    You need 4.1 SHSH to be able to jailbreak that way. Thats why you are getting that error.

    You would need them to restore to the jailbroken custom firmware. But if you didnt save them before the updates came out then it is too late now.

    You wont be able to save them now. you will have to wait until the jailbreak is updated for the newer firmware.

    Power must be connected for tinyumbrella to detect the Atv2. Unplug power for iTunes. Hope this helps.
