Few minutes ago announced GreenPois0n RC6 for Untethered Apple TV 2G!!
Hope some brave soul will post a reply after they have tried this and are successful :) or not....
GreenPois0n is good to go! I attempted to use SeasOnPass several times previously without success. GreenPois0n worked on the first try. However, aTV Flash installer says it's finished, I see the AppleTV menu flash, but now Maintenance menu. What now?
Try to reinstall Firecore again. Let me know if it works.
Just tried this several times, it get's as far as apparently starting the jailbreak and then crashes...great
Worked like a charm for me, i did a restore in Itunes before atempting.
During the jailbreak it says to plug in both your usb cable and power, make sure to unplug the power cord again after aprox 3 seconds. It isnt clear in the instrutions that you need to unplug it agian.
1. Plug in your ATV 2 with the usb, and run GP.
2. Plug in the powercord for 3 sec, and unplug.
3. Hold down menu and play / pause for 7 seconds.
4. When its in DFU, click "Jailbreak"
5. Once its completed, let it stay plugged in for atleast 40 seconds before removing.
6. The first time you start up your ATV 2 after the jailbreak a new menu called Greenp0ison will show up, from here you can install various apps including XBMC.
Hope this helps, Good luck.
Windows 7, x64 bit.
Worked perfectly and all software installed now I just need to figure out what I'm going to do with it.
I've got the same problem...i've jailbroke using GP, has the greenpoison app, but after a successful ATV install, it dont see maintenantce menu
I had the same problem with season pass a few weeks ago, but i just rebooted and it appeared, here it doesnt even after reboot
EDIT: now my atv cant connect to my wifi network, it doesn see the network, i reboot the router and atv but nothing,
restored my aTV2G, ran greenpois0n, says the jailbreak is complete, i wait about 45 seconds, plug in HDMI and get nothing. i don't even hear anything. tried it a few times and also had a few times where i did the initial aTV setup, then it shows nothing at all. new seas0npass isn't even working properly either. i run that, ipsw installs through iTunes, i tether boot, then there's no maintenance menu on the main menu. pointless... any help is appreciated. thanks peeps.
Using mac version
was quite fiddley - timing was the issue and having the power cord inserted.
If you have difficulty getting ATV2 into DFU mode - try menu/down combination for 7 secs then menu/play for 7 secs - greenpoison will detect once you have successfully gone into DFU mode. Then it worked and then I had the steady LED light once completed.
Worked like a charm for me, i did a restore in Itunes before atempting.
Me too. Previously JB with SeasonPass. Did a full restore to factory in iTunes, ran GPrc6, rebooted, then installed ATVFlash. I did have to re-download the new beta, and reboot after the install. But all working fine. Also installed XBMC and now am streaming videos from my HP Mediasmart server too. Very happy.
RC6 works fine - however you may find (as I have) after first reboot no wifi
The workaround is to go into NitoTV-> settings -> restart low tide
Wifi will now be fine
I have to do this everytime Apple TV is rebooted
I give up, I'll be back when there's some half-decent untethered jailbreak software available, but until then I'm just wasting my time
Is it now possible with GP RC6 use the ATV2 tethered with the atv flash?
I've tried reinstalling several time. Still no maintenance menu.
UPDATE: after reading another post, I installed xbmc from the NitoTV and now I have the Maintenance menu on screen.
JBs on IP4s and IPADs went SMOOTHLY. ATV not so much so all I did to get it working was NOT plug in the power cable. All other steps as suggested and at the end, click completed and wait a minute b4 disconnecting micro USB. Hope this helps someone.
1 Click GP JB
2 Connect micro USB
3 Hold Menu and play for 7 seconds
4 Wait for process (you will only see status bar on mac/windz)
5 Hit complete and wait a minute
6 Unplug mUSB and ouila
7 Install GP and nito......have fun
To clarify - on an IP$, you will see the code injecting on the IP4 screen. On an ATV, there is no screen and you do not see code on the mac or PC you are using to load GP on your i device. Thus, just look at the status bar in the GP window to tll when its done. About three minutes by my guestimate. Then hit complete and wait another minute. Ouila.
It worked!! Untethered jailbreak!!.
yes yes yes!! Finally after two months of waiting. now can install all the good software on my Apple TV 2nd gen.
Pls see my post below to get GP working. I think it may help. Then you can inject FCs beta.......worked for me.
i had same problem. i restore atv to factory settings through itune and jailbreak again. it worked second time. i had same exactly same problem.
YES YEAHWe (OSX) have wait too for the untethered JB
Finally......GP r6 worked flawless for me........I do have a question though........everything with the exception of couch surfer is included in the GP jailbreak.........help me understand why I should install ATV Flash........with all the issues...........don't want to have wifi issues as others have!
after working for a few tests
1) wifi issues still exist
2) instable playback of streamed video (crashes after ten to 20 minutes of playback when using XBMC).
so still a beta. greenpoisen should be tested more.
Thanks for this tip Jimbo19. I have this exact problem and haven't restarted the ATV on my second jailbreak as i was too scared of the wifi dropping out. I will try this on the next reboot.
I think this is a common fault and should really be posted as a known bug right in front of everyone...otherwise we all end up wasting time over the same thing.
even though I bought a license on the night of release of the win version, I will refrain to install atv until I understand if it breaks the GP jb which, for me, worked out pretty (on a stock atv) well after some timing problems and having understood that after the frist countdown screens one has to disconnect from power the atv and THEN click JB button.
WIfi seems to work. xbmc works like a charm retrieving hd movies from my synology nas. I will not install anything until I understand what it breaks.
BTW in the download area I can find always one file. Is it the latest?
+ I thought that on end of the beta phases the beta buyers would be entitled to one year of upgrades from that moment.
If what is written in the dld area is true, this is not the case (yet)
Think I'm with you on waiting and go slow.........when FireCore gets the ATV flash out of beta.....they will reset our support to one year.........be well....
LOWTIDE restart seems to fix the wifi issue
It took about 3 minutes to jailbreak with GP RC6 on windows 7 and was super EASY. That also installs nitoTV. Then installed atvFLASH black beta 3 , also windows 7. At first the maintenance menu did not show up. I installed XBMC from the nitoTV menu, then restarted lowtide, also in nitoTV. Then the "maintenance' menu showed up and allows installation of other software like couch surfer and lastFM. I have rebooted/re-powered my ATV2 several times and it comes back fine every time.
I had not previously jailbroken my ATV2 in tethered mode.
I don't use wifi on the ATV2 so can't say anything about that, but with hard wired connection works fine.
All the stuff that I have tried from firecore works fine except that while running lastFM, and also using couch surfer at the same time, I got a low memory warning, and eventually the ATV2 rebooted on its own. This happened only once so far.
THANKYOU greenp0ison for the JB!
anyone have experience, after a jb with GP rc6 from fresh itunes restore, seems everything working: injected cydia and nito tv installed, ssh works, but if you unplug power cord and relaunch ATV2 it show a black screen in the tv?? software will be loaded because on pressing the remote I hear sound from my tv.
I was unable to "killall" via ssh because I don't known if it was connect to wifi....unique chance reinstal again everything...and don't unplug power cord...
any suggestion? I try it 2 times also over a seasonpas jb
If RESTORE does not work. Then JAILBREAK it again. I did the RESTORE via the ATV2 itself. worked fine.
make sure you have those SHSH files backed up via TINYUMBRELLA!!
Stay in the loop with new product announcements and updates.
