Item Description




"How can I tell if my unit is jailbreakable?"

As above. So below. Flip your Apple TV upside down.  Beneath the Apple logo you will see a bunch of logos which includes the C E mark.  The serial number of your unit is below these logos.  It helps if you angle the unit towards outside daylight to see any text on the rear.

Above the logos are TWO lines of text.

The first line of text states:-

Designed by Apple in California   Assembled in China    Model A1378   EMC 2411  100-240V~ 50-60Hz  0.3A

If your unit says A1378 then it is a 2nd Generation.

and if your eyesight is not so good?

Switch on your Apple TV.

To check your version, go to Settings, General, About and note down the Apple TV Software, we can jailbreak any firmware but this listing shows what you will receive if you buy on this listing as other firmwares need additional work for which we make a charge.  If it is 6.0.2, we can currently jailbreak it but not if you purchase on this listing.

Please buy from our other listing.

We are specialists in jailbreaking Apple TV.  A lot of our competitors have no idea. We are not into slagging our competitors off.  This is FACT!

We have seen it time and time again in other sellers' listings that there is nothing complex about jailbreaking - now that Apple have stopped signing firmware files 5.2.1 and below, this has sorted the MEN from the BOYS!

If your unit meets the criteria set out in the listing you are safe to buy from us and send your unit.

If your unit says A1427 or A1469 then it is a 3rd Generation and IT IS NOT JAILBREAKABLE - DO NOT BUY ON THIS LISTING!


1) Check your unit model number as above. If your unit is Model A1378, proceed to Step 2 otherwise, DO NOT BUY!

2) Check the current firmware on your Apple TV! Switch it on and go to Settings>General>About. You will see Apple TV Software - this will be one of the unbracketted numbers below. Click Enter on your remote and you will then see OS Build Version - this is the number in brackets. We will restore your Apple TV to its current version BUT jailbroken.

If, for instance, your Apple TV is on a tethered firmware and we have the option to downgrade to an earlier version so it becomes untethered then we will contact you and offer you the option for an additional charge.  This is generally not possible unless it has been jailbroken at some point in its life.

3) Make payment via your chosen method. If you want to pay by credit card, please purchase and email us saying so.

4) Once paid, wait for us to email the address to send your Apple TV unit to for jailbreaking.DO NOT POST IT TO THE ADDRESS AT THE FOOT OF THE LISTING
OR TO THE ADDRESS GIVEN IN THE ORDER CONFIRMATION EMAIL YOU WILL RECEIVE IMMEDIATELY FROM EBAY ON CHECKOUT. Please include your Ebay User ID in the packaging. Without this, your unit will just sit in our stores until we can identify who it is from.PLEASE REMEMBER we have more than one customer requiring our jailbreak service at any one time as we advertise across several sales channels.

5) Once we receive your unit, we aim to process it within 1 working day of receipt and send it back out to you.

6) Please remember this is only a jailbreak service.  If you are not familiar with XBMC and require a 20 minute guided tour, please buy from our £70 jailbreak listing.  Our second-to-none support service can be purchased separately at a later time if you require.

"Why should I buy from Grumpy Greyhound, you don't seem to be the cheapest available on Ebay?"

Since when as the cheapest ever been the best?

We were the first to bring you XBMC Version 12.0 "Frodo" Final Stable Release (the minute it was announced on 29th January 2013)

WHY?  Because we are always one step ahead of the others and the game! Working in close quarters with XBMC and XBMCHUB gives us the edge of the majority of other sellers on Ebay!

"How do I know that you are not simply saying this?"

Don't take our word for it.  Look at our feedback which stands testimony to the facts.  Or why not take the plunge and buy from someone else - you can always send it to us to be redone when you're not satisfied with what you have bought.

Disclaimer regarding Included software:

This service is guaranteed to work and provide access to the online content. However, we cannot guarantee the quality or the actual content itself. We do not control any of the content for which the plugins and add-ons link to. The content is hosted on many different server farms on the internet. There will be times that certain links may not work, are broken, down or discontinued, At times sources can be unreachable due to maximum connections or simply because the source is unavailable either temporarily or permanently.

We highly recommend a wired Ethernet connection between the Apple TV and your router to ensure maximum bandwidth.  Whilst services can be streamed wirelessly, it is less reliable to do so.  It is our understanding that HD content requires approximately 8Mbps download speed.  Standard Definition requires only 2Mbps..

Note: All plugins rely on streaming internet content and you may need to set up free accounts on various websites to allow that content to be streamed.  For example, TVCatchup requires a user account as does Flash Sports Streams.  Most require good enough bandwidth and content available online to be able to work. Due to the nature of this item, we are not responsible for the content streamed to it and neither do we condone piracy so you must satisfy yourself that either you or the sites used for streaming have the copyright agreements in place and are entitled to use the content. You agree to absolve us of any liability in law.

