I find it extremely frustrating that one can’t find a straight answer about the process of jailbreaking an ATV2. Specifically, there’s no resource I’ve found to tell me what to do with my box that still has OS 4.1.1 (4.1.2) on it. Should I upgrade and then jailbreak? Is it fine to leave it the way it is? Which untethered jailbreak is best? Or does it matter?
I haven’t used my ATV in over a year and now, after the announcement of a new, upgraded version, it’s pretty much “bricked” and worthless for resale. I run a total Ubuntu Linux environment at home with a home-built FreeNAS as a media server, and was planning on getting another WD Live, but now I might as well convert my ATV2 to an XBMC box. But where to start?
Can anyone provide some helpful advice? Be much appreciated.
