For people who wants to jail break their Apple TV 2 that is stuck in a firmware version that doesn't support jailbreak and don't have their other machine-specific jail-breakable shsh blobs.

Credit goes to the whole FireCore forum collective (CYBERxNUKE, ormanton, ih8sn0w, Firecore, mosf1959, matty, ryanh.4594, jailbreak programmers, Sako, and everyone else who contributed ?? ) for the initial discovery and refinement of this method.  The instructions for this procedure are also found buried in the other thread started by MightyJew titled "Jailbreak for 5.1 ATV Gen 2."  I hope that this new thread will make it more accessible.

The template for the instructions below was shamelessly taken from www.JailbreakAppleTV.com! :)  

System Requirements:

  • Windows PC (this doesn’t yet work for Mac unfortunately)
  • Latest Version of Apple iTunes Installed
  • Apple TV 2 Running any firmware version, including the latest 5.1

Before Starting, Download the Following Support Files and Save them to a New Folder on your Desktop:

         If you are able to download the ready-to-flash firmware above, skip Parts 1, 2, and 3.  Follow the directions starting from Part 4.

Once the files have been download, Extract the compressed Seas0nPass and iFaith compressed folders, then Install Total Commander. Once that’s been done, continue following the instructions below carefully. 
Part 1 – Building Signed Firmware Revision (Device Unplugged)

Step 1: Open iFaith and Choose “Build signed IPSW w/ Blobs” and follow the on screen prompts.

Step 2: Select “Browse for SHSH Blobs cache” and open the 4.4.2 (9A336a) SHSH Blobs file you had saved (000000000000000_Apple_TV_2-4.4.2_(9A336a)-blobs.ifaith).

Step 3: Choose “Browse for the iOS 4.4.2 (9A336a) IPSW” and open the Apple TV 4.4.2 Firmware file you had saved  (AppleTV2,1_4.4.2_9A336a_restore.ipsw).

Step 4: Wait, then click “Build IPSW” when prompted.

Step 5: Once it’s done Saving the File to your Desktop, it will say “Done building IPSW” in the header, DO NOT CLICK the “Proceed” button, close the program instead.

Part 2 – Build Custom Firmware with Seas0nPass (Device Unplugged)

Step 1: Launch Seas0nPass, right click “Create IPSW”, and select firmware version "4.4.2 9A336a".

Step 2: Wait for Seas0nPass to finish downloading and modifying the IPSW from Apple, this will take a few minutes at least.

Step 3: Once you see “Waiting for device to enter DFU mode…” it means that this part of the procedure is done, close Seas0nPass.

Part 3 – Modify Image Files with Total Commander (Device Unplugged)

Step 1: Create a New Folder within the Folder that was created at the beginning of this guide, name it “Finish”.

Step 2: Drag the Seas0nPass Firmware file (located within the My Documents -> Seas0nPass folder) that was created in Part 2 of the procedure into the Total Commander shortcut Icon located on your Desktop.

Step 3: On the Right Side of the Total Commander window, navigate to the “Finish” folder we created in Step 1 of this part of the procedure. The desktop can usually be found under the “Users -> [Login Name] -> Desktop” folder tree.

Step 4: Drag the two DMG files from the Left Side of the Total Commander window to the “Finish” folder on the right side, agree to any prompts.

Step 5: Close Total Commander, then drag the iFaith Signed IPSW located on your Desktop into the Total Commander shortcut icon, reopening the application.

Step 6: Drag the two DMG files that were previously moved to the right side of the window in Step 4, into the Firmware Archive on the left side of the window.

Step 7: Allow it to Overwrite, agree to any on screen prompts and wait for it to finish writing.

Step 8: Once complete, close Total Commander, you now have a signed Firmware File on your Desktop.

Part 4: Flash Signed Jailbroken Firmware to Device (Device Plugged)

Step 1: Launch iFaith Once Again and plug Apple TV back into Micro USB.

Step 2: Choose “Use DFU Pwner (iREB)” and Follow on screen prompts.

Step 3: Your device has now been forced into DFU Recovery Mode, agree to proceed and then Close iFaith.

Step 4: Launch iTunes and wait for it to recognize Apple TV device.

Step 5: Hold the SHIFT key, Press the “Restore” button in iTunes.

Step 6: Open the Jailbroken Signed Firmware File that was previously saved to your Desktop named something like “00000XXXXXXXXXX_iFaith_Apple_TV_2-4.4.2 (9A336a)_signed.ipsw” and wait for iTunes to flash the device. Ignore the Error 1600 and close iTunes.

Part 5: Tether Boot your Apple TV 2

Step 1: Connect the power and Micro USB cords to your Apple TV 2.

Step 2: Launch Seas0nPass, right click "Boot Tethered" and select "4.4.2 9A33a"

Step 3: When Seas0nPass is done delivering the necessary files to your Apple TV, disconnect the Micro USB cable and connect the HDMI cable.

