Apple is no longer signing tvOS 10.1
Many of us are eagerly waiting for this tool to drop. However, the main problem seems to be that tvOS 10.1 is being no longer signed.
Luckily, new Apple TV devices are still coming loaded with older firmware. 64 GB variant has tvOS 9.0 whereas 32GB come loaded with tvOS 10.1. If you want to jailbreak your Apple TV 4 you will have to stay under tvOS 10.1.
