What is greeng0blin?
greeng0blin is an Apple TV jailbreak tool for tvOS 10.2.2 firmware. It is developed by hackers nitoTV and Justin Williams aka Jaywalker.
This tool features a full port of APT and DPKG for Apple TV’s 64-bit architecture. This means tweak developers can also create their own repositories specifically for this tool.
You can download its IPA file using the link below.
Which Apple TV model is compatible with this tool?
Unfortunately, this tool doesn’t support many firmware versions. As of now, only one model is compatible and, that too, on just one version.
You can use only this tool if you own an Apple TV running tvOS 10.2.2 firmware. If you have the latest Apple TV 4K model, you are out of luck.
Fortunately, the signing window of 10.2.2 is still open so you can freely downgrade or upgrade your device to it with iTunes.
The developers intend to add support for tvOS 11 firmware in the near future so watch out for that.
