Having a few issues at the moment with my ATV (1st GEN)

Is it safe to do the restore and run ATV flash over it again.

or will the restore pull the latest version from Apple and basically make it a brick?

NitoTV just stopped talking to my smb drives just says they are empty after an smart update from Maintenance. unless anyone else has an idea to fix the smb issue

If you have the latest, 3.0.2 which is probably the last update that'll happen for the 1st gen, then that won't be an issue for you at least. Otherwise I can't assist.

did this one month ago with atv v1  works fine
