    Default Help with Greenposi0n rc6 jailbreak, ATV2 4.2.2

    I have tried multiple time to jailbreak my ATV2 with no joy. Currently running the latest version of itunes and windows7 64 bit w/ service pack 1.

    I can get the ATV2 to enter DFU mode with and with out the power connected. Greenposi0n reports the jailbreak is successful.
    I have let the ATV2 sit connected via USB for additional 20+ minutes after Greenposi0n states "jailbreak complete"


    Connect it my tv the following happens
    Normal boot up screen
    Searching for Date and Time
    Standard menu screen

    Am I missing some setting or step that is not allowing the jail break to take?

    Any and all help would be greatly apperciated

    Do you mean ATV 4.2.1? (the version that is reported by the ATV itself). This is also referred to as 4.3.1 (in the actual IPSW name)

    That isn't yet supported by greenpois0n. @nitoTV has it jailbroken, not sure if any updated tools have been published yet.

    Downgrade your ATV2 to 4.2.1 (ISPW name). I also had to perform the Greenpois0n JB several times in order to get it working. No idea why but it finally worked out.

    Now I have aTV Flash installed and everything works like a charm, well, up to now at least.

    This will only work if @Xenologic had previously saved a SHSH for iOS 4.2.1 for their ATV2

    Apple stopped signing iOS 4.2.1 for ATVOS on 11 March 2011, either you downgraded before then or you DO have a saved SHSH

    Neither, I got my ATV2 just three days before.

    I had to restore it several times due to problems with the Greenpois0n JB.

    Or you are confused by the ATV version numbering -I'm referring to the version number in the IPSW, NOt what version is reported by the ATV itself.
