Reuse Existing IPSW file?

Sorry if this has already been answered, but I couldn’t find it…

I have three ATV2s which I jailbreak with SeasonPass to install ATV Flash. Having jailbroken the first ATV2, is there anyway I can use the same IPSW file on the others? It obviously takes some time to redownload etc the IPSW, and I assume this is just repeating the same process. It would be a lot quicker if I could reuse the same one. Simply an option in SeasonPass to jailbreak using existing IPSW?


Well firstly Seas0nPass allows you to shift+click the restore button to use the already downloaded IPSW. If you’re on Windows you can download iREB and it will allow you to upload the final stages of the jailbreak and then in iTunes click Shift+Restore and select the Seas0nPass IPSW. 

Thanks, yes, although I haven’t tried it yet, it does look as though iReb does what I need. However, seeing as SeasonPass clearly does something IReb-like as part of its jailbreak process, it would still seem sensible to offer a shortcut along the lines I describe.

FireCore says they will be adding the ability of using an already created IPSW in future versions but until then iREB will be your best friend.

This feature has just been added to the Windows version of Seas0nPass.

To use a previously created IPSW simply right click the ‘Create IPSW’ button and choose the ‘Restore Latest Version in iTunes’ option.

In the Mac version, this option is found under the Seas0nPass > Help menu.


Thanks so much! You guys really take the time to listen to your customers it is great!

Great, thanks!

I have already used iReb to upgrade my last ATV2, but next time I won’t need to do so…!
