jalaram 02-15-2013 08:05 AM

NE OOS as well.

maxxve 02-15-2013 08:07 AM

Dang it! Too late on both of them.

Maybe they are blowing out stock before the jailbreak is released for the ATV3

scrapplejoe 02-15-2013 08:07 AM

these jailbroken go for $150+ on ebay

BodegaBay 02-15-2013 08:09 AM

Got one thanks OP. Now I get to see what the hoopla is all about.

astroff 02-15-2013 08:13 AM

missed it

JL889 02-15-2013 08:16 AM

Sad times. I've been wanting one for awhile.

BilboFraggins 02-15-2013 08:20 AM

Dammit, missed it too. The half hour I was off SD.:(

imposteroak 02-15-2013 08:22 AM

Damn it, went OOS in the few minutes it took me to vacuum my house.

toromac 02-15-2013 08:23 AM

These deals go by in the blink of an eye. I had one in my cart then hesitated looking to see if the ATV3 had a JB forthcoming. OOS. Buy first think later- the SD motto. I won't let it happen again. Really let myself down haha.

drozek 02-15-2013 08:25 AM

damn would have bought 5:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-TV-...337fe335ef

$183 on jailbroken one

DaSRoT 02-15-2013 08:30 AM

How is this a good deal? Because it can be jailbroken and ATV3 can't?

Yep. I have 4 Apple TV 2nd gens at home and 2 backups just in case. I have not paid a cable bill since September 2010 and couldn't be happier with it! This is due to the 2nd gen can be jailbroke and xbmc installed. However, the raspberry pi is another cheap alternative that is more reasonably priced. I hate I missed this though.

berkserk 02-15-2013 08:33 AM

still available, ordered 5.

i still don't understand why ppl would pay up to 200 for these thing? when a pc can do everything a appletv does or a ipad. they just going to use it for XBMC which can be install on e verything

justpassedu 02-15-2013 08:53 AM

What is the huge difference between these and the 3rd gen ? I know the 1080p in the 3rd gen and the 2nd gen can be jailbroken with more features at the moment but cant you jb the 3rd gen also ? I cant see a huge reason to get the 2nd gen over the 3rd someone help me decide ? I do already have a ipad2 jb with all the good stuff and hdmi tv connect cable , can xbmc be installed on ipad ?

You've already listed the reason to get an 2nd Gen over a 3rd Gen. With no JB in sight for the 3rd Gen, the only way to get XBMC on an ATV is to go 2nd Gen. If you already have an JB iPad 2 and are happy to use it for your media needs rather than a dedicated media device then there is no reason to get an ATV - 2nd or 3rd Gen.

Now with jb on the 3rd, as u assumed, no reason to get this REFURB when u can get new 3rd for 100

justpassedu 02-15-2013 09:06 AM

sorry guys lol not sure if 3rd gen is jailboken fully , i get mixed answers on google search . either way i have a ipad2 w/jb so i can pretty much do same thing as apple tv2 correct and just buy the 3rd gen for mirroring from my ipad2 ? I hate using my hdmi cable runing to tv from ipad2 as the wire always comes loose , rather be able to do it via airplay .

If airplay or HDMI out to your tv does what you are wanting then there is no need to get a apple tv. IMO the apple tv just makes it easier. Once its JB and hooked up to your TV, thats it. You will have a update from time to time, but XBMC has a auto update feature or notification to allow you to do the update itself. As far as a 3rd gen jailbreak goes, not happening anytime soon to the best of my knowledge.

On the other hand, a rumored aTV4 with an app store, could be a very nice product.

When I see a SDK for the Apple tv then I might believe that, but until then just analysts speculation.

SlidingBike 02-15-2013 09:10 AM

Question: Other than being able to jailbreak the ATV2, whats that much demand for it beyond its 720P? ATV3 is much better(but cant be jailbroken, which I am expecting to happen soon). Experts.. help me to understand this.

Find something else with a footprint this small that can have XBMC installed and can also utilize airplay.

I have an PC in my main system. But for a family room, nothing beats a hacked AppleTV in my opinion. XBMC can play just about anything I throw at it. I use it to play ISO, MP4, MKV, etc from my NAS. Airplay is the icing on the cake. I can play my home videos from my iPhone, stream music from my iTunes library or phone, and now use HBO GO via airplay.

