    Default Best Jailbreak for Apple TV2 4.3

    Hey everyone, I just purchased an Apple TV2 and it has firmware 4.3. What is the best jailbreaking software? I have tried greenpois0n and seas0npass, both of which went through everything flawlessly saying things were complete. I also made sure to wait the 40 seconds with greenpois0n and all the other tricks. But when I plug it into my TV nothing has changed, there is no "greenpois0n" menu or "seas0npass" menu. Should I revert back to a previous 4.3 firmware? I tried installing 4.2.1 but it said my device wasn't compatible with it.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated,

    Terry

    I should clarify, is there a jailbreak for Appletv2 4.3 8F455. After reading extensively it appears no one has caught up to this update yet. Does anyone have any information as to when or how long it usually takes teams to come out with a jailbreak after an update has come out?

    Hey everyone, sorry to even have bothered everyone with this. I seemed to have solved my problem myself. For those of you who are looking to Jailbreak their Apple TV 2 from the newest firmware (8F455), Seas0nPass released an update Seas0nPass Updated for AppleTV 4.3 | FireCore on the 19th of August for this firmware. The only thing is the "Seas0nPass" menu doesn't appear on your AppleTV after it is jailbroken and this is what caused me confusion. But after the program runs and your apple tv restores itself with the new ipsw file, your apple tv is jailbroken and you can go ahead and start installing apps.

    I purchased my apple tv2 yesterday and jailbroke it as soon as i got home. I had to download the 4.3 8F355 ipsw file in order to get it to work and i used sn0wbreeze and it worked fine.

    As far as I know most jailbreaking software doesn't install nitoTV, except for greenpois0n. There are tutorials everywhere on how to install it via ssh. It's only a few lines of code in terminal. I can't imagine jailbreaking being any easier than with seas0npass, but from the sounds of it most of them are quite similar.

    hey guys, I am having a problem!

    I downloaded Greenpois0n R6 for my Mac.
    The first few times I did it, it would say jailbreaking and then the program would quit and ask if I wanted to restart it, so I did and it continued until it said complete.. weird right?

    Well I reset my comp and everything and now it works but everytime now that I jailbreak it it says complete without doing that funky program quite/restart thing, but nothing comes up on my apple tv.

    Also, my itunes doesnt detect or atleast show apple TV in the devices column, it it obviously hooked up because I can homeshare and control them both, but its not popping up, because I was going to do a fullbody restore from my itunes for atv to see if it helped.

    Anyways, idk what the hell to do,
    help??
