I have just tried to hack my AppleTV to run an external USB HD. Everything went fine, I enabled SSH and can even view the external HD when it is connected to the AppleTV. However I can not see the AppleTV within iTunes. I am running 2.1 on my Apple TV and I used the 2.1 OS Boot file. Is there a 2.1 file for the Patchstick file? Thanks in advance.

I have a 1.1 aTV which I have updated to the latest take two software. In step 6 above, should I d/l the 1.1 update anyway? If so, does anyone know where to get it? The link is no longer valid.

Was this made on a Leopard machine with just the Tiger install CD? Or does the machine also have to be running Tiger?

Could someone maybe remove this last past ? :p TanKH, you've already installed atvfiles, nitotv,... ? if you don't, you won't see nothing.

Help! I really need this going as my desktop hard-disk failed and I need to get my files out of the appleTV (it's my only hope - like Luke (but hmmm, Yoda also says there is another, I suppose that would be physical disassembly of the appleTV which I'm trying to avoid). Anyway, I followed all the instructions and it worked fine. Booting up into the patchstick also seemed to work (appleTV 2.1) and the terminal/messages shown is identical to the screenshot in this post. But rebooting appleTV I don't get any new menu items. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RMK, I had the same problem... I fixed after searching the awkwardtv forums (using google I searched for... File exists mkdir: /Volumes/Patchstick-root/stuff). There is a post there that suggests the following... unmount the stick then sudo rm -r /Volumes/Patchstick-root/ That fixed it for me.

This still works for ATV OS 2.1 for those wondering.