The only downside is the mediocre video processing at times. My son loves the old Transformers cartoons and they can be a bit jittery since they are 24fps.

I'd love to replace it with something a little more powerful, but I haven't found anything small that can do it this well.

Thats about it alto being able to jailbreak it goes quite far :)

AT3 jailbreak is far off

Jailbreaking the ATV2 is the reason why there's so much demand for it. That and they haven't been made in over a year so supply is very small.

ph7 02-15-2013 09:15 AM

I have an ATV3, and a jailbroken ATV2 with ATV flash. I prefer my ATV3, using Plex with either my Iphone or Ipad. The Plex interface is so much better, and more reliable, than the ATV flash media player on ATV2. There really isn't anything I can do on my jailbroken ATV2 that I can't accomplish with ATV3. HBOGO is now airplay compatible, Showtime should follow shortly. And, of course, the menus are snappier on the ATV faster processor) and its 1080 v 780. if I wasn't so lazy, I'd sell the ATV2 on Ebay, buy another ATV3, and pocket the difference.

There were very few people that were actually working on a apple tv 3 jailbreak and one of the most prominent has put it on the back burner apparently.

While I don't disagree with you, many people do not have an iPhone or iPad to airplay videos to their appletv3. It also add another layer of complication for troubleshooting if you ever have issues.

I wish I could just get Plex as a native app for AppleTV and call it a day. I'd pay $15-20 for it. Cmon apple work with us here!

Going to have to wait for their next product announcement for that. But its possible for them to add the app store (and subsequently plex) to the aTV3 with a firmware update and/or sell a heftier aTV4 aimed at competing with consoles.

abeagler 02-15-2013 09:32 AM

The ATV2 can be jailbroken; however, to use the fun stuff, you'll want to check what the firmware version is, and whether you can downgrade if it's on the latest firmware. While there is a jailbreak available for iOS6.1 (aka 5.2 on the ATV), XBMC is not yet supported on this version of iOS. If these ATV2 models already come with the latest iOS on there, you'll likely need to wait for XBMC to be updated. (I do not know if the firmware can be downgraded; if it can, then you could go that route).

As for whether these are useful, I love my jailbroken ATV2. I use XBMC to stream WatchESPN and Amazon Prime movies, and I use Airplay to stream from my home server. Connecting a computer has its appeal (I considered doing so with a Mac Mini), but this interface is simple enough for my kid to use it, the footprint is low, and the price was nice.

apple tv3 has few processes or services running at the background, which makes it difficult to find a security vulnerability

berkserk 02-15-2013 09:38 AM

has anyone get an email from newegg with the subject line "Out Of Stock Order Voided‏" ?

toromac 02-15-2013 09:38 AM

Apple TV 3 will be JB sooner rather than later. The new jailbreak vulnerability just needs to be adapted for the ATV3.

Just as a follow up to my previous post, posters over at the firecore forums say they are able to downgrade the firmware. Instructions are on the first page, and people on the last page of the thread seem to be indicating they can still go this route to downgrade:

i downgraded an apple tv 2 last week, it will be possible to downgrade as long as apple's signature servers signs the old firmware.

Yes. You can install everything the ATV2 has on your ipad and output it to your tv. It's just not as streamlined...being able to hit the remote and go! :D But it does work the same

ahmed 02-15-2013 09:46 AM

i bought one off of craigslist for $40 a while back. took the time to jailbreak it then sold it on ebay. I got it mainly to watch hulu but the performance was shaky at best.

These ATV2's really need to be plugged in to the router directly. Wifi can be iffy if people close are on the same channel or if you have a weak connection

It wasn't a connection kind of issue. It was more like it will sometime play the commercials over and over and never get to the show or play parts of the show then stop etc.. I would rather pay the $8 / months and not have to deal with it.

barrmulio 02-15-2013 09:53 AM

dammit missed out again..that was fast....

so for those of you doing xbmc - what other *$99* device do you have it on? or just waiting for ouya?

short comments to a lot of the conversations
- atv 2 has low level exploit so it can always be jailbroken
- atv 3 has no jb in sight, noone is working on it for the last two jb iterations, and current jb cannot be adapted
- if you have a jb i-device, you can airplay xbmc, but it's a bit laggy from my experience (ipad2->atv2)
- xmbc isn't the same as plex..many of us value not needing to have a plex server running in the background and just connecting straight to a nas

of course not the same functionality...it's the same xbmc, but I had a bit of lag/sync problems, plus the added work of grabbing your ipad to pick the video and send via airplay vs just using the atv2 remote...

