UPDATE: I’ve written a complete ‘how to’ covering this subject: http://forum.firecore.com/topic/8468
Please see that thread for full details on the procedure to restore a previous AppleTV version using Seas0npass.
My first time on this forum as i’ve never had any problems with jailbreaking before; but i’m a seasoned jailbreaker since iPhone 3 days
Unfortunately, my AppleTV2 crapped out a few days ago and i’m having some serious issues trying to get it working again. It was running 4.4.4 very nicely, and i’d like to get back to that version if I can because the Plex client for the AppleTV doesn’t integrate well with the new UI in the 5.0+ versions (as I discovered once I tried the 5.0.2 version).
The problem i’m having is that Seas0npass is insisting that:
This Apple TV is not eligible for this version.
When I right click the “Create IPSW” button and select the 4.4.4 firmware version from the list.
I’m using the latest version of Seas0npass, and I have EVERY SHSH blob version saved through Tiny Umbrella, so I expected the “SHSH stitching” magic of that latest version to allow me to downgrade the AppleTV back to the 4.4.4 version I want. But, Seas0npass isn’t having any of it
Where does Seas0npass ‘look’ for the SHSH blobs? I have Tiny Umbrella configured to save the blobs in a different location than default (ie, not in the .shsh directory in my home dir). But, I have copied the complete contents of my alternative directory to .shsh in an attempt to get this to work, but it still fails.
Does Seas0npass only use the SHSH blobs if they are saved to the Cydia servers? I do not add my blobs to the Cydia servers any more (I read a while ago that Cydia stopped accepting new blobs, so turned the option off), so is this why it’s failing to allow the 4.4.4 IPSW to be built with the “not eligible” error?
All I want is a way to restore to 4.4.4 with my saved SHSH blobs… any advice here would be greatly appreciated
