On the device selection page, choose all your Apple TVs you want to jailbreak.

Download the file and save to the atvjb folder, renaming it to embedded.mobileprovision.

Launch install script

You’re now ready to install! You may either use Xcode’s Windows->Device, by creating an ipa from the application folder, and then pressing “+” and selecting the newly created IPA.
Alternatively, use our script, which expects the following syntax:
Install_atv_jb.sh
e.g.:
Install_atv_jb.sh e5e2c931d4a94ecf71e12a88b0b4579b com.sample.tvjb 93AA45BBCC “iPhone Developer: test (ALI766JXB5)”

The jailbreak app will install to your Apple TV.

Click PANGU app to launch jailbreak, wait a few seconds.. and your device will be jailbroken!

Now, you can connect your device by ssh (port 22), which will launch dropbear (an SSHd clone) on the TV. It’s a good idea to change the default password (alpine), and/or add a host key to /var/root/.ssh/authorized_keys.

⦁ For multiple Apple TV devices

If you have multiple Apple TV devices, please register all device in step 2 and choose all device to prepare provision file in step 4.
After step 6, the script will generate an IPA file in order to install. Remember you can always deploy the IPA files using XCode, or iFunBox (Windows)
