I have noticed that, from time to time, if the ATV2 has been unplugged that the red FC logo and XBMC is not there making me think that the jailbreak had been lost.
So I re-jailbroke the unit and it became clear that the FC setting icon does not always appear (even without XBMC installed).
I am therefore assuming that this glitch is nothing to do with XBMC or any subsequent programming.
I had a few nightmares using aTVFlash (Sorry guys!) so I opted instead for manual XBMC install using XBMChub instructions and everything was fine (apart from this intermittent red FC logo and XBMC vanishing).
I have some SSH’ing problems which I put down to updates using NitoTV (and couldn’t see the benefit of using NitoTV) so I stopped installing NitoTV and unit runs fine.
Sometimes I get buffering in Hulu now and again.
I have been playing with several permutations for a few months now and am reasonably happy with my setup for the ATV2 - however, there is always room for improvement!!!
I have a few questions:-
a) I am missing something fundamental by not installing NitoTV and simply changing the root password from ‘alpine’
b) Would I be better off installing NitoTV by SSH and entering code
c) How can I correct this logo disappearing and XBMC along with it? It seems like it is booting without realising it has been jailbroken every now and then.
Thanks in anticipation.
