At the moment there are hundreds of thousands of people waiting for Joshua Hill (aka p0sixninja) to finalize and release the greenpois0n jailbreak for iPhone iOS 4.1 / 4.2, a recent tweet from the hacker suggests that he may work on an Apple TV jailbreak in the future.

A few days ago he tweeted “New AppleTV confirmed to run iOS. This is going to be fun XD”, to me this sounds like he is lining up a new challenge for himself, which is great news for any of you interested in jailbreaking the recently announced new Apple TV.

It will be interesting to see what extra functionality an Apple TV jailbreak could bring, perhaps it could give it storage via the micro-USB port, or perhaps we could see apps on the Apple TV, which in-turn could bring games.

What extra functionality would you like an Apple TV jailbreak to bring?
