Normally I never create a post with a capitalized title, however this really can’t be stressed enough.
Yesterday Apple release an update to the Apple TV which was set to fix a number of bugs in the 4.4 firmware, however, version 4.4.1 many users are reporting that after updating their Apple TVs have been bricked.
One 9to5Mac.com reader warns others about not updating:
Careful, it just bricked my apple TV….gave me the iTunes logo and a mini usb sign….plugging into my mac now…wish me luck….
Many say that they can bring their devices back to life by plugging them into their computers and restoring via iTunes, however, it seems the best option right now is to just steer clear of the 4.4.1 update altogether.
