    Anyone have any experience with any of them. Are they reliable hacks? What to look for?

    Also how do you avoid updating the atv to avoid erasing the jailbreak?

    Don't spend extra $ buying a pre-jailbroken ATV2. Just buy one and do it yourself.

    Step 1) http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW-TO:Install_XBMC_on_Apple_TV_2

    Step 2) http://www.xbmchub.com/oldforums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=599&sid=b747dfa00d044b91f3a3605f78923527

    and maybe

    Step 3) http://passion-xbmc.org/addons/?Page=View&ID=plugin.program.repo.installer

    Other than that you'll have to become comfortable SSH-ing into your ATV2 and with using the Terminal application.

    I went to ebay to check around the ATV sellers, I found it funny how they advertise the "Adult Edition", loaded with porn. and there are a lot fo them.

    Anyways, OP, most of the sellers got good feedback so you should be fine if you go that route.

    As mentioned before, Jilbreaking and installing app on the ATV is no really that hard, you can save some money doing it yourself, there are almost infinite amount of guide, videos and forums thread about pretty much anything you can do with it.

    keep and eye on this website, the usually post the latest news and guide on the Apple tv http://www.appletvhacks.net/
