'Seas0nPass' Jailbreak App Now Available

Today we're proud to introduce 'Seas0nPass' - a new jailbreak tool designed specifically for the AppleTV.

Seas0nPass was created exclusively for the AppleTV user, as previously no AppleTV specific jailbreak tools were available. Seas0nPass allows you to easily create custom AppleTV IPSW files and restore them in iTunes (similar to the existing Pwnage Tool app). Also included is a simple 'tethered boot' option which aids in using newer AppleTV firmwares when an 'un-tethered' jailbreak is not yet available.

Seas0nPass is available for free, and is open source. The source code is available on Github.

What can I do with Seas0nPass?

  • Jailbreak the AppleTV with the latest 4.1.1 (iOS 4.2.1) software.
  • Easily perform a 'tethered boot' (when necessary).

What is the difference between a 'tethered' and 'un-tethered' jailbreak?

A tethered jailbreak requires the AppleTV to be connected to a computer for a brief moment during startup. An un-tethered jailbreak removes this restriction. Un-tethered jailbreaks are are a bit more complex and take more time to complete.

How much does Seas0nPass cost?

Seas0nPass is available as a free download - no strings attached.

What are the minimum requirements?

Mac: OSX 10.6 or later

Windows: coming soon

Can I use this on my iPhone, iPad, or other iOS device?

Nope. Seas0nPass is designed exclusively for the 2nd gen AppleTV.

Sounds great! Where can I download it?

The Seas0nPass app, and user guides can be found at Seas0nPass.com

Comments are welcome below. Enjoy :-)

Update: Seas0nPass 0.6.4 has a bug that is preventing items from the 'Manage Extras' menu from being installed. An update will be available shortly.

Update 2: 0.6.5 has the Manage Extras menu install bug fixed.

Update 3: 0.6.6 includes a handful of fixes most notably one that addresses a pesky wifi network issue.

Update 4: 0.6.7 includes a number of improvements. Full changelog here.

If you're still having trouble when using the latest version please view the troubleshooting tips here.


hi everyone, I've accidentally put my jailbroken atv2 into restore, now it only shows the iTunes symbol with the usb pictured as if to say plug into iTunes. but it will not do anything, I've tried to re jailbreak it but when it gets to the iTunes restore point it throws up unknown error 21. can anyone advise please?

Will seas0npass completely restore ATV? Like, will it delete my photos that are synced in through iCloud?

Ok.... I have successfully jail broken my ATV box and the FC icon is displayed within the menu system...great but what's next......? I'm running my computer under windows 7 and can't seem to find any installers which can quickley take me to the next level...

i want to download app

I downloaded and installed the atvflash onto my apple tv 2 ( IOS 5.00 ) two
days ago . I am using the couch surfer and I am unable to view any videos
which must have the latest adobe flash player installed.

I have installed your latest version a TV Flash ( black) and I am aware about the information posted this on August 02, 2011 says

Couch Surfer unfortunately are not currently supported .Adobe Flash and MS Silverlight video.

As you it says " currently " since August 02, 2011 , I am not happy that this issue is not solved yet.

I already wrote this request to the fire core support , but I have not received an answer yet

So maybe someone knows how I can install Adobe Flash or an alternative flash player to run web video streaming

supported by Adobe Flash player?

I dare say a few people are unhappy that their apple products struggle with adobe flash but it's an apple problem, for not supporting it, and nothing to do with FireCore. Maybe your comments would be better directed at apple, but i'd leave out the fact that you've jailbroke your aTV, just to be on the safe side!

Bought an apple tv today I got over dfu mode but when it tries to start the reboot it says the device is not compatable and when I go into itunes says its an iphone not an apple tv. Any suggestions??

Did you buy an appletv2 or appletv3? This is only supported on appletv2 which isn't sold any longer

When I download SeasOnPass 5.0 it goes thru ISPW loadding when it is finishing loadiing it goes to if you are experiecing problems with Apple TV you can restore its orginial setting by clicking restore instead of Itunr

I got error: Seasonpass was unable to retreive firmware details, please check your internet conection or firewall settings. Internet is on line, firewall turned off. What to do, please help?

