Well, I had decided to bite the bullet and install the new ATV flash, but I decided since I have Plex on my new samsung BR player, I could give it a miss on the ATV and install 5.3 with all its goodies + the new flash. It was not to be. Kept failing. In the end I thought I would do as I have done in the past and let apple update it then go back to trying a jailbreak. Sadly… no joy. and when I look at the screen for the latest update, I see there are two more channels which didn’t exist a while back (in Australia, TenPlay and Cricket).
I know that is not what we are jailbreaking, but I am wondering if theres some code in there which is now able to somehow block downgrade jailbreaks. Clutching at straws, I’ll try again tomorrow. About to go out for dinner.
