Anyone found a resolution to this? I can't seem to find anything on the forum. I'm running an ATV2 on 5.3 using 0.97

ATV 2 won't let me login with AppleID


Hello gentle people,

I have an ATV2 jailbroken with firmware V5.03, but it won't let me login with my appleid - it says that I need to create a new appleid and reverts back to the login prompt.

Had anyone else had this issue? I have tried searching the forum but could not find any discussion around this issue.

Apple TV light rapidly flashing


So I bought a jail broken apple tv 2 from ebay since they don't sell apple tv 2's anymore in stores. When I hooked it up to my TV everything looked fine, except for the fact that I couldn't connect to anything. Whenever I tried any of the applications, even netflix or youtube, it said that they couldn't be accessed at the moment or something like that. I was connected to the internet and it was working fine so my network wasn't the issue. XBMC or whatever said I needed to update it.

[SOLVED] Apple TV 2 bricked (???)



I have an ATV2, which I had jailbroken a couple of years ago and worked fine.
However, I was no longer using it, so decided to sell it, and wanted to clear my data as well as adding the latest untethered jailbreak (5.3).

Jailbreak ATV2 to 6.2.1 (latest software) using Windows


Dear all,

Can't find a clear tutorial, that's why starting this topic.

I want to jailbreak my ATV2 to the latest apple OS 6.2.1 (tethered). Because the stable unthethered version for windows is to old to support airplay with my iphone (ios 9).
Which to my understanding is only release for MAC in seasonpass 0.9.7. I have no MAC device; is there any good tutorial on how to do this using Windows? Probably using VMplayer or won't it work?
