    Default No remote.... what's next?

    Well, had an ATV 2, the remote stopped working for some reasons.

    Could control the ATV using the Remote app on the iPhone, all good so far.

    Then I felt like jailbreaking it and load xbmc on it.

    Putting the ATV in DFU mode was not a straight forward process without a remote. That and the fact that there's no way I could have the HDMI cable plugged in and have the micro-USB cable connected at the same time. Who came up with that connector placement? moron...

    I used Seas0nPass to download iOS 5.0.2, and create the patched firmware. Then I used RedSn0w to create a IPFW that would put the ATV in DFU mode and flashed it using iTunes.
    From that point, Seas0nPass could start reflashing the ATV with the jailbroken ipfw.

    What now? I'm stuck on a screen asking me what language I want to set the ATV. Without a working remote, it's not very promising.
    I have access to the SSH shell, and followed the instructions to install the XBMC app.

    I was thinking that maybe there is a way to manually start the remote learning screen from the command line ?
    That way at least I would have a remote working and will be able to complete the setup screen.

    Thanks in advance.

    Default

    Got another way around...

    I enabled BT keyboard and could pass the configuration screen:

    log to the ATV via ssh:

    apt-get install ch.ringwald.keyboard-atv
    apt-get install org.tomcool.btstack-ui
    killall AppleTV

    run: keyboard-config

    It will show something like:
    Starting BTstack
    BTstack working
    Performing inquiry....
    Keyboard: 44:2a:60:ec:8b:e2

    then re-run keyboard-config with the BT MAC address found above:
    keyboard-config 44:2a:60:ec:8b:e2
    Pairing: Enter '0000'
    keyboardd packet: type 2, size 8: 01

    When you see Enter '0000' in the shell, type 0000 on your keyboard.

    That's it it's paired.

    You can now use the BT keyboard direction key to navigate in the ATV
