FireCore updating Seas0npass to support 5.2 [6.1] for Apple TV 2 coming soon!

By : Jordan Lawrence posted on February 12, 2013

We just got word from the FireCore team that they’re hard at work.

The team is currently working on integrating the latest evasi0n exploit into their SeasonPass Jailbreak Tool.

This latest SeasonPass update will add jailbreak support for the latest Apple TV 2 firmware 5.2(iOS 6.1).

‘Hey all, we’re hard at work on an updated version of Seas0nPass that takes advantage of the Evasi0n jailbreak and plan to have this available soon.

Please keep in mind that while the FireCore plugins will work on Apple TV 5.1, a few minor adjustments (which are currently in progress) are needed to ensure things continue to run smoothly on Apple TV 5.2. Things like Plex and XBMC do not yet work on Apple TV 5.1 and later, and will likely require A LOT of work by their respective developers in order to be compatible.’

5.2 [6.1] on the Apple TV is Jailbreakable using the Sn0wbreeze tool, but as stated with FireCore, and ourselves, many packages are still no compatible.

aTVFlash (black) seems to be almost ready for 5.2, but like seas0npass but there is still a lot of work ahead for the devs of the other Apple TV plugins/Software to bring the whole package together.

If you do wish in updating your Apple TV 2nd Gen and Jailbreaking it, we have a full tutorial on how you can do this here .

We will let you know once any of the Apple TV’s plugins/Tweaks have been updated and ready to use on 5.2 [6.1], so stay tuned!

(Something you may not know is that Apple is still signing 5.0.2, this meaning you can still downgrade your Apple TV without having saved blobs!! We cannot guarantee how long this window will be open though.)Smile
