iPhone Dev-Team member MuscleNerd has confirmed today that the SHAtter Exploit which was founded by the Chronic Dev-Team’s member Pod2G is capable of Jailbreaking the New Apple TV and will work on it. Apple TV which also runs on the iOS 4.1 if ever jailbreaked through SHAtter will be quite amazing.
It’s looking like SHAtter is going to be the gift that keeps on giving. Even though the new AppleTV isn’t yet in people’s homes, the firmware is available on Apple’s normal public distribution servers and SHAtter has been used to decrypt its keys! The main filesystem (“Mojave8M89.K66OS”) key for 018-8609-066.dmg is:
If you’re familiar with vfdecrypt, you can use that key to decrypt the image and mount it. If you do so, feel free to use the comments section to discuss what you discover there (And of course, thanks @pod2g!)Advertisement
Being a bootrom exploit, Apple can only patch it by releasing a revised version of the hardware when the SHAtter exploit would go public. So getting the iOS deceives soon will be better to make sure you get the older exploitable hardware.
Those interested in *potential* AppleTV JBs, better to buy early! Remember iPhone3GS hardware was updated to fix JB hole
