"Unable to download firmware. Please check your internet connection..."

Hey guys,

I’m trying to jailbreak my Apple TV 2 on ios 6.0.2 using Seas0nPass 0.9.5.  It’s my understanding that I can downgrade my Apple TV to 5.3 using the latest version of Seas0nPass, however when I plug the Apple TV into my laptop using a mini USB cord, double click on Seas0nPass, right-click “Create IPSW” and select ios 5.3, it downloads 5.3 for a while then eventually an error message pops up saying “Unable to download firmware. Please check your internet connection or firewall settings and try again.”

Not sure what’s going on or how to fix it.  I turned off my firewall and ran Seas0nPass as administrator, but the error message still comes up.


Any ideas?

As a workaround you can download the IPSW from http://www.idownloadblog.com/download/

When done downloading, put it in your seasonpass/download filder and try the jailbreak again. It will start the download but once it sees the file was already downloaded it will unzip it and continue.
