FireCore team has released a new version of Seas0nPass 0.8.2 to jailbreak Apple TV. The latest version includes a new feature called firmware ‘stitching’ which will enables the users to downgrade to firmware by saving the signatures of the older firmware.
iOS users might already be aware that Apple stops signing older firmware soon after the release of the new firmware update and which disables users to restore to previous firmware if they update once to new firmware. With the Seas0nPass 0.8.2 you can save the firmware signatures of the older firmware, which can then be used anytime to restore to previous versions.
This is similar to SHSH blobs saving for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. To save firmware signatures you need to use either TinyUmbrella or can directly save using aTV Flash (black). Firmware signatures are unique to each AppleTV and firmware version. You can download the Seas0nPass 0.8.2 from the link below.
How to Downgrade AppleTV to Older Firmware Using Seas0nPass
If you have used TinyUmbrella or aTV Flash (black) to previously save your AppleTV’s firmware signatures you can use Seas0nPass to downgrade to an older version using the following steps below.
- Connect AppleTV via USB
- Launch Seas0nPass
- Right-click the ‘Create IPSW’ button and select your desired version.
- Seas0nPass will handle fetching saved signatures and restoring the firmware automatically.
Note: If you’re receiving a ‘not eligible’ message, this means Apple is no longer signing that particular version, and Seas0nPass was unable to locate any saved signatures for that device/firmware combination.
