Seas0nPass needs an update for the new 4.3 (8F455) software that was released on August 1st. An update is currently in the works, and we plan to have it available soon.

As always, it's a good idea to backup your SHSH blobs to ensure you can downgrade your AppleTV in the future (http://support.firecore.com/entries/359097)

Keep an eye on this space for updates.

Update 8/19: The new 4.3 compatible version of Seas0nPass is now available. http://blog.firecore.com/5180

How many weeks? I updated by mistake and I can't downgrade. I just bought it so I might return it and get a new one that has the jailbreakable OS on it.

I just want to let you know that i was able to downgrade from 8f455 to 8f305.

  1. install tinyumbrella and save shsh for the device, uncheck the "set host in cydia" under advanced. SHSH is saved for 4.3.3 (8f305), 4.4b1(9A5220p),  4.4b2(9A5248d)  4.4b3(9A5220f) (first time I save shsh for the device)
  2. Download and install seas0npass, create ipsw
  3. before connecting the usb and entering dfu i opened tinyumbrella and startes tss server
  4. connect usb en entering dfu
  5. itunes opens up and i have to hold alt (option) and select the ipsw myself in my /user/ cataloge.
  6. done, everything works and my atv is jailbreaked.

Hope this can help you.

@ raymondc
Do you see Vimeo under the Internet menu? If not, then you're not running the latest iOS version (4.3). My guess is your ipsw gave you v4.2.2. This version lacks Vimeo and the new cloud feature.

I can confirm what alchamy was writing. Worked fine for me as well. Had just bought the ATV2 (came with 4.1.1) and upgraded as first thing. Only then I checked for Seas0nPass and noticed that I should not have upgraded. But as said the downgrade from 8F455 to jailbroken 8F305 was no problem.

Here's hoping we hear from you guys soon.  My Apple TV is great for XBMC but is useless on the iTunes store right now since it is on the old ISPW.  Any news on the update front?

I just wanted to say that I followed the instructions that alchemy has left and i've successfully downgraded the apple software update.  I still have all the apple functionality plus I now have TV flash black installed :).  It took me a couple of attempts but when I carefully followed the instructions it worked straight away.

I keep trying alchemy's instructions step by step and am getting error 1601. One thing I notice is that after connecting the usb and putting it into dfu mode is in iTunes there appears to be two Apple TVs. What am I doing wrong? I've checked the hosts file and everything is fine there.

denpub, try to remove user/documents/tethed and re-run the process. I think I had some problems with it another time, a ipsw file that only weight around 34mb.

I struggled getting my aTV jail broken, and this is what I found got in my way:

  1.  Turn off Web Sharing (it prevents Tiny Umbrella from doing it's thing)
  2.  I had to manually add the ECID into Tiny Umbrella  (this is the page that really helped me:  http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/wiki/Beginners_Guide... )
  3.  I had to turn on the TSS server in Tiny Umbrella to block iTunes from checking in with Apple to see if the firmware I was loading in was OK
  4.  THEN I ran Seas0nPass  (and it worked the SECOND time I ran it)

 

So far it's working great... I am running the Jail Broken 4.2.2 (sorry if this is the wrong thread...)

James,

I've been jailbreaking iPhones since the beginning.  I know how much work it is to get these packages right and ready for public consumption.  Being new to the AppleTv, I just wanted to stop and say thanks for your hard work in getting this out for us.

I have 4.3 (2557), is it possible to jailbreak my appletv? Is 2557 and 8F455 the same?

Zarge, They are working on an update for ATV2s running the new 4.3 firmware. I believe 2557 is the build number (my Apple TV says 4.3 (2557) as well), but it's possible when James originally wrote this thread talking about 4.3 there was a different build. That's my guess at least. Hope that helps.

Thanks to alchemy and jsi.miles

 

alchemy's suggestion of deleting the tether folder solved the issue. There are some great tips in your post jsi.miles I'll save that for future reference.

Yes, it is same. 4.3 (2557) is software version and 4.3 (8F455) is OS Build version. It was released on 1-Aug-2011

Hi Guys

First of all a big thank you for the fantastic work you are all doing the aTV Flash (black) is simply superb.  I know your probably fed up of us all nagging but have you any idea of a timescale for a Jailbreak for 8F455?, its not like you guys to take this long (so i can only gather its a hard one to break??).  Either way, keep up the great work.

Amazing Work! Thanks guys!!

If we are running 4.2.1 do we need to update with Apple through the Apple TV before installing new new SeasOnPass? Or will it automatically handle that update for us?

Running Seas0nPass will also update the AppleTV software to the latest version.

Easy peasy.

Jailbreak worked great!  Unfortunately after resinstalling aTV Flash, Plex isn't showing up even though it said it installed.
