It has been a long time since I looked at my Apple TV2. Maybe its time to upgrade and Jailbreak to the latest iOS 5.1.1 before Apple release the upcoming iOS 6.0.

Instructions on how to perform an untethered jailbreak of your second generation Apple TV using Seas0nPass.

Step Four

Step Seven
Seas0nPass will create a custom IPSW file for you.

Step Eight
Once your custom IPSW file has been created, Seas0nPass will ask you to connect the Apple TV to your computer via a micro-USB cable and use the remote to put it into DFU mode by holding MENU and PLAY/PAUSE for 7 seconds. The power cable should be unplugged during this process. Tip: Press the buttons and insert the usb cable at the exact same time.

Once your Apple TV has been detected in DFU mode, Seas0nPass will upload some files, automatically launch iTunes, and beginning restoring to the new firmware.
