Can't download latest ATV2 firmware (durango, 8F305)
I am unable to download the latest firmware from apple. Here is what is on my drive:
ls -l /Users/me/AppleTV2,1_4.3_8F305_Restore.ipsw
-rw-r--r-- 1 me staff 303535104 21 Jun 14:50 /Users/me/AppleTV2,1_4.3_8F305_Restore.ipsw
Note the size is 303535104. This is what I am trying to download: http://appldnld.apple.com/AppleTV/04...5_Restore.ipsw
The iphonewiki reports this file has a size of 334,235,633 and the sha1: 26551145dc4b72ccfbc313e24566cfb35437bd09.
Here is what I have tried:
1. Update iOS from ATV2 - After download, failed on error, error message was unreadable.
2. Plugged in to Mac, clicked "Restore" in iTunes - After download, barfed with an error claiming the file was corrupted during download.
3. Downloaded the same link manually (yes the same one iTunes used, I checked with wireshark), clicked Option-"Restore" and selected the file -
I got the same error as with #2 above.
4. Proxied my HTTP GET of the file through an US proxy just in case, but the downloaded file was the same.
5. For some reason (web cache?) the apple store network could fetch the correct file.
How do I get this file? They updated my firmware just fine at the Apple store, but now I need the file in case I need to do a "manual update" again...
Can someone help me get the file?
On second thought, I am not 100% sure the proxy worked, as I was using FoxyProxy in FF and it may not have routed the GET correctly through it. But I am still getting a ~289 MB file instead of a ~318 MB file like from the apple store.
Has this happened to anyone else?
Can someone help me out please?
If you have restored your Apple TV 2 with the latest firmware on your Mac (ie, from iTunes) can you please do the following from the terminal? (copy and paste what is in bold, don't type it, in case you make a mistake)
Joe-blo's Mac-$ sudo find / |grep 8F305 |xargs openssl sha1
1 sudo - do as superuser - to avoid permission errors in case your user Id can't read the file
2 find - recursively enumerate all files from starting point (/ or root, ie the whole filesystem)
3 grep - Get Regular Expression and Print - find any line of text that contains the pattern (here 8F305, part of the expected file name). All other lines are not printed (or passed to the next command)
4 xargs - for each line of input, call the following command on it
5 openssl sha1 - calculate the SHA1 hash of the file and print to screen
I am curious to know if anyone can verify the command reports their file has the hash 26551145dc4b72ccfbc313e24566cfb35437bd09, as reported by the wiki I linked to previously.
I have confirmed that the info from the iphone wiki which I linked to above is actually correct. iTunes was downloading the wrong file. Which means its a routing problem or some web cache has a corrupted file in it or something.
I hope Apple fixes this problem soon. In the meantime, I have obtained the firmware myself. It would be beneficial, in the event that Apple doesn't fix this, for someone to torrent or host this file somewhere.
In the meantime, stay cool.
I have been sooooooooo frustrated over this.....are you able to advise where you gained the firmware file from....you would help me out big time.
