In this post i will show you have to make Untethered Jailbreak on ATV2 4.4.4 and install XBMC Media Center on it
Here is what you need:
- Download the latest version of Seas0nPass.
- A micro USB cable. ( I use a Nokia cable ).
- a SSH Application.
– Mac user “Terminal”
– Windows users “Putty“
The Jailbreak Part:
Step 1: Unzip Seas0nPass zip file and launch Seas0nPass.
Step 2: Select the “Create IPSW” button.
Step 3: It will now download the latest ATV2 IOS (4.4.4) and make the custom jailbreak file.
Step 4: When prompted, connect your ATV2 to your Mac/PC using a micro-USB cable (leave power cable disconnected).
When the light on the front of the ATV2 begins to flash rapidly, point the remote at the ATV2 and hold both the MENU and PLAY/PAUSE buttons for 7 seconds.
Step 5: Itunes will open and restore your ATV2 with the new custom IOS file.
Step 6: iTunes will confirm the restore when complete – your ATV2 is now jailbroken!
The XBMC Part:
Open Terminal and type the following command to login to your ATV2
Password is alpine
Open Putty and enter your ATV2 Ip Address and click “Open”
Password is alpine
Step 2: Copy these commands in to your terminal window.
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
echo “deb http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/atv2 ./” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbmc.list
apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2
Step 3: Now you have XBMC on your ATV2, Now we just have to Disable Auto Updates from Apple.
Login to your ATV2 again as we did in Step 1, and run those commands:
apt-get install nano
Save the changes(ctrl-x)
Thats it! Enjoy your new Media Center!
