    I've been trying to jailbreak my apple TV 2 through Seas0nPass.

    the problem i have is that my appleTV doesn't turn on when i plug it to my 13"macbook pro through micro USB.

    can anyone help? i've used every micro usb in my house and it seems it doesn't work.

    i heard i need to get a charging + data micro usb? i've heard that blackberry charging micro usb works.

    wall plug

    In addition to using the micro usb, you also have to have the apple tv plugged into a wall outlet.

    really? the instructions specifically say NOT to have the appleTV2 plugged in to the wall.

    like the flashing light is supposed to still be flashing with just the connection from apple tv to macbook via mico-usb.

    and of course i did it with the power plugged in, it just get stuck at

    "iTunes script successful" with a process bar that just stays there and the "done" button is grayed out.

    NO, that is incorrect, Jailbreak will failed if you have it plug.

    Either your USB cable is bad, or your USB power is bad.

    Use another USB port, another computer or another cable if possible.

    Note that the ATV won't turn on, but the Computer and iTunes will be able to see it connected.
