    My brother has just bought an AppleTV2, and he wants to Jailbreak it to run Plex and or XBMC.

    Could someone point me in the direction of the latest documentation of how to do this?

    The links I seem to find are all over 2 years old.

    Cool. My brother has tried with Season Pass but he keeps getting errors when iTunes tries to do the restore (1600, 1601, 1611 etc). Any idea why?

    16xx error are usually due to the device not being on DFU mode, it is a bit tricky to put the Appletv on DFU (sometime the button on the remote slip). Make sure you are on DFU more before restoring.

    How do you get it onto DFU mode? And how do you know it is in DFU mode?
