to re-write what I wrote (in english this time) --- I'm not able to find the location of the custom IPSW when browsing with itunes's open "file locator" window, due to the fact that one of the folders is hidden (and iTune's lile locator can't seem to view hidden folders??) --- I am however able to find it with the regular finder in this location: ---- *homefolder*/Library/Application Support/Seas0nPass/Firmware ----- From here, I copy the file, paste it on my desktop, and then point itunes to my desktop in attempts to JB my pos atv2. ---- I'm running iOS 5.1.1 btw (52xx) firmware, itunes 11.0 and Seas0nPass 0.8.8.
