fireCore announced that they have successfully jailbroken the Apple TV 2. This is the A4 model, NOT the new 1080p one.  The  jailbreak is tethered which requires the AppleTV to be connected to a Mac/PC when first powering it on.

The new iOS 5.0 software for the Apple TV was the update that brought the new iPhone/iPad like icon UI to the main screen.  The update also brought some minor changes throughout the system such as, Genius, iTunes Match integration, movie purchases in iCloud, and a few other minor details.

Also, not all jailbreak plugins are currently working in iOS 5.0 for the AppleTV.  Here is a list of the compatible and incompatible plugins.
