I have a JB’d ATV2 running Nito and XBMC. The version of iOS that the ATV is running is at least 2 versions old now. I only really use XBMC so I haven’t felt any urge to update the OS but what with ever increasing Airplay functionality coming ATV’s way I’d like to update at some point.
However I’m guessing that in order to get the latest jailbreakable version of iOS on my ATV I will need to completely wipe the device, restore it to an official Apple build (without a jailbreak, Nito, XBMC), then jailbreak it all over again, then reinstall Nito and XBMC? Is that correct, or is there a way to update a JB’d ATV that won’t wipe everything?
Entering all the setup details for XBMC using the hateful ‘keyboard’ input method is enough to put me off updating, let alone the hassles involved in smoothly restoring to Apple’s build and jailbreaking, but I guess I’ll have to at some point, probably when ‘iOS5’ (or will it be iOS 4.9 for ATV? ) comes out.
