    Well, that didn't take long.

    @MuscleNerd reported last night that he was able to use SHAtter to make the new Apple TV restore a pre-jailbroken IPSW. This video, released on the Dev-Team Blog, shows @MuscleNerd using ssh to access the Apple TV, running commands as root. According to @p0sixninja, it only took @MuscleNerd 30 minutes to do it.

    The "not ready for prime time" jailbreak just shows what's possible, as there's no way to load and run apps on the Apple TV… yet. However, @StealthBravo has confirmed that you can mount the Apple TV in iTunes using a microUSB cable, and TinyUmbrella has already been updated to allow users to save Apple TV SHSH blobs. Late last night, @StealthBravo found DFU mode: plug in a microUSB cable (no power cord), hold the Menu and Down buttons for 6 seconds to reboot and then immediately hold Menu and Play buttons. The team is working with devs from the original Apple TV, and it looks like @nitoTV has a list of most if not all of the headers.

    Things are about to get interesting. Make sure you pick up a microUSB cable when you get your Apple TV!

      I don't mean to pee all over this, but aside from a few people here does anyone really care about the Apple TV?

      I know I don't.

      Jeez calm down they're making it. It's taking long because as always they want to iron out any bugs and make it user freindly, I respect them for that and so should you. I havnt had the chance to jb my i4 yet, but I don't complain, just sit tight

      Well, I care tons. Picked one up and think its pretty great. Once it can play avi's and mkv's this will be perfect!

      Hope they are able to add something like boxee/xbmc/plex/vlc to it.

      Fair enough. Aside from sports and news I quit watching TV during college and never started back up.

      a great way to support the devs is to praise them for all they have acomplished, and not complain about them not doing something as fast as you want them to when you have no clue how to even begin doing what they are. Please quit whining and just be glad they are working on it.

      Nice, but I don't give a damn either. Streaming TV? No thanks. It's the could care less about device of 2010. Didn't care about the other apple tv either.

      My dream for Apple TV would be getting it to work on a Hackintosh netbook.

      LMAO! either way, you can't used the cracked or paid version until the jailbreak is released. Idiot. How about downgrading back to 4.01. And if you can't, sorry your the unfortunate one that either purchased your device so late after release, or upgraded your device like a dummy knowing you can't jailbreak 4.1. Is either of the two the Dev's fault?

      Some people care about Apple TV, some don't. Everyone has their own opinion. Personally, I like the streaming aspect of it more for music because of the sound system hooked to my TV. Play my iTunes through my Bose set up, luvly. I don't have an option at this point to stream music from my pc to my tv so this will work nice.

      Complaining that there is no jailbreak for the i4 yet, seriously?? Why don't they rush the jailbreak out, not notice a bug or three, your phone ends up bricking and then watch the complaints that come out.

      "Why'd they release this if it wasn't perfect?" "They should have waited and worked on it longer......"

      I picked one up last night, @ $99 why not? I must say it mad TV kinda fun again, and Netflix look amazing on it, better then my PS3 by far. Now that it's jailbroke it will be awesome. IMO...