I jailbroke my Apple TV (Black) and ATV flash along with XBMC. i cant seem to be able to stream movies (specifically avi.'s) from my Windows PC. Ive heard you may only stream by iTunes but avi.'s dont seem to be "allowed" to import to iTunes. All of the video converter's ive tried haven't worked. Any suggestions on what i may to simply steam an avi. movie file from my documents to my Apple TV?

download mp4 video files they work on itunes to stream vidoe

Alright what can you exactly do with Seas0npass? I know there's jailbreaks that allow you to watch TV and shit, but I wanna watch iTunes movies for free, will this do it for me?

whats your name? i know lots of jallalars?

Your an idiot !

And yet. . . You're.

Hi everybody,

I bought an ATV2 few days ago. I've tried to jailbreak it with the last Seas0nPass version but, it doesn't work with iOS 4.4.4 (3330). Is there a solution ? Maybe is it possible de downgrade the firmware to 4.4.4 (9A406a)? I think i can't use tiny umbrella because the firmware 4.4.4 (3330) is native. Please help me !

I have to apple tvs here with me, one was bought a year ago, and have never been jailbreaked, and the other one was bought this january, and also has never been jailbreaked. When i try to jailbreak them i keep getting this message: The Apple Tv could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build. Does anyone know what i should do???

throw them in the garbage

In case you didn't already get your answer te older firmware is no longer signed by apply so the restore now fails. There is also no jailbreak yet for the new atv firmware. Best you can do is wait for the next jailbreak. You will have to update your boxes as well which is simple enough.

check under the support page theres a way around it with total commander i have done 2 this way it works.

O.K I banged my head for 2 damn days with the same issues you all are having, I finally got it and have successfully jailbroke 2 atvs today(3/18/2012) you wanna know how I did it? I bet you do! send me 1,000,000,000 bux and I will be posting a youtube video most likely but for right now I will just explain it out the best I can.

1. Download ifaith
2. Dump your shsh blob (AND SAVE IT TO A VERY SAFE LOCATION!!!)
3. Once completed it will send you back to the beggining
4. Create a IPSW with iFaith from the SHSH blob you created
5. From here I tried to go to Snowbreeze and use the iFath restore not the simple mode and it created a Signed IPSW but I was unable to restore thru iTunes it just hung on preparing blah blah blah, So I restored the factory signed IPSW that iFaith had created and it restored without a problem! But no jailbreak as of yet.(I deleted the Snowbreeze signed IPSW that I had previously created)
6. I then connected it to the TV and set it up and unplugged it
7. Go into Snowbreeze and USE the iFaith mode NOT the simple mode and create a ISPW using the SHSH blob and when it is finshed it will load iTunes and you should be all set!

Make sure you follow the directions and put it into DFU mode when asked

You may be able to skip some steps, I tried and it didn't work but hey it might for you! It installs NitoTv but I had to shsh into the ATV 2 to install XBMC found on the apples and oranges website because it was missing a lot of sources.

This WILL work! if you have any problems let me know! BUT I HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU BACKUP THE SHSH USING iFAITH and restoring before you run Snowbreeze! After a fresh Restore with the iFaith signed firmware THEN hook it to your TV! After that Run Snowbreeze and create a new signed firmware using the iFaith mode not the simple mode and restore again with the Snowbreeze signed firmware.

I have a fix and so far have done 2 apple tvs one with 4.4.4 and one with 4.3 today(4/18/2012). I will upload the instructions in an hour or so. I have one more to do so I will do a step by step, I could probably do it now but I really don't want to miss a step. This is working 100%!!!! DO NOT UPDATE to 5.0 just let me finish this one up and when I do the last one I will write it step by step as I do it. Hang loose and you will be jailbroken before the night is over I PROMISE!!

anything yet?

