    Is Saurik happy with AppleTV move? Guess I mean with all he has going on did he have to tweak somethings to get it moving or is Comex helping him. May have the wrong person as his dev partner. (can't think of the person names for the life of me.)

    any idea when we can expect support for more codecs? once that becomes available to jailbroken apple tvs, i'll go buy one.

    Where can I get a good mini USB to jailbreak mine ?

  12. #12
    Any store has them. I got mine at Wal-Mart. (Only because it was the only store open at 1 am; which was when I got out of work after picking up my pacakge at FedEx before work.) But just make sure you get the micro and not the mini.

    Micro*, not mini. Dang USB standards are complicated.



    I got mine on eBay for $2.87 with free shipping.

    On windows you would need redsnow to put it in dfu first. I know the latest redsnow can do this for the other devices. Not sure if it works on apple tv as well.

    So what following the guide from iclarified using iTunes won't put it into dfu mode?

    It has to be done with the special dfu that pwnage tool and redsn0w do so that it will accept a custom firmware. Otherwise you will get an error when trying to restore.

    I'm waiting for things to develop before I buy an Apple TV.

    I want one.. but at the same time it's not as exciting of a machine unless jailbroken.
