Thread: Apple TV into DFU Mode

  1. #1
    Default Apple TV into DFU Mode
    Anybody can confirm this method to put the Apple TV into DFU mode??

    Step 1: Plug the ATV (apple TV) with MicroUSB.

    Step 2: Hold menu+down for 6 seconds to reboot.

    Step 3: Then immediately hold Menu+Play to go into DFU mode.

    It is correct. StealthBravo says the same method on his twitter too last week.

    Not sure if anyone else has had any issues but I've tried this 20 times and I can't get it to ever say in iTunes that I'm in DFU mode. Newest (10.1) iTunes on mac osx 10.6 (and tried windows 7 with same updated itunes) and it just wont work. Tried it with the power cord plugged in also like some sites say. Held it 6 seconds, held it 106 seconds...made no difference. I can get it to restart, but then iTunes never says it's in DFU mode.

    *It didn't ever say I was in DFU mode in iTunes*
    I finally got it to work just being gutsy I suppose. The steps I used were run pwnagetool again (simple mode) then just clicked DFU I did not create a new JB file. I followed the on screen instructions and it said I was in DFU. I closed pwnage, opened iTunes, left-alt clicked restore and it worked I just SSHed into the apple tv. Just letting people know it did NOT ever tell me I was in DFU mode. I was afraid to continue without that prompt but it worked for me
