Apple TV Jailbreak Updated for 5.2 Software, Third-Generation Model and Some Plug-ins Still Unsupported [iOS Blog]

Apple TV’s latest update — version 5.2 — was originally released back in January with Bluetooth Keyboard support and a number of other features.

Today, FireCore released updated versions of aTV Flash (black) and its Seas0nPass jailbreaking app.

The app jailbreaks any second-generation Apple TV unit with the 5.2 software installed, but the jailbreak for the third generation Apple TV released in March 2012 remains missing in action. As such, second-generation Apple TV units can fetch a premium on the secondary market.

Full list of changes

– NEW! Added support for Apple TV 5.2 and Bluetooth keyboards
– Minor improvements to backups
– Minor improvements to DVD playback
– A handful of other bug fixes and improvements

There is one important note, however — depending on how users choose to use their jailbroken Apple TV, some may want to wait on upgrading. Firecore adds an important note at the end of their update mentioning that “some 3rd party plugins such as Plex, Remote HD, Rowmote, and XBMC are not yet compatible with the 5.1+ Apple TV software.”

Users who do wish to upgrade should head to FireCore’s website for walkthrough instructions.
