Back in the day, jailbreaking was a vital tool that was needed by most iOS users. However, thanks to Apple’s efforts jailbreak tools are almost impossible to use and their features are no longer considered crucial when it comes to iPhones.
Nevertheless, there are other Apple devices that are able to benefit from jailbreaking, and developers are working hard to make this possible. Apple TV 4 and Apple TV 5 users will be glad to hear that there is a jailbreaking tool tht works with tvOS version 10.0 to 10.1.
If you have the tvOS versions that are compatible you can go ahead and download LiberTV. Before you start make sure that the Apple TV is connected to your computer via an USB cord. Then search the LiberTV IBA online and download the file.
Go to Cydia Impactor and check whether the Apple TV is connected to the computer. Then press the Start button and type the Apple login details. Now the jailbreaking process is supposed to start.
Wait until the jailbreak is installed and then disconnect your TV from your computer. Look for the LiberTV icon on the HomeScreen, tap it and then select “Do It.”
