I was using aTV Flash (black) without incident until recently. Shortly after XBMC became available, I installed it via the aTV Flash menu on my aTV. I didn't see an XBMC option show up on the main screen after installation, so I thought I probably needed to restart.
I didn't know how to restart, so I held down the menu and play/pause buttons for seven seconds. The aTV restarted, but nothing came on the screen. I tried unplugging it, and after I plugged it back in, it would just sit on the Apple logo screen.
I figured that I'd messed something up, so I thought I should try jailbreaking it again. I tried running Seas0nPass, but it failed repeatedly (during the part where it tries to restore the device via iTunes).
Since that didn't work, I decided to restore to the factory OS and settings via iTunes, but, unfortunately, that doesn't work either. The restore looks like it's going to work, but then it fails with error 1601. Also, the only way I can get it to show up in iTunes is by putting it in DFU mode (menu + play/pause for 7 seconds).
Does anyone how I can get my aTV back to a functional state (factory or aTV Flash)?
Assistance is much appreciated!