From time to time, some plugins may sometimes crash / freeze.  If in doubt - contact us and we will confirm what works for us right now (assuming we use the same plugins) - we are changing configurations and applying the latest updates as they happen to get the best stability. Overall the stability is very good and the amount of free content out there is incredible having regard for the low price of the unit.

All units are fully tested as working as stand-alone units using Apple and iTunes content.  It is impossible for us (or anyone) to test every single plugin, link, repository, user list, content, TV show, Movie in XBMC as there is simply so much content on the internet that it would take a lifetime.

We are not responsible for:-

Your internet connection and associated routers and networking setup, any anti-virus programmes you may hve installed which may be blocking content, integrity of the plugins and repositories which enable content to be streamed, accessibility of services at any time, costs of upgrading to a more reliable streaming host (if required - this is YOUR decision alone!), configuration settings, proxy settings, the state of the economy either UK or Global, etceteras.

Full Returns Policy


We have your best interests at heart. We deal with all of our customers fairly, openly and without bias.

If you have changed your mind about the item or if you believe the item to be faulty, not as described or damaged in transit, you must communicate your intention to us via Ebay Messages within 14 calendar days of receipt of item. You must allow us a minimum of 3 working days to respond. At certain times of year when we are on annual leave, you will receive an automated response which will tell you the date we reopen for business. Please do not open a Buyer Protection Case unnecessarily and without recourse to us first. RETURNS: CHANGE OF MIND You must return the item unopened. The buyer is responsible for the cost of using an appropriate tracked postal service. You can either:- 1) Reject the delivery or if this is not possible, 2) follow the instructions below from Step 5). RETURNS: DEFECTIVE OR ITEMS RECEIVED NOT AS DESCRIBED. First of all, we want to reassure you. Please read this section in full before emailing us. Where listed as New: Other, Used or Refurbished, all the items we sell are thoroughly tested and inspected by our professional team of engineers prior to listing and again prior to dispatch. We do this because, as a business seller, we are responsible for the return postage costs and it doesn?t make sound business sense to throw money away on sending out faulty items. As part of our dispatch process, we may make a note of any serial number, IMEI or ICC ID codes and may mark Used or Refurbished items discretely to limit the amount of fraudulent buyer activity we are exposed to. However, very rarely, we do make mistakes. We see this as a natural part of human nature not some conspiracy as some may believe that they are being ripped off for £5 or even £400 for that matter. We are a professional business so please, if you have an issue, treat us with respect and as you yourself would wish to be treated. In the unlikely event of you receiving a defective item or an item significantly not as described, please contact us via Ebay Message in the first instance before opening a case. We require 1 working day to respond to any messages and you should only expect to receive a response during the normal office hours as displayed. In 99.9% of cases, over the past 6 years of trading, we found that user error made up the majority of return requests and we successfully assisted those customers in getting up and running. This is because we sell primarily electronic goods. In the odd case, we have even helped 'experts' with the problem they experienced. In one such case, a professional photographer claimed the item was faulty and only realised after they had paid the expensive return postage from Italy that they may have inserted the batteries incorrectly (which proved right). 3) Please contact us via Ebay messages stating why you wish to return the item. Please include a valid contact number so we can call you if necessary. We will reply to your email or call you within 1 working day. If we are unable to get a response from you, we will try to contact you again within 5 working days. 4) In the unlikely event that we are unable to resolve your issue after communicating with you, we will accept a return. Only once you have received a reply from us and failed to resolve your issue, can you please let us know. Once you have done this, go to Step 7. HOW TO RETURN AN ITEM TO GRUMPY GREYHOUND We will pay reasonable return postage costs (normally 2nd Class) and refund original P&P costs when the item is being returned because it's defective, isn't as described, or it was damaged in the post. In all other cases, the buyer will be responsible for paying the return postage. Under no circumstances, will we reimburse return postage in advance of receiving the item back. 5) Please contact us via Ebay messages stating why you wish to return the item. Please include a valid contact number so we can call you if necessary. We will reply to your email within 1 working day 6) We will issue you with a RMA number which must be clearly written on the outside of the packaging. 7) Once you have an RMA number from us, please return the item to:- Grumpy Greyhound Limited, Returns Department, c/o Alligator Storage Bath Street NOTTINGHAM NG1 1BZ 8) Once we receive the return, we may require up to 5 working days to process the refund as, in certain circumstances, we need to retest the item being returned.

Shipping T&C's


We want to set your expectations of purchasing from us by telling you a little bit about our working processes.


99.9% of items dispatched by us are received with the estimated delivery times advised by Ebay on each individual listing. Please contact us if you have not received your item and the estimated delivery time has passed.

Please do not rely on the general public's expectations regarding Royal Mail delivery.  1st and 2nd Class are not guaranteed services and carry no compensation for late delivery.  Only Special Next Day Delivery does.

