I have an ATV 2 running 4.4.4(3330). I used iFaith 1.4.2 to dumb my blobs then tried the workaround for signing per the instructions here
I’ve followed the instructions to the letter and also tried the sn0wbreeze alternative mentioned in the thread topic. Every time i try the restore in iTunes I receive an error 1600. If I plug in my ATV the device is not recognized. I looked at my iFaith blob and the <apticket> is all zeros(0). Is this a problem? Or is it only used for later versions? I can’t seem to get a straight answer.
It’s driving me nuts. I realize that I could just breakdown and give in to Apple, restore the latest version (jailbreakable) and be done. However, I am (a) totally pissed at the arrogance of Apple in forcing me to use only the latest version --it’s my device and if I want to run an older version it should be my choice (b) we have people using the system ,like grandparents, who get lost in the plethora of icons. Plain text menus are hard to beat.
If anyone has suggestions, please jump in. I thought that I saw somewhere that you can use someone else’s signed blobs, but then you would be on a tethered boot. Is that true?
