[How To] Save Apple TV 2nd Generation 4.0 SHSH To Computer

Having your SHSH files will help you downgrade your Apple TV back to 4.1 from future updates.

Without SHSH blobs, you can not downgrade once Apple has stopped signing the previous firmware.

Follow the steps to save your SHSH blobs for the Apple TV.

 

1. Unplug the power cable and the HDMI cable from your Apple TV

2. Plug in the micro usb cable into your apple tv and into your computer while iTunes is running placing it in Recovery Mode

3. Download TinyUmbrella 4.1.13 for Mac here

4. Go to About This Mac – More Info – Click on the USB tab in left pane – Select Apple Tv from top pane and then copy ECID

5. Open TinyUmbrella 4.1.5 and click on “Advanced Options”

6. The “Requested Version” needs to be set to AppleTV 4.0 and “Request from” Cydia.

7. Paste the ECID into the “ECID” blank field

8. Then click on “Save My SHSH”

You will have to wait a few seconds while it sends the request to Cydia.

Once the step is complete you will see a message saying SHSH have been saved

I am not sure if saving your SHSH works the same way on Windows since I am not sure how to find the
ECID on a windows computer. If anyone knows, post it in the comments and I will add it up here

Windows/PC download TinyUmbrella 4.1.13 -  download here
