I have a problem with my apple TV 1st Generation.
I did a Factory Restore and now i have
Software Version 2.0.2
Software Build 120
OS Build Version 8N5461
EFI Version 00DA.B04
GF Version 3.1.0/2.9.50
I wanna upgrade the Apple TV to Software Version 3.0.2 which is the last but all i get after downloading and installing the update is the same message
Update failed. Apple tv could not be updated. Make a Factory Restore
I have made over 30 Factory Restores but the same message all the time.
I read that the solution is to change the dns server to 18.104.22.168 and 208.067.222.222 ---> Fail
I also tried to update it with dhcp by cable ---> Fail
I also took the wifi card out and did the update only by cable ---> Fail
I downloaded the update in Apple TV and when it restarted i took the cable off ---> Fail
The most annoying thing is that it downloads the update and when it starts installation of 3.0.2 then the message appears.
Can somebody help me please, so i can update my Apple TV
Thanks in advance.
Did you figured it out? I am having the issue with updating to 3.0.2, update downloads but does not install. “Update Failed” I tired all the steps that you listed.
Still no solution. If anyone can help please advice.
Sorry I can’t help you.
I took a friends apple tv hard disk and I duplicated it.
Now it works fine.
