Hi all,

I just got a apple tv 1 last night. I only used the atvflash 4.5 silver stick to jail break it and installed xbmc.

When I try to use winscp to get into the apple tv 1 using my IP address and name: frontrow password: frontrow

I keep getting "network connection refused". Have also tried [email protected] instead of my IP address also, but doesnt work.

Am I doing something incorrectly? Is there a solution for this? I've tried to search the forums but can't find the answer.

Thanks in advance!

Alpine/frontrow or frontrow/frontrow or root/frontrow or root/alpine

Try 1 at a time andsee if any of them work?

And there maybe another combination but cant remember

It's atv / atv
I only tried frontrow/frontrow and atv/atv and both of these didn't work for me. But when I connected to my other apple tv 1 in another room using frontrow/frontrow, it was fine.

Anyways, I went ahead and installed crystalbuntu directly to my internal drive last night and it is pretty awesome. I posted a little review in my other post.

Try pressing and holding the menu and minus keys during boot for 5-10 seconds as unit is turned on. This should force the recovery boot process.

It should force it to recognize the flash drive in the USB by forcing the recovery boot process.
