Limera1n Can Jailbreak the Apple TV

No comments:



Erica Sadun has confirmed that she was able to jailbreak her Apple TV with Limera1n; however, it does not install OpenSSH at this time, so not much can be done with it.

The Limera1n page has updated to indicate that Apple TV jb is "technically supported". I can confirm that I put my ATV2 into DFU mode and was able to "jailbreak" it. But since no AFC services or OpenSSH were installed (let alone APT), there's nothing that really can be done with it at this time.

We'll let you know when the jailbreak is updated to install OpenSSH.

How to Update Your iPhone 4 Without Upgrading the Baseband (Mac)

4 comments:

This tutorial will show you how to upgrade your iPhone 4 to iOS 4.1 without upgrading its baseband using TinyUmbrella for Mac. We recommend reading the TinyUmbrella Read Me located here before doing anything. The Windows version of this tutorial is here.

Please Note: This ONLY Works with the iPhone 4!

Step One
Download TinyUmbrella from here Also make sure to download the iPhone 4 iOS 4.1 Firmware locatedhere


Step Two
Double click the downloaded Umbrella.dmg file to mount it. Drag the Umbrella app from the mounted dmg into your Applications folder. Then double click the Umbrella app to launch it.






If asked enter your administrative username and password.


Step Three
Make sure the device is connected, and Umbrella has detected the type of device and its firmware.


**If you haven't already saved your SHSH blobs then click Save My SHSH.

Step Four
Hit Start TSS Server and make sure you receive no errors.


Once The TSS Server is "running" successfully, umbrella will kill iTunes. Leave TinyUmbrella Open.


If you do receive an error, DO NOT continue. Your restore will not work if the TSS server cannot be started.

Step Five
Open iTunes and Hit Shift+ Restore.


Browse to and select the iPhone 4.1 Firmware File.


Hit OK to Restore iPhone


Step Six
iTunes should give you error 1004. This is what we wanted, as it notes the baseband has not updated :)

Step Seven
Go back to the TinyUmbrella window and Click Kick Device Out of Recovery


*If you have issues here, try closing and re-opening TinyUmbrella.

Your iPhone will now be on 4.1 with the 1.59.00 baseband! (Which means you can now unlock usingthis tutorial)


**Thanks to semaphore for his work on this tool
