Icon5 Should I stay on 4.4.4 or upgrade to 5.0.2?

My ATV2 on 4.4.4 just works fine I mostly use XBMC and File Streaming from PC to ATV2 and use my iPad2 as a remote for ATV2.
Did you guys upgrade and did you have to reinstall all XBMC stuff again?
Is by now everything which was supported on 4.4.4 also working on 5.1.2?
Have fun

I have upgraded 4 so far, all working well.
You will have to install all xbmc stuff again.( there is an option to copy your old XBMC folder form your old IOS but I personally prefer a clean instal.)
The easiest way seems to be SeasonPass for Jailbreak and then aTVflash 1.6 to install NitoTv and XBMC etc.
Then use sinful repo for the add ons
SinfulXBMC Installer - Easily Install Add-ons for XBMC - No More SSH - SiNfuL iPhone
Everything seems to work well except Overflow.
Good luck,

On 4.4.4 an all is working great.

Does the new update bring any improvements?

Does it make xbmc run better ?

Cheers !
The only way to learn is to jump in and read as much as possible!

Ipad2's JB
ATV2 JB

Thanks for the great tips!!! I don't use Overflow anyway will give it a try.
I have also a ATV3 HD1080P with Factory shipped FW (All SHSH blobs on TU saved) will see if I have to upgrade that one to the latest or not. There is no JB anyway, but did see the new Navigation on 5.x vs the one I have on 4.4.4 for ATV2. Not quite sure if this is really better just looks fancy but might be even slower to navigate.
Anyway something to play with

Apart from the new layout the only difference I have found is you can now switch off the ATV2 by holding in the main button on the remote.
It would be good to be able to change the order of the new menu icons.
XBMC runs the same as far as I can tell.

Yeah, if you paid for Remote HD... 5.0.1/2 sucks. I use Rowmote which works great on it. I like the new icon layout. It looks more like iOS now.

5.0.2 is still available for update and jailbreak. Just download the latest Seas0nPass and run it. It will do all the work for you.

You can't save 4.4.4 anymore. Apple is no longer signing it. Your only restore option is to upgrade to 5.0.2.

I see. I thought you can save it, cause I like the overflow set up. For some reason is crashed on me when watching a movie.

You can only save SHSH blobs WHILE they are being signed.

I would say, if you want to update to 5.0.2 just remember these are the changes,

1. No More List names but Icons
2. No More MainMenuSlideShow
3. No More OverFlow
4. No Back down to 4.4.4 unless you have Saved your ShSh
5. Some Apps may not be compatible

except these changes its great Update, and it better Security patches
Iphone 4 16GIG 4.1 BB 2.10.04 Jailbroken
Iphone 3Gs 16GIG 4.2.1 BB 6.15. Jailbroken Unlocked
Iphone 3G 8Gig 3.1.3 BB 5.11.03 Jailbroken Unlocked

In the meantime I bought a MacBook Air 13in and updated it to Mountain Lion which supports AirPlay to Apple TV. But it doesn't work for ATV2 on FW 4.4.4 so you would have to update to 5.0.2 as long you can before IOS6 is released which will happen soon. Or you are lucky to have a 2nd ATV3 which you don't mind to be on original FW anyway since no JB is out. For $100 not too bad anyway

Did finally update yesterday to 5.0.2 then installed atv flasch black 1.7 win again and then installed from there all tools like XBMC and so on again. And thanks to Sinfuliphone there is a nice instruction on how to add quickly add-ons in XBMC again Everything worked well so far, and now AirPlay works with my MBA13 too.
