Bricked Apple TV - could it be fixed with a jailbreak?
I have an AppleTv 2. Well past warranty so I'm going to need to sort it out myself.
It worked fine until one day...it didn't. Basically it just stopped being recognised by my 2 televisions (same ones it had always worked on previously). There was no reason for this that I could see - I had not updated it, it has never been jailbroken and I hadn't even unplugged it since the last time I'd used it (only the day prior).
Basically the only thing that came up on the screen was 'no signal'.
Since then I've done the following:
- Restored it to no avail (the apple logo shows up for a few seconds but then it reverts back to 'no signal')
- Waited for new updates which I installed from my computer in the hopes that new updates might fix it (they didn't)
- Tried it on 3 other TVs - interestingly at one point it worked on one of those TV's (not mine I'm afraid). As per other things I've read I tried changing the output but this didn't effect it's use on the other TVs at all. Now a screen come up on the 1 TV it works on and starts with a setup menu but it doesn't respond to the remote.
I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck jailbreaking a TV to get it unbricked? Given it had never been jailbroken before I wondered if it may just give it new life. I've downloaded Seas0nPass (it's having trouble downloading the ipsw though) but wanted to see if anyone had any other pieces of advice.
