Jailbreak Apple TV 2 with Seas0nPass

You’ll need to Jailbreak your Apple TV 2 device before you’ll be able to install Kodi. Jailbreaking basically means opening up your device to software that isn’t endorsed by Apple, it’s perfectly safe (and reversable) and you won’t lose any of the device’s original functionality.

Required: Micro USB Cable & iTunes

Step 1: Download and Unzip the latest version of “Seas0nPass” to your computer, choose from the Mac Version or the Windows Version depending on your computer.

Step 2: Plug the Apple TV 2 into your computer with the “Micro USB Cable” only.

If you don’t see the light at the front of the device slowly flashing at this point, you’ll want to unplug it from the Micro USB Cable then plug in the Electrical Power Supply to the device for ten seconds, then unplug the the Electricity and replug the Micro USB Cable before continuing.

Step 3: Launch the “Seas0nPass” application you just downloaded in the first step.

Step 7: You’ll know it’s complete when you see the “Firmware restore successful!” notice displayed within the Seas0nPass application window, go ahead and press the “Done” button at this point.

Step 9: Plug the Apple TV into your television with the HDMI and power source connected. Turn your television on at this point and make sure the right “Input” is connected for the HDMI input you’re using.

Please Note: If nothing appears on your screen at this point and the front light is blinking fast, we suggest trying to restore the device in iTunes, then run Seas0nPass again. Should that still not work, try running Seas0nPass on a Windows PC instead of a Mac.

Step 10: Choose your desired language. We’re going to go with “English” for obvious reasons.

Step 17: You’ll probably want to go ahead and Install Kodi for Apple TV 2 at this point.

Congratulations! You probably don’t see much of a difference, but your device is now way more powerful and can do many, many things.
