    Exclamation Help! Apple tv 2nd gen not Resoring!
    Help!!

    I have The Apple tv 2nd Gen.

    5.02 software.

    Itunes 10.7

    And Windows 7 unlimited 64Bit.

    Today I tried to jailbreak the device through seas0npass.

    I followed your instructions.

    But when the end of the process I got this error message:

    Your Apple TV could not be restored to original factory condition. Try again or go to Apple - Support for help." (-1)

    Now, i just want my AppleTV to work again and i just cant.

    And I just can not find the solution.

    I tried to restore It with DFU mode,

    to download the ispw and tried to shift+restore,

    And I tried the two together.

    Please help me! i'm desperate.

    Right now' my apple tv i not working at all.
    on my screem i have the iTunes logo + USB cable.

    10x. Daniel.

    Hi,
    I may have misunderstood what you are saying so apologies if you have already tried this method.

    You should be able to do a factory restore through iTunes by plugging the unit into your computer with a micro-usb to USB cable.

    The unit will show in the 'Devices' pane and you will get the option to restore it from there.

    Sorry, I don't jailbreak or run windows. It does appear deeper, if it's under warranty then fetch it back and see if they'll fix it or give you a replacement.

    There is any place i can check my warranty online? by the serial number?

    You think i can solve it with Xcode on mac?

    Jailbreaking voids your warranty. That is, unless, you can get the device back to factory firmware. But as soon as they see you've messed with the firmware, you're done.

    Possibly, but given the state it appears to be in, interacting with the machine or forcing it to accept different firmware is going to be very difficult, if not impossible.

    I'm surprised that starting it in DFU mode, while tethered and with iTunes running, wasn't enough to correct it.

    Good luck.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
