Noob jailbreak failure

Sorry for the first noob failure post… I’ve tried everything, including watching videos, reading forums, etc, but still coming up short!

I am trying to jailbreak my ATV2 6.0.2 on a Mac running Mavericks 10.9 and SeasonPass. 

I connect the ATV and run SeasonPass Create IPSW. It goes through most of the steps, but while verify the update, I see a message Unknown Operation (50).

I never see iTunes open or any iTunes activity, unlike everything I’ve seen in the video tutorials.

Eventually I see a message Firmware restore Successful! (Done button appears)

I click Done, then click Boot Tethered.

It does a few things, then shows: Exploit Injection Failed (Done button)

I’ve tried on 2 Macs running Mavericks, and used 2 USB cables. No luck!!!

Any tips???


All I know is that the jail break for ATV2 6.0.2 is not out yet but is close to being released.

There seems to be so much misinformation around. I was going off this:

Yes you can use season pass with 6.0.2 but it takes you back to 5.3 but it is a tethered jailbreak

Can someone please tell me how to use Seas0nPass to install 5.3? I just can’t seem to figure this out! 


From what I understand, I need to downgrade from 6.0.2 to 5.3 so I can use the new untethered jb. Is that correct?


Personally, I have never needed to upgrade/downgrade to a different version in order to jailbreak… I’ve just plugged it in and ran jalbreak. Just get latest seasonpass, run it, right click “create ipsw” and choose 5.3. (I think it will choose 5.3 if you just regular click it but I like to be in control, so I right click it), follow directions on screen or read here:

Sweet! Thanks! So, I just downgraded to 5.3. Now how do I do the untethered jb with Seasonpass? Or, do I need to buy aTV Flash?

The advice to try downgrading from 6.0.2 to 5.3 was given to willynanita in a different thread because he was having trouble jailbreaking his device.  Whenever I’m having trouble jailbreaking with S/P (in Windows) then starting fresh by installing the current version in iTunes often solves the problem and indeed seems to have worked for willynanita BUT this extra step isn’t normally necessary .

Just run the latest version of Seas0nPass and you will automatically be jailbroken untethered on 5.3  Don’t worry about what version you are on beforehand.

EDIT: I see others here are having problems jailbreaking using MAC OS

It means apple server still signing 5.3?


Just run the latest SeasonPass (which is free) to jailbreak to 5.3.  You do not need to buy ATV Flash unless you want the additional apps that are provided as part of ATV Flash.
