    Just tried to do mine, and iTunes got stuck on the restore. Threw back the lovely Error 1602. Trying the restore on a different Mac now. :mad:

    Just jb mine. I was expecting something different but I guess its not time for that yet! Nothing on the screen to indicate its jb. I had to open up terminal and ssh into it, just to know I was jailbroke. Unless I did something wrong, thats it for now!

    Yeah, got into DFU mode successfully, but on both machines iTunes verifies and restores the new firmware several times in a loop, then tells me it was unsuccessful with the error code 1602. I'm no stranger to jailbreaking, so this was a surprise to me, especially on a device that had never been cracked before.

    I saved my shsh blobs the other day, so now I'm trying to use Tiny Umbrella to help me restore to the original, non-custom 4.1 firmware. If that doesn't work, I'm taking a sledge hammer to the thing. It's been a while since I've had a good old fashioned meltdown on a gadget.

    According to Erica Sadun, 1602 is actually a successful jailbreak. Should be bale to disconnect it and boot it up via the powercord and it should be jailbroken. You can test via ssh via terminal. Let us know.

    I got Error 1602, 1601, and 21 when restoring to the custom firmware. I also restored to the custom firmware a several times with iTunes reporting everything was successful. Each time, I'd turn the device on and no evidence of jailbreaking was evident in the onscreen menus. After a while I simply tried to ssh into it, and, "ssh root@apple-tv.local" with password "alpine" worked. I think I may have been confusing myself thinking I'd see the greenpois0n logo in the :apple:TV menu. Apparently that's not the case. So even if you're getting error messages, hook the :apple:TV back up to your tv and give ssh a whirl. If it works, you're good -- just wait until some apps start appearing.

    ugh ive been installing ATV 2G firmware all night trying to get this jailbreak to work.

    I can build the custom IPSW, get it to go DFU, get it to restore with no error.. but when i plug the damn thing in and try to SSH, it doesn't connect. After awhile it will output:
    ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

    Already running bind (DNS), lighttpd (HTTP), php, subversion, irssi and then some. A tiny low powered webserver... that also entertains!

    Actually used the ATV in the office today to serve up a small test-site for debugging. Worked well!

    Also passed a security scan fairly well, the lighttpd version could be a little more current- but I'm having trouble getting a working C compiler set up *on* the device.
