Want an Apple TV 3 jailbreak? Well, it may never come…

Have an Apple TV 3 (1080p)? Want it to be jailbroken? Well, for you I have some saddening news. Jailbreaker pod2g made this tweet the other day about what he knows:

ATV3 jailbreak: I have no news sadly, I’m not currently working on it nor anyone that I’m aware of. Sorry…

The new Apple TV has been out for quite a while now, and hasn’t seen any jailbreak action. Instead, jailbreakers have stuck to the (assuming) easier to hack device, the Apple TV 2. The ATV2 has been jailbroken on all major iOS software versions, and has become a great device for multimedia consumption. The folks over at iMore say that if you aren’t interested in jailbreaking your ATV2, you may want to sell it, as the used market for the device is making it even profitable for some.

What do you think? Disappointed it isn’t being worked on? Are you going to sell yours? Let us know in the comments.

    I guess Apple has won the battle on jailbreaking. Look forward to Apple using the same setup on future devices, now they know how to win. Gutted, as I have an ATV 3.

    Gonna trade my shit atv3 for a 2, the 3 is completely useless without jailbreak, I’m in Denmark and we dont even get the Netflix and tv-shows on our menu. I know you can change location, but iTunes won’t let you do anything

  • Apple fan

    Apple = 1 hackers = 0 this is the end of the road for hackers as Apple will use this method on all the products ! Burry your head in shame hackers!

  • Vercetti

    @Apple fan
    Yeah didnt think it would come to this :(

  • Bratty

    Just because no one is working on it does not mean it is not hackable.

    Apple hasn’t won. They will use this same setup on the Iphone 5 and future apple products. The thing is the market for the Iphone5 is much greater, so there is more of a drive to find a jailbreak than there is for the ATV3. Once they find the Iphone5 jailbreak, it will be no problem to jailbreak the ATV3.

    @CR Apple – You have no idea what you’re talking about, right? Do you even know WHY there isn’t a jailbreak yet? The reason the iPhones/iPads can be jailbroken, is because there are many more ways in (hardware and software). The ATV3 has so little holes, or openings, that is has proven difficult. A jailbreak for the iPhone 5 won’t have anything to do with, necessarily, with the ATV3.

     @Markers Too bad, dude . . . if you have some extra $$$ I have a whole bunch of jailbroken Apple TV 2s . . .

     @CR
     actually you’re the one that’s wrong and you don’t know what you’re talking about. the reason behind so few holes is because of the processor in the unit which is most secure so far and will likelly be used in iphone 5 yes

  • Vercetti

    @CR Apple
    Yeah, ONCE they find it.
    If the king of ios hacks can’t figure it out, I doubt anyone can.
    I’m trading my atv3 for a 2 cause the 3 without jb, is utter shit

    @Vercetti You don’t have to jailbreak atv3 as long as you have a iPad oriphone jailbroken with xbmc installed and AirPlay it works just as god as atv2 I use it everyday with navi-x and all repos installed on my iPad 3 i would not pay 200 for a atv2:-)
