Looks like iFaith is Windows only. Is TinyUmbrella the way to go in OSx? I tried to pull the SHSH off my AppleTV 2 with 5.2, but I don’t think it’s being recognized. I tried putting it in DFU, but still can’t save the SHSH.
If you do not have blobs for 5.2 then you are out of luck.
However if you have ATV Flash installed and used the option to backup firmware signatures you may find that it backed up the 5.2 ones for you anyway despite not having that version of firmware installed at the time.
Would it be possible to get the blobs using iFaith? In the past I’ve used Tiny Umbrella but I know it can’t get the blobs if Apple’s stopped signing the software but I heard that with iFaith it might be possible.
use ifaith to get the blob from your device then it will save to your desktop then use snowbreeze to jailbreak choose ifaith mode and use the blob it made the shift restore in itunes it works but u may have a couple errors uing ifaith ignore and follow instructions again i have jailbroke 4 devices today 3 on 5.2 and 1 on 5.1 and none had been jailbroke before…
Thanks for the link, but I’m still a little confused. That post states that I can’t get the blobs for 5.2, but i thought iFaith was able to do this so long as you have 5.2 installed on the ATV. So I guess my questions are:
Is it still possible to install 5.2 without jailbreaking onto my ATV (i.e. an untouched Apple IPSW)?
If so, will iFaith backup my blobs for 5.2 so that I can then jailbreak with sn0wbreeze?
Sorry if I’m being dumb but this is all a little new to me.
if you using ifaith to Dump your SHSH possible as long as you can dump the SHSH blobs for the 5.2 then you safe and you can restore and jailbreak it… i’m working on dump shsh instruction soon i’m not sure it’s sucessfully dumping your shsh because my previously jailbroke and blobs already saved to cydia server…
this one no one yet confirmed they could or couldn’t. if you sure you can do it then would be great new… I dont have ATV2 with iOS 5.2 and without blobs saved so I can try to confirm… according to ifaith you can try to dump the shsb blob which will able to save current blobs for ios your apple tv. might want to try that first see if it work…
i Can 100% confirm I have jailbroken 4 apple tv version 2s today 3 were on 5.2 and they had never previously been jailbroke and so no blobs ever saved but i used ifaith to save the current blobs for the fw they weree on in this case 5.2 then used snow to pick yup the blobs build a siggned version of 5.2 which i shift restored in iyuntes.
i also did exact same proces for 1 on 5.0.2 at 19.00 uk time on the 23rd march
i say again if you currently have an atv 2 on 5.2 without blobs u can still jailbreak by ising ifaith to grab the blobs
