    @gabrielmoreno, I own all the above devices & I must say you're completely wrong. I have a PS3 w/ a 320GB HDD upgrade & also stream from my iMac to it. The PS3 can't receive streams from a plex server so I have to use playback. It doesn't play half the $h!t the atV2 plays from PLEX. ATV2 w/ plex is perfect for a home theater. The only thing it's missing is Bluetooth support for a mouse & keyboard. Go do your homework before trolling!

    Well, got it re-jailbroke with the GP one. Looks good. Installed XBMC. Not really liking it as much as Plex, though. I can't seem to remember or figure out how to go in and add another directory to look at on it to make it look in the iTunes folder on my mini. It is real easy to do with Plex though. I will keep it on there though (Mainly cause I don't know how to remove it. Probably pretty easy once I look for it.) and see what I come up with.

    NitoTV > Install Software > highlight XMBC-ATV2 > Left button > Delete

    all off the top of my head. something like that though.

    i use a nokia mini usb lead, type: CA-101 FROM ANY PHONE SHOP OR EBAY ECT,

    Supprised that there has been no reference to the fact it runs from a networked hd ? So you dont need to run your mac or pc all the time.

    This was the main reason i got it, and it works perfectly,

    ps, love geo's vid to sony .

    Did not lose wifi after GP jailbreak and had nitoTV installed.But to get any ext.'s for nito to work/show-up I had to reboot(under settings nito),that killed my wifi.So then I went to update nitoTV and that re-connected my wifi,and it installed my ext including custom settings.So now I have custom weather and slideshow backgrounds on mainscreen which is pretty cool.

    ATV Flash Black FTW!

    I have been messing around with GP for a couple days now. I had to jailbreak mine without using the power cord. GP crashed during jailbreak if I had the power connected. Worked fine without it. To enter DFU mode, hold MENU + Down Button for 7 secs and then let go for split second and switch to MENU + play/pause for about 5 seconds. Then start GP, after it finished I waited about a minute then clicked the complete button. When I hooked it up to the plasma it worked!
    I sure miss Pwnage Tool.

    How do you get XBMC? Is it included in the download or do you use plex to get it?

    Also, with XBMC can you stream directly from a wifi external without the need for a computer?

    Sorry so many questions! I have never messed with my ATV2.

    Default Could someone please tell me what xbmc is?
    I want to JB my ATV, but don't know what is out there for it. I am hearing about XBMC, NITOTV, and PLEX, but could someone please explain what each one of these is, what they do, and why I want them/would use them on my ATV. Any info would be much appreciated.

    XBMC - An alternate/additional media center interface. It runs on many different platforms, and finally, iOS, the operating system that powers the second generation AppleTV. XBMC, most importantly, unlocks the capability to connect to network hard drives and stream basically any video file format to your AppleTV. Additionally, it allows you to install and use other plugins and programs supported by XBMC.

    NitoTV - The software that lets you install and manage all of these customizations. Think really basic "Cydia" for AppleTV for now. It also puts RSS feeds and Weather in your menu.

    Plex - Allows you to stream media from your Mac with the Plex media server software installed on your computer. It serves up whatever folders you tell it to watch right to your AppleTV. I'm not sure if it currently supports non-Apple formats outside of the typical Quicktime formats or not because I haven't used it.

    Here's how I did it--
    Disconnect everything from the AppleTV.
    Open GP and tell it "Yes"
    Connect AppleTV to your computer by USB
    Press and hold Menu + "Down arrow" and count to 7
    Let go of the remote for a split second and then immediately press and hold Menu + Play/Pause
    Count to 5
    Then press Jailbreak.

    See if that helps.

    Firecore does offer software but the XBMC included with Nito is all you need. Get the fastpass tv plug in and you can watch 100's of current movies. Easier then torrent/download/convert. These are AVI's it's playing back.
    FYI DO A CLEAN INSTALL...RESTORE...before you use GP6. There is a Nito fix (plug in) the WiFi. when it wakes up. It does work for me.

    Do a restore first!
    Good luck
