[AppleTV2] Disable Auto Updates - bnazza - 2011-02-08 20:14
Total newbie here.
Bought the ATV2 (4.2.1) yesterday
Backed up the SHSH blobs with Tiny Umbrella
Jailbroke using seas0npass
Everything works. Hurrah and Huzzah
Now. How do I prevent the ATV2 from auto updating next week when Apple releases 4.3?
I realise thats an Apple question as opposed to an XBMC question but I thought maybe there is a setting in XBMC somewhere that would allow me to do it, or perhaps an add on to install?
Thanks for any help....

add below code to the end of the file and reboot
- bnazza - 2011-02-08 21:16
just to make sure I understand correctly..
to run the update I can use Terminal to get to the root of the ATV and run that command.
how then do I add the lines to the hosts file?
and when you say reboot, I'm assuming the tethered reboot with seas0npass?

just run terminal, ssh into the atv2.
run "apt-get install nano" to install nano, text editor
then run "nano /etc/hosts" to open hosts file
c/p the 4 lines to the end of hosts file
hit ctrl + x and answer "y" to save the file
reboot, tethered as there is no other way

Perfect, thanks Amet, you the man

Ran into an issue with this Amet, it seems that it prevents the ATV from accessing the web at all, so the menus don't load for ATV Movies etc. and it can't connect to youtube or netflix etc.
Do all 4 urls have to be repointed?

Thanks Amet, left the other three lines in and the interface is working properly now.
Fingers crossed they can't force 4.3 on me now.

Cheers mate, they can't do much harm, you have shsh saved

hi i found this thread through another thread:

and this was the only reply:
Eric_S Wrote:See Amet's post in below link for a solution. You can also go NitoTV/Settings, and choose the option to update NitoTV. Then go NitoTV/Install software, and choose the option (you'll see it up top) that stops the Apple TV from prompting you to update (this is the cause of the crashes).
so this is how i got here (sorry in advance if i'm in the wrong place
but i'm in the same place as this guy: installed icefilms now my netflix bucks me back to the main atv screen after 10mins of play time
i tried this fix, but it's still kicking me back: is this the correct fix for this?
