    They are still needed for upgrading because you are upgrading to a firmware that Apple isn't signing anymore.

    Plug it into your computer and use TinyUmbrella to check.

    Chances are that you don't have them, unless the previous owner saved them. when you get it, download Tiny Umbrella software, connect the AppleTV to the computer (You are going to need a micro USB cable that is not included with the Apple tv) and run the App, it will tell you what you have.
