    I tried to spoof my location with Xcode for my Apple TV 4, with a blank app. As soon I did this my network connection dropped and showed an internal IP from the Apple TV (and not WiFi option, only ethernet). So, I hard reset it via iTunes and it still only gives me the option ethernet. Even when I plug it in it does not work and says 'no network connection found'. Also I am not able to set my ethernet up with my iPhone?

    Does anyone have an idea how I can fix this? Or is it totally bricked.

    Thanks for the answer. But I tried this, no success. The Apple TV does not give me the option to connect via WiFi and restricts me to ethernet - even though this does not work. I also tried to fill in my router details manually. But no success.. Seems like the Apple TV is not allowed to go on the internet.

    By hard reset do you mean restoring it via iTunes?

    Yes. Seems like I messed it up with Xcode.

    That doesn't make any sense though. Restoring it should return it all to factory defaults (aka working). You may want to post this to stack exchange.
