Now that iOS 6 has been jailbroken on the portable devices, the discussion of the Apple TV 3 has surfaced again. The Apple TV 3 has never had a public jailbreak, tethered or untethered. Last weekend, nearly simultaneously to the release of the iOS jailbreak, the groups working on the Apple TV 3 jailbreak have announced that they have a successful non-tethered jailbreak functioning. This is assuming that the success on the mobile devices gave them inroads to access previously unreachable areas of the Apple TV 3.
There was an initial statement that the release would likely come out last Friday (Feb 1). That didn’t happen. I watched commentary last night that said that group is waiting for the release of iOS 6.1, which was believed to be imminent.
The shots taken from the jailbreak show compatibility with Plex and XBMC.
I’ve been waiting for some time for an Apple TV 3 jailbreak to finally arrive.
