Apple TV Jailbreak Updated for 5.2 Software, Third-Generation Model and Some Plug-ins Still Unsupported




Apple TV's latest update -- version 5.2 -- was originally released back in January with Bluetooth Keyboard support and a number of other features.

Today, FireCore released updated versions of aTV Flash (black) and its Seas0nPass jailbreaking app.

The app jailbreaks any second-generation Apple TV unit with the 5.2 software installed, but the jailbreak for the third generation Apple TV released in March 2012 remains missing in action. As such, second-generation Apple TV units can fetch a premium on the secondary market.

Full list of changes

- NEW! Added support for Apple TV 5.2 and Bluetooth keyboards
- Minor improvements to backups
- Minor improvements to DVD playback
- A handful of other bug fixes and improvements
There is one important note, however -- depending on how users choose to use their jailbroken Apple TV, some may want to wait on upgrading. Firecore adds an important note at the end of their update mentioning that "some 3rd party plugins such as Plex, Remote HD, Rowmote, and XBMC are not yet compatible with the 5.1+ Apple TV software."

Users who do wish to upgrade should head to FireCore's website for walkthrough instructions.

It's really sad that the 2nd gen can go for twice the cost of the 3rd gen.

You mean the Atv3 is crap without a jailbreak.

I guess hackers just aren't what they used to be. Not very talented these days.

I was actually about throwing mine away until I checked eBay because of the Comments here. Thanks for the 200 USD, guy!

Yeah, I guess hackers are not what they used to be... ;p

Yeah, I'll happily trade my non-jailbroken ATV2 for ATV3 and $100. Win win since I don't jailbreak.

Unfortunately the Apple TV is useless to me until it supports all media formats like my WDTV Live does.

Which is a real shame as I think an ATV with apps could be really exciting.
