Do Not Jailbreak in windows7 without reading

Also fixes most security errors for restore. Windows 7

Spent three days trying to restore my Apple tv2 with Itunes Windows 7 , success at last. A couple of things you need to do is first run the Itunes diagnostics under the help tab on top. I had several things go wrong.

Unable to connect to Itunes servers

  • modify host file
    -C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
    -Add  “#     74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com” to bottom and save

 

And unable to connect to Drivers
This one took a while because kept getting security errors from apple.
Under system programs
-uninstall megaupload and megakey  they are placing driver in wrong place
-uninstall apple mobile device support

Under devise drivers 

  • uninstall apple device drivers

REBOOT computer

open 7zip goto your itunes.exe and view archive  double click applemobiledevicedevicesupport.exe

 

rerun itunes diagnostics in itunes under help

 

all should be good
