Great stuff. Thanks. Worked fined as a charm. Such a shame Boxee is not supported anymore. But as a workaround I DL the XeeBo skin for the XBMC and it is as good as the original. Thank you again!

ATV USB Creator failed for me on the "Create Using" step - Downloading 2Z694-5573-24.dmg... Download failed: HTTP Error 404: Not Found I have a brand new Apple TV (probably v3.0.1) coming today - I suspect this patchstick may not work with it anyway... :-/

I have just updated to V3.0. ATV USB Creator seems to patch the system fine, but you don't get an XBMC link or anything and none of the software installed during patching seems to either appear in the menus or work when you select it. I would think that Apple have closed off some of the loopholes that allows the software to be patched.

I keep on getting the same error code - and I have tried 4 different USB flashdrives. Anyone know what the problem is? Here is what appears in the ATV USB Creator window: 2Z694-5660-029.dmg selected Creating USB Flash Disk... umount_disk settling delay (10 seconds) partition the target disk umount_disk settling delay (10 seconds) install recovery onto target disk Unable to mount image: hdiutil: attach failed - Resource busy install_recovery failed Failed!
