Apple tv 2nd gen jailbreak help

Hello,

I followed the instructions here http://support.firecore.com/entries/387605 and all went pretty smooth, when I was done, my interface looked similar to this one

There was no firecore icon as shown in the tutorial, is there anyway to tell if the jailbreak went through, the firmware on the unit says 5.0.2

thank you

Just got my Apple TV 2nd Gen and follow this steps exactly. when it got to step 5, the Apple TV never restore or recover. It just stuck there, I even let it overnight. When I wake up the next day, it still the same. What did I do wrong? I do have AVG internet security and have it disabled the whole time. I had tried it on both Window XP as well as Window 7. BTW, I have the latest itune as well as the latest SeasonPass. Please advice.
