Did you try to unplug the electric power cable and plug again? 

That worked for me after several attempts with BTStack "BT not available" or something similar.

Good luck.

Thanks! Seems like I can't load or install any apps, it just freezes after a while. And I can't see the same apps in Plex Online on the ATV2 that I can on my mac (some are missing on the ATV2). Do I need to change any settings in the Plex server? I've read somewhere (old info from nov 2010) that only video playback is working. No music, no images, no app-management. Is it still like this?

Hey,
I have the same problem...
Is there any solution to fix it without paying?

What is the first step to Jailbreaking my Brand New, aTV 2? Do I need connect and update to itunes first or go right to seas0npass?

Thanks for the help

Submitted by Anon on January 5, 2012 - 3:08am

I rebooted my computer and aTV and retried. This resolved the issue.

Hi there,
 
I have some BD backups but they are not displayed among other files in the screen menu.
These are some MKVs I created and have around 30GB to 50GB, depends on each movie.
 
Does ATV and/or firecore software supports these files ? What to do ? If not, is there a future upgrade to do that ?
 
thank you.
 
P.S.: I have successfully updated to the latest firmware and jailbrake.

Hi 

After jailbreaking and installing aTV today, i do not have netflix anywhere.

I have apple tv software version on 4.4.4 (3330) and aTV flash version 1.1.1.

thanks

 

Submitted by Anon on January 7, 2012 - 4:44am

Could you be more specific? Did you re-install atv flash again?

Submitted by Anon on January 7, 2012 - 1:04pm

Solved for me as well... I was having a problem with iTunes when it would start "preparing Apple TV for restore". Eventually, it would timeout with "Restore failed". Reverting back to iTunes 10.5 (http://www.oldapps.com/itunes.php?old_itunes=6704?download) worked.

Submitted by Anon on January 8, 2012 - 12:39pm

Do you use File Vault?

PROS: I installed Livestreams plugin on XBMC. I added a xml file with HD tv from Europe and is looks fantastic!..i mean the display, it's pure HD
CONS: If I try to get out of the Livestreams and I want to use another app in XBMC or to use again the Livestream it's crashing entire XBMC! It's froozen! I got to restart entire Apple tv and then sometimes it keeps crashing XBMC when I try to use it! I got to restart 3-4 times Apple tv , and in the end will work again! This is anoying. Is somebody have the same problem with crash of XBMC or problems with crash of Livestreams??

Submitted by Anon on January 10, 2012 - 8:03am

Hi, I have it crash in lion also Im pretty sure the problem is with xbmc right now cas i just ordered a apple tv and downloaded xbmc to see what it is and running it in lion I get the same stuff you mention... pretty kewl though, cant wait... hope this helps

Submitted by Anon on January 11, 2012 - 6:23pm

Hi,

Try to plug your power in to ATV, follow the same procedure, once iTunes starts restoring, pull your power core off.

Submitted by Anon on January 11, 2012 - 6:30pm

Hi, martinundallvrou,

Regaring to icefilm. I installed it successfully, but I can only watch 1 movie (1 file); means I tried to watch different movie (file), it won't play. I checked back the free space of memory in "setting" (XBMC), I don't thik this is an issure. What action should I take?

Submitted by Anon on January 11, 2012 - 8:17pm

Yes! This is the exact same problem I'm having.  Sometimes it reboot immediately after prompting me for my netflix ID.

Just curious if the performance of XBMC has improved via ISO5?

So glad this is finally updated. I'm tired of having to skip through the "Update Software" screen on my AppleTV. Thanks for all the work you guys do.

PLEASE HELP, I have successfully jailbroken my apple tv 2 with 4.4.4 untethered a few times. Each time i get the red "FC" logo in the bottom right, which by the instructions, confirms that it was jailbroke successfully. Yet when i try to SSH it says connection timed out or another error and when i research that issue i always get the answer that its not jailbroken if u cant find it in SSH(which ive tried thru terminal on mac and the duck one on windows). So am i supposed to just jailbreak it over and over untill it finds it in SSH? i feel like i must be doing something wrong because i dont see other people with same issue really, but i get the FC logo that confirms it.

Iso files and all other movie formats plays smoother on my TV2.

Submitted by Anon on January 17, 2012 - 5:53am

You must plug the power cord in

Submitted by Anon on January 17, 2012 - 11:43am

maybe you're not entering you appleTV's IP address correctly, or your login or password is not entered correctly. if you're timing out, i would guess that you've entered the wrong IP address.

Submitted by superdifficult on January 17, 2012 - 6:40pm

I have solved this problem. The solution is that when the script fails, you go into iTunes, hold the 'Option' key and click the restore button beside the TV which will allow you to select the IPSW that has been altered by Seas0nPass. Just run the update and you're fine.
