Don’t Wait For An Apple TV 3 Jailbreak, Because No One Is Working On One


We're still no closer to a third-generation Apple TV jailbreak.

If you’ve been browsing the Internet every day in the hope that someone’s going to announce a jailbreak for the third-generation Apple TV you bought back in March, then look away now. iOS hacker Pod2g has confirmed that neither he, nor any other hacker he knows of, is working on an exploit for the Apple’s latest set-top box.

In a tweet published this week, Pod2g wrote:

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

Both the first- and second-generation Apple TVs have been successfully jailbroken, opening them up to all kinds of features and services that Apple doesn’t support — like web browsers, XBMC, and more. But the latest model is yet to be cracked. It’s unclear why no one is working to change that, but it’s possible that Apple has successfully plugged all the holes that previously made jailbreaking the device possible.

Because of this, demand for the second-generation model has rocketed. Priced at just $99 when it first launched — like the latest model — the device can now be found fetching upwards of $250 on eBay.
