Hi i have a Apple TV 2 md199ks/a, with ios 5.0 4099.
I have tried the steps in your guide to Jailbreak the apple tv, everything goes fine until the last step where iTunes should restore the flash to the Apple TV.
But in the last step i get an error saying:
"Apple TV:n “Apple TV” could not be restored, because the file with the software is not compatible.
I have tried to shift click on restore and chosen the IPSW, but i still get the same error everytime.
Do anyone have any idea? Is it possible to Jailbreak my Apple TV?
I have an atv 2 that I cannot jb. Everything works properly except when it get to iTunes it says it cannot be restored, update server could not be contacted or is temporarily unavailable. Anyone else have this problem? Really frustrated
Have you tried checking the ‘hosts’ file on the machine trying to do the jailbreak to see if there is an entry re-directing the Apple servers elsewhere? Some of the jail breaking tools (e.g. Tiny Umbrella) can insert such an entry. It is not unknown for the Apple servers to be unavailable temporarily, but any extensive period suggests an issue at your end.
