Apple TV (2010) Jailbreak via SHAtter

Looks like Apple TV (2010) can indeed be Jailbroken via the SHAtter exploit just like any other iOS 4.x device to date. Keep in mind the image above is just a tease and the Jailbreak hasn't been packaged for the masses yet, nor have we heard of any Apple TV-centric Jailbreak apps or extensions yet, but we can dream, right?

What's on top of your list? Xvid and MKV streaming? Hulu Plus? Safari web browser? Let us know here or in our brand spanking new Apple TV Forum.

Apple TV (2010) Jailbreak via SHAtter shown off


I received mine last night and have not spent a great deal of time with it but Hulu Plus & Safari web would be nice. Would have been nice to be able to plug my external drive directly to the box.

It would be nice to see slingplayer do some updates to support this along with the iPad and ios4 but I won't hold my breath

MKV from external.
Why wouldn't this be done out of the box. I just don't understand it.
Guess it's Roku

Can an external hardrive be hooked up via the USB in the back? Is there Bluetooth on it or not??

@aaron: you'll pay $99 for the AppleTV and then hack it, potentially killing the warranty, yet you have a problem paying $0.99 on a rental?

NETFLIX, and Standard HULU (not Plus), which would require a Safari Browser. OR just an app to provide VeeBeam functionality, wirelessly pull anything off my MacBook.

I enjoy you because of your whole hard work on this web site. Gloria take interest in setting aside time for internet research and it is easy to understand why. We all hear all concerning the powerful ways you create worthwhile thoughts via the blog and even increase response from other individuals on the area of interest so our girl is being taught so much. Take advantage of the rest of the new year. You have been conducting a good job.
