Instructions on how to perform an untethered jailbreak of your second generation Apple TV using Seas0nPass for Windows.

*Before beginning this tutorial you must have already installed the Microsoft .Net Framework which can be found here.

Step One
Download the latest version of SeasonPass from here.

Step Two
Extract the archive you downloaded. Then double click the extracted application to launch it.

Step Three
Click the Create IPSW button from the main screen.

Step Four
Seas0nPass will now download the latest Apple TV firmware file

Step Five
Seas0nPass will create a custom IPSW file for you.

Step Six
Once your custom IPSW file has been created, Seas0nPass will ask you to connect the Apple TV to your computer via a micro-USB cable and use the remote to put it into DFU mode by holding MENU and PLAY/PAUSE for 7 seconds. The power cable should be unplugged during this process. Tip: Connect the usb cable and press the buttons down at the exact same time.

Step Seven
Once your Apple TV has been detected in DFU mode, Seas0nPass will upload some files, ask you if its okay to automatically restore firmware, and then beginning restoring to the new firmware.

Step Ten
That's it! Your Apple TV is jailbroken!

Seas0nPass provides an UN-TETHERED jailbreak of the 2nd gen Apple TV running the 5.3 (iOS 6.1.4 - 10B809) software that was released on June 19th, 2013.

Seas0nPass for Windows seems currently broken but this will work. I can testify it worked for 5.3 Jailbreak.

I am a rookie trying to jailbreak my apple tv 2 and need some help. I have Apple TV 2 version 4.3 8f455 and once I connect the Apple TV SeasOnPass it does continue to create an ISPW for this version but then "encounters a critical error" near the end when authenticating firmware signatures. When I pull up seas0npass I am left clicking and choosing version 4.3 8f455 is this incorrect? I am about 10 hours in to utube videos, different suggestions, many many tries and lots of frustration with the same outcome. Any thoughts? HELP!!!! Thanks Angela

sounds like all you need to do is ent. dfu mode; just plug your apple tv back into you PC and push and hold the two buttons; menu and play and pause buttons for 7 full seconds, and follow the onscreen directions. do you know if you are installing a "tether" or UNtethered JB?

When I launch SeasOnPass and click create IPSW it ask me to connect the Apple TV via USB port before doing anything. Once I connect the Apple TV SeasOnPass does continue to create an ISPW but encounters a critical error near the end when authenticating firmware signatures. I keep trying and I'm getting the same outcome. Any thoughts? Thanks.
