Pod2g Says Jailbreak for Apple TV 3 is Not Being Worked On
Pod2g has tweeted a status update on the Apple TV 3 jailbreak noting that it is not currently being worked on.
ATV3 jailbreak: I have no news sadly, I'm not currently working on it nor anyone that I'm aware of. Sorry...
While this is bad news, the new Apple TV does offer support for High Profile 4.0 H.264 video which previous models did not. That means conversion may not be needed before adding your video to iTunes and playing back through the Apple TV. If you use MKV wrapped H.264 video you can find our tutorial on converting to MP4 without re-encoding here.