Congratulations! Your device has now been Jailbroken and is running 4.4.2 firmware. You can now use it as Apple definitely didn’t intend it be used. Remember, you read it first at www.JailbreakAppleTV.com !
We’d like to give special thanks to the people that helped make this special DFU programming process possible, thanks goes out to CYBERxNUKE, ormanton, ih8sn0w, and Firecore for contributing to this guide.

OK I went through all of the steps nothing seemed to go wrong.. I boot tethered  tells me it is safe to unplug usb and plug in the HDMI.  I do this while not removing the power cord but the light keeps blinking and nothing comes up? did I brick this or am I just missing something?

IS there a solution for Mac/OSX yet? It's so cool people have worked all this out (very smart!) but now I'm jealous of your Windows dudes! Smile

Hi at all,

finaly ive got it.... ^^

Many thanks at all that contributet to the solution. Grin

----------INFO--------------

Ive followed the instruction to the letter and had an odd incounter with iTunes Error 1600... Lights Blinking and so on.... ive ignored that and booted Tethered with success..

Followed the instructions on Firecore on installing aTV Black and presto.. Eveything works. ^^

------Question----------

Is it possible to go to the 4.4.4 Version that is untethered like a jailbrocken update?

 

5.1 Original ---->4.4.2 Jailbrocken ---->4.4.4 Upgrade Jailbrocken

 

Best regards

Val.

Tethered means that if I unplug or reboot the atv2 I lose the jailbreak right?

Can I install XBMC on the atv2 after doing this?

this has failed 10x now on me and i think it may be due to the fact that i'm running all this on an xp virtual machine?  perhaps the usb connection isn't as direct (?) as it needs to be?

 

if i take my atv2 in to work where i have the only access to a pc i've got, and get the restore done in itunes, will i be able to bring it home to tethered boot using seas0npass?

Yes, just bring it home and run seas0nPass>boot tethered.

You will not lose the jailbreak, you would just have to run seas0nPass and select Boot Tethered.    As well you will be able to install XBMC.

This works great; I was able to downgrade 5.0 to 4.4.2. Thank you for the post.

However when I tried to boot-tether it using another computer, the Boot Tethered option in Seas0nPass is greyed out. I'm stuck; I can't boot it up without using the laptop that built the signed firmware. Is this expected or is there something wrong with my computer? Any help is appreciated.

Are you sure you have this version of seas0nPass on your other computer?

Seas0nPass 4.4.4 0.3.52.4905 ?  If not download it from the first post on your other computer.

There is nothing wrong with your computer.  Have Seas0nPass on your new computer build the custom 4.4.2 firmware (but don't install it) and the "booth Tethered" should become available.

Good luck.  From my own experience, I was not able to tether boot my 4.4.2 using the mac version of Seas0nPass.  It found my device in DFU mode, but failed to inject the files.

Hey!

Long time lurker.... first time poster.

Wonder if anyone can shed any light as to why this works on 4.4.2, but not 4.4.4... What is it about THESE 4.4.2 shsh blobs that allows us to use them on any device? What would be necessary to use a similar method on a 4.4.4 build. How can we get 4.4.4 shsh blobs with the same errr type O blood type? Smile

 

Thanks - prolly a dumb question. Just curious.

FOR THOSE WITH THE STEADY BLINKING LIGHT*** (I thought I'd sign up finally and contribute at least this much since I ended up figuring out the issue)

At the seasonpass step to boot tethered, DO NOT BOTHER LISTENING TO THE PROGRAM TELLING YOU TO PUSH THE PLAY AND MENU BUTTON! ATV DEVICE IS ALREADY IN DFU MODE! JUST BE VERY PATIENT AND LET THE PROCESS RUN! ALSO, AFTER IT SAYS IT'S OKAY TO UNPLUG, DO NOT DO THAT UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY SEE THE LIGHT STAY A SOLID COLOR! ABSOLUTELY NO BLINKING!!!!

The result? A successful jailbreak!

Thanks in advance to the users that contributed as I have been following these posts for awhile before finally deciding to make an account! I believe certain credit should be given to those who were responsible though...

Thanks in advance to the users that contributed as I have been following these posts for awhile before finally deciding to make an account! I believe certain credit should be given to those who were responsible though...

wow, it's hard to please this crowd.  Please feel free to point out who I've failed to give credit to on the first post.  I'll gladly add them.  No worries and cheers!

Hello Just wanted to thank everyone who has worked on this, good job.

Next, I did this jailbreak on my Desktop with windows but my tv is in another room and my laptop is a mac. Is there a version of Seas0nPass for mac that will let me do a tethered boot on 4.4.2, I tried the latest Seas0nPass and it did not work.
