The new version of Seas0nPass makes it easy to install older Apple TV firmware using a process called stitching, which makes use of previously saved firmware signatures (SHSH blobs) to restore the second generation Apple TV with an older Apple TV firmware file that Apple may no longer be signing.
You typically want to downgrade to an older Apple TV firmware if you’re having issues with the latest version or there is no jailbreak available for it.
FireCore announced the release of Seas0nPass 0.8.2 on their blog:
Today we are happy to release a new version of Seas0nPass that simplifies the installation of older firmware versions. This process called ‘stitching’ allows Seas0nPass to utilize previously saved firmware signatures to jailbreak and restore an AppleTV version that Apple may no longer be signing.
You can download the latest version of Seas0nPass (and user guides) at seas0npass.com.
As always, let us know how it goes and what you think of the new features in the comments.[via FireCore blog]