Dealwagon 02-15-2013 10:01 AM

I frickin hateonline carts..

I had a couple in my cart on newegg earlier and as I was checking out, they were removed. In other words, someone snatched them from my cart as I was checking out. Try that in real life here in the south and see what happens.. ;)

Really? I want you to explain this one to me? Since some of the vulnerabilities used by evasi0n do not exist on the Apple TV and the mobilebackup that was used to inject absinthe is not present on the Apple TV either??

If there was a A4 chip in the ATV 3 then it would be a different story, but its not. This is how the Apple TV 2 will stay Jailbroke due to the limera1n exploit of the a4 chip.

This sounds a lot like a settings issue. The plugins evolve and require a change in settings such as the Ad Server to bypass. Once done, you can get uninterrupted playback. I will say that wifi playback is sketchy so plugging directly to a router is the best option.

No worries. But if you look at both completed listings, no one ordered more than 5. Really no excuse for voiding orders when buyers stayed within the limit set by Newegg.

I was only a few from the first buyer and my order got voided. If it's by time ordered most people will have their order cancelled

Mydiscover 02-15-2013 11:55 AM

easy 80 dollar profit on each.... Gotta love SD...

adster 02-15-2013 12:21 PM

I ended up ordering 2 via NewEgg and just got the tracking number. Been looking for one of these for a while and wasn't going to pay $200 for it. Thanx, OP!

Who knows how they do it. I've only placed a few orders with Newegg via Ebay and now this is the second cancellation. They ended up making things right on the first one, but if they truly screwed up and don't have enough stock, not too hopeful with this one.

Saw this thread almost immediately when it was posted. Still was too late to score the eBay deal. But fortunately I came back to the thread and saw where OP had posted the direct Newegg link. Managed to place that order b4 it went out of stock. And now my order has shipped! :-)

Hey there!
I was wondering if anybody here was willing to sell one of these Apple TVs to me... I really want one, but I don't wanna pay 200. I am offering 140 (FL shipping included) to anybody interested. Please PM me if you got too many of these and want a quick sale... I'm in desperate need of one of these things, please help a fellow SD'er...

pumm3l 02-15-2013 06:54 PM

what makes these worth $200 compared to the latest version is it supply and demand? weren't these $90 new? Why not buy the new one for this price?

Because this is a discontinued model that has a great advantage over the newer model. It can be jailbroken and modded to watch TV shows and movies from a file sharing community online. Most people who own this thing can ditch their cable company because of all the content you can find...

It's selling for over 200 pretty much everywhere.

The new version can't be jailbroken? is that the only reason why the old version is selling for so much? Hardware wise how do they compare? I imagine once the new version is jaillbroken then then that'll kill off this one?

We want every experience to be a good one. I really apologize for this. The order was voided for being out of stock. We only had so many allocated for the eBay store, and I apologize that the remaining quantity was not reflecting accurate information. Your refund has already been issued. We are just reaching out to you to apologize for the inconvenience. I have noted your account to take $10.00 off your next purchase, just to say we are sorry! Thank you -Stacey

If you got your ebay order canceled might be worth it to send them a messege to get a $10 credit.

Damn, that negates the deal. Lets see how newegg handles it.

laiberg 02-19-2013 05:25 PM

Spent 25 mins waiting on the phone and Newegg denies this is a issue. Told me that this is out of stock and will have to return the item to them.

Rude CR, no credit, no sorry. I guess I will take my shopping elsewhere.

dvrvarma 02-19-2013 08:30 PM

Can some one tell which instructions you guys used to jail break this one. Whats the SW version on this ?

I am trying to use these instructions. Are they reliable ?

ualymerej 02-19-2013 09:24 PM

I received a 3rd gen as well :( hopefully they'll find some stock of 2nd gens to replace this...

Oops looks like I received 3rd gen as well. So stupid I spent like 2 hrs trying to jail break. Mine is MD199LL/A which is 3rd gen.

astroff 02-21-2013 09:25 AM

joogle 02-22-2013 03:12 PM
