While you can do a tethered jailbreak of Apple TV Software 4.4 and 4.4.1, users will find themselves unable to install XBMC. Now thanks to a fix discovered it’s very easy to get XBMC working again on your Apple TV.
Once you’re up and running and have done a tethered boot, you’ll need to SSH into your AppleTV using Terminal on OS X or something like Putty on Windows. The default password is “alpine”. Enter the below commands exactly:ssh [email protected]
mkdir -p /private/var/Applications
mv * /private/var/Applications
ln -s /private/var/Applications /Applications
apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-seatbeltunlock
dpkg -i xbmc-20111116-57ba0cb-master-atv2.deb
If you get dependency errors issuing the command apt-get install -f should fix it.
That’s it! Let me know if you have any problems.
Also please note that Seas0nPass is not yet compatible with 4.4.2 that Apple just released, so hold off on updating! Seas0nPass is now compatible with 4.4.2.
