    Hi all,

    My :apple: TV is nearly a year old, and seeing how the warranty has now ended, I have been thinking about do a little jail-breaking. Anyhow, these are my questions.

    1. Where can I find a good how-to guide for the new 2.0 (2.2) software?

    2. Is there any easy way to "un-jailbreak it"? Would a restore just work?

    3. Do you have any personal 3rd party apps/plug-ins that you like for the ATV.

    4. Would you just use the patchstick creator that's going round, and is there a way to make a patchstick with a third party app (CouchSurfer for example) and compile it?

    Thanks, Dylan.

    Ad 1: What do you mean with "how-to" ?
    Ad 2: Yes, just do a facory restore
    Ad 3: I just installed Boxee, really like it
    Ad 4: The app did not work. Although I could create a working patchstick with the usual tools, the new app was not able to create a bootable stick with exactly the same stick.
