Update 4.4.3 to 4.4.4?

Is it possible to update an ATV2 running 4.4.3 to a firmware version that can be jailbroken without tethering, say 4.4.4?

I imagined I could just download the 4.4.4 restore IPSW from a source like this and then option-restore it in iTunes, but apparently iTunes objects to restoring to any firmware that I want?

Thanks for the insight, found out that 5.0.2 is still signed, so I updated to that, then successfully jailbroke.
