    I bought an Apple TV 1 last week (for $27.25) and jailbroke it with ATVflash... It was pretty easy to jb, but took a while to figure out how to add add-ons and registries. Once I got that figured out, the ATV1 is awesome!

    It only has 3.0.2 or something so I guess this is unrelated to the 5.0.1 question.

    It didn't! I got it it all the way to loading the firmware(?) then at the end of the process it failed! I want to give it another go but would prefer to have some idea why this happened before I do?

    Hmmm, can't understand that Gabriel, i can only think maybe Cydia crashed out during the download.

    Well done nickcuban, great to hear of others jailbreaking there ATV's!

    I had that happen too Gabe. Couldn't see a reason, but it took perfectly well on the second attempt...

    I've jailborken my apple tv 2 , on the lateset version using seas0npass.
    It is a free jailbreak, it might be harder than atv flash but its free and you can get xbmc and other cool stuff
    So i think atv flash is really the same as other jailbreak applications

    I'm using my Appletv all the time now, I think XBMC is the main reason for this, it's just so easy to use!!

    Thanks for everyone's feedback, keep coming back and updating us on your uses, especially if you find a 'can't live without' app your using on it!

    AppleTV is one of the reasons for buying an iPad in my book. :)

    What is the additional functionality you get after jailbreaking please?
