    Default AppleTV Reboots (Watchdog?!)

    Hi @all.

    I just enabled the SSH option in my Apple TV Box successfully.
    But the Box seems to be rebooting all the time every 5 minutes or so.

    I read in the net about the Ripstop and I moved the ripstop.plist in the /etc/mach_init.disabled folder.

    I added the kextunload option to the /etc/rc.local file.

    But the system is still rebooting!
    What am I doing wrong?

    Help!! want to use my ATV box....

    Jens

    Default

    Hi jensko.
    How did you enable ssh? Using Patchstick?

    Did you install something other than just ssh, because normally, ssh isn't causing the AppleTv to reboot. This only happens if Finder.app is killed or an important bundle is missing.

    Is your AppleTv getting hot? Or better, really really hot.

    Try to restore your Apple Tv by pushing - and the Menu Button while the Apple Tv is on and restore it to Factory Settings. If it is then still rebooting, you have another problem than just ssh.

    Good luck
