Can you jailbreak a 3rd gen apple tv just like the 2nd? I'm looking at buying one and want to know what's the best to buy???

Check out FireCore for updates on status of ATV3 jailbreak.

There has been no AT3 jailbreak and would be suspicious of anyone who claims they have (because there's been plenty of scams).

FireCore hasn't got a jailbreak for the ATV3 and pretty much never will. From what I recall they even refunded purchases after it became clear they couldn't deploy on the ATV3 so I wouldnt hold much hope. In part it's the reason that the ATV2 is selling at a premium (over the 3) on eBay etc.
