Citing the project’s official GitHub page, the Blackb0x jailbreak fills an important niche by setting its sights on older táo apple TV models such as second & third-generation units running various versions of tvOS. The tư vấn is a little complicated, which is why we’ll be outlining that in more detail below.

Perhaps the first thing you’ll notice about the Blackb0x jailbreak tool is that it’s macOS-based:


The Blackb0x jailbreak is untethered for some táo khuyết TV hardware và firmware combinations và tethered for others. The GitHub page outlines the following device và firmware version combos as supported, along with whether they’re untethered or tethered:

In case you’re unfamiliar with untethered và tethered jailbreaks, we have a full post outlining the differences. Briefly, an untethered jailbreak remains after a reboot, while a tethered jailbreak requires users khổng lồ connect to a computer to lớn fully reboot the jailbroken device.

The GitHub page notes that the hãng apple TV device you jailbreak must be connected lớn the mạng internet during the first bootie sequence. Furthermore, the apple TV you jailbreak shouldn’t be powered down until Kodi appears, as this indicates the jailbreak’s completion. The nitoTV extension will be installed automatically after the awkwardTV repository comes back online.

The process to jailbreak a supported táo apple TV varies from one device to lớn another:

If you have an táo bị cắn TV 4K, và not one of the supported models above, then checkra1n would be your best bet for jailbreaking it.
