FYI It turned out that I had to use the first USB port as well in order for Itunes to find the Apple tv 2 at once in the process. Somthing went wrong everytime before so itunes didnt find the device straight away (this only in the jailbreak process). Also the devicemanager said it couldnt recognize the device.
But after changing to the first USB together with your solution everything worked out well.
Good luck with spreading your great ideas onto our nice little apple gadgets and making them so much consomer friendly.
Having same problem but on Mac (ireb doesn’t work) using itunes 11 apple tv 2 5.0.2. have tried option restore in iTunes and found the right .ipsw but won’t jailbreak. Is there anyone with same problem on mac running 10.8.2?
well I guess I’m screwed there. finally got it to go through whole script and get a 160… error. I’ve changed usb ports and nothing is different using same micro usb as I did with original jb that worked the first time. basically at a loss as to what to do. is there a seas0npass disclaimer that recognizes this or am I missing something?
