    Hi guys I need abit of advice, when I try to SSH into my jailbroken apple tv using terminal i get this message....

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
    @ WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED! @
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
    IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOMEONE IS DOING SOMETHING NASTY!
    Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
    It is also possible that the RSA host key has just been changed.
    The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the remote host is
    96:26:6b:28:df:75:33:66:cd:d7:56:7e:08:70:25:e8.
    Please contact your system administrator.
    Add correct host key in /Users/frankydan100/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
    Offending key in /Users/frankydan100/.ssh/known_hosts:1
    RSA host key for ***.***.*.** has changed and you have requested strict checking

    No idea what to do or resolve this, im not very good with teminal. Any detailed help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    The Fix....

    In case anyone wanted to know what fixes this (since the OP didn't post his solution), you edit the known_hosts file in your .ssh folder to remove the line for the ATV2.

    This does assume, of course, that you know you haven't been compromised and that's the reason for the bad signature... :) But the ATV2 jailbreaking would probably explain the key changing.
