I’ve been very lucky so far with the help of a couple of people here namely sufferinsuccotash & Carpenter940 I managed to JB my apple TV down from 6.0.2 to a tethered 5.3.
Now apart from my 8yr old who has managed to switch it off hhhmmmm. I cant wait for a untethered JB to come along… lol
On with the help…
My nephew has been asking about purchasing a 2nd hand ATV 2nd gen, but I just wanted to know… if he brought one that was on (lets say 5.0.1 or 5.0.2 - ios5) or an updated unit on ios6 - 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.1, 6.1.3, and apple are no longer signing 5.3 would I be correct in stating that he would not be able to do a JB and reverse it down to a tethered 5.3.
also if apple are still signing 5.3 how come regardless of what software i use i cannot download 5.3 blobs… (A stupid question coming up, is it at all possible to install cydia to save blobs for the unit it is installed on.) (similar to cydia on Iphone)
I have tried TinyU, the latest version and that said there was nothing available.
I tried to save with SPass and that said there was none available (if I kept on trying I would not have been able to do the JB)
and from what I can remember only Ifaith (latest version) told me of newer blobs available (inc a beta) but it did not save them.
advise, help, or any wise words would be very much appreciated, thanks chaps…
