    I have a problem with my Jailbroken untethered ApplyTV2. Netflix has completely stopped working for no apparent reason, so I would like to restore it but do not want to loose my 4.4.4 firmware. How can I restore it without upgrading to the latest firmware/ maintain an untethered jailbreak?

    Thanks all!

    Not unless you saved the SHSH for the version you want to restore to.

    Why not upgrading to 5.3 using the new Seas0nPass untethered JB?

    Thanks for the replies all.

    Henry, I was thinking of this but it's been so long since I've done this, I was unsure how to do it. If I run SeasonPass again like it was stock/ unjailbroken, will it automatically upgrade me to 5.3 untethered?

    The latest Seas0nPass software automatically updates the ATV2 to 5.3 and implements an untethered jailbreak.
    AFAIK this still works since Apple didn't stop signing the 5.3 firmware yet. (Updated mine about 3 weeks ago)

    Just visit Seas0nPass at http://seas0npass.com/ and dl the latest JB software.
    I recommend to take the time and watch the video tutorial provided, particularly regarding when and how to put the device in DFU mode during JB installation.

    Yeah, I'm not sure what I was thinking, it was a very easy fix. Just ran SeasonPass as usual and now running 5.3 Untethered with no problems.

    Also, for those that are having Netflix issues as well, just be sure to upgrade to 5.3. My other appleTV 2 running 4.4.4 also stopped working, so it must be something netflix is no longer supporting (I assume it is the account profile selection is now mandatory for netflix users).

    Thanks again Henry for all the help!
