    Jailbreak for ATV3: is it really coming or just a hoax?

    Around the first week of December ATV3 owners were suprised with good news about a possible jailbreak for their device.
    This was "confirmed" by several sites and it should be published after a beta-testing period before year's end.

    Now we are in the second week of January and still nothing.
    A hoax? Maybe, but p0sixninja's twitter messages spoke of still existing vulnerabilities, which let me believe it could be possible.

    Is a jailbreak for ATV3 (still) being worked on?
    And will it indeed be published soon?
    I sure hope so, but realisticly...don't think so.

    There are two things they need.

    First: a way to get in the device: a socalled injection vector.

    Second: the hack to open the system.

    The problem is finding a weak spot for the injection vector.

    This is how I understand it and I hope I explained it correctly.
