Step 2: Select the ‘Create IPSW’ button to start the jailbreak process. Step 3: The latest Apple TV software will be downloaded and used to create a custom ‘jailbroken’ software file. Step 4: When prompted, connect your Apple TV to your Mac/PC using a micro-USB cable (leave power cable disconnected). Once the light on the front of the Apple TV begins to flash rapidly, point the remote at the Apple TV and hold both the MENU and PLAY/PAUSE buttons for 7 seven seconds.
