If it makes you feel better, I am in the same situation as you guys. Strictly Windows XP and 7 here. I have been programming microcontrollers (Intel and Microchip) all my life and I find only aficionado talk in this forum. Even myself bought the product last week and bought a micro USB cable and I am stuck trying to get a simple jailbreak procedure (or software) for windows. Which makes me wonder if I'd show up at my local Apple store they would let me jailbreak using one of their macs ???
Everyone seem to expect you to know what a theter or untheter is all about and there seems to be a great lot of fun in these extremely confusing versions numbering... How about for the software questioning the ATV box and letting you know that you can go ahead or not...
I think I shoud have waited for Apple to put Safari themselves in the ATV 2g since this is the only thing I dream of. I assume they most likely will do it eventually !
