    Stay on 4.1, if you come to 5.0.2 say goodbye to Cydia.

    I know if you upgrade to 5.0.2 and jailbreak it, you can add XBMC to it.

    As for me, I haven't looked into it yet, been to busy. I don't know much about XBMC but I really want Plex back on my ATV2, and I haven't seen anywhere on how to install it.

    Yes use seas0npass.

    Correction on my post above!

    I have 5.0.2 installed, and I installed aTV Black from FireCore, and I now have everything they offer and just found out I can install Plex, XMBC, NitoTV via their program as well!

    But I turned on my ATV2 and it asked if I want to update. I haven't yet, but don't know if you can now install 5.0.2.

    Connect ATV2 to computer, put it into DFU mode, start up seas0npass, and create IPSW and it does the rest.

    What are you thanking him for?
