Async_Wake Exploit Confirmed Working on Apple TV 4K and tvOS 11.x
The async_wake exploit released by Google security researcher Ian Beer today has been confirmed working on the Apple TV 4K and tvOS 11.x. The exploit which also affects iOS 11.1.2 was tested on the ATV by Jonathan Levin, author of MacOS and iOS Internals.
Congratulating unparalleled paragon of hacking @i41nbeer for a truly marvelous, clean exploit which also works (*confirmed*) on TvOS 11.x and the Apple TV 4K! My #Jailbreak #Toolkit will be expanded to support this platform as well - and #LiberTV will finally get its update :-)
Levin says his jailbreak toolkit is "a dylib for those people who end up with a send right to the kernel_task port (a.k.a tfp0) in their process, but don't know what to do next."
LiberTV is a jailbreak utility for the Apple TV released by Levin in March. At that time it was semi-tethered, based on yalu, and supported the Apple TV 4 and tvOS 9.1 through 10.1.
We'll be watching closely for the LiberTV update and any word on a jailbreak release for iOS.
