Micro-USB, 4 pin vs 8 pin
Notcom mention on twitter that jailbreaking the ATV requires a 4 pin microUSB, not an 8 pin. I haven't been able to find much info on the difference.
I used a blackberry microUSB to back up my SHSH, and it appeared to allow a restore using this cable as well (in iTunes). Physically counting the pins in the plug shows 5. Could anyone shed some light on this?

If a restore works then the cable is compatible.. You're fine,

Thanks, that's what I was hoping for, but could anyone explain the difference between 8 pin and 4 pin? Is there a separate microUSB standard with 8 pins and a different plug, or the same plug with an 8 pin configuration?
