Apple TV2 Seas0nPass Jailbreak for iOS 5.2.1 / 6.1.3 Is Now Available

There are a lot of iOS users that have lost hope there will ever be an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 for iPhone 5 and Apple TV 3 despite intense efforts to that end. First progress signs have already been reported and while we are working on the Apple TV 3 jailbreak, it’s always nice to hear good news to keep all of us motivated. Earlier this month, the Seas0nPass developers released for public use a tethered jailbreak for Apple TV 2 running iOS 5.1.2 (6.1.3).
 Seas0nPass Jailbreak iOS 5.2.1/6.1.3

Thanks to an updated seas0npass version, there is a jailbreak for ios 5.2.1/ 6.1.3 on Apple TV 2. This is definitely good news and we hope it’s a good sign for those of you who have lost hope your Apple TV will ever see the “light” of a new jailbreak.

The updated Seas0nPass jailbreaks iOS 5.2.1 or 6.1.3 on Apple TV 2 but performs only a tethered jailbreak, so you will have to keep your device connected to your Mac or PC when rebooting. That way you won’t have to install the jailbreak every time you reboot.

Don’t be disappointed because this is just a tethered jailbreak, Seas0nPass devs did a really good job and we’re sure they are working just as hard as we are to give you a free public release of an untethered jailbreak for ATV 2.

So, if you’re dying to rip the benefits of a jailbroken Apple TV 2, running iOS 5.2.1 (6.1.3) here’s how to perform the tethered jailbreak using the updated seas0npass tool:
Seas0nPass for Mac [10.6 or later]
Seas0nPass for Windows [XP or later]

Step 1

This is all about preparation. Prepare for the jailbreak Apple TV 2’s power cable, silver aluminum remote and a micro USB cable that is a maximum 1 meter long.

Step 2

Once you’ve got those items ready to go, it’s time to download the seas0npass jailbreak files. There are two versions available: one that works with Mac (10.6 or later) and one for Windows (XP or later).

Step 3

In the downloaded seasonpass jailbreak files, double click the folder and extract all the files. Select the .exe file and double click on it to launch the jailbreak application. You might be prompted a message that asks you to install iTunes, just click OK and proceed.

Step 4

You will have to click the “Create IPSW” option which basically activates the jailbreak app. Seas0nPass will now begin to download the Apple TV 5.2.1 ipsw file and create a jailbroken version of it. When that’s done, you will be asked to put your device in DFU mode.

Step 5

Entering the DFU mode is always something of a hassle for the first-time jailbreaker. Just follow these guidelines and you should have no problems entering the DFU mode the next time: plug-in the power cable and then the micro USB cable to your Apple TV. Wait for the front light to start glowing before pressing at the same time the Play and Menu buttons for 7 seconds. Remember to use the silver remote, not the plastic one. When the front light is blinking you have successfully entered your Apple TV 2 in DFU mode.

Step 6

Your Mac or desktop is now communicating with your Apple TV 2 in DFU mode. iTunes will launch and take over for you for the last few stages of the tethered jailbreak. It will begin a restoration process and when it will display a 1602 error message, don’t freak out. It is normal and it is a sign that your jailbreak has been performed correctly and is now completed.

Step 7

Before enjoying the perks of your newly jailbroken Apple TV 2 iOS 5.2.1, you will have to perform a few new steps to set top box on Tetherboot. Here’s how to do that. First of all, if the Seas0nPass jailbreak wizard closed after the jailbreak complete message, you will have to click on the Seas0nPass jailbreak file again and select “Boot Tethered” this time.

Step 8

Use the micro USB cable to connect your Apple TV 2 to your computer and put the box in DFU mode again. Just follow the guidelines we presented at Step 5. While in DFU mode for a second time during the tethered jailbreak, your Apple TV 2 will be taken over by iTunes.

Step 9

Remove the micro USB cable from the computer. Make sure you don’t touch the power cable however.

Step 10

Connect the HDMI cable to your Apple TV, set the Language and then just select “No Thanks” when the policy page is displayed.

Step 11


On your Apple TV 2’s home screen you should see the XBMC Firecore icon. If you do see it, then congrats: you've successfully performed a tethered jailbreak of your Apple TV 2 iOS 5.2.1.
