Second-generation Apple TV users across the globe are reporting that they are not able to update their devices to the latest firmware. The complaints can be seen on a sizable thread on Apple’s Support Communities website.
The complaints detail problems with updates that leave the users unable to update their Apple TV via the device itself or via iTunes. In some cases users have reported being left with a non-functioning “bricked” Apple TV. Others are reporting that Apple is aware of the problem and that it might be related to problems Apple is experiencing with their update servers.
The problem is allegedly going to be resolved on June 28th, it doesn’t necessarily affect everyone, and it appears to be occurring across multiple geographical locations.
