Step 1: Open Seas0nPass and select the ‘Boot Tethered’ option.
Step 2: When prompted, connect the AppleTV to your computer via USB. Wait for the rapid flashing light then connect the power. Once both are connected hold both the ‘MENU’ and ‘PLAY/PAUSE’ buttons for 7 seven seconds.
Step 3: Seas0n Pass will complete the tethered boot automatically. Once complete, remove the USB cable and connect the HDMI cable.
Currently, Seas0nPassonly supports second-gen Apple TV and is Mac OS specific (Mac: OSX 10.6 or later). However, the team is hard at work to release the windows version of Seas0nPass. For all Jailbreak related updates, please follow us on Twitter or become a Facebook fan. via firecore
