    Yes, it is. You will need a micro usb cord to do it though.

    Ya, not sure myself. I know you can definitely do it from a Mac.

    I'm pretty certain you need to do a restore from the computer. Back in the early fall when I got my first ATV2, I played around with this, and there was only an option to Update. Even if you put it into DFU mode, it just gave a message to connect to iTunes. Maybe that's changed, but I don't think so.
