    I don't know what to do anymore I tried JB my ATV2 the last few hours. I used greenpoison RC6. I do everything like it instructs me on my Macbook Air. Says "jailbreaking" then "complete". I wait around a minute (always longer than the 40 secs). press complete and unplug it. Plug in power and hdmi and it loads. I get no greenpoison menu and can't establish SSH from my Macbook (ssh root@atvip that's right or not?).

    I tried the JB with power cable attached and without but there is no difference. Do you guys have any ideas what I could try out?

    When I did it I got no additional menu, but I had SSH access.

    It's SSH (IP of ATV)
    login: root
    pass: alpine

    If that gets you in you pwned the ATV2. Oh, don't have updated to the latest ATV2 release, if you have you're going wait for the jailbreak for that.

    I had exactly the same problem. Turns out that you have to wait for 40 seconds AFTER you press "complete", and then unplug.
