Took me 1 full day getting OSX 10.6 on MacMini (was on 10.4), and another 2 hours to get the Jailbreak working with PwnageTool…
But finally, yes we are in!
Here are some hints on the process..
1/. You DO NOT need power cable on ATV2G, only microUSB cable is needed, unplug the power cord.
2/. You will need the ATV2G remote to go into DFU mode, get it ready.
3/. Normal overall process is about 15mins.
4/. Follow the on screen instruction on PwnageTool to get into DFU mode, you may want to bring up log to see what is happening.
5/. The default password after Jailbreak is: alpine, change it please after you ssh in using passwd.
6/. I encounter many error 1602, thats why it took me 2 hours, it may related to I did not reboot after new install of iTune10.
Ok, I will start my hacks next.
– Get most command line apps I want to use installed by apt-get, found some interesting things on the FS…lets see how it turns out…
