    IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOMEONE IS DOING SOMETHING NASTY!
    Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
    It is also possible that the RSA host key has just been changed.
    The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the remote host is

    What does this mean? I was able to get in using my apple tv ip address. That is what I got up there when I did ssh root@apple-tv.local

    Also, I used season pass then installed XBMC and then tried greenpoison but I'm not sure if it worked. I can reboot untethered but I'm not seeing nito tv. It says im on version 4.1.1. I'm a total noob to all this and afraid i'm screwing things up!

    Had the same problem myself this morning after JB with GreenPois0n yesterday, follow the instructions in this thread:

    Worked like a charm for me, and it meant that I could finally SSH into my ATV2 and correct the time on XBMC which had been bugging me all night!

    Let us know how it goes ;)
