Hi

I've tried to jail break my ATV2 using SeasonPass but got nowhere with that so am now trying the Pwnage way.

I've followed the instructions to the letter and I've got to the plug in by USB stage. I have a constant white flashing light on the ATV but the Pwnage tool is not moving past the 'connect device to USB' screen.

It's been like this for about 20 minutes. What should I do?

Many thanks!

Rog

I'd try to get it DFU mode a couple more times and if it won't go then I'd start from scratch (i.e. restore of iOS in iTunes, assuming you saved your SHSH blobs).

Easiest way I've found to get into DFU mode (YMMV):
- make sure all cables are disconnected from the atv2
- connect the microUSB cable from the atv2 to your computer
- wait for the rate of flashing to change, then plug in the power cord
- wait for the rate of flashing to change again, then hold Menu+Play for 7 sec
- wait for the rate of flashing to change again then let go of the buttons

Should be in DFU mode now.
