Hi peeps! I want to talk about the most up to date, best working jailbreak for Apple TV – all models, 1,2,3,4 AND all other apple devices! Unsure of why you should jailbreak yours? Honestly, there are lots of reasons.
Update: May 05, 2017
Due to the complications in getting a lasting Kodi on apple devices, I firmly believe the much simpler solution is to purchase an android device and set that apart for Kodi. Android devices are very efficient and as low as $30 bucks. With Kodi on android, you will get speedy updates, more support and tutorials and easy setup. I, an iOS user personally think it is not worth the time to constantly loading Kodi on my apple devices. Most free methods to load Kodi to iOS devices will only last a short period, while on android it last forever. Kodi is also on Google Play Store so you will get auto updated when a new version is out.
If you decide to go android, please use my app, Configurator for Kodi to setup your Kodi on android in 1 click. Easy setup with literally no hassle nor migraines. One click does the trick!
Anyway, if you want to continue the struggle with iOS, then please proceed!
After you jailbreak your Apple TV you have the freedom to:
Get Kodi. Say goodbye to cable payments! Stream from tons of new sources, including those that Apple doesn’t want you to know about!
Open and play file types that are unavailable on a non-jailbroken TV, such as .AVI, .MKV and more
Use various USB devices with your ATV
Get more use of your iPhone or iPad by using it as a HD remote control for your Apple TV
Surf the web with a browser on your Apple TV
Quickly download subtitles for all of your favorite movies and shows
Below, I will list solutions that will jailbreak your Apple TV automatically, meaning all you have to do is simply download the software and the program does the rest for you in a matter of a few minutes. The people who created the software keep it up to date to ensure that the latest versions are always available to you. Plus, when you buy the jailbreak for one device, you can jailbreak all of your other iDevices at no additional cost. That means you get to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, etc. too and you only have to pay for the software once!
All of these sites feature jailbreaks for iPads and iPhones because they are the most popular sellers, but they also have Apple TV jailbreaks! Don’t worry, they are there. The one on the iJailbreakpro site, for example, is hidden at their pricing page.
How the Apple Jailbreaking Process works:
The process is very easy with the solutions I will list. Just install the program on your computer and connect your computer and Apple TV with a USB cord. Let the jailbreak program run on your computer – and that’s it! There are instructions to guide you and customer support is available if you have any questions or get stuck. That’s all there is to it!
If you’re serious about jailbreaking your Apple TV – don’t try to be a hacker and do it all alone. I’ve done it before with the first Apple TV I had and it was a huge hassle. Enough to say that you run the risk of losing all the data on your ATV – including all your apps and history. Using one of the following solutions gives you peace of mind, and it’s guaranteed to work!
The Best Jailbreaks for Apple TV
These are my two top picks, in order.
Number #1- iJailbreakpro (Editor’s top Apple TV jailbreak)
No doubt this is the fastest and best jailbreak software available to jailbreak the Apple TV. The jailbreak takes less than 5 minutes to complete! Not to mention the whole process is completely reversible should you change your mind for any reason, and risk free! I could not ask for more!
I recently used iJailbreakpro to jailbreak the latest generation Apple TV that I just bought AND my old Apple TV, which is now in my son’s room. It was quick and easy and I had no problems with either TV. Plus I did jailbreaks on my iPhone and iPad and didn’t have to pay anything additional. Fantastic bonus there!
iJailbreak Pro really showed me they had great customer support too. I did have one technical question – I just missed something that was in the instructions. I ended up reaching out to customer support. They were really great and answered my question in no time.
I learned a lot from the support staff about how to get the best use of my iDevices. They assured me that they were there to help anytime I needed them. The guy who runs the site really cares about helping people get the maximum enjoyment of their iDevices! Excellent service!
So in the end I got the fastest jailbreak, and awesome customer support. These guys certainly impressed me. And the best part, they provided better service than sites I have used in the past, but I didn’t have to come out of pocket with more money! I rate them 9.5 out of 10. Check out their site here.
Number #2- Jailbreak Unlock
I have used this site a couple of times on older Apple TV ios versions. I can’t wholeheartedly recommend them. The jailbreak does work, but it takes a bit longer, like 15 minutes or so, for the jailbreak to complete. They actually were my top choice before I found iJailbreak Pro, but why go with second best, right?
Using this software did present a couple of concerns for me, mainly:
These guys didn’t seem too up to date on Apple TV. I recently saw that they actually don’t even publish the ATV jailbreak anymore, though the info is still available for members. To me it screams not enough customers or expertise to keep the ATV jailbreak going, and of course that means they may end up not supporting it in the future (like a lot of other sites wound up doing). I wouldn’t want to be stuck without updates for future iOS versions.
Customer support was just not on a level that I would expect. They had a phone number, but when I called I couldn’t get an answer. All I could get was a recording that told me to email them for customer support. Really, I don’t see the point in listing a phone number if it only directs you back to email. And when I did email these guys, it took until late the next day before I ever heard back from them. If I am paying for a service, I want it now, not tomorrow or when you decide to get around to it!
All in all this site isn’t absolutely terrible. The software does work and the directions are simple. They are a decent fallback if iJailbreak Pro is unavailable. I mean, at least it works right? I rate them 7 out of 10.
To Sum it up
Right now these are the only sites doing jailbreaks for the Apple TV. There were others, but they didn’t stick around too long, instead they focused on the more popular jailbreaks for devices such as iPad and iPhone. My favorite Apple TV jailbreak is definitely iJailbreak Pro.
I am extremely happy now that I no longer pay for cable or satellite! An ATV box and internet connection are all I need to enjoy primewire.ag through Kodi on my HDTV!
Thanks for reading and happy jailbreaking!
