FireCore have released an update to Seas0nPass taking it to version 0.8.2.

Here is what they said:

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.

What are signatures? Why do I need them?

Firmware signatures are required to install a particular firmware version onto iOS devices like the AppleTV. When installing the latest version, these signatures will be created in real-time during the iTunes restore process.

However, from time to time some firmware versions will stop being ‘signed’ by Apple, which will prevent them from being installed. Backing up your firmware signatures allows you to retain the ability to install an older firmware version in the future, should the need ever arise.

Firmware signatures are unique to each AppleTV and firmware version.

How do I get it?

As always, Seas0nPass is available as a free download from Seas0nPass.com.

Last year we told you about a service from ChevronWP7 Labs that enabled you to unlock your Windows Phone. This service is currently no longer available.

Chevron_thumb1

According to various sources, ChevronWP7 Labs did a deal with Microsoft for an initial 10,000 unlock tokens, which have now all been used.

As yet ChevronWP7 haven’t said if they will ask Microsoft for more, but I guess given that all 10,000 have been sold in just two months the service was very popular.

Did you use it?

Full details on what’s new in 4.4, status of 3rd party features, and how to update are below..

Should I update?

Currently the jailbreak for 4.4+ is tethered, which is a bit less convenient than an untethered version. If the features added in 4.4 excite you it may be worth updating; however, the previous 4.3 version will continue to be supported so updating is not required.

Apple has also added support for subtitles in Netflix and three new slideshow themes: Photo Wall, Flip-up, and Shifting Tiles.
