I have created patchstick before using above instruction. But, now after 2.1 update I tried creating patchstick and its not working. I am getting some error in last stage when I am copying files to USB stick. It says stick created successfully, but appleTV does not see it. I have tried erasing and formating USB stick and running .createpatchstick script again but I get same thing. Here is the last step output. what am I doing wrong ? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *989.5 Mi disk1 1: Apple_HFS Patchstick-root 80.0 Mi disk1s1 2: Apple_HFS Patchstick 909.5 Mi disk1s2 Patitions done.

Just an interesting note I've discovered: I tried a 4GB Lexar USB stick, and it rebooted and did absolutely nothing. I'm now using a 2GB Toshiba, and it works fine. Hope that helps folks like Risky and myself who ran into this.

I setup NFS by putting a mount statement in /etc/rc.local. Lately that has stopped working though, so it's somewhat of a manual process. I recently upgraded my ATV to 2.1 (to use the iphone remote) but haven't re-patched it, and I'm on vacation for the next month. When I get back I'll post the necessary commands. That said, I would say go with samba rather than nfs (samba was my first choice but wasn't working as well back then).

@Dustin: I have had same problem. you must delete the root directory manually before creating it again. this must be done in terminal. i found this solution in a forum. patchstick was then created without error message. i did not try yet but it should work now. cu

hey scott -- how do you set-up NFS? -- and can you use it to mount the iTV through the finder?...

Hi, i did everything like told, but nothing happened after reboot. only language selection. during last part of patchstick creatin the terminal says "cannot copy, file exists" but the script tells a success. what is wrong? apple tv 2.1 intel mac leopard. thankx bruno

AFAIK AFP does not work with ATV2. Samba or NFS do though, so look at setting those up instead.

anyone get AFP to work successfully?...

I did a factory restore. then updated to 2.0.1. then applied the patchstick again. and it worked just fine. I built my patchstick on a PPC using an intel version of tiger install disk mounted.

hmmm. I tried this on a PPC with all the correct intel versions. creating patchstick worked ok. booting the appletv worked ok. but on the appletv I now get a login screen (??). after a couple of minutes it reboots and I get the language setup. and then the whole process starts again. I'm just about to try factory restore. and then taking the disk out and going back to the old fashioned way. so the question I have (I didn't see it answered above): can this only be dne on an intel-based mac? as long as the factory restore works, I'm happy to try it again. thanks in advance
