I know this is a common problem. And I know there are answers out there. But none of them worked for me. Here's the dilemna:
After jailbreaking and tether-booting (is that the right way to say it?) ATV (black), I quickly plug in HDMI. The Apple TV successfully shows up on the TV screen. So, I enter wifi, and homesharing passwords. Next I go back to the computer and attempt to install ATV Flash (black). Problem 1: ATV Flash not installed / nothing changes on ATV after computer says "Install Successful." The problem here is most likely the jailbreak process. Something's not right.
Next, I restart the Apple TV (either by holding Menu-down, or physically unplugging it - I've gone through this process several times). Problem 2: On startup, Apple logo screen is displayed, and never goes away. Thus, I need to restore the ATV to factory defaults and start all over again. Again, this must be a problem of the jailbreak process. I have followed all direction carefully, tried every tip out there, and, in total, have probably attempted 12 or 13 times (call me crazy!).
One question (and this may sound dumb): Does the ATV need to be "tether booted" or whatever through Seas0nPass to run ATV Flash (black)?
I would really appreciate some help from anyone. I really want to get something for my money!
Hopeful ATV Flash User (although angry at the moment).
