    want to jailbreak ATV2 but have OSX 10.5.8 w/ powerpc
    I just got an ATV2 (ios 4.2.1). I would like the ability to stream programing and/or videos that are not solely apple encoded. It appears that the only current jailbreak for this requires a Mac w/ an Intel processor. I have a PowerPC (G5 w/ OSX 10.5.8) with no intention of getting a new one anytime soon. What are my options to be able to watch non-apple vids or possibly use a browser? Thx 4 the help

    What do you mean by "soley Apple encoded"?

    I have lots of media that was not encoded by Apple that plays on my ATV2.

    I will be talking **Video** in general as talking about breaking the code of a DVD is illegal and not permitted in this forum . . . .
    If you have taken a video with a camera and wish to watch it through your ATV then get yourself HandBrake and convert them to a format that is watchable on the ATV. If you use the preset ATV2 it will by default encode the video to .mp4 and so will be watchable on the ATV2
