    Default Atv stuck on language screen

    Hi Guys,

    1st of all sorry to bring up my problem here however I looked everywhere on the net to solve my issue with no luck.

    I upgraded my Atv to the new update 3.0.2 hacked on to my Atv with atv usb creator everything went well.

    After that I realized that the software menu does not work properly along with boxee and xbmc so I decided to roll back to the 2.4 but as a dumb I decided to do it thru ssh on the terminal once completed my apple remote stopped working, I tried to pair it and unpair it with no luck, the remote responds but can not navigate thru the menu, tried to patch it again however now I am stuck with the language screen with no way to scroll down or to choose the right language.

    I have the recovery dmg in my Mac but upon reading different websites I am lost and don't know exactly how to do it, I tried the method of mounting my own patchstick with the OS.dmg, the combo update and apple tiger I am able to follow all the steps in the terminal but once I plug the usb key to the Atv it's still stuck.

    If someone can point me on how to use the recovery.dmg ( I don't have an external drive right now if I can do it with the usb key that will be perfect).

    Please note that I am unable to ssh to the Atv all I get is connection refused port 22.

    Thanks a lot

    I think this is because you did not load the IR downgrade, there are normally four components to an update, IR, HDMI, EFI and the actual OS update. If you downgrade, you generally should downgrade all four components otherwise you can experience these kind of problems.

    You are best of trying to force the ATV into recovery mode and then restoring it to factory defaults, that might work.

    Or you could keep on down your current path with patchstick and once you get SSH enabled.. Login and use OSupdate - AwkwardTV to properly downgrade (including the IR firmware)

    I recall seeing a similar thread (here or on awkwardtv forums) - can't seem to find it via a cursory search. @davilla or @gbooker please speak up if my advice is wrong.
    Please read the stickies & search forum before posting!

    You don't have to downgrade the firmware to run the an older factory version. The IR controller is smart and must get a message to switch to the advanced IR handled that came in under 3.x.

    Most likely it's a IR paring issue. That seems to pop up when flicking the OS version back and forth.
