I have a JB’d ATV2 running 5.0.2. I recently updated XBMC to Frodo, and also updated my ATV flash black so I could get Infuse over Media Player. Since then, and over the last few months, I’ve had some weirdness. Such as:
not all posters appearing for Infuse - typically new files I’ve added just show up as a big ticket icon… this has never happened before. Reloading metadata does nothing.
XMBC has crashed a few times, the icon has vanished and reappeared, I can’t install repositories, and some of my installed add-ons have gone flaky
When I try to remove items using Maintenance, I can’t (such as couch surfer, last fm, etc). It says ‘removal failed’ after a few seconds, then if I try again, same result. Nothing appears on the log window.
My movie drive vanished off my Infuse, and when I went to re-add it, I had to use a different format (originally was AFP, but then I had to add it as SMB the second time to get it working)
- When I go into the manage backups section, I tried to backup settings… failed. I checked the ‘backup firmware’ and have a few listed items here, going up to 5.1 (currently I’m on 5.0.2)
Which brings me to this: I was thinking if 5.1 is listed, maybe i should just use RedSnow and upgrade to this saved signature… My preference would be to update to the latest a version of the ATV2 software (I believe it’s 6.1?) and start anew, assuming there is a jailbreak for it… but I don’t think there is yet.
Any suggestions on what my plan of attack should be?