Probably your problem is that Apple is not signing anymore the 4.x.x versions. If your atv is new, then I'm pretty sure you don't have your SHSH blobs, so there is no chance you can jailbreak it until a new exploit comes out for 5.0 version.

same issue as the last 2 guys - got a new atv2 has fw 4.4.3 (3330) go to run seasonpass and says 'this apple tv is not eligible for this version' HELP

i have an apple tv 2 running 4.4.4 (3330) yet when i start seasonpass it says this apple tv is not eligible for this verison but i connect a jailbroken apple tv same verison that ive done it starts downloading the firmware whats going on?

mine has the FC logo but not the music movies tabs etc.. only internet, computer and settings. someone please advise. thanks

Keep getting stuck on patching ram. Tried rebooting, and updating all software, but can't get past the patching ram screen.

Also tried looking for virtualPC plugin thing but no luck there either. At a complete loss.

My experience:

- I used a MBP to do the jailbrake. Go to the preferences pane and select Security & Privacy and i marked "Disable remote control infrared reciever". My laptop keeped going to sleep (Zzz) because of the remote.

- Furthermore i got an error after the DFU mode and restoring the Apple TV, so i reset the device first and made it update the software to the latest iOS version. Then i retried and it worked

- To het it in DFU indeed, use the power cable at first, then remove it.

This made my ATV jailbrake a breeze.. hope this helps.


Great job you're doing guys. Hate to bug, but how is it going with the unthered jailbreak ?

I can't get my device into DFU mode? running 4.4.4 using silver remote. Tried on MAC and on PC?

Noting seems to work i have tired releasing the button anything from 5 seconds right unto 20 seconds.

Is there something i'm missing?



I had the same issue and here is what I did.
To get it into DFU mode, plug it in to the wall to get power, plug in the Micro USB cable, hold the Menu and Play/Pause button for 7 seconds until it kicks in to DFU mode (you will see it detected on the computer) and then unplug the power cable only.

This worked for me, too!!!

Verified: DFU fix Windows 7 (64bit) by using power-cable in combination with micro-usb!

worked like a charm

OMG..thanks a lot!!!i been stuck at that waiting for dfu mode for a full day!!! i reset my apple tv so many f ing time! i didnt know what i was doing wrong!!! thanks a lot!!!

My OS is Windows XP
My firmware is 4.4.4
I followed all the steps and have an FC emblem in the bottom right corner of my screen but Apple still wants me to log in with a user Id. They still want to charge me for everything.

What's the next step?

Can anyone help me just jail broke my apple TV and installed aTV FLASH (BLACK). Worked perfectly, but when i disconnect the my apple TV from the power supply (because I had to put it in the living room). When i connected again to the power supply,on the screen it tells me to connect to i tunes.Why????

The instructions say when you disconnect the unit you have to re flash.

Tried it on 4.4.2 and get no video. Can't have a usb and hdmi plugged in at the same time. So that makes the tethered boot useless,

Dear Sirs

Do want to try this with my ATV1.
I have seen people did this with ATV1.

Unsure how to do this, shall do a factory reset to 3 0 1?
After factory reset, should I connect to itunes before trying this?

Thanx for any hints :)

i ave downloaded the latest version of Seasonpass for windows. but it can not run and shows the this error massage: To run this application, you first must to install on of the following versions of the NET Framework:V4.0.30319

Could you please advise what should i do to make it works?


Google framework v4.0 and download/install from Microsoft that will do it for you.

Go to the microsoft website and download .NET Framework 4

Hey guys i've figured out the script failure issue... also the dfu mode... its all to do with how you handle the device. Make sure you use the proper way to get into DFU mode. and secondly before Seasonpass runs its script it calls from itunes.. you must disconnect the power. But you must have the power in originally to reboot into dfu mode.. once it boots out.. pull the power and leave the usb in. email me if you have trouble.

i'm new to all this now i've jailbroke my apple tv2 with firecore seasonpass what can i do with it what are the benefits can someone be so kind to give me the low down thanx.

well i will say thanks, it did take me 2 or 3 times to work , but all good now, got all the apps on that i can get, apple tv is the BEST thank seas0nPass and all the staff that worked on this big thank you, ps should show all the things u can do and put on ,if only by a links. ................................

It is taking forever to Unzip the file after downloading from Apple. It´s not working here. Any special reason?
