    I got an iTV Gen 3 for free. I was wonder if there is anything I can do with it other what it can do outside the box?

    Can I Jail Break it? I don't know anything about the Apple iTV so this is all new to me.

    Thanks! :)

    "i" TV ??? Apple TV (atv) ver 3 has not been jail broken however, you can use it with PLEX by incorporating a third party app called Plexconnect.

    I know the second gen can be jail broken and can do sone pretty cool stuff.

    I don’t know about the 3rd gen, iirc, it cannot be jailbroken.

    Actually, I think the second gen is holding it’s value better than the 3rd due to this reason.

    Because other than being jailbroken, the 3rd gen is better in every other way.

    It's inside the box but you should be able to play Amazon Prime Video, having probably a much better user experience than with that crappy Fire TV Stick 2nd gen I have just bought because that's all Amazon is selling here in my Country..
