    So after returning a crappy boxee that I got my gf for her bday, I took a chance and bought a brand new unopened atv2 off ebay, to which the seller attested it was bought in 11/11.

    Now I'm not very familiar with jailbreaking personally, but have witnessed it in all its glory. From my understanding the best firmware versions for atv2 were 4.3 and 4.4.4 maybe some more im not sure, but those seem to be the untethered ones.

    Anyway to get on with it... my hope is that this particular atv2 will have the older firmware on it. If so can anyone maybe confirm which it might have if it was purchased in 11/11?

    If it is an older firmware, will it automatically update upon fist boot up?

    If it is the newest firmware is there a jailbreak for that or way to regress to a latter firmware?

    If it is an an older firmware, is it possible to save it to a flash some how?

    Thank you for your time and help.

    4.4 was released October 12, followed by quick bump updates on October 17 (4.4.1) and October 25 (4.4.2)

    4.4.3 was released Nov 17th and 4.4.4 not until December 15th so it's not going to be that. All I'll guess is 4.4.3 or below, as it depends on where it was bought. Different outlets consider them "old stock" when a new release comes out and send them back, some hold and sell.

    I'm sorry I didn't ask the question before the bump.... Are the latter formats i.e. 4.3 and 4.4.4 better firmwares to operate the jailbreak on than the new one? I only ask because it seems like people prefer those. Is this true?

    ok so I went here:

    http://support.firecore.com/entries/387605

    but when I went to download seas0npass zip it said is was for OSX version 10.6 or later

    I have the latest 10.5.8 version on my macbook and when I go to open the file it says I can't use this version of seas0npass.

    Is there not one for the latest version?
