Now jailbreaks happen before products get even shipped.

Earlier today we reported that Apple has uploaded the Apple TV firmware on their servers. We mentioned that hackers sure will get their hands on it right away. Well, it actually did not take long. The iPhone Dev Team blog (via AppleInsider) reports that the Apple TV iOS 4.1 firmware has been jailbroken using their new SHatter tool.

Possibly jailbreakers are faster to get apps onto the Apple TV than Apple is. Apple has so far not announced an Apple TV apps. When the jailbreakers receive their new Apple TVs we will see what they can do with it. Maybe Apple can even get some ideas which apps users would want to run on the Apple TV.

The first Apple TVs are to arrive before Friday.
