Hit the jump for more details and to download S0wbreeze 2.9.6…
Sn0wbreeze 2.9.6 supports Apple TV 2 on iOS 5.0.2 and yes, it is an untethered jailbreak. Sn0wbreeze, like any other jailbreak tool, does NOT support Apple TV 3. The 3rd Gen Apple TV jailbreak can only be achieved if hackers find a low level exploit in A5(X) processor.
What is New?
Added 5.0.2/9B830 Apple TV 2 untether payload. (Thanks @planetbeing & @nitoTV)
Apple TV 2 users can now resize their root partition.
As stated many times in the past, sn0wbreeze cannot be updated to work on A5(X) devices until a low level exploit in DFU or iBoot is found and made public. Therefore, A5(X) users will have to rely on using the lovely absinthe.
A5(X) Baseband Preservation/Hacktivation?
For those running A5(X) devices and need to preserve your baseband, there is nothing you can do at the moment. For those wanting to hacktivate, the only advice I can give is to buy the carrier’s SIM (the one its locked to obviously) on ebay. The SIM does not have to be active with the carrier to activate the phone.
