restore problem after update


i’ve got an ATV2 with the latest firmware 5.3, when i run season pass I get this message:

“the apple tv cannot be restored at this time because the Apple TV software update server cannot be contacted”

I thought Season pass would roll back my firmware? Ive tried looking up the host file and others options but nothing has worked, the host file just says this:

Host Database

localhost is used to configure the loopback interface

when the system is booting.  Do not change this entry.    localhost    broadcasthost
::1             localhost
fe80::1%lo0    localhost

Please help i’m at the point where i don’t care if it tethered or not i just want it to work.

Do you have blobs saved from a previous version of firmware?  

no unfortunately not, didn’t know anything about blobs.

Then your only option at this time is to try the tethered jailbreak on version 4.4.2 using the following link.
