View Full Version : Restore ATV2 to old firmware.

So I asked that the ATV2 not be updated, but it seems to have been"accidentally/carelessly" initiated, and now has “crashed” and will only flash the white apple.

Is there a safe well explained guide / tutorial to stay on the older firmware, rather than restoring to 5.21, which I think is the latest before 6.0 was redacted, from a mac?

IIRC it was on like 5.2 before it was unceremoniously given an electronic lobotomy.

Restarting does not seem to help.

Is there a limit to which ATV2 firmwares can be jail broken?

Thanks in advance for the help

So I tried to do a restore by option clicking restore, and loading in the 5.2 ipsw, as well as the 5.21 ipsw, and it tells me that “this device is not eligible”

Can I get back to the 5.2?

This is not a JB/hack issue, the last question was merely a quandary to know the correlation iOS ver to JB

you'll have to search the JB forums, but it appears apple has stopped signing those version of software. (the aTV phones home, and verifies that it can still install that software) you'll be able to find out in the JB forums what versions apple is still signing.
Normally they only sign the current version, sometimes they will continue to sign the previous version for a short time when a new one comes out. but you definitely won't be able to go back 2 or more versions.

they did release a new 6.0 monday after pulling the first version due to so many problems.
you want build number 11A502
