    Dear Users,

    I have been jailbreaking iphone and ipad for ages, however my friend recently gave me his Apple TV 2nd gen. I have absolutely no experience in jailbreaking this device. From googling this idea I have found 2 jailbreaks one Seas0nPass another one something else. Can you please recommend which one is better for this 2nd gen plus what kind of jailbreak tweaks and apps should I install?


    Thank you.

    I get error while trying to jailbreak with Seas0nPass. Itunes says preparing apple tv for restore for about 3-4 mins and then unable to restore. WTF?

    Finally managed to get it working, but I have come across one weird issue. How do i know that it is jailbroken? Usually there is a special icon on the panel, but I do not have it after I finished jailbreaking. WTF?

    Seas0nPass will show the icon when you have the Settings menu highlighted, IIRC.
