I run iREB and am able to get my ATV2 into DFU mode (ie, the popup comes up and tells me it was successful.), but the problem is that in iTunes, the Apple TV doesn't show up while in DFU mode? I can plug it in normally and boot it and it shows up in iTunes, but as soon as I try to use iTunes while in DFU mode, there is no AppleTV listed?? I can hear my USB "noise" from windows going off, then on, then off again while doing the iREB process, and if I am watching iTunes, i see it show up and then quickly dissapear as soon as it gets to DFU mode. Am I doing something wrong here?? I *believe* i did a factory restore using iTunes early on in the process when I thought I had it in DFU mode and did a restore without selecting a custom firmware, but from reading this thread that doesn't seem to matter. What should I try?
A couple of things, is the VM off? You'll need to make sure that the VM isn't "grabbing" the device. The DFU mode has a different driver so I'd check in Device Manager to see if anything is listed. It should be listed as an Apple Mobile device.
