A jailbreak was announced for Apple TV

The hacker team palera1n announced a jailbreak for Apple TV set-top boxes. So far, the cracked firmware only works on the first-generation Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K models. It is planned to add compatibility with new generations in the future.

It is noted that the firmware is relevant for tvOS from 15.0 to 17.4. Users will be able to install tweaks and third-party apps, including those not published in the App Store. On the screenshots shared by the authors of the jailbreak, you can see the Trollstore icon – a utility for installing unofficial IPA files. But Trollstore also works on stock firmware, it does not need a jailbreak for this.

The Spartan program is used as a file manager, which is completely written in Swift. The code of the utility itself is open and published on GitHub. Spartan supports all the basic functions of a regular file manager.

The developers of the jailbreak have not yet announced the release date of the firmware.
