SeasonPass is also updated to support untethered jailbreak of latest firmware. The new software update for Apple TV2 does not patch the exploit made by Pod2g.

What is New?
Added 5.0.2/9B830 Apple TV 2 untether payload. (Thanks @planetbeing & @nitoTV)
Apple TV 2 users can now resize their root partition.
As stated many times in the past, sn0wbreeze cannot be updated to work on A5(X) devices until a low level exploit in DFU or iBoot is found and made public. Therefore, A5(X) users will have to rely on using the lovely absinthe.
A5(X) Baseband Preservation/Hacktivation?
For those running A5(X) devices and need to preserve your baseband, there is nothing you can do at the moment. For those wanting to hacktivate, the only advice I can give is to buy the carrier’s SIM (the one its locked to obviously) on ebay. The SIM does not have to be active with the carrier to activate the phone.
