|Seller notes:||“Condition not applicable. This listing for an Apple Jailbreaking Service on your 2nd Generation unit only !”|
ATTENTION: THIS LISTING IS FOR A JAILBREAK SERVICE ONLY AND DOES NOT INCLUDE AN APPLE TV.
JAILBREAK IS ONLY POSSIBLE ON THE 2nd GENERATION APPLE TV.
DO NOT ASK IF WE CAN JAILBREAK A 3rd GENERATION - SORRY BUT YOU WILL BE IGNORED BECAUSE IT JUST SHOWS US THAT YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS LISTING THAT WE HAVE WASTED OUR TIME WRITING!
WE PAY OUR TAXES! WE ARE NOT ONE OF THOSE SELLERS ON EBAY THAT CLAIMS TO OUTSELL EVERYONE ELSE BUT ARE NOT EVEN VAT REGISTERED - THAT BULL DOESN'T STACK UP UNLESS THEY ARE NOT PAYING THEIR TAXES.
NOW WE'VE HAD A MOAN - LET'S GET ON TO THE IMPORTANT STUFF!
"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. Once at the main menu, if it asks you to Update Now or Update Later, select Update Later. This is important DO NOT UPDATE to the latest version 6.0.2 (OS Build 7.0.4).
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 less work.

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!

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..
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
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.
Original Key Features retained (These cost money and you possibly have no longer need for them!)
