what micro usb cable to get for apple tv

I am trying to find micro usb cable for my apple tv. Mainly for jailbreaking it.
Looking up on ebay, I do not know which one to buy.
Can anyone go ebay and put link on here?
just dont want to buy wrong one.

And, once you jailbreak it, you can just watch movies for free beside netflix?
I am already a member of netflix but it does not have recent movies at all.

I kinda want the movies where you can watch for 5.99 for rent.
will this movies watched as free?

I would hold off on jail breaking it, I have one but it's kind of useless now for icefilms and xmbc since Hollywood used the FBI to reach across the pond and arrest the guy who runs MegaVideo. The site is down and so are others!

If you want to get more out of your Apple TV, you could always look at installing the aTV flash on top of it. It becomes FAR more useful with aTV.

As far as the micro USB cable, any decent micro USB cable will work. I say "decent" because I had some issues getting a proper connection with a cheap cable.

If you have a newer BlackBerry, you can just use that cable.

You can use Navi-x in the interim until icefilms finds a new repository

well i would say about 40% of files on icefiilms are using rapidshare and the rest 2shared so it is up to you to see if you want to buy it to try but i say worse case scenario when you dont like it, just restore and return

You don't need a rapidshare premium account to use Icefilms on the ATV2. So that should not impact your decisions.

Slowly the files are coming back to Icefilms...The movies sources are pretty current, the older movies are slowly coming back...
The TV shows are not quite there yet.

Some people are having issues with the new Icefilms with RS/2Share as source. But for me, I have found that the RS/2Share is much better than Megaupload.

I find that the wait time for RS/2shared is much longer then megaupload but overall just glad that the sources are slowly coming back. Although i wouldnt mind it being more stable as sometimes the files just wont load on my atv
