Excuse me for being somewhat apprehensive after the recent experiences with the ATV and aTV Flash updates, but before I attempt to update to 4.0.2, I need some feedback on the installation procedure. I already have ATV 3.0.1 and aTV Flash 4.0.1 installed and I’m using an external HD as Primary.
The wiki states:
[i]Do I have to reinstall using a USB drive every time there is an update for aTV Flash?
No. In most cases aTV Flash can be updated right on the AppleTV through the Maintenance menu. A USB flash drive is only required for the initial installation and for updating aTV Flash after installing an AppleTV system update. [/i]
So this implies that I do not need to download onto the USB flash drive. Can this be confirmed? Can the external HD stay connected during the update process? I just wish that a detailed installation procedure covering various setups can be included with the update announcement.
