After wasting the last 3 days of my life, I just have to cry “uncle” and seek the wisdom of the many experts here…
I’m working with a 4.3 (8F455) and it all started “normally”: Working on my PC with SP 9.3, I was able to save the signatures before encountering the common “Conflict” error.
At that point, I have always been able to switch to a MAC where I was able to complete the jailbreak.
So I was pleased when the process completed fully on my MAC and I received the “restored to factory settings” message.
But… NO! Despite what seemed to be success, I was left with a rapidly blinking light – and the “cord & Note” Icon. Undaunted, I wasn’t worried because I’ve never had an instance where I could not recover and successfully complete the jailbreak from this point.
I’ve pulled out all my tricks, have used multiple PC’s and MAC’s, as well as multiple Micro-USB’s… I’ve created signed IPSW’s in iFaith and successfully restored the ATV with iTunes using that iFaith IPSW.
And while the jailbreak and restoration completes normally and successfully each time – I cannot escape the blinking light and iTune icon on my screen.
There HAS to be a way to make this happen! Isn’t there?
What have I not done that I could try next?
Why is this such a pain?
