Like an idiot I had my ATV2 device jail broken but accidently upgraded to 4.4.2. Does anyone know where I can find the instructions to reset to factory with my original 4.3 software?
Unfortunately I did not back up my SHSH blobs :(
Is there any way I could use someone elses SHSH blobs??
After spending many hours on trying to downgrade my aTV2 I finally did it. I don’t know how long this will work as it may only be because apple is still signing the 4.3 firmware. I really thought I was screwed because I never saved my SHSH (blobs) but in the end it was a simple solution. Here is what I did. (someone else in the thread also did this)
Download the latest season pass (mine was 0.3.42.3335)
Download the ipsw files here http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/ (if your computer saves them as zip files just rename them)
start season pass, then hold down the shift key and press the “Create IPSW” button then select the IPSW file that you downloaded that is only one step below where you currently are. example if you currently have 4.4.2 installed select 4.4.1
Follow the instructions like normal and let iTunes do it’s work automatically.
Since your aTV settings were set back to factory plug it in and select your language and other settings until you hit the main screen then check your firmware in the about box. If you get a plug in USB cord picture when trying to start the aTV2 plug in the USB cable and click the season pass button for boot tethered then log in ot check your settings.
REBOOT YOUR COMPUTER!!
repeat steps 3-6 until you get your desired firmware level.
PLEASE leave a message if this helps someone. I really hope no one has to lose as much time as I did on this
