Ormanton. You're clearly a genius.

I'm only a Noob but willing to learn.

I have several Apple TV's and I have just picked on up and purchasing ATV Flash yesterday and finding it doesn't work because Apple unsigned 4.4.4.

The Apple TV I have saved blobs from is on 4.1.1.

Can I still get this to work using 4.3 F855 as per your post 43 and 49 on this thread?

Think I answered by own question there.

Just tried to build custom firmware in iFaith Mode and it states not compatible so am going to download original Apple firmware file 4.1.1 and try to customise that.

4.3 Apple TV (2557) 8F455.

  1. I've tried the latest version of Seas0n Pass, I get a "Apple TV not eligible".
  2. Used an old version of Seas0n Pass, I get 3194 error.
  3. Green Pois0n has finished several times with no visible change, double checked that by trying to SSH in, no luck.
  4. I do have my iFaith blob saved.

Been working on this 3 days, any help is appreciated. System is Windows XP 32 bit, I've used 2 different micro cables, iTunes is 10.6.

I just tried this entire process for the third (count them THREE) times. It worked. Finally, now I only have a 5.1 ATV 2 to try and downgrade so I can do the same thing. That's not going so well.

As I see you missed something somewhere. It easy to get confused during all work from step 1 to step17. It sounds for me that you restored in itunes firmware without 2 custom seasonpass dmg files inside.

All that story in short  would look as that: you are creating  2 firmwares . One signed using ifaith, another custom seasonpass. You shall take out 2 gmg files from seasonpass created firmware and inject it to ifaith signed firmware.  all that ifaith firmware with 2 dmg files from seasonpass restore in itunes usin ireb.

Try again from fresh, delete all files (DO NOT DELETE SHSH BLOBS) and start over steb by step, it MUST work.
