Q. What does this jailbreak do?

Q. Why is it called a jailbreak when there’s no Cydia?
A. Cydia is not compatible with Apple TV. You can still sideload apps such as Kodi/NitoTV and SSH into your device.
Q. Is NitoTV compatible with Apple TV 4 jailbreak?
A. For those who don’t know NitoTV is the Cydia alternative for Apple TV. It is not compatible with Apple TV 4G jailbreak as of now. It can brick your device permanently.
The developer is working on compatibility and will hopefully release it soon.
Q. Does Mobile Substrate run on tvOS?
A. Yes, the 64-bit version will run.
Q. Why you should not override system binaries?
A. Overriding system binaries can brick your device permanently. When your Apple TV reboots, it is no longer in jailbroken state. So any binaries you add will carry no signature and will get roasted by AppleMobileFileIntegrity.
