Cannot update the Apple TV2

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hello all

I have recently jailbroken my Apple TV2 to the untethered version of Seas0nPass and have the latest TV Flash 1.1.1.

I have been updated it before without any problems but now when I am trying to update Apple TV2 IOS 4.3 to IOS 4.4.4, I fail.

I opened the Apple's general setting tab which told me that I am already up to date.

The screenshot of the error is attached below:


The Apple TV "Apple TV" could not be restored. An

unknown error occurred (1601).

                                 More Information          OK

Please if someone can help me resolve the issue, I'll be really thankful.

Waiting for your helpful suggestions,

Kindest regards

Cannot update the Apple TV2


    There might be problem when you updated your Apple TV.  If your from your apple firmware is updated, simply Shift click the button “restore” under Apple TV in itunes (Shift+Click is for PC and Alt+click when you will do it on MAC computer.) If still don’t able to restore, maybe there is problem in your AppleTV host file. So you need to restore the standard firmware. Do factory reset also if you cannot do restoring with standard apple firmware. You can also try to delete the host file from "homefolder"/.ssh/known_hosts. Try those possible ways to fix the error. If those solutions don’t work, find site where you can get pre-pared custom firmware file for you apple T.V.
