    Did they have the windows version up?

    ah, oh well no sense in hitting refresh every 5 seconds I guess then. Thanks for the info.

    You can download it on the Pirate Bay. Official torrent.

    Now, can anyone give me a little course on how to use it? Never used this tool before to JB; asks to press the Sleep button, then the Home button. So, on the ATV, what would that be?

    not working for me

    I run greenpois0n, and I get the message "complete", but when I try to connect via ssh, I get the error "

    ssh: connect to host 192.168.1.104 port 22: Connection refused

    any clue?..or maybe this release is not working for Apple TV...:(

    Thanks!!!

    Got the same thing. Not sure if this jb is working correctly. There's a lot of people complaining on the iPhone/iPad side.

    I'm just reporting what is being said on the XBMC forums, I don't even have an ATV2 :D, I'm waiting for a reliable Windows jailbreak then I may purchase one just to mess around with XBMC.

    Have you tried it yourself, and did you get it to work?

    NitoSoft has tweeted (after that .mov link) that RC5 was not ready for ATV2, to be patient it would be ready soon - the movie shows that it's possible, but needs a tweak to work.

    Yeah, the readme file for the current version says that rc6 will have ATV2 support.

    I can't wait!

    I tried to install this on top of my seas0n pass, but it didn't work. Failed each time. The greenpois0n even crashed on me several times.

    very easy to jailbreak with this but there seems to be a problem getting wireless working after a reboot - it doesn't see any wireless networks....anyone have any fixes? Ethernet is working fine
