    Hi,

    i seem to have encountered a minor issue with my Apple TV 2 and jailbreaking it.

    the device is seemingly Jailbrokjen as i can SSH onto it. however...

    when it boots up it shows the apple log then stops sending a signal to the TV. the remote seems to work as the light flashes on the unit when i use the remote. Also it reboots itself every so often.

    I can SSH onto the unit and as I look right now the following processes are running:

    Apple-TV:~ root# ps -A
    PID TTY TIME CMD
    1 ?? 0:00.67 /sbin/punchd
    2 ?? 0:00.00 (kern_sploit)
    16 ?? 0:00.07 /usr/sbin/ntpd -n -g -c /private/etc/ntp-restrict.conf
    17 ?? 0:00.00 /bin/bash /usr/libexec/cydia/startup
    20 ?? 0:01.69 /usr/sbin/syslogd -bsd_out 1
    24 ?? 0:01.56 /usr/libexec/lockdownd
    26 ?? 0:00.49 /usr/sbin/mediaserverd
    27 ?? 0:00.14 /usr/sbin/mDNSResponder -launchd
    28 ?? 0:00.37 /usr/libexec/locationd

    33 ?? 0:00.02 /usr/libexec/airtunesd -launchd
    37 ?? 0:00.23 /usr/sbin/BTServer
    38 ?? 0:00.40 /usr/sbin/notifyd
    39 ?? 0:00.52 /bin/bash /usr/libexec/cydia/firmware.sh
    49 ?? 0:00.05 /usr/libexec/hidmonitord
    54 ?? 0:00.00 /bin/bash /usr/libexec/cydia/firmware.sh
    55 ?? 0:00.02 gssc
    67 ?? 0:00.22 /usr/sbin/sshd -i
    99 ?? 0:00.60 /System/Library/CoreServices/ReportCrash
    69 ttys000 0:00.03 -sh
    100 ttys000 0:00.02 ps -A

    I was wondering if it is possible to get the device back to a Factory condition (ideally with a firmware i can jailbreak it again from) so that I can start afresh it would be much apprciated.

    Many thanks

    i finally figurted this out.

    took a clean install of win& and a clean install of Itunes to register the device and so i could restore it with Apple firmware.

    just trying to get an older firmware to install and re jailbreak it now.
