No jailbreak but there "Plex Connect", a novel intelligent method to access all of our digital content on an ATV without jailbreak. Something iClarified never bothered to inform

Can't seem to be able to SSH into it after this. Keep getting this... @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ @ WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED! @ @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOMEONE IS DOING SOMETHING NASTY! Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)! It is also possible that the RSA host key has just been changed. The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the remote host is 35:dc:60:d1:a1:29:a7:de:43:93:79:b3:34:68:f4:b7. Please contact your system administrator. Add correct host key in /Users/mrslav/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message. Offending key in /Users/mrslav/.ssh/known_hosts:1 RSA host key for 192.168.1.109 has changed and you have requested strict checking. Host key verification failed.
