Apple TV 4 Jailbreak for TvOS 10 Kodi

Apple TV 4 Jailbreak for TvOS 10-10.1

Want to Install Kodi on your Apple TV? - TURN AUTO UPDATE OFF NOW!

Good news for those wanting to run Kodi on their Apple TV 4 media streamers. Jonathan Levin just released a jailbreak named LiberTV. The bad news is it only works on tvOS 10.0-10.1 so if you updated your Apple TV 4 to 10.1.1 or 10.1.2 you're out of luck for now, because Apple already patched the hole.

If your Apple TV 4 is at the magic firmware version, be sure to turn off auto update and proceed with the instructions to jailbreak your new Kodi box below.

About This Jailbreak

This jailbreak is "semi-tethered," so what does this mean? Whenever you lose power to your AppleTV or need to restart it, you will need run the jailbreak app again. Since an Apple TV is usually plugged into power and left in standby, this should not affect it all that often. You can run the jailbreak right from your TV so there is need to plug it back into your computer again.


No NitoTV Support - Don't install it yet as it could cause problems. A working version is being worked on and coming soon.

LiberTV Can Turn Auto Updates Off - Once installed be sure not to let your Apple TV auto update, or you will lose the ability to jailbreak.

Dropbear SSH Client - After jailbreaking your Apple TV, you can then use SSH to access or side load files.

Don't Give Up - This jailbreak may not work the fist time and could require several attempts to get in. This is the nature of the Apple TV 4 and it is a bit tougher than prior jailbreaks you may be used to.

No support yet for Cydia although once more people start using this jailbreak, it may soon be forthcoming.
