Apple has already released iOS 4.2.1 (8C154) for Apple TV 2G.On the other hand The developer behind NitoTV app for jailbroken 2nd-gen Apple TV has released an unofficial PwnageTool bundle which can jailbreak Apple TV 2G on the latest iOS 4.2.1 firmware with the existing version of PwnageTool.

iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak with Pwnagetool is also tethered. It means you have to connect your Apple TV 2G with PC and use Redsn0w or PwnageBundle to boot it.

Requirement:

# A MicroUSB cable
# iOS 4.2.1 for Apple TV
# PwnageTool 4.1.2

The steps are given below.

Step 1: Download PwnageTool, PwnageTool bundle for Apple TV iOS 4.2.1 firmware and Tetheredboot utility for Mac. Move PwnageTool to OS X’s Applications folder and everything else into a new folder named “tethered” on the desktop.

Step 2: Open Terminal app.

Step 3: Run the following commands (this will fail if you didn’t move this folder to the desktop, PwnageTool almost MUST be in your /Applications folder).

cp -r ~/Desktop/tethered/AppleTV2,1_4.2_8C150.bundle /Applications/PwnageTool.app/Contents/Resources/FirmwareBundles/

cp ~/Desktop/tethered/Info.plist /Applications/PwnageTool.app/Contents/Resources/CustomPackages/CydiaInstallerATV.bundle/Info.plist

Step 4: Run PwnageTool on the 4.2 ipsw (if you don’t know how to do this, again you REALLY shouldn’t be here) saving into the ~/Desktop/tethered folder with the default name PwnageTool gives it (AppleTV2,1_4.2_8C150_Custom_Restore.ipsw)

Step 5: Back in the terminal run the following:

unzip -j ~/Desktop/tethered/AppleTV2,1_4.2_8C150_Custom_Restore.ipsw Firmware/dfu/iBSS.k66ap.RELEASE.dfu kernelcache.release.k66 -d ~/Desktop/tethered/

Step 6: Restore the Apple TV to the ~/Desktop/tethered/AppleTV2,1_4.2.1_8C154_Custom_Restore.ipsw firmware using iTunes. Note: Your Apple TV SHOULD be in DFU mode after finishing up with PwnageTool.

Step 7: Unplug and then replug the USB, after the AppleTV has finished started up (will be blinking steadily), plug in the power cable

Step 8: Run the following commands in terminal:

cd ~/desktop/tethered

./tetheredboot -i iBSS.k66ap.RELEASE.dfu -k kernelcache.release.k66

Step 9: MANUALLY put the AppleTV in DFU (*DO NOT USE PWNAGETOOL*)

DFU Mode:

* Hold Menu for 7 Seconds

* Without releasing menu, press power for 7 seconds

successful output from tetheredboot looks like this:

Step 10:If all went well, unplug USB and plug in HDMI and your AppleTV should be ready to go. You will need to repeat 7-9 every time you restart your AppleTV, this isn’t a convenient process by any stretch!

Step 11: To get nitoTV installed

apt-get install wget

wget -O- http://apt.awkwardtv.org/awkwardtv.pub | apt-key add –

echo “deb http://apt.awkwardtv.org/ stable main” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list

apt-get update

apt-get install com.nito.nitotv
