    Though the new 1080p Apple TV 3 and the iTunes 10.6 enables to play 1080p video, it
    only support 1080p in h.264 format.

    Apple TV still cannot import, stream and play 1080p HD video which is in MKV,
    AVI, WTV, WMV, FLV, WebM, AVCHD, MPG, DivX, MXF, and VOB etc format.

      I had to restore because, for some reason, I had lost netflix after a successful jailbreak. Apple just released the latest build 5.0 today. My bad luck. Anyone know if the 4.4.4 jailbreak would work on a 5.0 build? If not, when can we expect a 5.0 untethered jailbreak?
