Icon5 iTunes 10.0.1 does not see new ATV2 4.0?

Just got my new ATV2 that came with iOS 4.0

I want to jailbreak it but before I dive into JBing my new ATV2 I want to backup any and all SHSH Blobs.

However iTunes does not see my ATV2 at all. I plug in AC power cable and the micro usb cable but iTunes does not see it at all. Thus TinyUmbrella 4.1.11 does not see it either.

When I go into the about area of the TV Menu it shows it has iOS 4.0 (Not 4.1) Could this be the problem? Do I need to update it to 4.1 first?

Any Ideas?

Thanks,

MC

Well I read the post a few times and didnt have any luck.

Any other thoughts?

Thanks again,

I found this thread on apples support site. They are saying that the ATV2 does not show in itunes. Is this correct? How am I supposed to get tinyumbrella to see it to backup my SHSH for it if my computer does not see it?

How do I get the ECID of my AppleTV 2 if it doesnt show in ITunes or TinyUmbrella? Im trying to hurry and get any and all SHSH's I can before its too late.

~MC

---------- EDIT ----------

Do I need to update it from iOS 4.0 to iOS 4.1 before I can expect this to work?

I have been reading up on putting it into DFU mode but still neither iTunes or Windows Device Manager see the device. Grrrrr.

~MC

---------- EDIT ----------

OK. So much for the thought of it needing to be updated. Even though it shows "Software Version 4.0" is must be running iOS 4.1. The built in update function says its already up to date.

Im using TinyUmbrella 4.1.11

I cant even really tell if its in DFU mode or not since I cant have the TV and the MicroUSB cable plugged in at the same time (the 2 ports are to close).

Im guessing the ATV2 needs to be powered via the AC power cable.

I wait for it to boot up into the normal menu then

Hold MENU and DOWN for 6 secs then the LED starts to flash really fast

I then let go of MENU and DOWN and HOLD MENU and PLAY for a while yet itunes never says anything at all. I dont see the ATV in the GUI on the left anywhere. Eventualy (about 10sec later or so the ATV just reboots back into normal mode).

I am using a microusb cable from my external western digital HD. the cable is about 1 foot long or so. I know the cable is good. Its almost like its not going into DFU mode.

Does the ATV need to be in DFU mode for TinyUmbrella to see it?

Thanks,

~MC

---------- EDIT ----------

Im worried that I will not be able to get my SHSH blobs for my ATV before apple stops signing them.

Maybe I misunderstood but even if apple comes out with a new firmware for ATV2 will LR or GP still be able to JB my ATV if I dont have my SHSH blobs?

Is there any other way I can get the ECID from my ATV2?
