    I understand the apple TV 3 is not and might not be able to be jailbroken. My questions is about the reason. Is it that the Apple TV 3 hardware is differnet therefore it will never be jailbroken, or is it more software related where another newer version of software running on the Apple tv 3 might allow for jailbreak goodness?

    It's always the software, sort of a game. The manufacturer does not want their devices jailbroken (or rooted as they call it in some cases), and those of us in the community of course want to modify and/or root/jailbreak our devices. The community will find an exploit and jailbreak/root a device, then the manufacturer patches that exploit on the next version of the OS, but then the community finds a new exploit, etc.