Please review the following Royal Mail information if you are unsure:- 

In addition to Royal Mail's guidelines, we require 1 - 2 days dispatch time from receipt of payment.

Ebay provide you with an estimated date of delivery at the top of the listing.  We cannot guarantee the performance of companies outside of our control.

For more information on estimated delivery times, see here:-


If you want guaranteed delivery within 1 day, please upgrade to Express Delivery and complete your payment before 2pm. (Monday - Thursday).  If your payment is received after 2pm., whilst we will do our utmost to still dispatch the same day, although this cannot be guaranteed as we require 1 working day for dispatch.

If you want guaranteed Saturday Delivery, please upgrade to Special Delivery Next Day with Guaranteed Saturday Delivery and complete your payment before 2pm. (Fridays only)

For more information on Guaranteed Saturday Delivery, see here:-


Items less than 2kg in weight are normally delivered within 10 working days for Economy Delivery.

If you want Express delivery but the listing states a Royal Mail service, please contact us for an accurate quotation using courier services.


Due to the unreasonable behaviour of Ebay User ID, yamaha1300abs, we are now no longer prepared to deal with customers in the Scottish Highlands and Islands without them first contacting us to discuss delivery times.  All Scottish Highlands and Islands postcodes are now blocked from buying from us but this can be overridden by us on an individual case by case basis.  If there is something you would like to buy from us, please contact us for information.


Ebay does not accommodate differentiation in prices for courier services to Malta.  Goods over 2kg. cannot be sent by Royal Mail and can only be sent by courier.


Our storage facility is located on Bath Street, Nottingham.  NG1 1BZ.  Collections are welcome by prior appointment only.  This is located remotely from the office (address at foot of listing).  We do not dispatch stock from our offices.  This is purely for administrative purposes.

A member of staff visits our storage once a day, usually before 10.00am. unless a customer upgrades an item offered with Economy Delivery to Special Next Day before 2.00pm..

Items are usually, but not always, dispatched same day when cleared payment is received before 10.00am..  Please email us if you require same day dispatch and we will do our best to oblige.  We know that prompt receipt of your item is important to you but please understand that if you simply pay for an item where the listing states Economy Delivery and do not upgrade to 1st Class Recorded minimum then we deem this as not being a priority dispatch as Royal Mail quote 3+ days for 2nd Class and there is dispatch time to add on top of that.

The vast majority of our listings offer free postage.  This will generally mean 2nd Class Standard or Recorded depending on item value.  Where a listing offers Special Nexy Day Delivery as the standard postage option, this does not generally mean that you will receive the item guaranteed next day.  Where we sell an item and offer the item for sale with Special Next Day Delivery as standard, this is to protect your goods in transit purely from an insurance point of view should it be damaged or lost in transit.  It does not represent an offer from us that the item will arrive before 1pm. the following day.  Please email us 

We take pride in wrapping our items carefully and use appropriate materials according to the fragility of the item. 

Wrapping materials cost money and it is our responsibility to limit any damage that may occur in transit.

We keep our postage and packaging charges to an absolute minimum.


Return Postage

Items requiring return, for whatever reason, should be returned using an appropriate delivery service which covers the value of the item for loss or damage in transit,  Generally, we advise customers to return items using 2nd Class Recorded Delivery (where less than 1kg.).

If the item is over 2kg. or, for your convenience, we may offer to send you a courier label which you will need to print and firmly attach to the parcel.  The cost of this service would be deducted from any refund due.  Please contact us for more details.

We will only refund reasonable postage charges in the case of faulty items and we cannot accept liability for parcels not received under any circumstances. 

The buyer is responsible for any postage costs they incur in returning the item to us for any reason, unless the return is due to the receipt of a faulty item where not described in the listing as being faulty.

When a parcel leaves us, it leaves in perfect condition. When received if there is any damage to the parcel or packaging this would have happened whilst in transit, so please take time to inspect your parcel before signing for it as no claims can be made if you accept a damaged parcel and do not sign for it as damaged. If you do not have time to inspect the item please sign for it as unchecked.


This easy payment method is very safe and secure.  You are covered by the Paypal Payment Protection programme up to the value of £500. We do not charge extra fees. 

Bank Transfer 
Please contact us after you have made your purchase for information regarding this quick and easy method of payment.   Please ensure that you cover all charges, if any.

Postal Orders 
Please use Royal Mail Special or Recorded delivery (according to value of Postal Orders) to ensure that any loss can be compensated for as we do not accept responsibility for events outside of our control.

We accept payment by Personal or Business cheque.   Please make cheque payable to Grumpy Greyhound Limited.  Please consider using Royal Mail Special or Recorded Delivery to send your cheque and allow 5 working days for the cheque to clear and goods to be dispatched.
