hmmm - I thought the Cydia version would behave like that on the 4.4+ tethered jailbreaks. Still not taking that bet though.

The Cydia build is just an old nightly that was manually made before the buildbot could do iOS. It's not a stable version.

I'm aware of that. Just thought I remembered some changes after the Cydia version that were done to support the new iOS version and without those changes the system would hang. Could be my faulty memory. Either way, the two points of advice will probably fix it - update to latest nightly and blow away database if still not working.

cydia version will crash on ios > 4.2 when using hardware decoder (h.264) ... all in all ... something like that

ssh root@yourappletv ip
pw=alpine


rm -f /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata/Database/*db
