    Hi. I have a JB aTV (Black) running v4.4.4 and JB with Seas0npass.

    I know if I want to restore I just connect it iTunes and restore that way, and I have previously done that. My question is even when I have restored this way, some JB file remain. I know that because when I re-JB and install some apps etc, their custom settings are still as before. If things were 100% wiped than that could not be the case.

    Can I simply SSH into the aTV and delete all the folders, or will that really break the aTV?

    Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.

    Why do you need to do that? Just do a restore and leave well enough alone...

    I know it seems a bit OCD but it's just something I want to do. As far as I am concerned, if after a restore in iTunes, JB/config/app files remain then that is NOT a 100% restore.

    In the PC world, I completely undertake a full install of Windows (what ever version I have installed at the time) every 12 months or so.Taking the PC back to format the HDD. This keeps the PC running sweet and removes all the dross.

    I want to do that with the Apple TV. If it is not possible then I will accept that, but if it is possible, I would like to know how to do it.

    I wouldn't worry about it. This isn't a windows machine that really benefits from a good wiping once in a while. I'm pretty sure the garbage doesn't accumulate like a PC.

    I haven't noticed the same thing with my device, though I don't have much more than XBMC installed. Every time I've restored, I've lost all of my settings.

    Yea, just let iTunes do it's thing. It'll be fine. This is an Apple product, it doesn't need the babysitting a windows machine does.
