I have tried 100 times to get the device to enter DFU mode without luck.
The Jailbreaking with Seas0nPass guide isn't perfectly clear about how to get the device in DFU mode. I mean it doesn't say anything about having to plug in the power cord to the device, perhaps it's not necessary to ever plug in the power chord to the device?
Some other guides say it's necessary.
I hold down the Play/Pause & Menu buttons at the appropriate time for 10+ seconds but it doesn't enter DFU mode.
Apple TV software version is 6.1
The software downloads the appropriate software, patches it, saves it, and gets ready to load it to the device, then shows the screen saying it's waiting for me to hold down the keys and put the device into DFU mode.
One question. I lost my original Apple TV remote. I programmed my TV remote to learn the controls. I'm using that remote to try to put the device in DFU mode. Does the original Apple TV send out a different code when both keys are pressed (Menu + play/pause) and my TV remote doesn't perhaps?
