Cannot restore the apple tv 1

I’ve tried the tool made by sam N as well as the open elec restore tool, the file loads ok, brings me to the apple screen where I can chose between restore, restart and diagnose. But when I restore, it just keeps looping back to the restore, restart and diagnose screen.


Try this tool. Works for me.

Simply follow the installation instructions again and choose «Restore original OS» in terminal. Don’t forget to connect lan (wifi won’t work while installing the firmware on atv)
