    The devs are saying no.

    As to the appletv vs mac mini debate...$99 is a lot cheaper than the cost of a mac mini and it's a lot more friendly for people who don't want to sit with a trackpad/mouse and keyboard to control their tv. For me, the inconvenience and cost of a mac mini far outweighs the extra few things it would allow me to do that appletv doesn't.

    I have two Apple TV's and love them. For $99 I can watch Netflixs in the bedroom or livingroom, etc. I have a launch model that has been jailbroken and has ATVflash Black on it, and the second is from x-mas so it is on the newer previously non-jailbreakable iOS. I want to try the GP but some have said you lose WiFi and the video up a 2 post shows a power cord being used. I have never had to plug in the power cable to JB my other ATV. Is this a GP thing? The WiFi issue is my biggest issue. SO of those of you that used GP on your ATV, did it work... WiFi and all?

    Default Fix for no wifi after reboot
    I found this in the XBMC forum, and I can confirm it worked for me. You need to know how to connect to your AppleTV via ssh. Note that if wifi is not working, you will need to connect your AppleTV via ethernet:

    SSH in to your AppleTV, then:

    apt-get update

    apt-get remove com.nito.nitotv

    apt-get install com.nito.nitotv

    killall AppleTV

    Right now there's not too much outside of NitoTV and Plex, but there will be a lot of great things coming. I'm not sure if Cydia is out for it yet, but that'll be nice.

    Well, if apple opens the app store, then I'll "jump into the fire"
    a Mac Mini would be a much better media hub but the price difference is a bit much, especially if you just want to stream media content from your current mac

    I have tried this as well. I don't think aTV supports adhoc networks.

    why would you say that? Airplay alone is more than enough of a reason to own one.

    Its a great device and I have several of them.

    Because he is ignorant.

    I have been trying unsuccessfully to jailbreak my ATV2. Either it crashes when it attempts to JB it, it starts then fails, or it will not go into DFU.

    I have had to mess around with past JB methods but this is ridicules.

    Unhappy Crap!! Failed :(
    I am having the same problem on my Mac. either the app crashes or it starts to jailbreak, then the Jailbreaking button turns to Failed

    is there a firmware that is too new for JB? I got my ATV2 around xmas.

    Possible downgrade if this is the case? or shsh will have me screwed to downgrade?.

    I'm about to try the windows version.

    Default Success!
    Ok here's the deal. The JB will not work on a Hackintosh.

    I used windows JB instead. Failed first time. Used GP without power cord attached ( skipped that step ) and just the mini usb, and it worked.

    Guess it's the same rule, iTunes won;t recognize the device with the power cord attached. Hope this helps someone!
