4th time of doing it & got it to work straight away :). I do have one question though., if i put my AppleTV to sleep or it goes on standby, will i need to boot tether it again?

I'm a DJ, producer, gamer & geek. I work for the super-club brand Slinky & I'm also the label manager of Digital Remedy + a director at Promo Push

 Thanks for this. It's what actually got Seas0nPass to work flawlessly on my macbook pro. No errors with restore at all. You have to do the same thing each time you do a tethered boot as well.  before this, i was getting pretty much every different error you could think of Grin 1600/1602 mainly

This might sound stupid but how can you tell that the ATV2 is successfully jailbroken?

Hi James, Is it correct that I have to connect the TV by the HDMI cable to run the JailBreak properly? I'm having problems getting it running, and maybe this is the clue. However my TV set is two floors down, so it's rather inconvenient.

No - you"ll only need to do a tethered reboot if you switch off completely.

how long should "patching ramdisk" take?  Mine has been going for half-hour and so I'm wondering at what point do I know that it's not working and I should start over?  Thanks.

I tried this about five times and gave up after the last time (which finally seemed to have worked) left my atv unable to detect my wifi network (or any other network either).

I'm currently restoring to factory and will wait and see as this project matures.
