    I plan on jailbreaking my ATV2 tonight. I'm currently on version 4.3 (4.2.1 in ATV2). I wanted to find out which jailbreak tool to use, Seas0nPass or PwnageTool? Is there a major difference between the two? Apparently both are untethered. I'm doing it for XBMC. Any advice would be great. Thanks.

    Both are unthethered now but Pwnage breaks the audio for XMBC so don't use that (unless they have fixed it in the last day). I am planning on re-jailbreaking with Seas0nPass this weekend since I made the mistake of using Pwnage.

    So if I jailbreak with SeasonPass, will I be able to use XBMC without any major problems?

    Also, is there a way to copy my XBMC library from my laptop (has all the custom artwork and thumbs I added) over to my ATV2's XBMC?

    I would check out this thread over at xbmc.org:

    Sounds like people are having problems with 4.3.1. I am going to downgrade to 4.2 - I think.

    The last time I upgraded, I went from an old AppleTV to the new one and I exported my library (in Settings - somewhere). That created thumbs & nfo files which the new version picked up during "scan for new content". But I did have to recreate all of my custom settings etc in XBMC. This time I backed up the "preferences" directory which in theory (as I understand it) would allow me to bypass that step. I say "in theory" because I had problems with (of my own creation- by way of an add-on) that I don't want to carry forward.

    I am back running on 4.2.1, jailbroken w/ XBMC installed & happy. Ended up using GreenP0ison - forgot that Seas0nPass won't work for me since I only have Leopard on my Mac. I didn't really need the any of the extras that 4.3 brought so I am happy to wait until the issues with XBMC running on 4.3 are worked out.
