I tried this for ages until this worked first time - 1. Open theGreenpois0n app 2. Follow the easier instructions to boot into DFU mode here: https://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=12379 3. Click Jailbreak Done.

Can someone tell me what step 8 is? There are tons of things to do with a jailbroken iPhone or iPod, but what do you do with a jailbroken Apple TV 2G?

I know that is possible to install other media center softwares on Apple TV, but I have no information on how well they work and if there are flaws. As you I have one and am not sure if it is worth to JB mine. If is possible to play AVI/ DIVX on Apple TV would, specially with subtitles, would be worth the try for me.

I had the same problem. Try this.... complete the jailbrake successfully by NOT plugging in to AC power, just connecting by USB. This worked for me! Cheers!

Hi! Is this something I can apply on top a tethered jailbreak I´ve done with Seas0nPass earlier (also 4.2.1)? Or do I have to reinstall a fresh 4.2.1 with iTunes, and then use Greenpois0n?
