    I jailbroke 2 Apple TVs in december and have bought this one in february and tried to jailbreak the same way using season pass but iTunes says apple tv cannot be restored this device isn't eligible for the requested build. whats up with that? when I plug it into the tv FC doesn't show up on the bottom yet when I check general and about it says 4.4.4? can someone please help me? is there something I missed or messed up? I need an untethered jailbreak like i have done before but doesn't seem to be working

    when I tried to restore atv2 to 4.4.4 in iTunes before doing anything else it says The Apple TV "apple tv" could not be restored. this device isn't eligible for the requested build.
