I purchased the latest version specifically to save the 5.3 signatures on a just purchased Apple TV -- something that seems impossible to do with Seasonpass.
However, when I choose the option in maintenance to "Backup my Firmware," no backup seems to occur.
Unlike the "Completed Successfully" message I receive when choosing "Manage Backups" from the same menu, there is no similar confirmation that the firmware signatures have been saved.
And when I check the iFaith and Cydia servers, they also show NO saved 5.3 signatures for this Apple TV.
When I check a different Apple TV with saved signatures earlier than 5.3, I can see these saved versions listed on the aTV Flash -- where nothing appears for the 5.3 with signatures ostensibly saved.
I would hate to realize once Apple stops signing 5.3 that this aTV Flash actually is no better than Seasonpass at saving 5.3 signatures.
Can other aTV users comment?
