Very strange!

Everything was fine on Tuesday. On Wednesday, NitoTV, Plex, and XBMC are no longer listed on FrontRow.

It has NOT been updated. It is still on version 4.1.1. I can still SSH into it and it still has the same root password that I set a long time ago.

I tried apt-get remove to uninstall xbmc and then apt-get install to re-install it. All seemed fine, but it is still not showing up on front row. I did the same uninstall/reinstall of NitoTV and got the same result.

Any thoughts? I'm at a bit of a loss. I have my SHSH blobs for 4.1.1, but I don't really know if they are useful in this situation.

downgrade your beigelist and also check the permissions.


Apple-TV:~ root# apt-get install beigelist=1.0-1

Downgrading beigelist will definitely fix it. I had 3 ATV2 die with this problem earlier in the week. Once I found the fix they were all up and running again within 10 minutes.

Bless you with all things good!! I was pulling my hair out trying to figure that out. I think I restored and re-jailbroke about 10 times with slight variations trying to figure it out!

How can I keep beigelist from updating in the future? I think I want to hold it back forever! Smile

Yes I know it is hard not to upgrade Tongue ..... same problem here. I guess you can rename apt-get to some other name like " DONT" so it never updates unless you really have to. Smile

Is beigelist even needed? Can I uninstall it so that it does not try to update it again?

beigelist is part of the jailbreak. Without it you will get into serious trouble...

This command will keep beigelist from updating. I just tested it and apt-get is in fact holding it back. Nod

echo "beigelist hold" | dpkg --set-selections

This will reverse the hold if the bug is fixed:

echo "beigelist install" | dpkg --set-selections

I noticed this isn't an issue anymore for me with the latest version of beigelist. It's working fine and displaying on the main menu again. So you can use that 2nd line posted by BoomSchtick to reverse the hold now and let it update.

I am wondering if the same applies to me too. My situation:

- ATV 5.01 was jailbroken last month, unthethered boot
- Rejailbroke it yesterday for it to boot thethered
- XBMC is now missing from frontrow.

At first I figured the rejailbreak deleted my XBMC and I had to unintall, but reading this thread I am wondering if downgrading beigelist will suffice.

Back Beigelist off and see if it helps:

apt-get install beigelist=1.0-1

If XBMC comes back, then you'll probably want to hold it back semi-permanently:

echo "beigelist hold" | dpkg --set-selections
