Please help, I'm a total idiot who doesn't know how to do this.

Hey guys I’m having a huge trouble with jailbreaking my apple tv g2.

 

:frowning: sorry the device isn’t compatible. I keep getting this error. When trying to connect to my apple tv via usb cable without the power cord it doesn’t respond and doesn’t even switch on. I’ve tried down + menu button trick, but even that didn’t work. 

 

Please help?  

This normally means that you have an ATV3 rather than an ATV2 (see my sig for the difference).   Any ATV bought from Apple in the last 6 months is almost certain to be an ATV3.
