Bad news for the Apple TV 3 - Dannydeman - 2012-03-19

Seems that jailbreaking will be very difficult. I honsetly believe Apple did this because of XBMC. It's a problem for there payed-service, and they don't want people to pay 100 dollars for a device where they won't pay for any content (which is where they will take the most of their profits).

Irony: Apple's least expensive iOS device (yesterday's new AppleTV3,1) will likely be the most secure of the bunch

Sad to hear since we will likely have to wait before we see a jb for it. However im sure one will come, IT always do Wink

Quote:...will likely be the most secure of the bunch

And which ones haven't been cracked?



RE: Bad news for the Apple TV 3 - Dannydeman - 2012-03-19

Thethered jailbreak, for sure. Unthethered will be a problem. Took a while before the original A5 processor was finally jailbroken. Seems the A5X they use in the new iPad is a much easier case, since they already jailbroke it (fully). Why on earth did they make this single-core A5 so secure, and didn't use the same security in the new iPad's processor?

Ah well, eventually there'll be a hole somewhere. But don't expect it anytime soon.

Doesn't the ATV3 has an A5 CPU? Maybe the holes aren't in the CPU but in content of the OS.

Was there any doubt?


RE: Bad news for the Apple TV 3 - xbs08 - 2012-03-21

Really hope they find a way in soon.

I may be being thick but I don't get what the progress is from that screenshot that firefore posted :S


RE: Bad news for the Apple TV 3 - aptalca - 2012-03-21

lol I have the same exact question deanmv

it looks to me like a stock appletv gui screenshot (I do not own any version of the apple tv, so I am guessing)

As opposed to stock 5.1 iOS FW it has weather and last fm?


Re: Bad news for the Apple TV 3 - Jaken - 2012-03-21

Reading more of their tweets. I think they only refere to the release of the atv. Undecided
