That doesn’t help me. I know how to log out. It is logged out. But it keeps my username listed there when you go to the iTunes sign-in screen. I don’t want my information in there. I want to remove all personalized information from the Apple TV without restoring.
I’m sure there is a way to do this from command-line. If someone knows how to purge this from memory or delete the file(s) where this information is contained, please let me know so I can just SSH in and be done with it.
MightyJew: Reset doesn’t clear the username from the iTunes login. It doesn’t work on either of my ATV2s (posted previously). Both devices otherwise function flawlessly and I don’t want to hassle with digging up old ATV images or make backups or re-jailbreak or anything. They work great on the firmware releases they’re currently on.
I just want to quickly purge the information manually via SSH and it is apparent that nobody knows where this information is stored on the little device.
I reset iTunes account on mine to test and it deleted the login information. Just click on the reset apple TV not restore. It will reboot and clear all native apple settings and cache without affecting jailbreak
I understand the simple reset function works for you, and probably others.
IT DOES NOT WORK ON MINE (on either of them)
It reboots itself, hangs on a black screen, and I eventually have to pull the power cord for a hard reset, after which it still has my info in there.
That’s why I’m asking where to clear the cached / saved information manually.
While this user was actually trying to achieve something different, they did experience the exact same behavior with the “reset” function (also with two different ATV’s no less), so at least the anomaly isn’t limited to my devices:
