Only thing I've read is ability to "stream purchased shows from the cloud" and adding Vimeo.

Yes. Wait for a jaibreak update, and the test of xbmc on this new firmware.

Help! I'm new to here but just tonight my atv2 keeps crashing out of xbmc. I did have the updates enabled but have now disabled them, however it still keeps crashing out. Only on xbmc not on iTunes homesharing? Is there anything I can do to sort this out ?

I just installed my new ATV2 yesterday, I did the error of immediately upgrading it. I have to wait until this version is jailbreakable to put XBMC on it? There is no way to downgrade this with something like tinyUmbrella, or changing the hosts file?

Thanks in advance

I did this exact same thing last night on a brand new atv2 as well, and you're not out of luck! Just run seas0npass on it as you would normally (see the faq's) and it should all work fine. Mine did. When it asks you if you want itunes to automatically restore, click yes, and other than that seas0npass does all the work for you (you'll need to push the buttons for DFU mode too, but it spells that out too). I think the only loss is if you already had xbmc on there, when we'd lose our settings. But since our atv's are both brand new, the jailbreakability must have been unaffected.

What is the firmware version on your ATV2? All posts on the firecore forum indicate that Seas0npass does not yet work with 4.3 8F455.
