    i have looked everywhere for a cure for this problem but cannot find it anywhere!

    when i jailbreak my apple tv the flashing light stays on, i kept the usb plugged in for just over 10 minutes and i thought the light would have stopped flashing after i unplugged the usb and put in the hdmi.

    but nope, 2 hours later still flashing and i cannot get anything on my screen until it stops!

    someone said recboot but i dont know how i would be able to put that on the apple tv to run it!

    heeeeeelp!

    Has the power cable been connected the entire time? If so, unplug that and then hook it up normally. That's how to "reboot" it.

    Was it a "tethered" jailbreak that you used? If it was untethered, it will stay after reboot.

    RC6 and above is untethered. It's safe to unplug.

    If I remember right, there is no visual indication of the jailbreak. Are you able to SSH into the unit?

    Do you have a Mac? If so, open Terminal and type ssh root@ipaddressofATV

    Type yes when it asks you to approve the unknown key. If it takes you to the command prompt, you're all set to do NitoTV or XBMC via their command line instructions.

    If you have Windows, download Putty and then do the steps above with that.
