NOTE: you must update your AppleTV to 4.2.1 before you jailbreak. Download iOS 4.2.1

2. Load greenpois0n and click ‘Yes’.

3. Connect your AppleTV to your computer using a microUSB cable.

4. Click on ‘Jailbreak’ and follow the instructions on the screen to put your AppleTV in DFU mode. Using the remote, you will have to simultaneously press ( and hold ) the Home and Play buttons. For more info on how to put your AppleTV in DFU more, read this tutorial….

5. Once your AppleTV enters the DFU mode, greenpois0n will transfer the necessary jailbreaking code. Be patient

6. When greenpois0n is done, you can unplug the AppleTV from your computer, and connect it to your TV. You will notice that, the Apple logo is replaced by the greenpois0n skull and the menu gets a new ‘greenpois0n’ button. Select greenpois0n > Inject Software > Cydia Payload

8. That’s it you’re done. Enjoy
