apologies if this is in the wrong place. My wife's uncle has given me his ATV 2 to look at as XBMC has disappeared and straight away I can see he is now running 5.3. I'm assuming there is no way to re-jailbreak it but is there a way to roll back the software to 5.2 and go from there?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Barrie

Be aware it is a tethered jailbreak.

That's not a big issue on ATV, but you'll news to remember EVERY time you remove the power from the atv you have to boot it with a pc.

was your atv jailbroken if so try using ifaith to check and see if somehow your shsh blob for your previous firmware was automatically saved.
