New to JB, having issues doing it with new ATV2

hello all,

 

I just got an ATV2 device and I’m working on my first attempt to JB it. I’m running into an issue that I hope you can point me in the right direction for. When I attempt to JB the device, I can’t get it to go to DFU mode unless I plug in the power. No problem, read that that might be the case. I’ve downloaded what i think is the latest version of Seas0nPass (0.8.3.5820) and I’m getting this error that pops up extremely fast and goes away at the end which then gives me the confirmation screen that its been jail broken. I was able to screen shot it so I could read it:

 

“The Apple TV “Apple TV” could not be restored because the firmware file is not compatible”

 

Looking in the log files I see this:

Think this is related to the error I got from the screenshot.

 

My ATV2 device has Apple TV Software 5.0(4099)

 

I’d appreciate it if anyone can point me to something that says I can’t jailbreak this device or any work arounds.

 

Thanks.

Are you absolutely positive that it is the Apple TV 2 and not the Apple TV 3?

Does the side of the box says 1080P or HDMI?

Or what does your box look like?

Left = Apple TV 3

Right = Apple TV 2

Crap. I don’t know. I didn’t even know ATV3 was out yet. All I’ve read on is ATV2. I will check.

 

Thanks for the info.

 

edit: just looked at the model number MD199LL/A, doing a google search shows ATV3.

 

ARRGH!!

 

Wonder if I can take it back and find a ATV2?
