As it was being suspected earlier that theoretically it is possible to jailbreak Apple TV with Limera1n, Eric Sadun of TUAW has confirmed that she was able to jailbreak her Apple TV with Limera1n. The official Limera1n website has also been updated recently to point out the support for Apple TV.

According to Eric Sadun, she was successful in jailbreaking the new Apple TV with GeoHot’s Limera1n tool but unfortunately could not install OpenSSH rendering the jailbreak useless at the moment.


She says:

The Limera1n page has updated to indicate that Apple TV jb is “technically supported”. I can confirm that I put my ATV2 into DFU mode and was able to “jailbreak” it.

But since no AFC services or OpenSSH were installed (let alone APT), there’s nothing that really can be done with it at this time.

Stay tuned as we’ll let you know the moment Limera1n jailbreak for Apple TV is updated to install OpenSSH on our website, Twitter and Facebook!
