Seas0nPass aims to make Apple TV jailbreaking a breeze

Jailbreaking your Apple TV may have just got easier with FireCore’s Seas0nPass.

Remember the hack for the Apple TV that allowed you to use Last.FM and browse the web? The guys over at FireCore are back with a whole new free hack, this time aimed at simplifying the jailbreaking process for the second-generation Apple TV.

FireCore claims that Seas0nPass is an open-source, easy-to-use method of adding IPSW files to the Apple TV, so it can also be of use if you've already jailbroken your AppleTV. However, you will need a micro USB handy you'll have to tether your Apple TV to a computer in order to perform the hack.

Need to undo the jailbreak? Seas0nPass will let you restore your AppleTV to factory settings via iTunes--making it as though the hack never was. Sneaky. But don't attempt to install Seas0nPass on any other Apple device, as it won't work.

Keep in mind that Seas0nPass is still very new and may have a few bugs that need straightening out, so as will all hacks, proceed at your own risk.

As feedback on the company's blog suggests, although many users are content with the software's results, a lot of people are having problems when they reconnect the Apple TV to their sets (Did we mention it was brand new?). Hopefully, FireCore will get round to answering the questions and fixing the problem shortly.

If you know what you're doing and want to give it a try, check out FireCore's support page for the full instructions and download.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
