I have been using ATV2 4.4.4 jailbroken (untethered) perfectly for several weeks. Yesterday XBMC crashed and I had to restart the ATV by holding down both the MENU & PLAY/PAUSE buttons on the remote. After it rebooted the iTunes logo appeared and the LED flashes repeatedly. 

What can I do to get it back up and running with 4.4.4?

Was this a thehered or untethered jailbreak of 4.4.4?

The symptoms you describe suggest a tethered jailbreak, and that the ATV2 is now waiting to be connected to your PC/Mac via USB to complete the tethered boot process.

I am sure it was an untethered. 

So does that mean I need to re-jailbreak it again using the guide with the SHSH stuff??

I had this.

Just unplug the ATV from the mains and plug back in. Then Just wait. Should start up eventually.

Just keep trying.

Benano, I'm seeing the exact same issues with 5.0.1; upon upgrade I see that this has come up after a successful flash and cannot seem to get it to revert.  Any luck?

I am having the same issue with the ATV 5.0 but what i always do is to connect the usb to the ATV and let it boot tethered. although its a pain plugging the usb in and out with the season pass but it works after its done.
