Seas0nPass Cuts the Cord for 4.4.4

Happy New Year! Today we are happy to release an updated version of Seas0nPass that supports an untethered jailbreak of the latest 4.4.4 (iOS 5.0.1) AppleTV software. Big thanks goes to the world famous @pod2g for doing the lion's share of the work to make this new version possible.

What's new in AppleTV 4.4.4?

  • AirPlay Mirroring: Now with video mirroring – wirelessly stream what’s on your iPad 2 screen to your HDTV.
  • Photo Stream: View photos recently taken on your iOS device and pushed to your Photo Stream in iCloud.
  • Trailers: A whole new way to browse and view hundreds of the latest theatrical trailers.

Why is SSH not working on this jailbreak. I can't load any extras. I am not the only one with the problem. FireCore what do we do? Every time I try it comes up with "Connection refused". Seems to be a widespread problem. Doing the usual way of SSH,

hi,

i see u made a little mistake. u wrote:
ssh -l 192.168.2.108

as stated in usage for ssh command -l option is for username. in this case "root". so the command shoud be:
ssh -l root 192.168.2.108
or
ssh

I had previously JB my ATV2 with xbmc and flash black. I wanted to clean it up a bit and so i restored it to factory setting. It says i am running 4.4.4 (3330). I tried to JB it again, but it doesn't seem to be working. I am using the same file i used last time. Has there been a change in the apple softwear that would stop it from working? Anyone else with this issue?

ATV running at 4.4.4. and latest version of Season pass. Everything seemed to go successfully until I connected the ATV to my TV. Firecore red logo is there, but I don't have any additional menus. Any ideas?? Thanks.

I forgot to install the ATV Black 1.3 software doh!! Sorry! :)

Firmware version 4.4.4 and updated to the 1.3 version of the Firecore software. Everything seemed to go fine. Connected the ATV to my TV got the red FC logo but non of the additional menus. What can be wrong? Thanks in advance.

Two questions where does the backup backup too? and is there a way to make the fastforward and rewind jump 15 sec like what xbmc does. cuz the rewind/fast is painfully slow.

Im trying to download seas0npass but getting message that "You cannot use this version of the application Seas0npass with this version of Mac OS X. My Mac OS is 10.5.8 and ATV2 4.4.4. Pls advise what I should do. Thanks.

I'm sorry to break it to you, but you will need to upgrade OSX Wink

I could be wrong, 10.5 is not supported by Apple anymore. Are you on PowerPC ?

Hi there,

After following all available instructions, I cannot stop getting ERROR 11. For iphones, that's the error that you get if you don't remove the bbfw file, but on apple tv ipsw's that doesn't exist.

Any ideas?

i did all the procedure...but when i connect my apple tv to my television to test it...its asking me to put my itunes account...how come i thought it is free...

That is part of the base OS. You need to input it in order to activate homesharing and (I think) AirPlay.

Hello i just tried to jailbreak but I can't perform to the DFU mode.
I tried 10 times but nether get the apple tv to this DFU mode.

ah yes, I've JB many ATV's and there are some "types" that just will not go into DFU mode BUT i did find a way, before you do anything JB related, plug it into the pc/mac and open iTunes, then do a normal restore, when it is almost done unplug it, (iTunes) might freak out but just quit it test it by plugging it in your tv, if you get an iTunes logo saying "this ATV is in DFU mode, please plug it into iTunes" or words to that effect, then you are ready, just follow all the steps that fire core give you and in the step it asks you to put the ATV in DFU mode then just plug it in and it will run by itself, good luck

I did all the steps, when I start apple TV I dont see the movies, if i choose a store then I will see them and I have to put my apple ID :(

Hi all .. updated my media player and now I cant get the thing to stay on !

Disable the Auto update. Google "atv Disable update" and you'll find hos to do it.

Hey so I ran the update and it went fine. I've been using this new JB and XBMC for a few days now and my ATv is stuck on the home screen. No matter what I do to reboot it via SSH, holding down MENU and (-) and even just unplugging it and plugging it back in, it wont respond.

Anyone know how I can get this to work?

Okay I'm kind of silly but I thought I'd share my solution.

Just unpair the remote then pair it again and it works:

UNPAIR:
hold MENU and (+) for 6 seconds
(the screen will show a funky icon in the upper left corner)

PAIR:
hold MENU and (-) for 6 seconds
(another funky icon will show in the upper left corner)

Now it should work... and man, I can't tell you how awesome it is to have this update UNtethered... I feel like a real person again. (I use my aTV everyday and when it poops out and I have to tether boot it, that really ruins the mood of the room)

thanks!

For the record it does start up fine, but once its in the home page its just stuck on "Movies>Top Movies" and it doesn't respond to the apple remote.

It sounds like the disk might be full.
try ..
df -k
if the /private/var directory is ~99%, then you have a problem.

Locate the big file directories by ...
#!/bin/sh
# Disk Utilization larger than a Gig.
du -h / |grep "G "

Note: the spaces after the G should a single TAB and not spaces.

Example Results:
2.0G /private/var/log
3.2G /private/var
3.2G /private
3.5G /

I have syslogd installed and does not properly rotate the syslog file.

Jailbroke AppleTV successfully (again) and installed XBMC no problems! Awesome work guys.. thanks!

Xbmc is now crashing, something is up?

yeah i'm noticing the XBMC will crash here and there.

but this untehtered JB is AWESOME!!! tytytytytytyty

Yea i think it has something to do with the megaupload site being terminated :-( :-(

Any one else having problems with the Airplay Mirroring once jailbroken? Mirroring seems to work just fine on stock firmware, but once jailbroken, mirror works for a couple minutes then just refuses to work. Any ideas? Thanks.

I have a similar issue in that Airplay on ATV2 worked just fine before it was jailbroken - now Airplay doesn't seem to work at all. I will note that once jailbroken, units on wireless network have not worked well, that said, units plugged in (cat 5) seem to work fine.

Unsure what's causing it.

ok so I downloaded seas0npass installed it and "created" the ipsw. when it tries to unzip it gives me a decrypting ramdisk and at the same time a black boz opens up owngwtool or something like that then the decrypting ramdisk box closes then shortly after the blak box closes as well. what am i doing wrong? the next step shopuld be for me to connect the microusb to complete the jailbreak.....but im stuck here...

any help????

help!! i have upgraded to 4.4.4, i was able to jailbreak it successfully and was able to watch addons on xbmc but the very next day i am not able to play any addons from xbmc, i have an ip address and im getting script.error msg...

You must plug the power cord in

PLEASE HELP, I have successfully jailbroken my apple tv 2 with 4.4.4 untethered a few times. Each time i get the red "FC" logo in the bottom right, which by the instructions, confirms that it was jailbroke successfully. Yet when i try to SSH it says connection timed out or another error and when i research that issue i always get the answer that its not jailbroken if u cant find it in SSH(which ive tried thru terminal on mac and the duck one on windows). So am i supposed to just jailbreak it over and over untill it finds it in SSH? i feel like i must be doing something wrong because i dont see other people with same issue really, but i get the FC logo that confirms it.

maybe you're not entering you appleTV's IP address correctly, or your login or password is not entered correctly. if you're timing out, i would guess that you've entered the wrong IP address.

So glad this is finally updated. I'm tired of having to skip through the "Update Software" screen on my AppleTV. Thanks for all the work you guys do.
