Cant jailbreak, Itunes restores


When I jailbreak i must connect my atv2 to my PC. Itunes opens and after a while everything looks oke. I connect ATV2 to my TV and the light on the ATV2 starts flashing rapidly and on the tv sceen a picture appears that states that i must connet my ATV2 on my PC. Then Itunes recovers or something and puts back the old, not jailbreak/software but the official software back.

Can anybody help? Many thx in advance
