    So here's the thing...

    I jailbroke my ATV 2 (4.4.4...I guess), installed XBMC ..It was fine for a couple of months and then suddenly both Hulu and Icefilms stopped working..

    I tried to reinstall XBMC and reconfigured everything, but no use.. so I left it that way !

    As if that was contagious, Netflix stopped working after few days...

    I had no other go but restore it ! Now I'm with the latest Apple TV firmware, which can't be jailbroken yet !

    So now, I wanna downgrade it to the previous version and try jailbreaking again from scratch, to see if I can get the XBMC addons working..

    I've read few posts on downgrading and nothing was clear to me..

    Can anyone help me out here? Totally Appreciate it !

    Google for the old firmware then download and use your micro USB with no power and hold down menu and play/pause till the light starts blinking which you probably did already? Then click restore while holding its either shift, command, or option, or cntrl or something on windows and it pops up and you can choose firmware but if it doesn't restore to the earlier version apple probably isn't signing it anymore.
