Apple TV 2 jailbreaking not works with newest iTunes

Forums: 

Hi,

I am new on this forum and on this topic, jailbreaking. I have Windows 7, the newest version of iTunes, seasonpass and the apple usb driver.

I have done the jailbreak with several instructions.

I restored the file "AppleTV2,1_5.3_10B809_Restore" successfully on the apple tv 2 via iTunes.

After this I started seasonpass. The first thing I had to do was to connect apple tv device with the micro-sub cable on the pc. After this season pass worked. I put the device in to the dfu mode. All the stuff was fine with seasonpass!

Solved - Current Seas0nPass 0.9.8 & Atv2 4.4.4

Forums: 

Current Seas0nPass 0.9.8 & Atv2 4.4.4 (iOS 5.0.1 (9A406a))

The jailbreak/restore goes fine using Seas0nPass 0.9.8 on my Mac running Yosemite 10.10.4 (14E46) Itunes 12.5.5

I go thru the initial setup and i see the FC logo in the right corner and everything looks fine until
i go about installing kodi or nito; the install goes without any errors but they don't appear on the ATV2 menu!

Newer Apple apps gone

Forums: 

So I used firecore and Seas0n pass. Am using kodi etc so I know all is working. It looks like many of the newer apple apps are gone? Showtime, history channel etc. almost as if I am using an old tvOS on my second gen Apple TV. How do I get the newer os?

Failed to upload exploit data

Forums: 

Hi there,

I'm trying to jailbreak ATV2 6.2.1 with Seas0nPass 0.9.8 (OSX Sierra), but I'm still getting error after I entered to DFU mode. There are 3 messages showing over and over again:

1. Preparing oversize
2. Resetting DFU
3. Failed to upload exploit data

I stuck there.

Does anybody know what it could be?

Thanks a lot in advance!
