A possible way to gain access without opening Apple TV

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, I don't have one myself, but I thought of a way that MAY be able to be used to update the Apple TV. It may be possible to redirect the DNS servers to your own, and then forward a 'software update' request to a computer on your local network. If Apple put some sort of hash check in(probably, but there's a chance they didn't), then this wouldn't work without Apple's private key(which they would NEVER give out). Can someone with a hacked Apple TV disassemble the Finder.app exexutable(from the Apple TV) with IDA or a similar debugger and see if it does do a hash check? If not, this may be a foolproof way to gain access to the Apple TV.
