Hi James or itimpi,
Im in the same boat as Kyphos 4.4.4, and aTV Flash 2.2. Except that i have the lifetime account. will i be able to upgrade and keep my jailbreak untethered? Also i use PLEX app on my apple TV2 as well as overflow and XBMC. Will everthing still worK/ What about my setting for XBMC, like the sources, will those restore via the back up feature? B iggest reason i want to load 5.2 is i want access to the HULUPlus app. Please reply
Until recently, I was in the same boat: an ATV2 with 4.4.4, and aTV Flash 2.2.
Over the last few days, I’ve been able to upgrade the ATV to 5.2. (I didn’t want 5.2.1 since it requires a tethered jailbreak).
First I downloaded Seas0nPass 0.9.0 and ran it (after connecting a microUSB cable). I control-clicked on Create IPSW, and selected 5.2 from the drop-down menu. Seas0nPass then proceeded to upgrade the ATV2 from 4.4.4 to 5.2 (with the help of iTunes which launched auto-magically).
-> note: I had to unplug the power cord from the back of the ATV2. Took me a while to discover that trick.
After the upgrade was complete, my ATV2 was happliy loaded with 5.2, and I have the new iOS-stye UI. In addition, it’s jailbroken, as indicated by a Firecore logo on the Settings icon.
Uofortunately, the aTV Flash installer refused to run. I have version 1.1.1 that I received when I first bought aTV Flash. It throws an error, reporting thst the installer has expired. There seems to be no way to download the current version without paying Firecore again. If you already have the 2.2 installer, you may be OK. If you don’t, be aware that you might end up with an updated ATV, but no aTV Flash. I’ve contacted Firecore Support to see if I’ve missed something.
I’m bummed that I’ve lost aTV Flash, but I have the new iOS apps, and version 5.2 fixes a nasty Netflix bug that plagued lots of Netflix titles.
Good luck with your upgrade! [/quote]
