for comments, so you can stay in touch with us via the rss feed for comments available here: www.appletv3jailbreak.com/feeds/comments/default. I have also set up a widget to help stay in touch and now you can follow us by e-mail. You can find it in the right sidebar.
While we’re still working on the jailbreak for ATV3, you will have a new section at hand to browse on our website. We have put together a comprehensive selection of How To articles that will help you make the most of your ATV and it will be available in the next days.
Articles vary from teaching you how to set up your Apple TV and how to set up home sharing for Apple TV or how to use AirPlay Mirroring, as well as troubleshooting for common issues. Our Apple TV hacks, how-to articles and guides will apply to all generation-devices, not just ATV 3.
Thank you all for being so patient and remember, stay positive and don't give up on getting the jailbreak for ATV3.
