    Really stuggling here

    Failed upgrade / jailbreak on apple tv 2

    Trying to restore - either modified ipsw or straight from apple - gives a 1611 error

    Tried everything i can think of - in DFU, out of DFU, iREB, Tiny Umbrella (i've got SHSH blobs going back for a few firmwares.

    Tried 3 machines (2 x pc and 1 x mac) including a fresh install of win7 and itunes10.
    Tried 2 different usb cables.

    Even tried xcode to restore - no luck

    Any ideas or has it gone for good ???

    Also tried kicking it in / out of recovery using Tiny Umbrella (doesn't seem to have much / any impact)

    It shows up under Recovery Devices in Tiny Umbrella as a 9 or 10 digit number and when i hit exit recovery the number that appears sometimes changes.....

    iTunes does identify it as an apple tv but as i said gives a 1611 on restore

    1611 means you've not correctly got it into DFU mode. PwnageTool's DFU helper is the most useful I've seen. If it says "you're in", you're in.

    Tried a 3rd cable - alternate between 1600 and 1611 errors

    It looks like a brick :(

    Try hitekalex's method HERE to get a problem ATV2 into DFU mode. It worked for me when mine wouldn't.

    Still no go

    PwnageTool reports that i'm in DFU but i still get 1600/1611 errors

    The apple tv seems to connect and disconnect a number of times during the attempt to restore

    Hardware problem ?
