I would love some help please!!!!! I'm having problems performing a tethered boot. Everything else is working OK
This is exactly what I'm doing:
- Connect USB
- Click "Boot Tethered"
- Put the ATV into DFU mode by menu+play for 7 secs
- Plug in power
- Disconnect usb and plug in HDMI and then my network cable
I keep getting a "Plug into iTunes" graphic on my TV.....
Am I doing it right? I have probably tried 20 times now and no luck.
Try this order:
Click "Boot Tethered"
Plug in power
Put the ATV into DFU mode by menu+play for 7 secs
wait for the magic to happen
Disconnect usb and plug in HDMI (plug in HDMI cable somewhat quickly)
as a sidenote, I also connected the power during the jailbreak process and it worked...with no power nothing was happening. I just did the jailbreak last night...everything works great. got xbmc running and am streaming from nas. thanks firecore!
I posted my steps for a successful tethered boot here:
It works every time.
I'm afraid I'm having the same problem. The jailbreak process seemed to work perfectly (although it took me nearly 10 atempts to get it to work!). I followed the tethered boot instructions exactly, as well as some of the alternate methods on these threads -- each time, it goes through the process and appears to complete without any errors.
However, each time all I get on the TV is the iTunes logo and USB graphic. Clearly the tethered boot didn't work.
Any suggestions? This is really frustrating. I paid for aTV flash and haven't even been able to use it. I don't want to restore the original software if i don't have to.
Thanks for any help.
