    I have not been able to jailbreak my atv NO MATTER WHAT I TRY!

    i have tried seas0npass, atv flash and pawnage, to no avail!

    my main concern is this:

    my atv is in a totally different room than my mac pro, i have tried to use the above named apps and it has not worked,

    since mine is in a different room, i dont have a way to plug in any hdmi cable supposively after it has been jailbroke, and i have to unplug my device entirely and carry it into the other room and hook it all back up, once this is done, all i ever get is either the apple emblem or it shows the little scroll wheel and then goes into the date and time, and loads all normal just like i have not even jailbroke it at all.


    what is the issue? is dfu mode when the little light is flashing like every 1-3 seconds? or is it when it flashes very fast?

    ANY HELP would be greatly appreciated!

    thanks

    Lol jailbreakin your atv2 connected to your pc only installs ssh,after you done ,connect to tv and u have to open terminal/putty on your Mac/pc and run some commands to actually install XBMC and nitotv or plex. Search google is many tutorials. And I

    recommend using seasonpass to jailbreak.
    Mac don't have to be in the same room ,just connected in the same wifi as atv2.
