Success! I couldn't get it into DFU mode this morning, so I thought about what I had changed and the only thing I changed was that I completely unplugged the AppleTV from AC power. This time around I had to power the AppleTV with AC and plug in the USB, run iREB and get exploit loaded, then immediately unplug AC power (leaving USB plugged in), this left iTunes with the option to restore. I LEFT SHIFT - RESTORE and loaded the new IPSW.
Next I just need to get tetherboot to work!
SSH Issues - willise - 2011-01-28 16:06
For some reason, I cannot ssh into the ATV anymore with my iMac.
I enter the following into terminal:
and I get an error:
-bash: email@example.com: command not found
That is the correct IP of the ATV2. I used it two days ago to jailbreak and load XBMC.
Please disregard - I see the error now

OK got tetheredboot to work, ssh'd into the appletv and installed XBMC. It seems to work, and I get the XBMC icon in my menu and it loads, however, when I installed XBMC I got this error in my putty session. Should I be concerned?:

Your command looks fine. Just make sure you're not putting in the $ before the ssh command:

$ is just a prompt

OK, so I get this to work the first time by using the procedure spelled out here. I had to run the following commands to get mine to load since it said a file was missing:
Once I get it all working, I can use XBMC like I should. I then unplug the power to be sure I can get back in incase my power goes out (it does it alot). And I do the DFU mode, tetheredboot (from PC) and it works fine, then I unplug microusb and plug in HDMI and I am sitting at a black screen. White light on the front is steady on. I have no SSH and pushing any button on the remote has no effect.
If I try and boot the box up normally without the tethered boot, it is still a black screen with a white blinking light on the device itself. What have I done wrong? I do get an error on one of the final steps of the xbmc install which is in a post a few above this one.

The timing is important. After the tethered boot process is completed, you want to plug in the HDMI cable before the ATV2 finish booting. By the time the white light becomes solid, it's too late to plug in the HDMI cable is what I understand.
Without the tethered boot, the ATV2 can not complete the boot process and all you see is a blank screen with blinking light. This is a good thing, as it suggest that you jailbroke the device properly. Simply try the tethered boot process again and make sure to plug in the HDMI cable shortly after the tethered boot process is completed.
I also find that waiting till the GUI is up before plugging in the network cable may possibly prevent the dreaded "no network" connection some users have reported to having. This is not conclusive without verified testing, but something to keep in mind.

You running tetheredboot in a bat file or from the command prompt?
I do not believe this is true... I have plugged in hdmi a couple minutes after i tetherbooted and it still worked...
The main problem is some people running tetheredboot in a bat file, which wont error or prompt if it fails, it just closes the cmd prompt and seems like it worked...

Hoping someone can give me a little help, I've gotten all the way to using putty and logging in as root but I cant get XBMC to install.
putty 192.168.1.201 username root, pw alpine that all works.
I then pasted the code from wiki, not including the $. The first command takes, the second throws the error.
Apple-TV:~ root# echo "deb http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/atv2 ./" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbmc.list
Apple-TV:~ root# apt-get update
E: Type '.deb' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list
I've tried using ssh on my vmware mac install but am getting the same results. any suggestions?
echo "deb http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/atv2 ./" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbmc.list

marksch - make sure you replace the characer directly before the deb and after the ./ with a real " mark. A copy and paste doesn't always work because of the font of your browser
