Why is tvOS 11 beta profile important?
If you are into jailbreaking, then the tvOS beta profile is of immense importance.
As you already know, jailbreak tools can only support a few firmware versions and don’t work especially on the latest versions like 11.2.1.
It tricks Apple’s servers into thinking that your iOS device is an Apple TV. Therefore, your device is not able to fetch OTA updates.
Once you install it, your device will stay on your current version only. When you go into the Settings section, it will still display your current version as the latest version, even though we know that’s not the case.
Here’s how you can install this software configuration profile using the direct download link.
