Tethered Jailbreak Question (4.4.2) + Sleeping the Apple TV2


I recently purchased my Apple TV2, came with 4.3, but ofcourse I have no way to salvage the blobs hence I am about to update to 4.4.2 and run the tethered jailbreak.


I have a quick question regarding ‘turning the device off/lose power’. I am looking for some clarity on when my tethered boot will disappear. If i put the Apple TV into sleep mode, does that retain the tethered jailbreak? or do i need to run a ‘boot tethered’ each time i wake the device up?


Thanks in advance for any and all help, i looked through the forum and google but couldn’t quite find the answer to my question. Hoping someone whose already got a tethered appletv 2 jailbreak can help. :slight_smile:

An ATV2 is never powered off unless the physical power to it is disrupted, so putting it into Sleep mode does not require it be tethered when it is woken up.

Thankyou very much for the quick response, apprecaite it a lot.
