I successfully jailbroke my APV2 yesterday using seasonpass.
I installed XBMC too and that works ok.

I wanted to install Nito and Plex and some other apps but I cant no longer log on to my ATV2 using Putty.

It wont accept the password alpine. I havent changed anything from yesterday, in fact due to being at work I've hardly had time to use my ATV2.

In Putty I am typing this -

ssh [email protected]
Then it wont accept the password alpine. I know you dont get to see what is being typed but it displays an error message - Access denied
Then after 3 attempts it closes the Putty browser.

Event Log is - 2012-04-26 12:05:00 Looking up host "192.168.0.xx"

Try to just input the IP - without the "ssh root@" and then use username: root and password:alpine to logon. That should work.

Need help? Check out my XBMC Frodo Guide. It contains full featured guides to Sickbeard and CouchPotato as well.
