I’ve never jailbroken an Apple device. I’m getting an Apple TV 3 next week and I plan on buying ATV flash once it works on the new apple TVs!
So I have an impossibly long WPA2 password with special characters etc. entering this on an iDevice is already hell. I assume without a keyboard it will be worse on the apple tv. I would like to use the new ATV before I can jailbreak it (whenever that is available) but I assume that all settings will be deleted and will have to be reentered.
Yes - a jailbreak effectively wipes everything on the system and comes up in an ‘as new’ state as far as settings are concerned.
Regarding the ATV3 - I am not sure what the timescale will be for a jailbreak. Since the ATV3 has new hardware such as the A5X processor it is almost certain to be after a JB is available for the ATV2 with 5.0 firmware. I am hoping that the work done on A5 processor based systems such as the iPhone 4S will help shorten the timescale as will also want to JB an ATV3.
Sounds like a larger project. is it difficult, nay, impossible for a rough timeframe? I understand if they don’t because then people cry bloody murder if it takes longer.
How long did it take for the ATV2? I know that I won’t be able to resist and will have to reenter the password. But if that is my only problem, then I’m doing pretty well
my main reason is to watch some movies stored on my NAS. Used to have a WDTV live which just died so decided to go the Apple route since all my other gear already is from the Apple universe
