PwnageTool 4.1 Apple TV Jailbreak Released

The iPhone Dev Team has rolled out the PwnageTool 4.1 jailbreaking tool, designed to hack into Apple devices running iOS 4.1.

According to a blog post made by the team, the new jailbreaking tool will be able to hack into AppleTV 2G, iPad (firmware 3.2.2), iPod Touch 3G and 4G, iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4.

Early reports from users have confirmed that the tool is easy to use and is not posing any problems. The more interesting bit here is the jailbreak for Apple TV, the newly released Apple device which lets users stream music, videos and shows to their TVs from their PC or internet.

However, people jailbreaking their Apple TVs may not be able to do much with it right now.

The Dev Team explained: “These are the *very* early days of AppleTV 2G jailbreaking, so it’ll take some time for JB app developers to come up with methods to use your AppleTV 2G from the remote, versus the command line.”
