Apple have issued another update for the Apple TV, this time the update is 4.4.2 and should fix the install problems of 4.4.1. Many people were reporting that 4.4.1 was bricking their device and Apple pulled the update after a few hours of releasing it. This update should fix that problem and Apple recommends if you have 4.4.1 you reset your device before starting.

I installed the update and it does reset the device completely so you have to do through the initial setup again including the wireless setup and iTunes account details.

Apple TV devices with software version 4.4 and 4.4.1 have an issue with updating software to later versions. The recommended way to resolve this is go to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset All Settings, prior to updating. Note: If you apply the software update without resetting all settings first, the updater will reset the settings for you.

Once the Apple TV has been reset, you can then successfully update to the latest software by going to Settings -> General -> Update Software.

We recognize that this is an inconvenience and apologize.
