    I have been using iClarified's instructions ( ) to jailbreak my ATV2 with the Pwnage tool and all is going well to break my ATV2 until I get to actually try to put the custom firmware onto the machine and get an error message stating..

    'The Apple TV 'Apple TV' could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build'.

    Please help as it's my first time jailbreaking an Apple item.

    I was not aware that Pawnage tool had been updated to permit an untethered JB of the latest Apple TV, 8f455. As far as I know, only Seasonpass will support a UJB, and even then there have been a LOT of issues with getting into DFU mode, etc..... You have to make sure you have the absolute latest versions of itunes, and Seasonpass. There are TONS of threads on this since August, when the latest version came out.
