Happy Friday! Fridays are always a good time for progress updates so read on to see what we've been up to over the past few weeks.
We're working fervently to complete a Windows version of Seas0nPass. Assuming no unexpected issues come up this version will be available within the next 1-2 weeks in early February. Like its Mac based counterpart this will also be a freely available, open-source application.
Thanks to some exceptional work from Scott Davilla and the XBMC Team a full version of XBMC is now available for the 2nd gen AppleTV. XBMC acts as a replacement for the AppleTV menus, though you can easily switch back and forth between XBMC and AppleTV whenever you please. With aTV Flash (black) installed, XBMC can be easily downloaded through the Maintenance --> Manage Extras menu.
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.
We're pleased to announce, thanks to Remote HD, the 1st gen AppleTV is now able to act as an AirPlay compatible device! With Remote HD installed all the amazing features of AirPlay for the new black AppleTV are now available on the original silver models.
