Error 21, 22

Apple TV is not in DFU mode. Re-run Seas0nPass to ensure the Apple TV is in DFU mode before restoring in iTunes.

Error 1600, 1601, etc...

Often times these errors will be false positives. If you're seeing one of these you may simply try connecting the Apple TV to your TV to see if the red FC logo appears in place of the normal settings icon. As long as the red FC is present then your Apple TV has in fact been jailbroken.

If no red FC logo is present then you can try the tips below.

  1. Ensure all other iDevices (iPods, iPhones, iPads, etc...) are disconnected when restoring in iTunes.
  2. Connect ONLY the USB cable. Power, ethernet, HDMI, and optical cables should remain disconnected.
  3. Try using a different USB port and/or removing any USB hubs.
  4. Try an alternate micro-USB cable - a good, low cost cable can be found here.

Error 3194, Apple TV is not eligible, etc...

Apple is no longer 'signing' the version of Apple TV software you are attempting to restore. Update to the latest version of Seas0nPass to jailbreak and install the latest Apple TV version.

If you're certain the latest version of Seas0nPass is being used, then unfortunately there may not yet be a jailbreak available for the current Apple TV software. Check the version info page for more details.

Thanks for your help so far.  I followed your above advice and fixed problems with a 1600 Error, then a .NET error (using Windows 7 (x64)), then a 21 Error.  I am at the stage of restoring in iTunes following download (and patching) of the IPSW file.  I now have iTunes giving me an "Unknown error occured (14)" problem.  Any tips on this one?

I am having the same problem "Unknown error occurred (14)". It seems that this is not all that uncommon, any help would be really appreciated.

  1. Ensure all other iDevices (iPods, iPhones, iPads, etc...) are disconnected when restoring in iTunes.
  2. Adjust 'hosts' file to allow it to communicate with Apple's servers instead of Cydia (details below).
  3. Try an alternate micro-USB cable.

 Hi,After 3 days and several attempts I´m still suffering from a 1601 error even though I clearly followed above instructions.Does anyone have had same issue and did you manage to resolve it?It seems that the trick is to try over and over until you get lucky. I´m not among the lucky ones however...  :(FYI I´m on a MacBook using latest version of ATV 2 4.2.1 (iOS 4.3) + iTunes (10.2.1) + seas0npass (http://support.firecore.com/entries/387605) + no devices other than ATV 2 connected to my MacBook + unchecked the 'Set Hosts to Cydia on Exit' box on TinyUmbrella + closed both TinyUmbrella & iTunes before restoring iTunes + tried 2 brand new micro USB cables.Thanks in advance for your help!

I had 1601, 1602 errors too. Remove the power cord and leave the ATV2 unplugged while restoring, just the usb cable. this helped me finally

Apple tv will not complete restore process via itunes. It gets to about 98% completion but then does not move, it has been frozen for over an hour. Atv is only plugged in via the micro usb, also tried it with the power cord nothing changes. The atv2 is stuck on dfu mode, this all started after trying to to JB with season pass 4.3.1 untethered.

As mentioned before, try using a different cable as it might be the culprit. Try restoring to the standard Apple firmware in iTunes (don't use shift+restore). iTunes will download the latest firmware and reset the ATV2 to factory defaults. If this works, the cable is fine. Unplug the ATV2 and restart the untethered jailbreak process as illustrated in Jailbreaking 101.Eric

I had previously tried the normal/regular restore and update from itunes, same results. I will then purchase a new micro usb cord.
