Surely i’m not the first bone head to do this, but I have forgotten the root password to my ATV. Does anyone have any suggestions to restore an Apple TV including the root password? I must have changed it from “alpine” at some point, so now i’m super screwed. The only option that I haven’t explored is removing the hard drive and trying to restore from a downloaded factory image. Of course I really don’t want to do that, but I think that’s going to be my only option.
You would think a factory restore would do this, but it does not. Please help!
I simply got confused after working on many atv2’s that I had it in my head about needing root on atv1. This is no longer and issue
