    i was having difficultys too. this is what helped me. make sure that the aptv is not plugged in to the wall, just usb. also, it took forever for my itunes to check my library, and i'd get the error message. season pass was able to make the patched apple tv .ipsw in my finder. soooo.... i just optioned clicked the apple tv in itunes and restored from the patched ipsw from finder. walla!

    now that is jailbroken, the tethered boot. make sure its unplugged, plug in usb, wait for it to flash rapid, then plug in power, then hold menu/play for 7 seconds, then plug in the hdmi before it stop flashing.

    once you get the hang of it, it's not so bad.

    Hey Mike,

    Curious... For the tethered boot, I can't plug my HDMI in at the same time as my micro USB cable, the HDMI connector is too thick. I'm assuming I don't need the HDMI and USB at the same time.

    Also, you don't mention firing up Seasonpass and clicking on the tether in your steps.. I'm assuming that's needed to make it work.

    My main problem right now is no network.. Tether works, but can't connect to anything either on wi fi or ethernet. I've read in some other forums this is a common problem! Going to have to restore to factory and try again :(

    I had the same issue. I just started from the beginning by creating a new custom restore file and the error message went away.

    That's correct it would be almost impossible to plug in both the micro USB and HDMI at the same time. Here's the steps as clearly shown on FireCore when you scroll down to Using Seas0nPass for a 'tethered boot':

    1. Open SeasOnPass and Select the Tethered Boot Option
    2. Plug in The Micro USB and wait until the ATV2 LED rapid flashes.
    3. Plug in the Power Cord
    4. Hold the Menu & Play/Pause buttons the 7 seconds, then release.
    (if you don't see the boot in progress on the Mac screen after releasing the buttons then do step 4 again).
    5. Once the boot is complete SeasOnPass will instruct to remove the USB and Immediately (meaning before the ATV2 LED stops flashing( put in the HDMI cable. In a few minutes you will see the ATV2 home screen on the TV.
