For anyone who missed it steve jobs did confirm that the new apple tv will run IOS and it will run apps. There for by deffinition people will want a jailbreak for it. The upcomming bootrom exploit SHATTER is able to decrypt apple tv's firmware. Good news It will jailbreak apple tvs. Bad news it hasn't been mentioned but i will assume this may delay the shatter release until they can add support for the apple tv.
Earlier tonight I had seen Chpwn tweet about the new Apple TV firmware, which is indeed actually iOS based as we had hoped for. The firmware is even available to download from Apple's servers, before the product has even hit hands of anxious pre-order customers.
Shortly after hearing of this, the Dev-Team posted a small update to their recent demo of SHAtter, stating that SHAtter has been successfully used to decrypt the Apple TV iOS keys!

If you’re familiar with vfdecrypt, you can use that key to decrypt the image and mount it. If you do so, feel free to use the comments section to discuss what you discover there(And of course, thanks @pod2g!) I have a good feeling about the next month.
