Team Pangu announced the jailbreak for Apple TV 4. We are talking about the first tool for hacking the Apple TV set-top box, which debuted in late 2015. About the upcoming release of the exploit the hackers wrote on Twitter.
In his microblog Pangu writes:
“Next week we will release a jailbreak for the Apple TV 4 (9.0.x). It will access the device via SSH”, – stated in the message of the developers. They noted that this is a preliminary version of the tool intended for jailbreak developers and experts of IT security.
A concept such as “Apple TV jailbreak” users have not heard for many years. Latest tools for hacking are only available for devices of the second generation. Apple TV 3G has never been hacked. But Pangu easily succumbed to the fourth generation of devices that are running “OSes” tvOS.
We will remind, on Friday, the team Pangu has released jailbreak for iOS 9.1. Pangu version 1.3 runs on Windows and Mac platforms and allows you to crack any 64-bit models of Apple devices. Unfortunately, it is not the newest version of the OS, so for many users this exploit is not relevant.
