Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

How to fix some mysterious problems.

Great, rebooted apple tv now stuck on a black screen! Wtf!! It's on 4.3 seasonpass, can I hold buttons on the remote to do a reset like holding home and power on an iphone?

Is 4.3 tethered?

Yes, hold the Down and Menu keys on the remote until the front white light starts flashing and then let go.

Yeah I tried that and still nothing. Going to have to restore and loose the jailbreak I believe.

Sorry mate, I think you'll have to get the micro usb cable out for a restore. :(

You can restore/re-jailbreak 4.3 if you have saved SHSH blobs. See the FireCore Site for guidance.

No worries mate, but you can still downgrade if you have your 4.3 blobs. Up to you. ;)
