You need to make sure PwnageTool has the newest bundle, this should resolve the issue. 4.2.1 Firmware Bundle -

I've gone through this several times, I opt-click on restore, pick my customer ipsw, iTunes extracts it, starts to verify, then tells me "this device isn't eligible for the requested build." When I click on more information it looks like the error I'm getting is 3194. Any thoughts on where I'm going wrong?

Me too. Works with Seas0nPass, but then I have to boot tethered. This gets to Step 12 in the tutorial and then says (exactly as yours does), that it "isn't eligible for the requested build"

I'm getting the same dialogue: "This device isn't eligible for the requested build." :(

I have an apple tv but I don't know why I need to jailbreak an apple tv. Can u guys tell me benefits after jailbreaking? Can I get free movies or tv shows?
ricekake - December 29, 2010 at 1:45am I just got my ATV and I am getting the same message that it will not support the build. I have tried it on two laptops, two different cables, every usb port. I have tried it with the power cord on, off..with pwnage 4.1 and 4.1.2. Any help?
themoops - December 16, 2010 at 7:16pm
the instructions say DONT have the power plugged in to the ATV to put it into dfu mode. that's not correct.

This does not work It tries to verify with Apple then says you are not able to use this build.

I have iTunes 10.1 - it attempts to check the firmware update with Apple; gives back error update server can not be reached. Anyone experience similar problem?

Dear all How can i connect Apple TV G2 to the PC? It came with out connection cable and it has only Micro USB port or I can use Ethernet port????

If u happen to have an amazon kindle, use the usb charger cord that came with it (or borrow the cord from a friend who has one). it's a perfect match for the atv2.
